No one does blues like the English

"The scope of Mayall's career is wide, but this two-cd set does a wonderful job of capturing a period that was probably his most creative. There's some great, intropsective numbers with acoustic guitar and flute, as well as some rocking jams with electrics and horns -- overall a great bunch of tunes. It's an excellent place to start if you're curious about Mayall's music; all the tracks, save three or four of them, are solid."
A Nice Slice of The Man's Career

"Among my old albums is this one and I'd gladly buy the CD if it were only available. For some John Mayall was never mainstream and you had to be into the blues to appreciate his contribution. Although this album is not perfection, it is highly listenable and will make you understand why Mayall is an icon. The British musicians have always slavered over American blues music and set about to recreate it and on the way create some of their own. This album is from a great period in Mayall's career and attention was brought to this album by the release as a single of "Don't Waste My Time" (with your jive), a rousing harmonica-laced hit. If you can find it, buy it. You won't be sorry."

"Mayall is a genius.
And that's not an emotional statement. The melodic lines , the sense of beating , the caleidoscopic moods , the fertile imagination for create this level of music , makes of him an exceptional music far beyond the standard.
Room to move is simply rhytm and harmonica virtuosity in his peak. And it never will sound as an old fashioned song . due precisely its immortal virtue.
If you want to establish the evolutive changes of this outstanding musician. please acquire this one."
