Monday's Long Song



As the nights draw in and Autumn turns to Winter I always find myself rifling through the M section in the vinyl and cd shelves. I'm not sure what it is about this time of the year that lends itself to the sounds of John Martyn for me but I always find that the songs soundtrack this time of the year beautifully especially the output from 1971 to 1977.  I have posted Small Hours from the classic One World album on a few occasions but never this instrumental version before. To be honest it's not a version I play that often as I like the vocal in the track but now and again it hits the spot and is a pretty good way to ease you into the working week.

John Martyn songs are indeed made for this time of year
Seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness and all that

He lived down the road from me here in the dark heart of South Lanarkshire. Autumn in Upper Clydesdale... especially around Roberton and Biggar... have totally seeped into those JM records. Impossible to hear them without picturing Tinto lurking in the background somewhere...
