22 May 1982
JOHN MARTYN (Duke/Atlantic DU 4041)
Couldn't Love You More (3:48) (Island Music Inc. - BMl) (J. Martyn) (Producer: P. Collins)
Glaswegian Martyn is a longtime fave of the English music press, which seemed to feel that his brand of folk cum jazz would never reach a mass audience. This cult artist may well prove them wrong with this debut for Genesis' Duke label. A tender love song that softly stirs his jazz and folk styles together, it's perfect for A/C and pop. Genesis' Phil Collins produced, played drums and added his vocals to Martyn's.
This review was actually of a promotional single and got published in Cash Box of 22 May 1982.
