Stormbringer by John & Beverley Martyn

JohnbevWhen it comes to John Martyn, ever two bit muso tells you that Solid Air is his zenith, and that’s the place to start your collection. Rot. When John gatecrashed his wife’s record deal, together they made one of the great lost LPs of the acid folk genre. Stormbringer is full to bursting with brilliant hooks and ideas.

Stormbringer is looser, catchier and has more depth than Solid Air, and tracks like ‘Sweet Honesty’ have a funk that doesn’t normally belong in a folk LP. The title track is one of the greatest songs ever released on the Island imprint. If you don’t own this LP, your summer will surely suffer. Buy it before the sun disappears. [Mof Gimmers]
