This song has been my earworm for this week, which is no bad thing at all. I’m not sure what brought it into my head but nothing else has shook it out for very long so far. That fine gentleman Danny Thompson makes jolly nice noises here too.
Yes we all know John Martyn was a belligerent drunk and a wife-beater, but he didn’t half write (and sing and play) some lovely stuff. Personally, I can recognize and condemn the appallingness of his behaviour and still appreciate the beauty of the music he made in his prime. Some cannot separate the flaws of the man from the music he made and thus feel his music is tainted. That’s fair enough.
