JOHN MAYALL’S BLUESBREAKERS LIVE IN 1967 – ALBUM RELEASED 20TH APRIL 2015

John Mayall’s Bluebreakers – Live in 1967, an ultra rare collection of, never-before-heard, live recordings featuring John Mayall, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, will be released on 20th April, on Forty Below Records.

Live in '67 Low Res Cover copyIn 1967, before there was a Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood were John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.  The four musicians were only together for three months, which makes it even more remarkable that a staunch fan from Holland was able to sneak a one channel reel-to-reel tape recorder into five London clubs and capture this exciting glimpse into musical history.

For almost fifty years these tapes have remained unheard until Mayall recently got them and began restoring them with the technical assistance of Eric Corne of Forty Below Records.  Corne adds “While the source recording was very rough and the final result is certainly not hi-fidelity, it does succeed in allowing us to hear how spectacular these performances are.”

The significant discovery of these live recordings will surely thrill Mayall fans around the world but, moreover, it has enabled the creation of an historical document, which captures a very special moment in the evolution of British Blues music.
