British Bluesman inspired by US trip,
By A Customer
This review is from: Blues from Laurel Canyon (Audio CD)
This is an excellent, straight forward album originally released in 1968. Despite the cover pics of Mayall pretending to be a backwoodsman communing with nature and some crass lyrics the music hits the spot most of the time. It features an exciting, young Mick Taylor on guitar before he replaced Brian Jones in the Rolling Stones. (Tired of the same old Jagger/Richards riffs he joined the more adventurous Jack Bruce Band a few years later. A fine musical decision, if not a financial one.) I digress...A fine album with a good flow throughout. A really tight band with Stephen Thomson on bass and Carl Allen on drums.
