British Elder of the Blues

The Bear (1968)
Miss James (1968)
(from Blues from Laurel Canyon)

Today seems to be the day of the Brits on this hurried (and final) posting week of It's Magic! This was the second album John Mayall did (I believe) after the Bluesbreakers disbanded. It is my favorite Mayall album (even more than the Clapton one) and was a steal to pick up a near mint copy at a resell shop for a dollar. Besides the great Mayall, a young Mick Taylor is ripping up the guitar on the record, making this a must-hear for fans of his. There is a CD reissue available (domestic and import) that should definitely grace your collection. Enjoy.
