4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for blues lovers, 12 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Blues Breakers (Audio CD)
This studio recordings of John Mayall's band are really good!! And, in my opinion, owe it all to a certain Mr. Clapton. His guitar tone was ground breaking in those days (he was the first to record in the studio at full stage-volume) and his playing 35 years ago still influences the aspiring guitar player today. At this stage he was near his peak as an innovative guitarist and is really (at the age of 21) a pretty accomplished blues player. So, the selections are very good, the playing is phenomenal (except for a drum solo we all could live without), and the sound is excellent. Still, I won't give it 5 stars because of John Mayall's weak vocals. It certainly is a relief everytime I get to one of the last tracks "Rambling On My Mind", the classic Robert Johnson cover which Eric delivers solo, and though his singing is still a bit insecure, he sure does sound charming and, as he will do from now on in his career, feeling every single word he's singing. So, you guessed right, Eric is for me, the highlight of the cd, but if you don't believe me just check out "Rambling On My Mind" and the way the man solos on "Have You Heard", and that should be enough to convince you... This is a must for all Clapton lovers as well as for the blues aficionado.
I love you, Esther.
