    Masterful. RusselChap pretty much said what I wanted to say: this is the concentric waves which flow from a drop in a pool, in audio format.

    Beautiful liquid folk where John Martyn's echoplex reflects it's self like multiple ripples.

    My favourite John Martyn song, and I have to say IMHO that the live OGWT youtube video above is better than the Sweet Little Mysteries version. It's almost two years now and I still can't believe he's gone. RIP.
