Look A Whole New Look..

Big Muff is back with a totally new design that was developed from the ground up. Navigation has changed considerably and so has the Home page.
Main reason for doing so is that I got bored with the theme I chose seven years ago.
Main goal is to provide a better user experience on mobile devices and tablets. Printing support has also improved.
In the first half of this year a LOT of new information has been added to this site from newspaper archives. Until now Dutch, Italian, Irish and Australian vaults have been raided. More to follow, of course.

This Is Going To Cost You..

Happy John Martyn day first of all. John would have turned 65 today.
There are plenty of presents available this year. The sampler Sweet Little Mystery; serving as a warming up for the massive Island Years box set. And as a byproduct the vinyl edition of the 1972 concert Live At The Hanging Lamp.
I have lots of thoughts about these releases but I the main thing is that John's legacy remains available.
The box set contains a lot of interesting material but also quite a bit more of albums we already own in several versions.
We will give it a spin when the ship comes running up the harbour.
