Stormbringer! by John Martyn
Released: Feb 1970
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
For 1970's Stormbringer!, John and Beverley Martyn made the requisite hippie pilgrimage to Woodstock to record with the Big Pink scene: Levon Helm, Paul Harris, John Simon, et al. Because the Martyns as musicians possessed such powerful personalities, the record doesn't sound like your typical back-to-country effort from the early '70s. The bulk of it -- including the title track and "The Ocean," both of which are gorgeous -- floats through time cloaked in soft strings and phantom textures. Another keeper is "Traffic-Light Lady," one of the more touching tunes the duo ever committed to tape.
