This John Martyn Island Years box set contains 17 CDs featuring the 12 key studio albums (recorded for Island between 1967 and 1987) with previously unreleased mixes, outtakes, unheard songs and two complete, previously unreleased live solo concerts from 1972 and 1977 and the complete demos for The Apprentice, the last album Martyn delivered to Island. Add to that a DVD with loads of TV performances, a large hardback book and you have an amazing set.
You can pick this up now from Amazon UK for virtually half price at the time of writing, not quite as good as last year’s ‘accidental’ deal on Amazon Germany, but at least this should be honoured! US fans should note that with tax deducted this works out at about $122 plus shipping.
