John Mayall "So Many Roads: An Anthology 1964 - 1974" Released

Published // 18.Aug.10

John Mayall's earliest recordings with Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, Jack Bruce, Peter Green, Mick Taylor and John McVie from the sixties as well as Mayall's other recorded work through 1974 have been issued on the 4-CD box set "So Many Roads: An Anthology 1964-1974". The anthology collects tracks recorded during a period when Mayall released 10 albums each on Decca and Polydor. The 74 vintage tracks are newly digitally remastered from the original master tapes. The box set also features a 40-page booklet with liner notes and previously unpublished photographs.

The first two discs cover the Decca albums from 1964 to 1968: "Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton"; "A Hard Road" and "Crusade" featuring Peter Green; and "Bare Wires" and "Blues From Laurel Canyon" featuring Mick Taylor, plus tracks taken from non-album singles and EPs. The Decca period ranges from Mayall's first recordings, "Crawling Up A Hill" and "Mr. James," to gems with Clapton such as "All Your Love" and "Parchman Farm," to the quintessential Sixties flashback "Miss James." The third and fourth discs are devoted to Mayall's Polydor recordings from 1969 and 1974, when Mayall was essentially living and recording in America.
