John MayallBlues From Laurel Canyon ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
British blues meets LA's Laurel Canyon – a trans-Atlantic (or is it Pacific?) blend that makes for one of John Mayall's most compelling albums of the 60s! The album was recorded after the breakup of the Blues Breakers group – but it still features strong support from Mick Taylor on guitar – a key factor in the previous combo's sound, given almost even more space here to stand out front with Mayall. Other instrumentation includes bass and drums, plus a bit of tablas – and the overall approach is a lot more spare than other Blues Breakers sets – still bluesy in approach, but with some definite freer-thinking moments too, picked up from a trip to Laurel Canyon that was Mayall's inspiration for the set. Titles include "Walking On Sunset", "Vacation", "Ready To Ride", "Medicine Man", "Miss James", "The Bear", "First Time Alone", and "Fly Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album

John MayallMoving On ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Very Good- ... $7.99
Bill Cosby introduces this hip little live set from the John Mayall group – which is fitting, as there's definitely a bit of an LA groove on the set! Mayall's still in very bluesy territory, but he also gets some great soul jazz support too – from players who include Charles Owens on flute and soprano sax, Ernie Watts on tenor, and even the great Fred Jackson on baritone! Keef Hartley adds in some mighty heavy drums, but the group's further expanded by even more American players too – including Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Freddie Robinson on guitar – both players who definitely leave their mark on the set. There's some great electric piano too – and titles include the classic "Keep Our Country Green" – plus "Christmas 71", "Things Go Wrong", "Do It", "Moving On", "Red Sky", "Reasons", "High Pressure Living", and "Worried Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

John MayallTen Years Are Gone ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Very groovy work from John Mayall – a double-length set from the early 70s, featuring some great help from American soul jazz musicians! The group here is small, and the lineup features Red Holloway on saxes, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Sugarcane Harris on violin – all in a mode that has plenty of Mayall's familiar blues, but which also takes on some jazzier inflections too! The vibe's a bit like some of Sugarcane's albums of the time – rootsy in the rhythms, but tighter on instrumentation, with an occasional dose of funk – thanks to heavy drums from Keef Hartley, the only UK player who seems to be working on the date besides Mayall. Titles include "California Campground", "Drifting", "Driving Till The Break Of Day", "Don't Hang Me Up", "I Still Care", "Burning Sun", "Sitting Here Thinking", and "Dark Of The Night".

John Mayall's Blues BreakersBare Wires ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Another great step forward for the legendary John Mayall – proof that he was never just content to copy American blues modes, and always willing to bring something new to the table! Although steeped in sounds from the delta on up to Chicago, the record's also got a hipper, almost trippier feel at times too – long-winding interplay between the guitar and organ, and some slow-building rhythms that shake off blues stereotypes, and mark Mayall as having an equal ear for forward-thinking 60s rockers. The group here is great – with Mick Taylor on guitar, Henry Lowther on cornet, Chris Mercer on tenor, and Dick Heckstall-Smith on tenor and soprano sax – all playing in a freely creative mode that stands the test of time surprisingly well Titles include "I'm A Stranger", "Harley Quits", "Killing Time", "Sandy", "She's Too Young", and "No Reply".

John Mayall's Blues BreakersCrusade ... CD
London/Decca, 1967. Used ... $9.99
John Mayall's on a new crusade here – hitting lines that are almost more truly blusey than his previous albums – thanks to a new lineup in the Blues Breakers combo! Alongside Mayall's lead on vocals, organ, harmonica, and bottleneck guitar – the group also features Mick Taylor on guitar, John McVie on bass, Keep Hartley on drums, Chris Mercer on tenor, and Rip Kant on baritone sax – the latter two of whom help keep the set from being a straight Chicago electric blues copy. Titles include "I Can't Quit You Baby", "Streamline", "Snowy Wood", "Man Of Stone", "Stand Back Baby", and "My Time After A While". CD

John Mayall's Blues BreakersDiary Of A Band Vol 2 ... CD
Deram, 1967. Used ... $9.99
A definite diary of this unique British combo of the 60s – and a set that's arguably one of the band's bluesiest to date! The set features live recordings from 1967 – most very long and stretched-out, with a feel that's arguably even more rootsy than any American blues of the time – an possibly even more so than some of Mayall's earlier records too! The looseness of the performances really unlocks some new sounds in the group – and given the experimentation and intensity of some of these tracks, it's easy to see why they were such an important force at the time. Mick Taylor serves up some great guitar solos – and other players include Dick Heckstall-Smith and Chris Mercer on saxes, plus Keef Hartley on drums. Titles include "Local Boy Makes Good", "The Train", "Crying Shame", "Help Me", and "Blues In B flat". CD

John Mayall's Blues BreakersHard Road ... LP
Deram, 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A killer album from one of the most legendary versions of John Mayall's Blues Breakers – a quartet that features drummer Aynsley Dunbar, bassist John McVie, and lead guitarist Peter Green – who's also singing a fair bit on the album as well! The style here is tighter and more focused than before – showing a bit more of a rockish bent, especially on the guitars – but still strongly drenched in American R&B traditions, served up in a way that never waters down the sound for a mainstream audience. While other UK artists were taking American roots and softening them up for the charts, Mayall only seemed to deepen his commitment to more authentic representation of the styles – really only taking a bit more liberties with the strength and length of guitar parts. As before, there's a bit of reed work here that's especially nice – served up by UK jazzers Ray Warleigh, John Almond, and Alan Skidmore – and titles include "A Hard Road", "It's Over", "The Stumble", "Dust My Blues", "There's Always Work", "The Same Way", "The Supernatural", and "Living Alone".

✨✧ Blue MitchellBlue's Blues ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet soulful work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – a set that has him working with a slightly large group of players, but in a style that's always very much in the groove! There's a nice electric undercurrent to the record throughout – sometimes in the instrumentation from other players, sometimes in the overall way the grooves are put together – which gives the record a quality that's almost like a funky soundtrack at the best moments! The lineup is a bit weird, too – with Joe Sample on keyboards, Freddy Robinson on guitar, Herman Riley on tenor and flute, and even John Mayall on harmonica – playing with a vamping funky edge on a few tunes! The title track – "Blues Blues" – is a great little jazzy break number, and other tracks include "Granite & Concrete", "Casa Blues", and "I Didn't Ask To Be". CD

Raw blues from both sides of the Atlantic – a hip British album that features work from some key American players, as well as contributions from some of the up and coming Brit blues rockers of the late 60s!
