After gaining a fearsome reputation on the live circuit, Mayall signed a contract with Decca who realised the band he had, The Blues Breakers – Roger Dean on guitar, Hughie Flint on drums and John McVie on bass – were red hot and they needed to be captured live. Recorded on December 7 1964 – and reproduced here in glorious mono – at Klooks Kleek, above the Railway Hotel in West Hampstead, John Mayall Plays John Mayall was a fine debut, capturing the blues in front of an enthusiastic audience.



This re-issue faithfully replicates the original 1965 Decca Records UK mono release with gatefold sleeve and is pressed onto high quality 180g vinyl.
