John & Beverly Martyn

"The Road To Ruin" 1970





















Much more of a collaboration here than on their previous effort, John & Beverly Martyn continue on their way through the British folk/jazz of the seventies. Flowing with a subtle improvisation that incorporated a greater ethnic feeling, Road to Ruin makes for enjoyable listening indeed. The track, "Give Us a Ring," was written for Nick Drake. Good singing and playing make this a great album to sit back and reflect upon. ~ James Chrispell, All Music Guide

I have always liked the track they had on Bumpers but I've never got round to investigating their elpees properly. I've got Solid Air/Inside Out/One World of course, but this is something different. Thanks very much!

No: I've got the original vinyl and it's a simple slipcover.
