Editors’ Notes

1980’s Grace and Danger is where guitarist John Martyn chronicles the dissolution of his marriage to wife Beverley, with whom he’d recorded several albums. The album so disturbed the label president that its release was delayed a year. Always a great technical player, Martyn infused tough, often uncomfortable emotion into these songs of obvious pain and frustration. “Some People Are Crazy” opens with tight accompaniment that underscores the somber events. (The quartet features Genesis drummer Phil Collins, bassist John Giblin and keyboardist Tommy Eyre).
