CD Reviews

You get Mayall
Bob Davis | Christchurch New Zealand | 03/25/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mayall is revered as a blues legend for the band members he had and has. This old album (which I have played for 30+ plus years) highlights how good Mayall is himself where he plays every sound on the album apart from some drums from Hughie Flint. The result is a classic blues album. The album features his song writing and playing ability whether on harmonic, guitar or keyboards. As the liner notes say, his guitar is unlikely to cause others to jump off bridges (or words to that effect), but listening to his historic 9 string guitar or harmonica or his keyboards envokes strong emotions. There are many highlights, but the best are 'Sonny boy blow' and 'Broken wings'."
Its all about Marsha's Mood
Katy | England | 09/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I am no expert! Yet in my humble opinion the track "Marsha's Mood" is the quintessensial blues number. It conveys strong and disturbed emotion with beautiful simplicity. Mayall's music may be described as unpolished but for me this only creates depth and raw sentiment."
Nearly five stars
Scott E. Porter | Chicago, IL United States | 10/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album could easily be five stars, but it depends upon your musical desire. I think that the best way to sum up this album is simple blues. Clearly Mayall is better known for the guitarist he helped to introduce but this album is not about the legendary guitarists or the bandmembers with whom he has played. This album is about simple blues and is certainly a great introduction vs. addition to any blues collection."
