Piece By Piece


Martyn’s last Island album, and the last full album with Alan Thomson’s fretless bass. (Martyn really lived and died on the bassists he played with.) At this point, you’re just getting a by-the-numbers Eighties album with weirder singing and some really ace playing. After this, you’re on your own, as is Martyn.
