Stormbringer! - Island ILPS 9113

1 Mar 1970
Record Song Book

Some time ago we were mightily impressed with an album called The Tumbler by a Glasgow-born folksinger/ guitarist named JOHN MARTYN. John, a quiet sensitive boy, wrote gentle songs of love and birds, flowers and trees, and he sang them to his guitar as he travelled the country. Then he met Beverley who came from Coventry and who also sang pretty songs. They fell in love, married, and now they're making music together. All of which brings us to this new album Stormbringer on Island ILPS 9113. It's by John and Beverley and it's an attention-grabber from beginning to end.
