desert island discs
A friend recently asked what song I would take on a desert island. I wondered:
a) did i have a choice on the whole marooning?
b) could i swap said song for a dinghy or a even a volleyball – “Wilsonnnnnn”
As neither option was on offer I settled on May You Never from John Martyn’s exceptional Solid Air album from 1973.
It’s a work of joyous well-intentioned folk genius, and I never tire of it.
