By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Mayall's back catalogue is in a bit of a mess - this CD used to mop up some bits and pieces including some old Decca singles featuring Peter Green which weren't on CD anywhere else but have since been included in the deluxe editions of reissue CD albums. There is also the compilation 'Thru the Years' which has a similar (but different) selection of tracks. However, this CD does give a good overview of Mayall's 60s output and contains some great tracks of what was, in my opinion, his most creative period.

We start with two pre-Clapton tracks that demonstrate Mayall's often overlooked song-writing ability, the catchy instrumental "Blues city shakedown" and the Elmore James tribute "Mr James". We then have a live version of "Stormy Monday" featuring Clapton and Jack Bruce, not the world's best recording but a rare nice-to-have example of live Mayall & Clapton. Then come 5 indispensable Peter Green tracks- including two Otis Rush slow blues, a rocking version of Johnny Guitar Watson's "Looking back", a nice cover of "It hurts me too" and Mayall's own wonderful acoustic song "Sitting in the rain", with some great guitar from Peter. There is then half (?) of the song "Suspicions" featuring Mick Taylor and finally the Mayall single "Picture on the wall" and its flipside "Jenny", my two least favourite songs.

All-in-all a bit of a ragbag of a collection but if you haven't heard the marvellous tracks featuring Peter Green (including "Jenny") then this is a bargain way to acquire them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven compilation, but still ....... 10 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
I admit I've always been a bit biassed against this release. In Holland we were blessed with a compilation release called "So Many Roads" which had the original singles mixes of Double Touble & It Hurts Me Too, not the US-mixes that are on this "Looking Back" comp that omit Peter Green's trademark space-echo guitar sound and add an annoying tingling piano to It Hurts Me Too.
That being said, there are other treasures to be found here. Suspicion pt.1, even though pt.2 is the better track, & Jenny are welcome additions to my Mayall collection. The live recording of Stormy Monday is notable only for the line-up of the Bluesbreakers, which included both Clapton & Jack Bruce, but falls way below par in the recording department.
Still, all 'n all a pretty fair recapture of Mayall singles but once you've got yourself a copy, you really can't do without the "Through The Years" compilation .......;^)

4.0 out of 5 stars Look Back On This Album 30 Aug 2009
By r2uzenblot VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
A storming album from John Mayall. His soulful blues voice comes out beautifully from the opening track Mr James. Unlike fellow compatriots of his time , like Rory gallagher, John Mayall never really wen down the rock road too much and this album is full of traditional blues classics. So Many Roads sums the album up with traditional routes and little credit towards the electric rock era, yet with some beautiful electric guitar playing...... My favourite track is It Hurts Me Too with some stonking piano work. Good album and should be part of your collection.

I have had this album on vinyl since the sixties but it became unplayable so a replacement was a must. Nuff said?!
