Whilst putting together a collection for my Missy Hong Kong (no mp3 police please) I was transported back twenty seven years to University in Norwich by John Martyn’s “Hurt in your heart” which is such a great recording (on ‘Grace And Danger’). When he played at UEA the roadies had to lift him onto the stage. He was sublime.
I met him by accident at a rehearsal when I was at Keele University a couple of years later. He bought me a pint as well 🙂
Smells and sounds (music) can transport us back to specific moments with such instant clarity. That continues to fascinate me.
