    He has the loveliest voice. Incredible. Doesn't get enough credit by far.

    V OH! That's why this sounds so familiar. No wonder Clapton covered it.

    didn't recognise the substandard song because it wasn't John Martyn! Please ignore first toruscell comment Sorry... I first heard May you Never by Eric Clapton which introduced me to John's work, I will always lovethis which ever way john sings and plays.

    Yes this is pretty dreadful and probably why I missed his genius over the last 40 years. He seems to have been such a perfectionist that he re recorded many types of versions of his own songs.....several years and much living have produced heartfelt masterpieces.

    John Martyn had a habit of allowing substandard alternative versions of tracks to get out of the studio. This is one of them. Not a patch on the Solid Air version. But man could he play. And sing. RIP

    A bit lightweight compared to the 'Solid Air' version (which this isn't) but still a great song by a great artist.
