Over the years, John Martyn has offered us an eclectic range of sounds and styles.
Elements of jazz, blues, and rock are all in evidence, but folk is at the core of his sound. It is hard to pick a particular highlight on Solid Air as the whole album is a masterpiece. However, if only for sentimental reasons, Solid Air is a favourite of many, a beautiful tribute to his depressed friend, Nick Drake.
Another number, May You Never was a favourite of Eric Clapton, who later covered it on his Slowhand album in 1977. Overall, Solid Air is one of the most original and satisfying folk albums ever made.
