Solid Air by John Martyn
Released: Feb 1973
Label: Island Records
John Martyn's brilliance as a songwriter came into full bloom on this 1973 LP. Balancing his British folk beginnings with a more mellifluous, jazz-inflected warmth, this ranks with the best efforts of Van Morrison or Tim Buckley. The title track was written for Martyn's friend, Nick Drake, who would die the following year.
