After Eric Clapton’s hasty departure in the summer of 1966, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers responded by landing themselves yet another young guitar god in Peter Green. The reverb-soaked A Hard Road totally reflects the newbie’s legendarily moody disposition and existential approach to the blues. Where his predecessor’s playing was muscular and forceful, Green’s is spare and deeply forlorn. On the eccentrically hypnotic cuts “There’s Always Work” and “The Supernatural,” he also pushes Mayall and crew to explore the outer limits of blues tradition.

It will make you sweat!

This is an amazing album especially the one with the 22 extra songs on it! I would highly recommend it to any blues fan.

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....
