CD Reviews

A Must for Mayall /Clapton/Talyor fans
Bob Davis | Christchurch New Zealand | 01/22/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As a Mayall/Clapton/Taylor junkie, this album (though poor sound quality) is an essential. It highlights the early live sound of the above. It features the pre-Cream combination of Jack Bruce and Clapton. It also shows the promise of a young Mick Taylor."
If you are a guitar player into blues, you will want this.
Bob Davis | 10/28/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very interesting Mayall album showcasing the talents of Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor under Mayall's mentorship. Their are a couple of tracks without any guitar leads as well.If you are a student of 60s guitar playing you will want to hear this. Clapton plays a version of "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" that is chilling on this CD. You would swear that he has transformed himself into Freddie King for the gig. Mick Taylor stretches out for a very long solo and explores (probably invents) sitar like blues guitar.The CD was recorded on some kind of bootleg equipment at blues clubs in the mid 60s and the sound quality suffers, but this is still one of my favorite CDs.If you are a Brit Blues fan, buy it."
A wonderful document of a brilliant musical era

"The Amazon editorial review couldn't be more mistaken. Far from this CD "representing the bottom of the barrel in terms of digging up old Mayall/Clapton tracks", this set of music is frequently brilliant in execution. Clapton's playing is at its peak of rawness and fluidity, and exhibits the transition from the Bluesbreakers CD to Cream. We also get a hint of the Clapton/Bruce collaborative skill on "Hoochie Coochie Man". The Mick Taylor contributions are no less stellar and show most clearly that his talent was wasted during his Stones years. It is true that the sound quality is not perfect, but considering that this is a semi-bootleg from the mid-sixties, the sound is better than might be expected. This is one of my favourite CDs of this period and I recommend it to all."
