John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers: A Hard Road (London)

Metal Mike Saunders, Rolling Stone, 7 December 1968

This record has some great blues for blues freaks, whether you happen to prefer blues played by whites, blacks, or homosexual Chinese emigrants to the Arabian Desert – the music comes first, and it’s close to earthshaking here.
