tunes of the day

Couple of John Martyn clips for you:
  • An astonishingly youthful Martyn performing May You Never on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1973.
  • I'd Rather Be The Devil from the same show. One man, an acoustic guitar and an electronic box of tricks (actually it's an Echoplex) - nice swooshy 1970s visual effects too.
  • Certain Surprise from German TV in 1978.
  • Small Hours at Reading University, also in 1978.
  • Solid Air from Dublin in 1987; Martyn looking considerably sweatier and more jowly by this time as the relentless drink intake took its toll.
  • Sweet Little Mystery from the same gig. Note that this is not the Wet Wet Wet song of the same name.
