Arranger: John Martyn.
John Martyn was on a hot streak in the early 1970s. SOLID AIR and INSIDE OUT, both from 1973, are among Martyn's strongest efforts, and '74's Sunday'S CHILD is as good as its predecessors. By '74, Martyn was learning to synthesize his early Britfolk roots with his more experimental tendencies, resulting in a combination of introspective singer-songwriter fare and sonic adventurousness.
Sunday'S CHILD bounces around between jazzy ditties ("My Baby Girl"), funky workouts ("Root Love"), gentle folk ("Lay It All Down"), and the artist's trademark ethereal blues (the title track). Martyn's songs are invariably emotion-charged, and while his style-hopping and use of effects keeps things varied, it never disperses the focus of the album. The remastered version, with its seven previously unreleased bonus tracks, makes an already strong album even stronger.
