Fantasia based on a Theme By Alice Coltrane My god-daughter Betsy came to stay for an all too short week in February and among the many fun times we had, we spent some time in my studio.   Largely improvising we laid down three tracks – two of which were worth completing and releasing.   This piece is a Fantasia based on a Theme By Alice Coltrane.

Salisbury are excited to present to you their third music video “I Told Her Once” The song was originally written and performed by Martin Lukeover and Martin Valins and then Richard Knowles back in London UK in the 1970’s. With Salisbury reforming in 2017 it was a natural decision to revisit this old favorite with added lyrics and verses by Richard and arrangements by bassist Andrew Barton.  On this 2018 video Salisbury are joined on stage, with grateful thanks, by Monica Bergo. So let the party begin ……………………Here is - I told Her Once -  By Salisbury

We had such fun writing and recording this new song and we hope you enjoy it. With love from Salisbury Naked and Free - (Knowles/Valins)Soul searching for an answer, for a love that’s clearly over  He treats you oh so badly, yet you seem to love him madly How could I have turned you, to the man that you have turned to? Though my heart may still be burning, for now I’m finally learningThat no one control what’s deep inside of meAnd the thing that I want most in life is to be naked and free, Our love is really over, your coldness made me sober Memories of love and hate, still make me sit and contemplate But life only gives you one shot, so make the most of what you’ve got Though my heart may still be burning, for now I’m finally learningThat no one control what’s deep inside of me And the thing that I want most in life is to be naked and free, That no one control what’s deep inside of me And the thing that I want most in life is to be naked and free, I’m waiting for the waiting, for my time is getting older and the distance getting smaller, for the love you can’t get over I’m the man who screwed you sober, and the wheels that keep on turningfor my heart that still is burning, for now I’m finally learningThat no one control what’s deep inside of meAnd the thing that I want most in life is to be naked and free,

Sugar Baby Lori Oz & Martin Valins The song Sugar Baby started life just as a sketch of an idea I had - but once I shared it with Lori she transformed it into a dramatic piece in the best tradition of a classic torch song. It has been a real privilege to witness at first hand the creative process of this incredible artist. This is our first collaboration and we are looking forward to working together on future projects.

Martin Valins In Concert - The Songs Of Andy Staines - Live. Andy Staines in the 1970s had long hair a beard and was a very happy hippie. He had a voice like honey and a beautiful smile. I met Andy at Loughton College in Essex UK. The same college that Mark Knopfler taught at before turning pro in ‎Dire Straits. I just loved the music Andy played and after I showed him some of my songs, we became good friends. Andy and I wrote songs just two two acoustic guitars and an old Philips reel to reel tape recorder to capture the moment. We did a lot of live concerts. If you were at University in London during the early 1970’s chances are you saw Andy and I play at the college gigs. I lost contact with Andy - but these songs are too precious not to share with my friends and fans around the world. You can also hear the original Demos we made at my Bandcamp page http://martinvalins1.bandcamp.com/album/demos-ep-1971-2-andy-staines-martin-valins This is my tribute to those past days and to Andy’ songs.

She is coming near You will no longer fear For the one who holds out the light Just look into her eyes Thank you to dear Monica was what I consider an incredible performance both theatrically and musically !! On a lonely street Distant souls will meet Looking across the night For no reason why If you find me there If you really care For the one who holds out the light Just look into her eyes The winds begin to howl Darkness is all around As you walk into the shrine For no reason why You are all alone You have left your home For the one who holds out the light Just look into her eyes There dancing all around The one is coming down As you calling out to cry For no reason why She is coming near You will no longer fear For the one who holds out the light Just look into her eyes ©2017martinvalinsmusic

Lets Find The Love Monica Bergo Martin Valins. Monica and I are very happy to present another song we have collaborated on. The theme of the song is to find the love that appeared to be all around us in the summer of 1967 - As more than ever today we need more love for everyone. Thank you Monica Bergo for singing with me on the song and the video and for the 60”s costume. As always it was fun to make and we hope you will like our song Lets Find The Love. This will be the first single from a new album I am working on called Rosecroft Avenue. Lets Find The Love By Monica Bergo Martin Valins. I’m crying Crying out in pain I’m hurting its happening again Look for a reason When theres no reason why Look for the rain clouds With not a cloud in the sky Why can’t we get along together Why can’t we see, each others side… We’re running out of time my brothers To find the love Thats here and deep inside Who can we turn to Who do we believe Turn on the TV Politicians deceive Why can’t we get along together Why can’t we see, each others side… We’re running out of time my sisters To find the love Thats here and deep inside No more tears Look to the stars up above No more fears So let’s find the love ©2017 martinvalinsmusic

When loves goes wrong - at the time it may seem your world had ended - Not true. It's just a beginning, always, to a brighter future and a better day. You turn around and after the healing you can say "I'm Doing Fine With Out You" I’m Doing Fine Without You - Martin Valins How many Times did you think of me lately? How many times since where’ll through? And how many times did you want back so badly? Well I’m doing fine with out you The sun went down and was dark when you left here What you said - nothing was true Now the you’ve gone I changed my life completely and I’m doing fine without you. Our lives are on path Then how did I get lost For being who I am The wires got crossed When you came - you came around You think you are pretty smart By breaking my heart Then how do you explain These feelings of pain But I turned I turned around Thinking it over I must have been so sad But how could you be so cruel You may ask if that made me mad Well Im doing fine without you Time had come to ease away the pain You left me alone for someone new But when I look at where I stand today I’m doing fine with out you Our lives are on path Then how did I get lost For being who I am The wires got crossed When you came - you came around You think you are pretty smart By breaking my heart Then how do you explain These feelings of pain But I turned I turned around Now my days are passing so quickly I wonder what is left to do If you ever worried what happened to me maybe? Well I did just fine without you How many Times did you think of me lately? How many times since where’ll through? And how many times did you want back so badly? Well Im doing fine with out you Our lives are on path Then how did I get lost For being what I am The wires got crossed When you came - you came around So look out on the street To find a friendly face Smile in their direction Show them every grace That you’ll come - you/ll come around ………..and If you you worried what happened to me lately Well I’m doing fine without you……………… ©2016 martinvalinsmusic

Song For Dream Martin Valins/Monica Bergo I love the songs that you sing to me I love the music that we play Its not clear what they are meant to be How could that be But in my dreams I want this to stay La notte la mia mente vola e va E mondi nuovi creerà La nostra musica trasformerà in un sogno, questa mia realtà I had a dream that you were with me We played our music in the sun It felt so good to be near you Oh Yea Our journey had just begun…. un incantesimo profondo che sfida questa eternità se apro gli occhi ancora canto con te e la magia si rinnoverà Its been some time since Ive felt this way Its been a while since I could say You and I live in harmony For eternity And in my dreams I want this to stay Di che sono fatti questi sogni miei Dell’entusiasmo dentro noi e questa musica ci avvolgerà, ci nutrirà al sicuro ci custodirà And I awoke and it is morning Feeling cold I face the day And you are gone and was never really here But in my heart you want this to stay……. ©martinvalinsmusic/Monica Bergo 2017

Walk Away By Samantha Rose & Martin Valins Samantha and I are so excited about our second collaboration "Walk Away”. I had a basic chord structure that I then just threw to Sam. She turned this around with a vocal melody and lyrics that just blew me away.  Her voice is as sweet as an angel yet listen to her lyrics and there is something much darker going on. Working with Samantha always pushes me higher I am so thankful to be her musical partner on this song. We are already talking about working on an EP together and I cannot wait.

JOURNEY - WORDS AND MUSIC MARTIN VALINS We are on a journey Caught up on this journey Where will it end We cannot know. Some will get there sooner Some will get there later All we can do right now Is let flow All we are hoping for All we are reaching for and all we are waiting for is there is there Looking out across the sky Where are we heading - how do we try The Oceans are rising the deserts on fire In the dark of the night I will cry We all are looking for love So make this mine Make this mine………… And when I reach there Will I find my love If love is there - I will go We are on a journey Caught up on this journey Where will it end We cannot know.

Just Smile - Written and Performed By Martin Valins I wrote this song last year [2015] and just made a basic demo ……..then as I began to compose the Album “Arcadia “ the words and music seemed to fit it’s concept of a collection of songs built around the search for Arcadia. The Greek legend of a mythical and unspoiled wilderness where there is harmony and peace in abundance…… Its a song about finding peace and happiness to such an extent - that the only thing left to do is Smile. I do hope you enjoy both the song and the video………..Please also check out my You Tube Channel for my other songs. You can also find more music to download or stream at by web page. martinvalinsmusic.

But then I heard someone say that we should not let minds that hate dictate what we do in the name of love. Plus the song on Fanda by Richard Trudeau Joyce Walsh and friends, Lennon’s Across The Universe “Nothing’s going to change my world”. So with a heavy heart we move forward. “A Page In His Life” is another song from my album Arcadia. The album is built around the search for the Greek legend of a mythical and unspoiled wilderness called Arcadia, where there is harmony and peace in abundance…… Our traveler is now nearing what he hopes will be his Arcadia. But before going forward he must confront his past. If the stages and changes in our lives are like chapters in a book - so at each point we turn a page for a new beginning. This was an actual page in my life………. The video was a dream I had of a Fanda concert or a Fanstock. I hope you enjoy ……..Peace love and understanding to all. Martin x

The Love In Us All. I thought I had finished this song. But when I played it for Monica she came back with an incredible top vocal over the chorus that made the song 100 times better. Such is her talent and musical ear. I am so thankful she agreed to record her vocals over my original version and then to create such an exciting video that is so full of life! I am sure War will agree with me that making videos with Monica or Kathy takes so much pressure off of us guys as we know for certain that no one I mean no one will be watching us when Monica or Kathy are on the screen ! Anyway Monica and I hope you like our song “The Love In Us All” - Love and light - Martin x

Summer 71 Written and performed by Andy Staines. This is the original home recording of ‘Summer 71” I had to remove as much tape hiss as I could so pease excuse the poor quality of this recording however - what I hope you hear is a very delicate song sung quire beautifully by Andy Staines. I really do not know what happened to Andy after we left college - I hope wherever he is that he may one day hear this and know that his talent and skills as a musician and songwriter is still being appreciated many years on and far from where this home recording was made.

Addisyn’s Song. This is the last track from the Album ’”In From TheOutside” I have so enjoyed sharing this, my second album with my friends at Fandalism. The song is about and dedicated to my granddaughter. The spirit of the song is also dedicated to my darling God-daughter Betsy. I am sure you would say the same about your own children and grandchildren and God-children there is a very special love there. You only want good things love and happiness for them, and worry about the challenges they may face ahead. “May you always find sunbeams and sweet dreams and love, And divinely be guided with light from above”. Peace & Love Martin x

And all we are hoping for And all we are reaching for And all we are waiting for Is there …………………………………. Just once in a while you come across a voice that is so full of feeling and soul that you just have to hear it. It almost demands that you stop whatever you are doing and just listen. Such is the voice of Kathy Shortt. Her solo and collaborative work on Fandalism You Tube and elsewhere is all of such high standard that I very nervously approached Kathy with a song that I thought would fit both of our vocal styles. Kathy has been such fun to work with……..It is my honor to share our first collaboration with our friends. Thank you Kathy for all you have done to make this Journey with me. Martin x

Profondità By Monica Bergo and Martin Valins We are excited to share again our collaboration on the song Profondità We are sharing this on the first anniversary of its original release. The translation of the Italian word “Profondità" into English is "depth”. The river of love and good friendship has great depth - and that is what this song is about…….finding that river is our quest ……..and it will take time because we are all on a journey……. As well as being fun from start to finish, it was an honor and a real privilege to create this song to share with our friends.

The Perfect Prize - I have always loved the band “Squeeze” - their songs have that Beatle touch and are also essentially English - well more London. I wanted to write a song in that vein and The Perfect Prize is what emerged. About a guy who gets on a train to see if his love would be there to meet him at the station. Like a Squeeze song it has a narrative a beginning and an end. I do hope you like it. This song is from my Album “In From The Outside” - You can download it at iTunes or stream on Apple Music. Thank you for listening - Love Martin x

Summer 71. I was art college in Loughton Essex in the early 1970’s and began playing and performing at folk clubs with Andy Staines. He was a beautiful guy, long hair very laid back. He wrote some amazing songs and was an accomplished guitarist and singer with a voice like honey. One day round at my parents house he played this song to me and I was blown away. It’s about a lost love after a warm romantic summer. I lost touch with Andy and really do not know how he is or where he is. If any one was at Loughton College 1970 - 1972 please let me know if you have any information. I[He lived in Epping] In the meantime I offer to all who want to listen, this beautiful song Summer 71 words and music by Andy Staines.

As Paul McCartney once sang "I go back so far I'm in front of me" This was my school band called Lopp... read morey's Lott. We played several local gigs and I actually wrote "When The Light" at this time and my good friend Pete Spence arranged it for the band. We recorded this in 1968 at Pete's parents house all cramming drums piano and guitars into one room. Forgive the quality as it's a home recording...........it has a lot of good memories and its now my favorite Golden Oldie.
