John Mayall - Live From Austin, TX [DVD]
You don't exactly have to be a rock & roll historian to know that the 60's rock sound that revolutionized popular music got much of its raunch, rawness and soulful edge from the neglected masters of America blues. What many of today's rockers may have forgotten, however, is that Manchester-born singer-keyboardist John Mayall was one of the leaders of that revolution. After four decades, he's still called the Father of British Blues for good reason. His band The Bluesbreakers provided fertile ground for the likes of Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, John McVie, and Jack Bruce, among other alumni. Over an incredibly short four years, these Brits and their American counterparts took the essence of traditional blues and transformed it into the foundation of much of modern rock.
