Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: John Martyn (guitar, vocals).
  • Along with Nick Drake, John Martyn was one of the most compelling British singer-songwriters to emerge during the 1970s. Martyn specialized in an acoustic, bluesy folk sound, but he was also a restless experimentalist, running his guitar through all manner of effects processors and incorporating elements of jazz, pop, and ambient music.
  • SWEET LITTLE MYSTERIES is a survey of Martyn's work for Island Records, ranging from 1971's folky BLESS THE WEATHER through 1980's pop-oriented GRACE AND DANGER. In between, listeners are treated to a comprehensive sampling of the artist's talents, from his sonically expansive guitar-scapes to his poetic, meticulous sense of songcraft. The music from Martyn's early-to-mid '70s period stands up the best, but the later work selected here is strong too. This is an excellent introduction back to front.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (6/30/94, p.77) - "...John Martyn is a cult artist's cult artist. Between his evocative songs and soulful singing, Martyn has won over the likes of Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood and Phil Collins..." Q Magazine (8/94, p.127) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...As an experimental guitarist, Martyn unearthed all manner of hitherto unheard noises, but none was as remarkable as that sweet, shy, mumbly buzz of a voice..."

Jazziz (9/95, p.101) - "...a generous overview of a musical career rich in stylistic changes....music with honest emotions and an acoustic bass....an artist with so many elements to his style and so much talent that perhaps he will finally receive the commercial recognition he deserves."
