UNIKAT - EGZEMPLARZ NUMEROWANY, KOLEKCJONERSKI
One of the Most Overall Influential Albums in Blues-Rock History
The Bluesbreakers, led by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist John Mayall, were formed in January 1963. Eric Clapton joined in 1965 just a few months after the release of their first album. It remains one of the key, seminal releases of the 1960s, and a highly influential record, as the sound of Clapton’s Les Paul through an overdriven Marshall stack provided inspiration to a whole generation of blues-based electric guitarists and groups. Clapton's incendiary playing inspired graffiti saying "Clapton is God" on the streets of London.
Much of the album is composed of blues standards by long-established blues artists such as Otis Rush, Freddie King and Robert Johnson, as well as a few originals penned by Mayall or Mayall and Clapton.
The majority of the songs serve as showcases for the 21 year old guitar virtuoso's playing, apart from "Another Man", "Ramblin' On My Mind", "Parchman Farm", and "What'd I Say". "Ramblin' On My Mind" was Clapton's very first recorded vocal performance.
