Hailing from Macclesfield, Cheshire, and growing up in Cheadle Hulme, John Mayall had already made a name for himself on the Manchester blues scene before relocating to London in 1963 at the urging of Alexis Korner.
Following the breakup of The Bluesbreakers in 1968, Mayall took a three-week break in L.A., and it proved an eye-opener for him.
As a result, Blues from Laurel Canyon was a concept album of sorts, a view of a Brit abroad at a time when it wasn't de rigueur to travel.
"2401" especially is an incredible confection acknowledging Cream, foreseeing Led Zeppelin; Mick Taylor's slide guitar would soon be heard in the Rolling Stones.
"Fly Tomorrow" is a nine-minute blues-rock tour de force.
