John Mayall Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton 180g LP
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 195/500!
180 Gram Virgin Vinyl! Includes 4 Rare Live Bonus Tracks!
This 1966 landmark album launched the blues-rock revolution of the mid-'60s.
The Bluesbreakers were formed in January 1963 and became an ever-evolving lineup
of more than 100 different combinations of musicians performing under that name.
Eric Clapton joined in 1965 just a few months after the release of their first
album. Clapton brought the blues influences to the forefront of the group.
"The blues breakers became one of London's hottest acts as soon as ex-Yardbird Clapton arrived, but that wasn't what he'd bargained for. "He just wanted to play his guitar," Mayall remembered. Except Clapton's solos with the Blues Breakers inspired his cult; this is when CLAPTON IS GOD graffiti first started to appear in London, and this record shows why. Along with the band's expert renderings of Freddie King's "Hideaway" and Robert Johnson's "Ramblin' on My Mind," the LP contains a nutty take on Ray Charles' "What'd I Say," whose long drum solo gave Clapton a preview of what he'd soon experience in Cream." - www.rollingstone.com
