Vince Martin

Vince Martin's primary claim to fame is that he was briefly in a duo with the far more famous (and talented) singer/songwriter Fred Neil, recording one rare LP with him, Tear Down the Walls, just before Neil went solo. Martin had actually entered the music business as a teenager, getting a Top Ten hit with "Cindy Oh Cindy" (backed by the Tarriers) in 1956, and met Neil around 1960, although the two didn't team up until 1964. The record is far more notable for the contributions of Neil (who wrote about half the songs, the others being largely comprised of folk standards) than the far more ordinary-sounding Martin. There's a bit of a schizophrenic feel to the album -- coffeehouse-styled folk on the one hand, and bluesy, more idiosyncratic stuff on Neil's tunes -- and Neil's original songs would have been far more suited to solo delivery than the duet arrangements that made their way onto the release. Still, it's a nice-enough sounding collectable, and also notable for foreshadowing folk-rock in its use of Felix Pappalardi (later to produce Cream) and a pre-Lovin' Spoonful John Sebastian (harmonica) as session musicians. Martin later released some even more obscure material for Capitol as a solo artist, the first of which was If the Jasmine Don't Get You the Bay Breeze Will. The LP, like Fred Neil's Sessions, was produced by Nik Venet, and has a loose jammy vibe. Unsurprisingly, given how Martin and Neil had crossed paths in the 1960s, it was similar in some respects to Neil's work, though the tone was lighter and more country-folk inflected. Another album, Vince Martin, appeared on Capitol in 1973. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Continuing on: Fred did not slide into obscurity. He lived his song The Dolphins, devoting the rest of his life to the Dolphin Foundation, and died from melanoma from being out in that bright Florida sun too much.

I have been a fan of Fred and Vince separately and together since the very early 70's and have listened to their music on vinyl, on tape, on cd, and now on Pandora, since then. I have had the pleasure of seeing each of them perform live in the 70's. Living in the Grove back then I lived that experience of the Jasmine and the Bay Breeze and...someti m e s that's a good thing, sometimes not. But their music was, and is, amazing. Don't underrate Vince.

I still consider Vince one of my music mentors. First adult who invited me as a 15 year old to call him by his first name. That meant alot back in 1965.
I'm impressed with this "ordinary sounding" original music.

Once again, a jerkoff writer criticizes someone that actually created something

I was fortunate to see Vince perform at The Coffee House, Miami in the early 60's. He really did "Tear Down The Walls!" His performance of "Sinner Man" blew me away.

Vince Martin's voice and styling are absolutely gorgeous.
Fred Neil was great in his own way but this writers damning with faint praise is undeserved.

I think he has an amazing tone to his voice. Just love his "Snow Shadows."
