  4. Saw him in concert here in Italy circa 1979 in Bologna, my University town....Really good... He'd play alone on stage with just his guitar and pre-recorded bases This song has a very special atmosphere ( for me at least...) RIP John...Thank you Among other things....He was friends with Nick Drake...... Some youtube posters claim song is a message to friend Nick Drake https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Martyn

  7. Singer / songwriter from Naples...His brother Eugenio is a member of traditional song band " Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare" A week a day or just an hour sometimes is worth a lifetime time flies by and steals what you got I don't know how to talk about Love But I know that whenever you hold my hands tight I'd want Time to just freeze around us I wish that never never never nobody in the world ever could steal you, take you away just like this train is doing now and I know that never never never never any woman ever with just one look will be able to give me so much Sensations crowding my mind sweet sensations made of promises, kisses made of sounds in just one moment.. knowing you loving you and already knowing that that you got to go away that you got to go away, so far away I wish that never never never nobody in the world ever could steal you, take you away just like this train is doing now and I know that never never never never any woman ever with just one look will be able to give me so much no woman ever no woman ever none ever Sensations sensations that not even Time that not even Time will ever take away from me https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edoardo_Bennato
  8. There's also a live version of all these album tracks rec'd in a Norway theater...These here are the studio album tracks
  9. Discovered this album back in 1983 while visiting a buddy of mine in Oslo, Norway... Seeing how I loved this music he rec'd it on tape so I could take it back to Italy and listen to it whenever I wanted to.... Gambian and Norwegian musicians playing together...Great result imho Gambia is an English -speaking little country completely inside French-speaking Senegal, west Africa....Visited both in the 80's
