Some great reviews here on Small Hours: The Long Night of John Martyn. Order here: https://thisdayinmusicbooks.com
“Martyn, the difficult musical visionary, thoroughly deserves this painstaking and eloquent biography [which] balances the fan's assiduousness with a critic's seiving action.” – Observer
"[An] excellent biography." – Independent
“Insightful and beautifully written… unflinchingly critical of Martyn’s failings and his substance-fuelled excesses [yet] equally glowing in its praise of his finest achievements as a genre-blurring performer." – 4/5, Shindig!
“Tethers the sometimes golden music to the often savage man, retaining sympathy for his subject and the casualties he caused.” – 9/10, Classic Rock
"Attention to biographical detail is pleasingly matched by astute critical appraisals [and] forensic flair…. [a] compelling portrait." – 4/5, Record Collector
