On No Little Boy, John Martyn reconsiders his past work from a mature perspective. There are few traces of his folkie period to be heard here - his distinctive acoustic-guitar touch is downplayed in favor of a lustrous jazz-rock ensemble sound. Signature tunes like Bless the Weather, Solid Air, and Head and Heart lose their former intimacy in favor of a punchier, more percussive approach.
No Little Boy was remastered and released by Voiceprint Records on 3rd March 2008. The tracklisting remained the same as the original album that was released on 23rd July 1993 but with enhanced artwork and sleeve notes. John was unhappy that Couldn’t Love You More had been released. John was in fine voice throughout and Levon Helm, Phil Collins and Andy Sheppard all featured. Some songs were slightly remixed to bring more character to the songs but most songs were completely overhauled.
