JOHN MARTYN: 'Please Fall In Love With Me' (WEA). Slow, unexciting exercise, rendered even less successful by a Phil Collins production that shoves Martyn's remarkable voice to the back and has a bleeding great drum thumping away in the thick of it and drowning all else out. Sounds suspiciously like Collins' horrible gurgley voice on backing vocals, too; why can't he be content with boring half the world to death with his own wretched records?
Phil will be pleased… This verdict was published in Record Mirror of 19th September 1981 and credited 'Sunie'.
