Saw John Martyn in Manchester when this album came out. "Don't clap yet" he said as he came on "you might not like it". Well - he was right - I didn't much. he deserved much greater fame (and fortune) than he had achieved by that point. The support was Durutti Column so the evening wasn't a total waste of time).

Returning to his form of several releases ago, John Martyn found good things to convey to the listener here. The classic love song "Never Let Me Go" is worth the price of admission here alone, but the rest of the cuts have something to recommend them also. Too bad Well Kept Secret turned out to be only a lost, rough-cut gem. Track Listing.

John Martyn; Well Kept Secret ‘ELLO JOHN, GOT A NEW ALBUM? I live with the constant nagging worry that my house will soon burn down. Everytime I shut the front door I’m convinced that I shall return to find nothing but a smoking charcoal frame between numbers 88 and 90 with the front door standing free and theatrical. First off and without doubt there’s Earth Wind & Fire’s I Am – then again I always keep around 60 copies of this in the house so the law of averages says one of them must’ve survived. Then I think, there’s A Wizard A True Star by Todd Rundgren. Solid Air or Inside Out. John Martyn records are the type that get thrown on just before you take your shoes off immediately after the statement I’ve had a poxy day. For anyone that’s bought them over the years they become warm and familiar.
