John Mayall--Crawling Up A Hill

I suppose no Blues blog would be complete without at least one post from the father of British Blues, John Mayall.  Mayall's legend is well known.  It seems that just about every famous British rocker played for his ensemble The Bluesbreakers at one point or another.  The more notable Bluesbreakers alumni include Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor (of the Rolling Stones), John McVie and Peter Green (of Fleetwood Mac).  Later in the 1980's Mayall broke guitar slingers Walter Trout and Coco Montoya on to the Blues scene. The list of discoveries and collaborators is virtually endless.

John Mayall and his music have transcended several decades and as far as I know he is still out there playing.

I really like this earlier toe-tapping, finger snapping tune called "Crawling Up A Hill."

I know that you feel the siren's call, so don't fight it.  Just buy it.  Click the link below.
