JOHN MARTYN: 'Please Fall In Love With Me' (WEA). Slow, unexciting exercise, rendered even less successful by a Phil Collins production that shoves Martyn's remarkable voice to the back and has a bleeding great drum thumping away in the thick of it and drowning all else out. Sounds suspiciously like Collins' horrible gurgley voice on backing vocals, too; why can't he be content with boring half the world to death with his own wretched records?

sitenotes:
Phil will be pleased… This verdict was published in Record Mirror of 19th September 1981 and credited 'Sunie'.
