|John Mayall's Bluesbreakers Live In 1967 Volume 2 Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
Here is the follow up to last year’s Volume One of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers “Live In 1967”, featuring Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood before they became Fleetwood Mac. Volume 2 showcases three John Mayall originals including the opening track, all-time blues classic “Tears In My Eyes”; “Chicago Line”, complete with John McVie bass solo; and “Please Don’t Tell”, a great example of the power blues The Bluesbreakers were revered for. Thanks to dedicated fan Tom Huissen who took his one channel reel-to-reel tape recorder into various London clubs in 1967, these historical performances were captured for all time. Unheard for almost fifty years, John recently obtained these tapes and began restoring them with the technical assistance of Eric Corne of Forty Below Records. Corne adds, “While the source recording was very rough and the final result is certainly not hi-fidelity, it does succeed in allowing us to hear how spectacular these performances are.” It’s truly an exciting glimpse into music history.
