John Martyn / Deluxe reissues

jm_comp

Next month Universal Music will reissue expanded versions of two mid-eighties John Martyn albums under their ‘RePresents’ banner.

Sapphire (1984) and Piece By Piece (1986) have been remastered and both of the deluxe releases come with a bonus CD. Amongst the extras across both titles are alternate mixes and previously unreleased live tracks. Enhanced packaging includes lyrics, new essays and rare and unseen photographs.

The reissues are also available as two-LP vinyl remasters with some of the bonus tracks (but not all) from the deluxe CDs on the second vinyl record. Single CD editions are also being made available.

Sapphire and Piece By Piece are reissued on 26 January 2015.

    These look really promising! The reissuing of John Martyn’s catalogue stopped a few years back, with the last of the WEA albums (Glorious Fool and Well Kept Secret..albeit cheap 1-disc affairs), so it’s great that the first of the next batch are coming out.

  2. Runicen says:

    Is there any further information on those “disc 2″ tracks for each release? I’m trying to gauge how much (if anything) on here is “new” to anyone who picked up the “Complete Island Years” set.

    • Dave says:

      Hi Runicen, look on the official John Martyn website for more info from the Universal press release.
      I have the complete box but looks like I will need these as well!

    On another note, Well Kept Secret was remastered and expanded (single disc) by Esoteric this year. It sounds great as do all Esoteric recordings I have heard so far.
