One World (Deluxe Edition)

One World Deluxe EditionOne World Live

What could be better than spending a warm summers evening in the company of friends in Regents Park, London being intoxicated by the music of John Martyn? With the waft of a certain well known herbal remedy on the gentle summers breeze John is clearly enjoying the occasion.

John performs the beautifully simple love songs Couldn’t Love You More and Certain Surprise (“Sweet Day” as it was originally titled in John’s November 1976 demo), the electric Dealer, One World and the timeless echoplex extravaganza Small Hours. It was the summer of 1978 and although we can’t be totally sure of this, what we can tell you is that this is a stunning performance. Enjoy!
