#MC50 is a collection of YouTube videos featuring rare live and studio tracks sourced from my personal archive of radio recordings, mostly from the late-80s onwards. I published a different recording each month during 2015 to celebrate 50 years since the release of Martin’s first solo album. I tried to include a representative cross-section of solo, duo, group and family recordings. Some of the audio is in less-than-pristine condition but everything has its merits to some extent and I think it’s been worth including all of them for one reason or another. Here’s the complete collection:
