Great review of John Martyn's recent concert in the Barbican, where he played all of 1973's "Solid Air" album, in this morning's Guardian newspaper.

Damn, I wish I'd been there. The recently repeated documentary on him contained an interesting take on things from Danny Thompson when he said

"Most people think he has two identities, but he really has three; John Martyn, Ian McGeechie - and Weapon of Mass Destruction."

Careful now Albie.  Our Jim is very capable of handing out an Ian McGeechie on the unsuspecting when the mood's on him.
