John Martyn – The Island Years

No Temptation Required

There’s a good opening article in the current edition of Uncut describing this box set to be released in September. The real excitement about this collection is clearly the addition of previously unheard/unreleased tracks as well as a DVD of rare television performances. As advertised, the box set includes five complete discs of previously unreleased or first time on CD recordings and the equivalent of a further three discs of rare, live and unreleased studio material spread across the 17 discs. Well, that’s enough for me and I have pre-ordered, not that I required tempting. John Martyn always has and always will be the greatest artist in my aural hall of fame.

If you are tempted to pre-order, here is the link.
