    Bless The Weather

    Bless the Weather is a 1971 album by John Martyn and marks his return as a solo artist having released two albums with his wife Beverley Martyn.

    One World

    One World is a 1977 album by John Martyn. One of his more experimental works, it features atmospheric, reggae influenced rhythms and free-flowing, jazzy arrangements. Acclaimed for its collaborative spirit, the album includes contributions from Lee Perry on Big Muff, and Steve Winwood (keyboards). Contemporary reviews were positive, with the NME declaring the album mean, moody and magnificent.

    Grace And Danger

    Grace and Danger was originally released by John Martyn in October of 1980.


    The album was written and recorded while Martyn was in the process of divorcing his wife Beverley, and the songs strongly reflect the emotional upheaval that he was experiencing at the time. Martyn and Phil Collins forged a close friendship during the writing and recording of the album with both musicians going through painful divorces at the time - Collins played drums and provided backing vocals. In fact, a strong kinship exists between Grace And Danger and Collins' contemporaneous album Face Value, which also contained a strong narrative relating to relationship breakdown.

    19 Rupert Street (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    19 Rupert Street was the house in Glasgow where Scottish folk singer Alex Campbell lived and this is where Sandy Denny recorded these songs. Recorded on a home tape machine they showcase Denny in a relaxed atmosphere singing with acoustic guitar, and occasionally joined by Campbell.


    The songs are mostly folk standards. The session is unique as it includes performances of a number of songs that Sandy never recorded in a studio (including John Martyn's Fairytale Lullaby and the traditional The Leaves of Life) making this an essential release for fans.


    It's a set that will fascinate Sandy devotees True, as home recordings, they are limited in audio quality. But the intimacy of these basic recordings shines through along with the sheer enjoyment she is having and, of course, that wonderful voice.

    The Phoenix And The Turtle

    April 2014 will see the release of her new album entitled The Phoenix and the Turtle. Described by Beverley as a very personal album, it features songs written throughout her entire career, from her very first song, ''Sweet Joy'', to the previously unrecorded Nick Drake & Beverley Martyn song ''Reckless Jane'' which was started in 1974 when Drake lived nearby Beverley in Hampstead. ''We started writing the song as a bit of a joke,'' she says, ''When John and I lived in Hampstead Nick lived one stop down the tube line, and he would come around and babysit sometimes. I couldn't look at it for a long time after he died, but then finally I decided to finish it.''


    ''When The Levee Breaks' and 'Going To Germany' are songs Beverley used to sing with The Levee Breakers. Another song, 'Women And Malt Whiskey' is, in part, about John Martyn and other friends from the scene back then.


    The Phoenix and the Turtle is Beverley's first album in fourteen years and was recorded in Wales with guitarist and producer Mark Pavey; it also features contributions from bass player Matt Malley, ex-Counting Crows and drummer Victor Bisetti, ex-Los Lobos which were recorded ''by the magic of computer'' in California. The album ''still has that in-a-room feel,'' said Beverley recently, ''it sounds like an old style analogue record. It's very me, very transatlantic.''

    Sunday's Child (Pre-Order)

    Sunday's Child is a John Martyn album originally released in 1975. John Martyn's follow-up to 1973's Inside Out is a more song-oriented, less experimental album. His eighth record, including two with his wife Beverley Martyn, shows the many facets of Martyn's playing, from his effects-driven electric guitar to his acoustic work. This album contains a collection of original songs along with a pair of covers: the traditional British ballad Spencer the Rover, and the country standard Satisfied Mind. The song The Message features a pair of verses written by Martyn sung in his typical style, alternating with a pair of verses from the Scottish folk ballad Mairi's Wedding sung with a Scottish lilt.

    Slowhand: 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

    Ranked 325/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Eric Clapton has fashioned albums in many different styles and with many different themes, yet few have the sense of oneness that pervades Slowhand. Slowhand was recorded at Olympic Studios in South West London in May 1977 and was produced by Glyn Johns. Released in November 1977, Slowhand was the most successful album of Clapton's '70s studio recordings. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard chart where it stayed for five weeks, spending a total of 74 weeks on the American album chart.


    Slowhand features Wonderful Tonight', Lay Down Sally, and Cocaine - songs that are still heard regularly on radio and at Eric Clapton's live shows. So long after its release is a great recommendation and testimony to its place in Clapton's canon. The album includes cover versions of songs written by some of his favorite songwriters (JJ Cale, John Martyn, Don Williams, Arthur Crudup) along with original compositions by Eric Clapton.

    Sugaring Season

    Beth Orton's Anti debut captures the classic hypnotic sound that won her prominence, at the same time as it shows a singer at the full maturity of her instrument, with a new soulfulness that can recall Roberta Flack or Nina Simone one moment, June Christy at the next. Sugaring Season is in many ways a culmination of Orton's art of contradictions, a full circle from that first John Martyn cover she recorded with William Orbit back in the day ? soulful and ambient, lush and bittersweet, starkly still and fiercely rhythmic.

    Bare Wires

    John Mayall's Bluesbreakers were the undisputed flag-bearers of the British Blues movement during the mid sixties. The band saw many configurations, spawning talents like Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood. Bare Wires is their fifth album, recorded in 1968 with (a.o.) Mick Taylor on guitar, Jon Hiseman on drums, Dick Heckstall-Smith on sax and Tony Reeves on bass. The latter three started Prog Rock band Colloseum a little later - Reeves went on to work with Sandy Denny and John Martyn. Bare Wires is a truly iconic album, as it went down as the album where Mayall treaded Jazz territory, making it a record with historical importance.

    I Forget Where We Were

    Although Ben Howard often gets compared to Nick Drake or John Martyn, the English singer/songwriter was raised on his parents' Bob Dylan and Joni
    Mitchell records. Howard's debut album, Every Kingdom (2011), received much critical acclaim. Over pedaling rhythms and subtly catchy melodies,
    Howard unleashes his scratchy voice, which segues into subtly layered gang vocals during the chorus.

    Blue Rider (Awaiting Repress)

    Often cited by critics and peers alike as a songwriter's songwriter, Zachary Cale has been quietly constructing a catalog for nearly a decade, one which showcases mastery and a unique voice across folk ballads, guitar instrumentals, and country-tinged rock. His songs are marked with his signature finger-style guitar playing and lyrical command as he blends the echoed open-tuned guitar patterns of artists like John Martyn and Bert Jansch with the desolate American lyricism of lone riders like Simon Joyner and Elliott Smith, standing out as a songwriter of uncommon power.


    "Zachary Cale is the best singer-songwriter working
    right now. Period."

    - POP MATTERS


    (a) reedy, hangdog style supported by songs that are
    pure class...this music will wait for you all to catch up."

    In The Club

    Dave Swarbrick and Simon Nicol are hugely important figures in the history of British Folk Rock and Folk music since the 1960's. They were both key figures in British Folk Rock super group Fairport Convention and appeared on their seminal album Liege and Lief (1969) which initiated the electric folk movement. In fact BBC radio 2 listeners have voted Liege and Leaf the 'Most influential folk album of all time'.

    Dave Swarbrick has been described the most influential British fiddle player bar none. After 1970 he emerged as Fairport Convention's leading figure and guided the band through a series of important albums until its disbandment in 1979. Simon Nicol was a founder member of Fairport Convention and is the only founding member still in the band... In 1973 he played on what is often considered one of the important folk/jazz albums of all time, John Martyn's Solid Air.

    After Fairport Convention called it a day in 1979, Dave Swarbrick and Simon Nicol joined forces and spent the early eighties playing folk clubs throughout the UK as an acoustic duo. Their repertoire was drawn from various sources - including Fairport Convention material, Dave Swarbrick's late seventies/early eighties solo albums and also several tracks that were individual to the duo. The acoustic duo proved popular and recorded three albums. Two of those, the 1981 live album 'Live at the White Bear', and the 1984 studio effort 'Close to the Wind', were re-issued a few years back on Fairport Convention's own Woodworm Records label.

    Late Night Tales: Royksopp (Awaiting Repress)

    Limited Edition 180 Gram Double Vinyl Album Set Unmixed Tracks

    Includes the Mixed CD and Cover Art Print


    The new edition of Late Night Tales journeys to Scandinavia to invite Norwegian duo Röyksopp to delve through their record collection. Their Late Night Tales mix is eclectic, diverse and wonderful. Sliding from light folk to widescreen ambience to experimental rock to prog-pop (seasoned with the occasional guilty pleasure); it's all in the spirit of the night.


    Following the exclusive introduction track 'Daddy's Groove', Rare Bird's beautiful 1975 B-side'Passing Through' then leads into Australian supergroup Little River Band. The first of several delicate folk moments, it's joined by the ever soulful John Martyn. There's a strong representation of alternative European sounds. Röyksopp mine deep and wide to unearth the rare and unusual German psych-pop of Richard Schneider Jnr (featuring none other than Can's Jaki Leibezeit on drums), France's unique F.R. David and the new age melodies of Switzerland's Andreas Vollenweider - it's pop Jim, but not as we know it. There are also the more familiar names of XTCand Thomas Dolby, as well as Röyksopp's exclusive cover of Depeche Mode's 'Ice Machine' and brand new track opening Daddys Groove. The music draws to a close with goth-dream-pop 4ADfounders The Mortal Coil's Emmylou Harris cover 'Till I Can Gain Control Again'; blending into a cinematic moment from German electronic avant-garde band Popol Vuh, contributing to the soundtrack of Werner Herzog's 1972 movie Aguirre, the Wrath of God. The second part of theBenedict Cumberbatch narrated story 'Flat of Angles' closes time on this coolly individual edition ofLate Night Tales.

    This Is PIL

    Public Image Limited's new self-funded 12-track set, their first in 20 years, is entitled This Is PIL, and will be released on the band's own label PIL Official via Cargo UK Distribution. All the new material was recorded in the UK last year at Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds.


    John Lydon talks about This Is PIL: "Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention.'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrousness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' Well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments.


    Following on from their monumental live performance at BBC Radio 6 Birthday Celebrations at Queen Elizabeth Hall on Friday March 16th which saw PIL include and baptize 2 new songs: Deeper Water and One Drop, PIL also played two very special shows at London's Heaven showcasing more tracks from the new album with The Times commenting "This was an evening of uncompromising art music, worthy of the total concentration of the audience."


    The track One Drop has now also received airplay from BBC Radio 6, XFM and Absolute Radio. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time PIL's music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 Singles and 5 UK Top 20 Albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound former Sex Pistol frontman John Lydon formed Public Image Ltd in 1978, guiding the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 through to 1992's That What Is Not, before a 17 year hiatus. John then resurrected PIL in 2009 playing live worldwide. Now after 20 years yet another new and unique chapter is set to unfold in the shape of new PIL material!


    Lu Edmonds, multi-instrumentalist and former guitarist in The Damned joined PIL in 1986 recording and playing on the album Happy? and co-writing the album 9, adding yet another dimension to the PIL sound. Bruce Smith, former drummer in The Pop Group and The Slits became percussionist for PIL, also in 1986, playing and recording on the albums Happy? and 9. Scott Firth, bass player/multi instrumentalist has collaborated and played with a variety of top musicians and bands including Steve Winwood, John Martyn, and Elvis Costello.

    Solid Air (Half-Speed Master) (Out Of Stock)

    HALF-SPEED MASTER : 2016 reissue of 1973 album, mastered at Abbey Road Studios from the original tapes & pressed on 180-gram audiophile quality vinyl!


    Unlike previous re-issues the album has been cut at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios. This technique results in the very highest quality sound reproduction.


    The process involves the original 1/4 inch studio master tape being played back at precisely half its recorded speed while the cutting lathe is similarly turned at half the desired playback speed. This allows the cutting head twice the time to cut the intricate groove, affording considerably more accuracy with important matters such as frequency extremes and micro-dynamic contrasts. The resulting cuts have excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images.


    The superb vinyl is accompanied by a high quality reproduction of the original gatefold album sleeve.


    Recorded at Sound Techniques Studio in Chelsea during 1972, John Martyn's seminal album Solid Air was released in February 1973.


    Emotionally intense and hauntingly beautiful Solid Air encapsulates almost every musical genre with ease and accomplishment. The songs are exquisitely crafted fusions of blues, country, folk, jazz and rock, with dazzling guitar, musicianship and outstanding vocals.

    1. Solid Air
    2. Over the Hill
    3. Don't Want to Know
    4. I'd Rather Be the Devil
    5. Go Down Easy
    6. Dreams by the Sea
    7. May You Never
    8. The Man in the Station
    9. The Easy Blues/Gentle Blues

    Solid Air: Classics Revisited (Out of Stock)

    John Martyn the legendary British singer-songwriter and guitarist, once described by The Times newspaper as "an electrifying guitarist and singer whose music blurred the boundaries between folk, jazz, rock and blues".


    With a career spanning over 40-years, he released 21 studio albums, working with such luminaries as Eric Clapton, David Gilmour and Phil Collins.


    Martyn began his professional musical career when he was 17, playing a blend of blues and folk resulting in a distinctive style which made him a key figure in the British folk scene during the mid-1960s. It was in the 1970's that Martyn found fame as a solo artist and in 1973 he released one of the defining British albums of the decade, "Solid Air" originally released on Island Records, the title song being a tribute to the singer-songwriter Nick Drake, a close friend and label-mate, who sadly died in 1974.


    Madfish Records are releasing this classic album on LP, rerecorded by Martyn in 1993. Among the 10 tracks are iconic songs including 'May You Never', which quickly became a signature song for Martyn and a firm favorite within his live performances, 'Solid Air' and 'Bless The Weather'.
