John Martyn – Solid Air – now on iTunes


Solid Air is on iTunes right now for £4.99. A seminal album at a incredible price!

Peter Fairless… Or, can we buy it from a real record shop?

Andy Qunta… Great album! I think John Wilde did artwork on the next album, Inside Out.

Alan Esdaile… Agree.

Will Cornell… Drink destroyed this guy….he could’ve been so great. He performed at my college in the 70s and it did not go well at all. Very sad.

Jim Breeds… I might be a bit of a fan … 🙂

Mike Curtis… I remember a gig he did at The Carlisle in 74 or 75, using Stallion’s PA system. With Danny Thompson. John was pretty wasted but wonderful all the same. Miss him.

John Wilde… I did the artwork on the Inside Out album which I completed in the recording studio over four days. In the company of John, Stevie Winwood, Chris Wood from Traffic, Remi Kebaka Traffics percussionist and Danny Thompson. It was quite the experience. The ink work I did aptly reflects my state of mind. Thank you John.

Andy Qunta… And thank you, John W! Brilliant artwork you did, btw! Love that cover!

Jim Breeds… Yes, Inside Out artwork is excellent. Have always liked that John. Congratulations 🙂 Although Our Price did their best to distract from your efforts on my copy! 🙂

Alan Esdaile… I was at the Carlisle gig Mike and I thought he was great. Got an idea this was a charity gig and promoted by Alan Jensen?
