✨✧ John MayallTen Years Are Gone ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a cut corner, and a name in marker. Labels have a name in marker.)

John Mayall's Blues BreakersBare Wires ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Mayall's Blues BreakersBlues Breakers With Eric Clapton ... LP
Deram, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly one of the best-remembered albums by John Mayall's legendary Blues Breakers combo – thanks to vocals and guitar from a young Eric Clapton! Clapton at this point is way fresher than in later years – not prone to cliches, and still coming across with a raw, edgey power that is drenched in American blues tradition. Mayall's great too – wailing on harmonica, organ, and piano – and other members of the core group include John McVie on bass and Hughie Flint on drums – augmented by contributions from UK jazzers John Almond on baritone sax and Alan Skidmore on tenor. Titles include "All Your Love", "Little Girl", "Key To Love", "Parchman Farm", "Have You Heard", "It Ain't Right", and "Steppin Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label US pressing. Cover has some splitting on the spine.)

✨✧ John Mayall's Blues BreakersCrusade ... CD
London/Decca, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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
