Solid Air is the fourth studio album by British folk singer-songwriter John Martyn, released in February 1973 by Island Records. The album was recorded over eight days and features instrumental contributions by bassist Danny Thompson and members of Fairport Convention. Solid Air", the title track, was dedicated to a friend of Martyn's, Nick Drake, who would die of an antidepressant overdose 18 months after the album was released
Martyn stepped out of his comfort zone to record and produce it, including not only jazz and blues but rock and plenty of sound effects, and featuring Rhodes piano on some of its tracks, dismaying some fans while winning a ton more for its genre-blurring presentation.

On the 40th anniversary of Solid Air, MAT SNOW speaks to friends, fellow travellers and bruised survivors to discover the pain, power, joy and sadness behind a master musician’s quest for freedom. QUADROPHENIA AND CATCH A Fire. Innovations and A Wizard, A True Star. Just off the top of your head, 1973 was a vintage year for the album. And then there’s Solid Air by John Martyn. Released exactly 40 years ago, here was a platter to warm the cockles of the college circuit cognoscenti, a dope-head’s delight which bottled a moment; a moment which then faded with its generation to become a period piece with only the faintest afterlife beyond its particular time and place. Then, in the 1990s, Solid Air found fresh followers.
Solid Air starts out strongly with the title track, Solid Air. His vocals take on a new heightened level of proficiency that easily surpasses anything heard on his prior work. The vocals slur and slide together with some words melting together in a heavily Jazz influenced tone that mix flawlessly with Martyn's warm and soulful backslap guitar. This Jazz influence is also represented with the sexy Tenor Saxophone that weaves in and out of the song that help to keep the listener enchanted in the song's sexy and mellow soul
