For me, having grown up in the heady early days of the British Blues scene, a Mayall gig poster was always a reliable compass to a great evening. Although I never rated his musical ability that highly, other than his blues-harp virtuosity, his sheer organizational enthusiasm and understanding of blues leadership was impeccable throughout the '60s and early '70s. A period in which he formed his Bluesbreakers line-ups, each of which would help spawn future legends in the history of British blues-rock.

Mayall, like his mentor Alexis Korner, pushed the boundaries of the Chicago blues genre at a time when the technologies of the electric guitar were also becoming equally experimental. The result was a fusion of unique home-grown 'Rhythm n' Blues' with lyrics often firmly rooted in white British urban culture as much as those of re-worked black American material. Like ex-members of his band line-ups would help develop the Blues Rock genre and create the British 'Prog-rock' phenomena, his later works also brought jazz-fusions into the melting pot . His time in L.A. (shared with Frank Zappa at Laurel Canyon in '69) further mined new directions and his later first American release "USA Union" featured FZ-associated electric violinist Sugarcane Harris.

Whilst Alexis Korner is most certainly a founding father of British Blues, Mayall is one of the key figures and catalysts in the nurturing of its renowned offspring and a cornerstone in British blues legend.
