(John & Beverley Martyn - 1970 - further evidence music is timeless)

When my friend Mig Schillace mentioned he was working on a John Martyn tribute project, I instantly thought of some of the great albums he had done throughout his all-too-short career. One that came to mind was a collaboration he had done with his then-wife Beverley. Stormbringer was always one of my favorites. To me it was one of those perfect albums that has stood the test of time these, almost forty years.

For some reason, and I can't explain why, time seems to stop when I listen to The Ocean. Somehow seems apropos on a Saturday night.

Can you help us out?
