Mick is among the finest.

"Ah, the glorious days of the warm tube amp!! This album has stood the test of time. I put it on the player just yesterday and it still sounds like it was done last week instead of the late 1960s.
For a baby faced 18 year old Mick Taylor plays some of the best blues guitar EVER and proves to be a slightly more technical & funkier player than Eric Clapton.His control of feedback is dynamic and alot like Peter Greens. Although Mayalls voice is a little shaky and offkey in places,the choice of songs is strong. The tracks featuring Micks instrumentals are the finest.
Together with the CD "A Hard Road" and the Clapton "Beano" album this provides as an essential addition to any seeking raw, energetic 60s blues guitar.
"Snowy River", "Driving Sideways" and Mick's sensational soloing on "My Time After Awhile" prove that he was a force to reckon with.
Today in 2006 Taylor is still one the most consistant guitarists around.
(Check out John Mayalls '70th Birthday/Anniversary' DVD to see what i mean)
