Biography

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 ... Read more in Amazon's John Mayall Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 four CD anthology from the British Blues legend. John Mayall's band, The Bluesbreakers ,were undoubtedly a hot-house for the British Blues scene in the late '60s and early '70s and it's quite staggering when you examine the roll call of floating members who served their apprenticeship with John Mayall including Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Keef Hartley, John McVie, Mick Taylor and Steve Winwood. This lavish box set contains 74 tracks, all newly remastered from the original master tapes, including five tracks released in Europe on CD for the first time. The 40-page booklet features sleevenotes by Mark Powell with rare and previously unseen photographs. Universal.

On the basis that confession is good for the soul, a terrible secret needs to be unveiled. No beating around the bush will hide the fact that only one John Mayall album is to be found in this properties record racks and it is of course the ubiquitous Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton. This has been a source of enduring shame for this reviewer and bearing in mind that Mayall at the age of 77 is currently touring to promote his 57th album then there is some catching up to do. Yet for the interested as opposed to the fanatical, who probably own the totality of the fifty plus albums, "So many roads" is a fine starting point which contains a wealth of music from the finest era of this grandee of British blues.

Mayall's assorted Bluesbreakers lineups amount to one of the greatest cast list of premier division rock musicians. Clapton of course stands top of the pile but let us not forget Jack Bruce, Peter Green, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Mick Taylor, Don "Sugarcane" Harris, Harvey Mandel, Aynsley Dunbar, Jon Hiseman, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Andy Fraser (well at least for a couple of weeks!), Walter Trout and Coco Montoya amongst many others. Upon leaving the Yardbirds, Eric Clapton was a blues hardliner who was travelling through to bigger, but not always better things. His Gibson Les Paul was played to perfection during this part of his career particularly on the cover of Ray Charles "What I'd say" which is surprisingly funky (although I could do without the drum solo) while the sublime "All your love" and and "Steppin Out" still resonate down the years.

Clapton's replacement by Peter Green was a master-stroke by Mayall and his compositions like the instrumental "Supernatural" showcase a burgeoning song writing talent and act as a precursor for Greens latter Fleetwood Mac songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Mayall September 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John Mayall is an acquired taste. As you may know, many musicians played with John Mayall. Associated acts; John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, Canned Heat, Cream, Fleetwood Mac, Keef Hartley Band, Mark-Almond, Pure Food and Drug Act. If you like blues, add it to your collection.
And by the way, His newer stuff is real good too.
