The prevailing view is probably that Solid Air, is the classic John Martyn album, and certainly, it is a classic album...

...but this one has been inching it's way into my affections over a long period of time, song by song, and even nudging ahead of Solid Air, in terms of which of his albums gets played the most.

It showcases not only the sublime, and the tender, which John Martyn was more than capable of, but the sense of a dangerous, and experimental edge he had too (Why he reportedly named another album: Grace and Danger- apparently it was said to him: "John... You're all Grace and Danger"

And on this, the grace comes in the shape of Small Hours, and the danger, in the form of tracks like Dealer, and Big Muff (which I just cannot stop listening to! - it's so compulsive), and even, both at the same time: Dancing.

He;s really pushing his guitar to make new sounds, taking little prhases, riffs, scrapes, and bleeps and all sorts and stitching them together in an almost funky way, that really gets under the skin. Finally, his inimitable voice, pushing, and pulling around the music makes a rather magical experience.

A great album :)
