Was introduced to JM by a good mate who thought my musical parameters needed expanding some more. 'This guy plays a fusion of jazz, folk and blues' he said. I listened and I was hooked. First album he played me was Grace and Danger, some of the most heartfelt and beautiful choons I had ever heard (eg Sweet Little Mystery).

However, for some reason it wasn't until 1990 in London when he was touring/promoting the Apprentice album (another goodie) that I finally got to see the man in concert.

Amazing voice, amazing presence, felt I was taken on a spiritual voyage. 'tastic

I may well have seen him on the same tour..I don't remember exactly when it was. Certainly around that time. Saw him at a converted old theatre (seats ripped out) close to Clapham Junction (again memory fails for the name of the place or where exactly it was) . Absolutely excellent.
Youtube is an brilliant source for loads of JM live.

I've not been on this thread. Amongst the many and varied genres of music that I love, folk is certainly one of them.

I used to go to Oxford Street HMV to buy Folk Roots magazine every month and was a regular at The Bracknell Folk Festival in Southill Park Arts Centre. I've been to Fairport Convention at Cropredy a few times and other fantastic festivals and gigs over the years

I'll have a read back through and catch up

My recollection is the Shaw Theatre, off the Euston Rd.

Have had to play that Apprentice album this morning to remind me of what great music is

Saw John Martyn playing support for Sandy Denny (and band) at the Festival Hall in 1971. I think it was Sandy's first performance after Fotheringay split up. John Martyn was brilliant. I also saw him at the final Rainbow Theatre concert along with Procul Harum and other acts. Favourite songs were Spencer the Rover and Bless the Weather and of course May You Never.

Someone once said 'lost love and deep regret will bring any man to his knees'

This song epitomises that sentiment. Beautiful, one of his best....
