John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers: Live in 1967 – Volume Two
Available Worldwide on Friday 6th May 20

Following the huge critical and commercial success of 2015’s John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers ‘Live in 1967’, Forty Below Records is pleased to announce the release of a second volume of live material from the legendary short-lived Bluesbreakers line-up of John Mayall (vocals, keyboards, harmonica), Peter Green (lead guitar), John McVie (bass) and Mick Fleetwood (drums).

Volume Two showcases three John Mayall self-penned tracks; the opening song, all-time blues classic ‘Tears in My Eyes’, ‘Chicago Line’,featuring a John McVie bass solo and ‘Please Don’t Tell’, which is a great example of the power-blues that The Bluesbreakerswere renowned for.

“I am so happy that the remaining usable tracks from these London club dates have been released as a follow-up to the well received Volume One. Peter Green, as before, is on fire throughout and this set includes a great instrumental based on his composition ‘Greeny’. There area couple of Otis Rush tracks that were included on the first volume but they are from different venues and totally different. I couldn’t possibly let these slide. Also, there is another version of T-Bone Walker’s’Stormy Monday’ that is sung by American Serviceman Ronnie Jones, who was lead singer with a British soul band and, who would frequently sit in at our gigs. John McVie gets in a great bass solo on ‘Chicago Line’ and Mick Fleetwood drives the whole set with his unique and powerful drumming. With these new tracks added to the collection, it pretty much features all the material we had in our repertoire at that time and I’m very glad that you can now enjoy this great piece of rock/blues history”.
