John & Beverley Martyn: Stormbringer!

[cover art]

Scottish folk singer John Martyn was originally hired to be his British wife Beverley's back-up guitarist for recording sessions in America, the pair were signed up by Warner Brothers who sent them to Woodstock in 1969 to rehearse with producer Paul Harris. The actual recording at R&R Studios, New York, took only six days with two days mixing. The album was released in February 1970. Martyn was inspired by The Band's Music From Big Pink to experiment to find a distinctive guitar sound. Two tracks "Would You Belief Me" and "The Ocean" marked the tentative introduction to Martyn's pioneering guitar technique.

Levon Helm guested on drums on the two tracks "Sweet Honesty" (Beverly Martin) and "John the Baptist" (John Martyn.)
