Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 195/500!
1966’s seminal Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton marked John Mayall’s
emergence as a major recording artist, as well as his commercial breakthrough.
The 12-song LP, considered by many to be the most influential British blues
album of all time, marked the official introduction of Mayall’s long-running,
ever-evolving combo the Bluesbreakers. Mayall shares the spotlight here with
soon-to-be-superstar guitarist Eric Clapton (who quit the Yardbirds in order to
pursue his blues muse with Mayall), along with future Fleetwood Mac co-founder
John McVie on bass and Hughie Flint on drums. Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton
is generally acknowledged as a musical milestone for Clapton; his scorching
playing and over-the-top tone dominates the entire album. With the group’s
punchy performances captured in straightforward style by noted producer Mike
Vernon, the album offers a potent combination of Mayall originals and
distinctive interpretations of songs by Ray Charles, Freddie King, Little Walter
and Otis Rush.
Sourced from the pristine U.K. mono masters, this classic LP is pressed on
blue vinyl and includes the complete original artwork and photos. Mono Edition.
