The Best of the Island Years is a 4-disc digest version of last year’s, definitive 18 disc set covering John Martyn’s classic years with Island Records between 1967 and 1987.  All 56 tracks on the 4-disc edition capture Martyn at the height of his creativity on the label; all of them have been chosen from the out-takes, unreleased songs and rare live recordings that were first included on The Island Years 18CD Box Set. This collection features the best of the rarities from The Island Years and creates an exceptional collection of recordings for fans who have everything but the complete box set. It includes three songs which were unreleased prior to inclusion on the complete box set – ‘Hi Heel Sneakers’, from the Grace And Danger sessions, ‘Love In Your Life’ from Sapphire and ‘Lifeline’ from the Apprentice sessions, Martyn’s final recordings for the Island Records.
