Inside Out (Island ILPS 9253). Difficult to categorise this musician, except to say that he works in touches of blues, of folk, of the olde-worlde traditional sort of material. He is very much a musician's musician, but communicates to the masses, too. Good guitarist, again of varied styles. Stalwarts like Remi Kabaka, Danny Thompson (a diamond, says John), Stevie Winwood, Chris Wood on the backing sounds. Best tracks are Look In and The Glory Of Love, by B. Hill… an oldie, revitalised. Take your time in trying to get the best of Martyn – he's not always easy to understand.
