John Martyn At The BBC

John Martyn has been a favourite musician of mine ever since I heard his album Stormbringer in the early 1970s, which he recorded with his then wife Beverley.

John started out as a folk singer but quickly started exploring the use of loops and electronic music, and it was here that he had most of his success with albums such as "Solid Air", "Inside Out" and "One World".

Never a commercial success, John never the less had a dedicated audience. Later in his career John explored jazz and rock with his band.

This DVD covers John's performances for the BBC from 1973 until 1982 and features some classic performances of songs such as "Big Muff", "May You Never", "Johnny Too Bad" and "Couldn't Love You More". John battled substance abuse problems most of his career and died in 2009.
