Dancing – Island WIP 6414

27 Jan 1978

JOHN MARTYN: 'Dancing' (Island WIP 6414).
Clear-eyed, grain-voiced Martyn has a totally unique way with the world; for one thing he's got round the old synthesiser bogy as to make it Undetectable in Normal Everyday Use. Dancing is an exhilarating, hypnotic, solipsistic [OK, look it up] miniature masterpiece which though it's off the One World album really does make a supreme single. And you wanna get up and dance.

Please God, let it be number one.

But it won't be, the swine. Buy the album anyway.
