Album Review

Fuelled by Coco Montoya's searing but economical string-slashing, drummer Joe Yuele, and bassist Rick Cortes, John Mayall has managed to keep a stable core of Bluesbreakers together in recent years. Mayall rarely does the same album twice, and Wake Up Call finds him returning to a basic, physical sound after 1990's more progressive/highly produced A Sense of Place. The harp whiz has rarely flirted with the pop charts over the decades, a track record that will likely handicap the title track - a potential hit featuring guest vocalist Mavis Staples and some take-charge riffing from former mate Mick Taylor. For pure guitar joy though, Montoya turns the trick all on his own with barnburners "Loaded Dice" and "Nature's Disappearing."

The Godfather

There are not many of the greats of British Rock that have not at some time played with this man but for many people he remains under the radar. This album should be in most music lovers collection. The opening track is everything a modern blues / rock track should be a driving bass & drum & understated vocals add the wonderful Mavis Staples into the mix on a couple of tracksto add some soul & you have a very very good album.

Superb!

I remember this was my very first John Mayall CD...I pretty much still love the guy and his music... A must have for Mayall's lovers!

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....
