Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: John Martyn (vocals, guitar, guitars, harmonica, keyboards); Phil Collins (vocals, drums, background vocals); Tommy Eyre (keyboards, synthesizer); Dave Lawson (synthesizer).
  • Photographer: Sandy Porter.
  • Martyn shared the break-up of his marriage to Beverly by tearing open his heart and exposing all his emotions on record. Those listeners who were experiencing similar problems found it torturously compelling. The three emotional killers run consecutively--"Sweet Little Mystery," "Hurt In Your Heart" and "Baby Please Come Home." Each one pleads, begs and reasons and inevitably you ask, how on earth could she leave him? The answer is in the penultimate track where our John announces, "I saved some for me" and "I didn't give it all." If you survived this album you can survive anything in later life, as our John has.
Professional Reviews
Q (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]is last truly great album....There's plenty of bitterness and regret, but unusually for a break-up album by a man, little self-pity and, on 'Hurt In Your Heart', a touching plea for friendship."

Uncut (p.78) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The songs] capture Martyn at his aching, bittersweet best, enhanced by John Gribbin's elliptical, jazzy basslines."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.119) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n album of fathomless depth and nuance..."

Mojo (Publisher) (4/04, p.142) - "[A] richly textured record on which woozy fretless bass and melting Fender Rhodes act like a salve....[A] classy - and refreshingly magnanimous - break-up record."
