John Martyn The Island Years UK CD Album Box Set
Tracklisting / Additional Info: Tracklisting available at request.

The Island Years is the most exhaustive career retrospective from one of Britainís most original and enduring singer/songwriters. Housed in an LP size hard-back slip case, this lavish box set contains 18 Discs including:

ē 17 CDs featuring 12 key studio albums, recorded for Island between 1967 and 1987, now with previously unreleased mixes, Out-Takes, unheard songs and 2 complete, previously unreleased live solo concerts from 1972 and 1977 and the complete demos for The Apprentice, the last album Martyn delivered to Island.

ē 1 DVD containing rare television performances from the Old Grey Whistle Test, Sight and Sound Ė In Concert, A Little Night Music and first time on DVD for the VHS release, Foundations.

ē A hard-back book featuring a new essay by The Island Years compiler and researcher John Hillarby plus rare and previously unseen photographs and extensive memorabilia.

There is a strong selection of previously unreleased alternative takes from Martynís career defining 70s albums Stormbringer, The Road To Ruin, Bless The Weather, Solid Air, Inside Out, Sundayís Child and One World; plus there are extensive outtakes and a number of unreleased songs from Martynís 80s Island releases: Grace And Danger, Sapphire and Piece By Piece.

In total, the box set includes five complete discs of previously unreleased or first time on CD recordings and the equivalent of a further three discs of rare, live and unreleased studio material spread across the 17 discs. Previously released outtakes and recordings have been excluded in favour of never heard before material. There are also two complete, superbly recorded, previously unavailable solo acoustic concerts. The first of these was recorded at The Hanging Lamp, Richmond, in May 1972; the second was recorded at The Town Hall, Sydney, Australia in August 1977 where John shared the bill with Bert Jansch. Among the other live recordings, the box set will include the original Live at Leeds from 1975, Martynís Rock Goes To College performance at Stirling University in March 1981 and his Glastonbury performance from June 1986, both recorded for the BBC.

Among the BBC studio sessions, two previously unreleased tracks from John and Beverley Martyn from 1970 have been found, "Traffic Light Lady" and "The Road to Ruin". The final disc includes over three hours of live footage. This includes Johnís appearances on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1973, 1978 and 1981, Sight And Sound In Concert, 1977 and a particularly stunning performance for BBC Bristolís A Little Night Music in 1981. Plus, an expanded version of the Foundations VHS was recorded at Londonís Town & Country Club in 1986.
