John Martyn - The Tumbler (2005) Retail CD
This is John Martyn's second album, recorded in 1968 when the folk/rock boom was nearing its height. Immediately the album kicks off with 'Sing A Song Of Summer' and John displays his lightening fast guitar picking skills learnt from Davy Graham. Other highlights include 'Goin Down To Memphis' with its wonderful slide guitar sections. 'Dusty' and 'Fishin Blues' also impress, anyone used to Martyn's more gruff sounding jazzy voice from 'Solid Air' onwards as I was will get a bit of a shock here. No slurred or moaned vocals, but a crisp clear young folk voice. At around 30 mins in length, this ismore… a brief experience but it should please both fans of the current crop of acoustic guitar singing wannabees and guitar nuts who can try and work out the dizzying finger picking/slide and strum style of Martyn. The best from his early period, but there was even better to come.
