One World is a 1977 album by John Martyn. One of his more experimental works, it features atmospheric, reggae influenced rhythms and free-flowing, jazzy arrangements. Acclaimed for its collaborative spirit, the album includes contributions from Lee Perry on "Big Muff", and Steve Winwood (keyboards). The album is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die by Robert Dimery.

John Martyn is one such musician. Martyn began his career in the late ’60s playing folk in the clubs, but since then and through the course of some ten albums his music has seamlessly absorbed a succession of influences, yet remained immediately recognisable as his alone. Tokenism is not Martyn’s thing. He was, for example, very taken by reggae and so went to live in Jamaica for a while, playing with such producers as Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Jack Ruby (on Burning Spear’s wonderful ‘Man In The Hills’)  . Grace & Danger’ is perfectly capable of recommending itself on its own considerable merits. It’s also the best album I’ve heard all year. Angus MacKinnon New Musical Express 25 October 1980.

Following a short layoff, John Martyn returned with his 12th record (including two with wife Beverley and a best-of collection), Grace & Danger. The album, which finds Martyn fronting a tight quartet featuring Phil Collins on drums and backing vocals, paints a stark, painful portrait of Martyn and Beverley's crumbling marriage. Close friend and Island Records president Chris Blackwell reportedly found the songs so personal and unsettling that he delayed its release for a year.

GRACE & DANGER is the album through which I discovered the great singer-songwriter JOHN MARTYN. Back in 1981: I still remember running my fingers through the record bins and coming across this album. Looking at the cover I wondered what type of music this, to me unknown, artist would play. I saw John Martyn play live for the first and only time about five years later. An all electric set. It wasn’t the greatest concert I’d seen but it was the great John Martyn nonetheless.
