Singing in the Rain

Malcolm Heyhoe, Paul Hunter
Liquorice #4

cover story..Of all the people we've seen this year, one of them, means more to us than any of the others. John Martyn; and his inclusion in Liquorice is both timely and essential. John's music is highly cathartic, and deeply emotive. His personal 'philosophy' of love as the only answer is manifested in a quite remarkable fashion within his superb songs. And coupled with this is his seemingly inborn dislike and mistrust of the music business and its nefarious activities.
