John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers – A Hard Road (1967)

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers - A Hard Road (1967)

 

Great-Britain-180-animated-flag-gifsRelease Date: February 17, 1967
Genre: Blues Rock, Harmonica Blues, Electric Blues, Southern Rock
Label:London / PolyGram
UK (London)

 

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

It’s the third album (and second studio album) recorded by John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. Eric Clapton is usually thought of as John Mayall’s most important right-hand man, but the case could also be made for his successor, Peter Green. The future Fleetwood Mac founder leaves a strong stamp on his only album with the Bluesbreakers.Mayall acquits himself fairly well on this mostly original set (with occasional guest horns), though some of the material is fairly mundane. Highlights include the uncharacteristically rambunctious « Leaping Christine » and the cover of Freddie King’s « Someday After a While (You’ll Be Sorry).The cover art and the original LP sleeve design are by Mayall.

Line up:

John Mayall: vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano, organ
Peter Green: guitar, vocals
John McVie: bass
Hughie Flint, Aynsley Dunbar: drums
John Almond, Alan Skidmore: saxophones
Ray Warleigh: wind instruments

This album is an inspired collection of songs born out of living and traveling through America by train. He was drawn to music at an early age. As part of a long lineage of musicians and farmers – of healers and teachers – his perspective enables him to create songs from moments in life while embracing his grassroots connections through music. This album will be a great addition to any music collection. The songs are all original; the tones are stout, and the delivery is authentic and inspired. The songs are blues-based, yet diverse. They echo the American landscape and its people.

Genre: Chicago Blues, Harmonica Blues
Label: Verve
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

 

Deep in the Blues is a fascinating jam session running a number of classic blues songs written by Muddy Waters, Percy Mayfield, and Sonny Boy Williamson and a few originals by Walker and Cotton. The sound is intimate and raw, which is a welcome change from Cotton’s usual overproduced records.This record was made in 1996 just after James had surgery for throat cancer and was one of the last albums he sang on before giving up singing to concentrate just on playing harp. His vocals do sound a bit rough on some tracks but it’s not a deal breaker and his harp playing is still fabulous – with a foot in both the country and the Chicago camps.

Howlin’ Bill travels the Blues Highway, but also dares to wander of the beaten path to explore little know back roads, visiting different styles of Rhythm ‘N’ Roots along his journey, at times even adding Rock ‘N’ Roll and Rockabilly to the recipe. Howlin’ Bill worked hard to achieve his musical goals.It’s not easy to pin down a band like Howlin’ Bill in a few words it would not do them justice. They mainly perform original songs, with occasionally some carefully chosen covers thrown in the mix for good measure. The Howlin’ Bill recipe is a blend of Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Boogie and Rockabilly.

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band – The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (1965)

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band - The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (1965)

 

USA FlagOriginal Release Date: 1965
Reissued Release Date: October 7, 2014

Label: Audio Fidelity

Even after his death, Paul Butterfield’s music didn’t receive the accolades that were so deserved. Outputting styles adopted from Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters among other blues greats, Butterfield became one of the first white singers to rekindle blues music through the course of the mid-’60s. His debut album, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, saw him teaming up with guitarists Elvin Bishop and Mike Bloomfield, with Jerome Arnold on bass, Sam Lay on drums, and Mark Naftalin playing organ. The result was a wonderfully messy and boisterous display of American-styled blues, with intensity and pure passion derived from every bent note. In front of all these instruments is Butterfield’s harmonica, beautifully dictating a mood and a genuine feel that is no longer existent, even in today’s blues music. Each song captures the essence of Chicago blues in a different way, from the back-alley feel of « Born in Chicago » to the melting ease of Willie Dixon’s « Mellow Down Easy » to the authentic devotion that emanates from Bishop and Butterfield’s « Our Love Is Drifting. » « Shake Your Money Maker, » « Blues With a Feeling, » and « I Got My Mojo Working » (with Lay on vocals) are all equally moving pieces performed with a raw adoration for blues music. Best of all, the music that pours from this album is unfiltered…blared, clamored, and let loose, like blues music is supposed to be released. A year later, 1966’s East West carried on with the same type of brash blues sound partnered with a jazzier feel, giving greater to attention to Bishop’s and Bloomfield’s instrumental talents.
