One of the best of Mayall version 2

"As a Mayall fan of the original albums, I added John Mayall's albums back into the fold after 'Sense of Place' and I have every one since. 'Wake up call' is memorable for many reasons not the least for the guitar of Coco Montoya and Mick Taylor. The stand out tracks include 'Nature Disappearing' a rework of an earlier Mayall track which features the magical playing of Coco Montoya and 'Not at home' a great song featuring Mick Taylor. Also check out the live album 'Life in the jungle' as possibly the best Mayall album."
Best blues album ever made!

"I believe John Mayall's "Wake up call" (1993) is the best blues album I have ever heard. Compared to his "Blues for the lost days" (1997) or "Padlock on the blues" (1999), this album is superior in every way. The songs are quite unique and there's plenty of variation even it is blues all the way. Ever since Mayall released "Wake up call", he has gradually got worse and what used to be something thrilling have become just boring and not above mediocre standard at all. The follow up "Spinning coin" (1995) includes a couple of good songs like "When the devil starts crying" and "Ain't no brakeman", but on more recent releases you won't find any songs of the same calibre as "Mail order mystics", "Maydell", "Wake up call", "Undercover agent for the blues" or "Loaded dice". John Mayall's "Wake up call" is in some way comparable to Gary Moore's "Still got the blues", and if you like that one, I'm almost certain you'll like this one."
One of the best Mayall collections ever.

"While not actually a 'blues' album, the roots are not far away. What makes this album special is the versatility of both Mayall and his sidemen. Montoya shines as does Mick Taylor. All the songs are enjoyable, very listenable without being too commercial.
