John Martyn [Roadrunner]

Roadrunner Vol 1 #5

John Martyn has just finished his second tour of Australia 1. He says he'd like to do many more. In fact he'd like to tour more often and give up recording. He's back in England now, finishing off an album with British jazz-man Neil Ardley, and beginning work on his new set. The Ardley album, The Harmony Of The Spheres, is, says Martyn, "very jazzing... maybe a little bit straighter than Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows. Not much straighter. In fact it might even be further out - it depends what you're into."

Melbourne, Dallas Brooks Hall, 19 Jul 1978

His fingers didn't leave his hands


John Martyn grits his teeth, rocks back on his chair and rolls his guitar across his knee as a wave of sustained notes surges through Dallas Brooks Hall. The scene is Wednesday night's concert. He is playing Inside Out [sic], a stunning combination of virtuosity on amplified acoustic guitar involving the use of Echoplex, wah-wah pedal, stereo projection and lyricism. The concert, a blend of folk, rock and Caribbean influences, was a success.
