In a world where favorite musical styles are used by hundreds of performers, John Martyn stands out as unique.
Sulla seconda facciata qualcosa di migliore come «One World» e «Smiling Stranger» non basta a sollevare questo album. Tenete a mente «Bless The Weather», «Solid Air» e «Inside Out» se volete conoscere John Martyn.
Dat het in hetzelfde genre beslist ook anders kan bewijst de elpee One World (Island ILPS 9492) van de Brit John Martyn.
A John Martyn album always makes for interesting and pleasant listening and his latest is no exception.
MARTYN'S ONE WORLD
NOW this is a beauty. At first appearances, One World is not standard Martyn fare - glossy cover and a slick production job. But it's a very warm, full-sounding album, feels synonymous with an armchair before an open fire, somewhat stoned, keeping the cold winter at bay.
John Martyn's One World (Island L36457) adds another to his tally of impressive albums.
The definitive John Martyn album, however, will be in your shops very soon. Called One World, the album is his finest achievement to date.
