Ain't No Saint: 40 Years Of John Martyn

Daryl Easlea, Island Records, September 2008

"Love finds a way, just let it stay
From day to day, just let it flow, just let it grow
It will get you together
Let's get it straight: it's love not hate
Don't fuss and fight, let's get it right, let's get it together."

(John Martyn, 1973)

"I often thought of faking my own death and watching the record companies fucking drum up all the shit they can..."

(John Martyn, 2000)

"The whole affair has really been about fun and will continue to be."

(John Martyn, 2008)
