I don't know who has had access to Decca's vaults but, lucky people, they've come up some gems from their great 60's blues catalogue. Listen to cuts from Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, 1964, the long lost Blues Now lp, 1965, Raw Blues, 1966, John Mayall's first three Decca albums, and the Savoy Brown and Keef Hartley bands from later in the decade. Although it's an uneven collection, as compilations usually are, there are some great tracks, especially from US visitors. Eddie Boyd, Champion Jack Dupree, Curtis Jones and Otis Spann, all benefited from contributions from British musicians, among them Eric Clapton, Steve Angelo (Winwood), and the inevitable Bluesbreakers.

Some of Champion Jack Dupree's work for Decca, including the rare London Special 1964 ep with Keith Smith's Jazz Band, still remains hidden away; I'd love to hear his All Right (great trombone!) and the sublime I'm a Prisoner (exquisite solo from trumpeter Keith Smith) from Blues Now on cd. From that album we at least have Otis Spann's Pretty Girls Everywhere and Mae Mercer's gutsy Sweet Little Angel. Raw Blues with Mayall, Clapton, Spann etc, can still be found on cd, just, but in case you can't get a copy, grab this while you can. The rest of the Decca Scene series cds look good too. Go get `em!

I love this stuff, the 60's British blues scene, rough, ready & bursting with enthusiasm. This is a aural snap shot, outtakes & obscurities before the business took over.Well worth it at this price!

I missed out on much of the Blues Scene in the 60s as I was a bit of a teeny bopper, so much enjoyed listening to Savoy Brown and others of the 60s. Good to hear the things from John Mayall who was my first introduction to the Blues. Supernatural is still as good as ever.

This CD HAS BOUGHT BACK SOME WONDEFUL MEMORIES OF A TIME WHEN ALL THE BANDS ON THIS COULD BE SCENE AND HERD ON A WEEKLEY BASIS AT ANY OF THE MANY CLUBS IN AND LONDON AND HOME COUNTIES, THE COOKS FERRY EDMONTON WAS MY LOCAL GIG AND I HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE TO HERE MOST OF MOST OF GUYS ON THIS CD AT HE COOKS FERRY INN. I WAS LUCKEY ENOUGH TO HAVE BEEN A YOUNG BUCK ON THE SCENE , HIGHLIGHT OF THE CD FOR ME IS GRAHAM BONDS ALTO SOLO ON ON AKs NIGHT TIME IS THE RIGHT TIME. THANKS FOR A GREAT CD.

A musical time machine, this compilation took me back to the fledgling blues scene in the 60's. I'd forgotten how much energy went into these tracks, well done Decca! Fantastic value, dip your bread.

what can i say a brilliant cd of essential 1960s blues by some of the best such as john mayall etc.
these are original tracks from decca-quality is good.
unlike some compilations this has a very good percentage of realy good tracks-personally for me over 85 per cent of which i enjoy so i definately recommend this cd
this will certainly be used a great deal.

Early British blues scene - this has what you'd expect in the track listing and so much more. Good value.

An excellent example of blues heard on the late 60s UK club circuit.
