John MayallBack To The Roots ... LP
Polydor, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
John Mayall's definitely getting back to his roots here – and he's also getting help from an all-star cast as well! Mayall's vocals and piano are in fine form – almost with a rough-edged Blues Breakers sort of vibe, but sometimes a bit funkier too – in ways that strongly show the evolution of the older Brit blues groove into some hipper, more soul-drenched territory. Players on the record are a range of familiar names – including Eric Clapton on guitar, Johnny Amond on sax and flute, Harvey Mandel on guitar, Sugarcane Harris on violin, and Keef Hartley on some especially nice drums. Titles include "Prisons On The Road", "Groupie Girl", "My Children", "Home Again", "Blue Fox", "Boogie Albert", "Unanswered Questions", "Goodbye December", "Force Of Nature", and "Dream With Me". CD also features bonus tracks too – including "Accidental Suicide (1988 rmx)", "Force Of Nature (1988 rmx)", "Boogie Albert (1988 rmx)", "Television Eye (1988 rmx)", "Looking At Tomorrow (1988 rmx)", "Mr Censor Man (1988 rmx)", and "Home Again (1988 rmx)".

John MayallBlues From Laurel Canyon ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
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 Mayall's Blues BreakersBlues Breakers With Eric Clapton (180 gram mono version) ... LP
Deram/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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

John Mayall's Blues BreakersHard Road (mono version) ... LP
Deram/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
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".

John Mayall's Blues BreakersPlays John Mayall – Live At Klook's Kleek (expanded edition) ... LP
Deram, 1965. Very Good ... $49.99
The smoking debut of legendary UK bluesman John Mayall – and a live album at that! Although bluesy, the work here also has a fair bit of US R&B overtones – similar to those showing up in the beat group era work of Zoot Money, Georgie Fame, and others of the time – although with a style that's much rougher and rootsier than their work! Mayall plays plenty of Hammond and sings – and other instrumentation includes lots of raspy guitar next to bass, drums, and just a bit of alto sax – used to underscore some of the more R&B moments in the set. Titles inlcude "Crawling Up A Hill", "I Wanna Teach You Everything", "The Hoot Owl", "Doreen", "Chicago Line", and "What's The Matter With You". CD also features 5 bonus tracks that include "Crocodile Walk", "My Baby Is Sweeter", "Blues City Shakedown", and "Mr James". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original UK pressing! Vinyl is nice, but has some light sleeve marks on the surface from the old plastic inner sleeve. Cover has a small name on back, and one slightly bumped corner, but is nice too.)
