ESTE É O GRANDE MESTRE BRANCO DO BLUES/JAZZ. NÃO É UM DISCO TÃO RARO, MAS A SONORIDADE SURPREENDE. MUITA FLAUTA, SAX E HARMÔNICA NUMA MISTURA PERFEITA DE BLUES/JAZZ. BELÍSSIMO DISCO!
Recorded just after Mick Taylor departed for the Stones, John Mayall eliminated drums entirely on this live recording. With mostly acoustic guitars and John Almond on flutes and sax, Mayall and his band, as his typically overblown liner notes state, "explore seldom-used areas within the framework of low volume music." But it does work. The all-original material is flowing and melodic, with long jazzy grooves that don't lose sight of their bluesy underpinnings. Lyrically, Mayall stretches out a bit into social comment on "The Laws Must Change" on this fine, meditative mood album.
