The album starts off with a bang with "Heel Of The Hunt" which is a wild oddity of a track, in some ways seeming to encapsulate JM's whole career in a few minutes. The backing vocals on "Stand Amazed" sounded a little out of place to me, maybe too high on the mix, but that is a very minor quibble. "Heaven And Earth" is the first true standout track for me, with beautiful sax and reassuring vocals from JM that brought the first of many tears. I began to feel that JM was using this album to say goodbye. "Bad Company" is a real stonker of a track, such a tragedy we will never see that one live. "Could Have Told You Before I Met You" has a vibe almost redolent of the "Well Kept Secret" era. A reminder that on top of everything else, John Martyn wrote GREAT pop songs. This is a favorite, with a lovely laid back guitar break. "Gambler" features the trademark growl and is positively FUNKY. Then it happened. That John Martyn moment where you hear a song of his for the first time and it immediately steals ylour heart. It first happened for me almost forty years ago when my school friend Chris Collings first played me "Head And Heart." John tells us that he can ..."Turn back the covers, turn on the light, but I can't turn back the years." "Can't Turn Back The Years" is a beautiful song that ranks among his best, both in theme and content. I have not read anything to confirm this, but it sounds like Phil Collins on the backing vocals. "Colours" is another strong one, as is closer "Willing To Work", a sprawling workout which has a similar feel to opener "Heel Of The Hunt".

As the tracks continued, I began to get really drawn in. It began to feel like a mellower, slightly looser follow up to "And..." in many ways.

A beautiful final legacy from the master! The track 'Heaven and Earth' will move you in ways that only John Martyn ever could. 'Can't Turn Back the Years' will also grab the heartstrings. 'Could've Told You Before I Met You' is funky and fantastic. Worth the wait for these tracks alone. The man's a genius and so sorely missed.

I will be brief. This is better than "On the Cobbles", and if you know the great moments on "Glasgow Walker" and "And", then it easily matches those. This is certainly later John Martyn. This is not the acoustic days of the early 70's, nor the echoplex days of the mid to late 70's.

However, it is still really good. "Could Have Told You Before I Met You" is a hit song.... just give it to some young, popular group to record, and it would be huge.

"Heaven And Earth" is also wonderful, classic Martyn.

Those two gems would make it all worth while, but there is more for your to discover.

If you have doubts, don't.

Just buy it, and listen to John's last work.
