ONE WORLD - John Martyn - Island ILPS 9492 - Producer: Chris Blackwell - List: 7.98
In a world where favorite musical styles are used by hundreds of performers, John Martyn stands out as unique. His songs are best described as somewhere between blues and mysticism, with Martyn's distinctive vocals the key ingredient. He interprets rather than sings his songs in a voice like a quiet Joe Cocker. AOR stations should give a close listen to cuts like Dealer and Couldn't Love You More, both featuring Steve Winwood.
