Record Roundup

Short cuts: It's always a joy to hear from John Martyn, if only to know the troubled Scottish singer-songwriter is still alive. Sapphire (Island) finds Martyn in his best form since the epochal Grace & Danger in 1980. This self-produced effort pays liner note tribute to singer Robert Palmer but it's obvious Martyn, although still as boozy-voiced and melancholic as ever, has cleaned up his act. An unassuming record for late nights and snowy days...
