The Bluesbreakers' reputation as an academy of excellence for aspiring young blues guitarists overlooks one pertinent fact: that without John Mayall to stubbornly, and steadfastly, lead the group, it wouldn't have mattered who played guitar, whether it was John Williams, Segovia, or God. They'd have been just another blues band from the wrong side of the Surrey delta. Instead, they became the principle legend of the blue British '60s, and this collection of three of the band's countless BBC sessions, plus a 1968 German broadcast, offers up a few good reasons why. Most of the usual suspects star, but it's not the axeman histrionics which blind so much as the way those histrionics never eclipse the brilliance of the rest of the band.
