Now here's something pretty ambitious. I've noticed there's a bit about Mayall on this forum, but beyond a recommendations page there's not really a bonafide go-to for this artist with a dense, formidable and incredibly patchy catalog. A bit of background: I became a fan of Mayall's work in the early 90's when I was 14-15 (yep, that's right) and I'm fairly certain that he was the first artist that I became totally obsessed with for a good year or so. This is all pretty strange because during this obsessive phase I still had pretty eclectic taste including then-current stuff like Pavement, Sonic Youth and The Smashing Pumpkins, whilst slowly absorbing older stuff like The Byrds and Dylan. Since those teenage halcyon days, interest in Mayall waned fairly rapidly, but recently (and we'll attribute this to encroaching middle age) I've been nostalgically revisiting Mayall's work in truckloads and thought it only appropriate to strike whilst the iron is hot. I'll state from the outset that I don't have anything of Mayall's output from 1997 onwards and I've scarcely heard any of it. Also, a majority of his stuff from the latter half of the 70's is incredibly hard to track down; save for a few youtube uploads here and there. It will probably be best to restrict this thread to official releases (including the Polydor jazz/blues fusion records from the early 70's), though I'm fairly certain things will get a bit inconsistent once we hit the late 70's/early 80's when the officialdom of releases is a bit harder to pin down. For the sake of the 1960's, I'll ensure I include the singles/EPs, as the lineup changed rapidly around this period. I'll get things rolling shortly, however if anyone else wants to take the lead later on, be my guest!
