Solid Air - Island SW 9325

By John Martyn

John Martyn is a mumbler and if you're a lyrics freak, stay away from this one (SW 9325). He sings the words, and sometimes a listener can make them out, but not often.

In spite of that, the Scot folksinger had produced a fine album. His slurring style, which is almost a hum, blends in with the musical instruments, and his guitar alone is worth listening.


Sometimes an album is easily earned. This 'review' was published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of Tuesday 13 February 1973.
