John & Beverley Martyn – Road to Ruin

The Road to Ruin (John and Beverley Martyn album)1970 – The Road To Ruin

The Road to Ruin is a 1970 album released by husband and wife John and Beverley Martyn. It was the second (and last) album released as a duo. Island persuaded John Martyn to resume his solo career as they believed that the public was more interested in John as a solo artist rather than as part of a duo.

The album’s first track “Primrose Hill” written and sung by Beverley Martyn, about the simple joys of domesticity, was extensively sampled by Fat Boy Slim for the track “North West Three” from his 2004 album Palookaville.
