Chris Sambrook… John Martyn didn’t make it in time but played on the beach the next day.

Alan Esdaile… According to John Martyn’s website, he was in America and missed the plane home.

Chris Sambrook… there is footage on You Tube JM playing between the Fishermen’s
huts which might have been the Monday after the Beach Concert weekend,  using a make shift stage and borrowed equipment. The other footage with John Martyn playing on the main stage at the Beach Concert, not sure which year but he had his band then. Through the mists of time and
many Pints later i’m confused.

Hans van den Berk… This is clearly 1992. https://www.johnmartyn.info/node/1241

Eric Harmer… Would love one of the posters Alan ? Where you there Bob it was amazing. The first time I met John ?

Alan Esdaile… Posters not one of mine unfortunately Eric. It came from Chris Sambrook. Unless anyone has got one best you can do is make a copy from this. John didn’t play this gig as was still out of the country and I think played next day on the beach. However the video clips from the beach are listed as 1991.
