REVIEW:

Los Angeles has always been a particular stop for every tour John Mayall included, this concert being no exception. This recording comes from two sources, source #1 was posted on IORR by ‘Dan’ - a big thanks to him and to the original taper! Source #2 is an incomplete recording (6 tracks) from an unidentified venue … and it turned out to be from the same show as the one posted by Dan! Due to the quality of this recording, it was decided to keep these tracks and complete them with Dan’s source; however Dan’s source had to be accelerated by 3,5%. A s usual, the transitions between tracks had been reworked and the beginning and end of each disc upgraded. This show is particularly interesting because of its unique tracklist and its many guest musicians; too bad it cuts out during Muddy Waters Blues which most probably wasn't the last song played on that evening. The recording has many guests notably Walter Trout on Dust Mt Blues, Get Me Some Dollars and Muddy Waters Blues; Buster Cooper on trombone and Red Holloway on sax play on Italiano Style, Checkin’ Up On My Baby and Streamline; all of them guest on Stormy Monday, while on Eli Stole My Baby the guests are Sugarcane Harris on violin as well as Buster Cooper and Red Holloway. The addition of brass adds a new dimension to songs like Checkin’ Up On My Baby. This recording is good but not excellent, on Disc One there is great channel separation but at times there is some echo, Taylor’s guitar can be heard well though; Disc Two is worse, sounding too muddy.


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
