Lucky enough to see John Martyn in concert a few times. He was so laid back that Guzzisue fell asleep!
Solid Air was the first cd Ian bought and he didn't have anything to play it on.
Another great singer song writer has gone Over The Hill.

Written about Nick Drake wasn't it? A truly great album.

You are correct TWI. Just confirmed it from two different sources.

Yes, I saw him in concert a couple of times and despite being off his face, he was great. Funny that he and Drake were such close friends despite being polar opposites. I guess the music was the bridge.
