The Road to Ruin (John and Beverley Martyn album). The Road to Ruin is a 1970 album released by husband and wife John and Beverley Martyn.

Following The Road to Ruin, Island persuaded John Martyn to resume his career as a solo artist because they believed that there was more public interest in solo singer/songwriters. Although she was spending more time with her children, Martyn continued to contribute to her husband's solo projects until the breakdown of their marriage. The couple divorced during the making of John Martyn's album Grace and Danger in 1980 and she retired from music for years. Martyn released a new album in 2014 entitled The Phoenix and The Turtle. It contains a previously unrecorded Nick Drake and Martyn song, "Reckless Jane". The album features bass by Matt Malley (Counting Crows), drums by Victor Bisetti (Los Lobos), acoustic guitars by Mark Pavey, electric guitars by Jakob Nebel (Livingston) and Michael Watts, and strings by Owain Roberts.

Road to Ruin, or The Road to Ruin may refer to: Road to Ruin (Ramones album), the 1978 album by the Ramones. Road to Ruin (The Mr. T Experience album), a 1998 tribute to the Ramones. The Road to Ruin (John and Beverley Martyn album), a 1970 folk album by John and Beverley Martyn. The Road to Ruin, a John Dortmunder novel by Donald E. Westlake. The Road to Ruin (1913 film), a 1913 silent film starring J. Warren Kerrigan and Charlotte Burton. The Road to Ruin (1928 film), a 1928 silent film.

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.

Island Records 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 marked the first collaboration on record between John and bassist Danny Thompson, who featured on many of Martyn's subsequent recordings
