John Martyn: Glorious Fool (WEA k99178)

Mark Cooper, Record Mirror, 3 October 1981

JOHN MARTYN'S twelfth album, his first with Warners and his first with a band. The glorious fool continues to go his own way with little or no regard to the dictates of fashion, business or anything else besides. Phil Collins produces and plays drums, the latter inventively and with authority, the former with a skill that tends towards 'Couldn't Love You More'.
