CD Reviews

Remastered Stereo and Mono Mixes
SirGeorgeMartini | Chihuahua Legs, Wyoming | 08/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Clapton's Les Paul/Marshall combo was revolutionary when this album was released. Some people may prefer the thinner sounding Strat on his solo recordings, but this is the ultimate tone for me, including the SG he played in Cream. Not only is the stereo version on this remastered CD, but original mono mix also appears with some very noticeable differences."
Definitive Version

"This remastered release features both mono and stereo versions of each cut, and the differences are astounding. Eric Clapton did some his most inspired playing with John Mayall."
Classic work that should be in any rock and roll fan's colle
Scott B. Saul | COOPER CITY, FL USA | 12/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a masterpiece from many angles. It is a bona fide, kick &%$, rock album, it is tremedous example of smoking blues guitar, and, of course, it is lesson number one for Brittish blues.

Eric Clapton established himself as the slinger on this album. He was unsettled with the pop yearnings of the Yardbirds and desired to pursue his blues calling. He also was one of the first guitarists to pick up a Gibson Les Paul and use it for blues music. He loved the fat tone and lasting sustain.

There are no highlights on this because every song is a winner. "All your love" starts out slow, established Mayall's soulful singing, and then picks up the pace with Clapton lighting it all up with a scorching solo.

"Hideaway" is an instrumental standard that is used commercially for an array of projects.

Ray Charle's "What'd I say" is amped up and much more muscular than what you may be used to hearing.

"Parchman Farm" is a showcase for John Mayall's harp playing and boy... does he ever get soulful. I think that is the high point of the cd.

All the songs here have received tons of radio airplay so they are all familiar sounding.

You cannot go wrong with this essential work. Blues fans, rock fans Clapton fans and guitar fans...this should be in your collection!"
