'[A] beautifully-written, lucid account of the man and the musician - not always, as Nickson reminds us, a comfortable mix. Far from detracting from the music, Nickson's analysis made me revisit the albums with renewed interest and enjoyment. John Martyn was just sixty when he died, but reading this biography made me keenly aware of how very young he was, just seventeen, when his professional career began and how much music he packed into his life.'
