BBC Radio 1 Live In Concert (1992)

An excellent release on 1st March 1992 from the BBC archives (on the Windsong Label) featuring 9 tracks recorded at Glastonbury in 1986. John turns in a great performance full of passion and power. John’s guitar playing is a feature of the album and Alan Thomson’s bass rhythms are superb.

The album is well worth buying and in particular features an incredible extended version of Outside In, a real classic echoplex extravaganza that I never tire of listening to. A tremendous performance, an excellent recording and a live album that rivals if not betters Philentropy.

“Martyn is a fine guitarist, but his most flexible instrument is his voice – one minute achingly pure, the next slurring and teasing…” Review

“These archive recordings find him at his most mesmerising…” Q Review 1992

“The Glastonbury gig is a monster. Martyn’s fusion band lays down a big noise….passionate, compassionate, as vicious and as loving, as sweet and as bitter as you need, a mapper of intimate tragedy and cosmic celebration? Damn right!” Vox
