JOHN MARTYN - Island ILPS 9296 (6.98)
Folk-oriented British singer/ songwriter/ producer (and exceptional guitarist) demonstrates his adept ability to convey a variety of moods, ranging from gently jazzy as on My Baby Girl, to lightly rocking as exemplified on Clutches, right on to a blues flavor on Satisfied Mind.1 His style is unique and refreshing.
1 Satisfied Mind must be the most country track John ever produced. But that is just my opinion.
This two sentence review appeared in Record World of 9 November 1974. Record World (1946-1982) was one of the three main music industry trade publications in the United States, along with Billboard and Cash Box.
