John and Beverley Martyn released the excellent ROAD TO RUIN in 1970. It contains the songs "Primrose Hill," "Give Us a Ring," and "Say What You Can," among others.
The reissue comes with remastered sound and one demo which has not been previously released.
Recording information: Sound Techniques, Chelsea, MA (08/1970).
Much more of a collaboration here than on their previous effort, John and Beverley Martyn continue on their way through the British folk-jazz of the '70s. Flowing with a subtle improvisation that incorporated a greater ethnic feeling, Road to Ruin makes for enjoyable listening indeed. Good singing and playing make this a great album to sit back and reflect upon. ~ James Chrispell
