JOHN MARTYN:
On The Cobbles (INDEPENDIENTE)

The Scottish folksmith collaborates with a Wurlitzer playing Paul Weller and the Verve's Nick McCabe on his latest release, laced with soft-rock guitars and experimental devilment.

sitenote:
This was published in the F.Y.I. section with a very small Lawrence Watson picture.
The same issue carried a story "Worst Luck" about the Johnny Too Bad documentary.

John Martyn

Blues

There’s a poignant dedication on John Martyn’s new album to the surgical team and nurses of orthopaedic ward one at Waterford hospital in Ireland, where last year he had part of one leg removed after an infection. But you can’t keep a good man down, particularly one such as Martyn who has had to deal with a variety of misfortunes in his troubled career, from chronic alcoholism to being produced by Phil Collins.
