SO FAR SO GOOD - John Martyn - Island ILPS 9484 - Producer: John Martyn & John Wood - List: 6.98
This collection of tracks from previous Martyn LP's is an acoustical gem of mostly folk-flavored material sung in a gentle easygoing vocal style that has the power in reserve to bare clenched teeth and raw emotion on occasion. Traditional jazz arrangements are at the base of many of the selections here and the upright bass suggests that smoky jazz/ folk ambience. For varied playlists.
