Solid Air

Yesterday was Tuesday and I forgot about the music.  So here you go.  "Solid Air" by John Martyn is one of those albums from my youth that never gets old.  It was released in 1973 when I was 13 and I still listen to it with great joy. I saddened by John Martyn's death in 2009, his excellent guitar work was one of the main reasons I spent much of my youth playing till my fingers bled. Selwyn posted a pointer to this clip on YouTube. Filmed in 1978 this excellent live version of Solid Air has 3 minutes of an unscheduled guitar string replacement at the beginning. What a power!
