John Martyn – ‘Big Muff’ Hastings Beach 1991

With the Hastings Beach Festival approaching this weekend, good time to post this video by Glenn Veness, of the great John Martyn singing ‘Big Muff’

I have fond memories of John when I worked in Stylus Record Shop. He used to pop  and chat about music and records. One day we had a surprise visitor in the shop ‘Art Garfunkel’ . He was in town to record with John. Also remember a great gig by John at The Carlisle. I think Alan Jensen from the Disc Jockey promoted it and was a warm up to his tour.  Brilliant night.                                                          Johnny Mason

Martyn Baker comments…. The film also features cameos from Minn, Liam Genockey and Roger Hubbard.
