More Info

Hailing from Macclesfield, Cheshire, and growing up in Cheadle Hulme, John Mayall had already made a name for himself on the Manchester blues scene before relocating to London in 1963 at the urging of Alexis Korner.

Eric Clapton joined from the Yardbirds, disenchanted with the pop direction that that group were taking, away from his beloved blues. As a result, Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton became a touchstone in the blues-rock scene of the mid 60s, from its iconic cover (a disinterested Clapton reading The Beano comic) onwards; it was an earnest homage to the music that so inspired the players, creating a heavy, warm brew; an unmistakably English take on an American form. It represented a chart breaking breakthrough, too – reaching No 6 in July 1966.
