Early Unplugged

This an unusual Mayall album. A largely acoustic line-up is given plenty of room within the musical arrangements to express their abilities and improvisational skills. With Mayall's often banal lyrics kept to a minimum the effect is of a tight unit enjoying and rising to the challenge of the absence of a drummer. All soloists are given extended opportunities whch they make the most of, with Mayall himself showing well on electric guitar and harp. The line-up gels very well producing an enjoyable album. Recommended.

Quintessential ambrosia!!!

Very few albums come along that resonate so eloquently as Turning Point. It's one of those little English Secrets that, once you know the secret, feel so privileged to have tucked away in your collection! This is one of the finest blues souds that England has produced over the last forty years. Take the time to treat yourself to some of this because you will never regret immersing yourself into something as unique and 'never to be matched' again. Rarely, so very rarely does music of this calibre come along. Take it with both hands...music this good is worth fifty times the price....it will be the best 8 quid you'll spend for 20 years!! Just select the mates of yours that really deserve this nectar carefully...it's so good!!! Ant

Throughout the '60s, his band, the Bluesbreakers, acted as a finishing school for the leading British blues-rock musicians of the era. Guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor joined his band in a remarkable succession in the mid-'60s, honing their chops with Mayall before going on to join Cream, Fleetwood Mac, and the Rolling Stones, respectively....
