Couldn't Love You More, John Martyn, (Festival).

BLESSED with a deep and soulful voice, the Glaswegian guitarist-vocalist has been faulted in recent years for more style than substance.

From the first moments of the opening song, Lonely Love, Martyn achieves a seductive sound with a blend of majestic, husky vocal and lush backing including keyboard, saxophone, drum, congas backing.

Guitarist John Martyn Revives His Own Sound

coverDecember 6, 1993 - The progressive rock stations of the late 1960s were good to Scottish guitarist John Martyn. Since that time, he's been known primarily to other guitar players, having faded from the airwaves. If Martyn is known beyond the world of musicians, it's for his song "May You Never," which was recorded by Eric Clapton. Now, Martyn is making something of a comeback by reviving his own sound.
