Double CD retrospective of John Mayall with extensive sleeve notes.. The seven concerts from which these recordings are taken span just 10 years (1972 to ‘82) in John Mayall’s 60 years-plus-and-still-going-strong career. Musically though, what you have here are brilliant performances which resonate with virtually all stages of his remarkable journey as band leader, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and blues crusader on both sides of the Atlantic. There is a 1982 Bluesbreakers reunion featuring Mick Taylor and John McVie and there are also jazz soloists from the lineup that produced what Melody Maker then regarded as John‘s finest album to date – 1972’s Jazz Blues Fusion. In effect, the music on these two CDs takes you anywhere from the Flamingo Club to Fillmores East and West.
