Music today has been exclusively John Martyn. Bless The Weather from 1971, Solid Air from 1973, Inside Out from 1973 and Sunday’s Child from 1975. Little known facts about John Martyn: His real name was Iain McGeachy and both of his parents were opera singers, it explains a lot. A terrible drunk and an amazing singer-songwriter and innovator, who straddled Folk, Blues Rock and Jazz, he died at the age of 60 in 2009.
Last thought – the first track on Bless The Weather, Go Easy, has the lyric “Life, go easy on me”.
