John Martyn: BBC Live In Concert

(Island) * * * *

FANS will know that the only predictable thing about John Martyn is his unpredictability. His live performances can touch the heights, and sometimes just bumble along.

Although his voice occasionally isn't at its best on a couple of songs in these sessions, recorded in Paris and London over a 10-year period 1, there are plenty of good (and now and then great) moments that more than compensate.

Con la pubblicazione nel novembre 2005 delle ristampe rimasterizzate dei primi album di John Martyn, quelli del fertile periodo Island, la Universal finalmente recupera e ripropone gli splendidi frutti artistici dei primi anni del cantautore e musicista inglese, aggiungendo alla limpida brillantezza sonora di un'accurata rimasterizzazione digitale una messe di bonus track mai pubblicata prima d'ora.
