A Nod to John Martyn with Alan Murphy

‘I remember where I was when I heard my first John Martyn album “So Far So Good” in 1977 and it gave me a direction in music which lasts to this day.

I’ve watched John live in Glasgow Students Union – Met him after the gig at Edinburgh Odeon 1978 – Glasgow Sub Club – Glasgow Pavilion Theatre – Glasgow Concert hall – & Dublin Vicar Street.

I am very grateful to have played Solid Air and You Can Discover with Danny Thompson at a John Martyn music gathering, watched him playing Good By Pork Pie Hat, and listened to some of his stories over breakfast.

I’ve bought his “Wotcher” T shirt with his own sketch of his lifelong bass…Victoria.

John died on the 29th of January 2009. On this tenth anniversary year I played a remembrance gig and it was a pleasure to revisit John’s songs. I would like to again share some of his music along with my own compositions as a “Nod to JM” in the fabulous Ferry.’
