"Johnny Boy Would Love This. ... A Tribute to John Martyn"
(Hole In the Rain/Liaison Music/V2)
Whatever the style of the cover version, Martyn's poetic truths shine through.
Sid Smith 2011-08-12
However affectionate a tribute album, they can still make you wish classic songs, like historic buildings, could somehow be listed to preserve their original splendour.
