Our Review

While Eric Clapton had already reached godlike stature among British musos with his guitar work on the Yardbirds debut album, he was dissatisfied playing what he considered 'bubblegum pop," and jumped at the chance to play with John Mayall's fledgling blues outfit. With this album, Clapton returns to the blues and inspires Mayall to deliver some of his greatest performances ever on vocals and harp. Hear Clapton roar through the instrumental workout on Freddie King's "Hideaway," and gasp with glee as he burns through Robert Johnson's "Ramblin' On My Mind," and the Otis Rush classic "All Your Love." Even the Mayall/Clapton original "Double Crossing Time" is a slow blues mind-blower. If you dig Clapton, but have tired of his more acoustic work of late, check this out. It's solid smoke.

Customer Reviews

Blues Breakers (5 stars) Bought this album when I was nine years old (I'm 48 now). This was one of my major influences for learning to play guitar. I was hooked then - and glad to be re-hooked to it again. Pure blues, and I have this album to thank for my guitar playing today. A Must-Buy (5 stars) One of the best kept secrets of 60's blues. Its a shame that this isn't more popular. If i were in this band, my jaw would be on the floor, wondering why it hasn't sold more copies. Anyway.. pure gold! I love every track! Why it didn't sell (3 stars) ...is because it's neither fish nor foul. I like this album, don't get me wrong, liked it when it first came out (when I was 20), but it's not blues (sorry, but, without meaning to be purist or snobby about it, that's the truth, it's what passed for blues among white boys, and I say this with the authority of a white boy who's heard the greats like muddy waters & Junior Wells with Buddy Guy & Howlin' Wolf and James Cotton, as well a

Biography

Born: November 29, 1933 in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England Genre: Blues Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s As the elder statesman of British blues, it is John Mayall's lot to be more renowned as a bandleader and mentor than as a performer in his own right. Throughout the '60s, his band, the Bluesbreakers, acted as a finishing school for the leading British blues-rock musicians of the era. Guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor joined his band in a remarkable succession in the mid-'60s, honing their chops with Mayall before going on to join Cream, Fleetwood Mac, and the Rolling Stones, respectively....
