John Mayall: Blues
 From Laurel Canyon (Decca)

uncredited writer, Melody Maker, 30 November 1968

THIS IS John's least interesting album for a long time, and the reason is quite simple, and explained best in his own words on the elaborate sleeve: "The Blues-breakers were disbanded following my decision to work in more of a solo capacity with a small backing group."

Total word count of piece: 176
