Solid Air is an album that had me hooked from the opening few seconds on first listen. For me, John Martyn is (was) one of the finest songwriters out there. The way he captures raw emotion is staggering and songs like May You Never, Over The Hill and the title track are some of his best.
John Martyn’s ability to captivate a listener with honesty and emotion is something that always aspire to when writing songs.
