Pressed On 180g White Vinyl From Pristine U.K. Mono Masters!
1967s A Hard Road proved to be every bit as powerful and innovative as its predecessor, thanks in large part to Mayalls discovery of Claptons equally brilliant replacement, Peter Green. A one-of-a-kind player with a highly distinctive sound, Green makes his instrumental presence felt throughout A Hard Road, while delivering compelling lead vocals on You Dont Love Me and The Same Way. With sterling support from bassist John McVie and drummer Aynsley Dunbar, the material here features such Mayall originals as Hit the Highway, Leaping Christine and the title track, along with standout interpretations of tunes by Freddie King, Elmore James and Willie Cobbs. The legendarily haunting Green-penned instrumental The Supernatural previews the guitarists groundbreaking work with the original incarnation of Fleetwood Mac, which he and fellow Bluesbreaker John McVie would form a few months later.
Following the seismic eruption that was the initial Bluesbreakers LP, John Mayall came back strong in '67 with another explosive album. Featuring guitar visionary and future Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green, this electrifying set sizzles with superb guitar tones and standout vocals from Green. With sterling support from bassist John McVie and drummer Aynsley Dunbar, Mayall and Green created an innovative, enduring album that ranks with their best work.
