    I sure wouldn't call The Turning Point an example of "going downhill." It was a far-reaching development in popular music at the time.

    As soon as he was born. Abbreviations like "Macca" are standard practice in the U. K.

    Phenomenal record and incredibly imaginative

    In many ways, and for many reasons, this is my favorite Mayall album (but with Hard Road a close second)...

    Thank you for posting this - it made fascinating reading. :righton: I just got another Mayall album the other day (Blues From Laurel Canyon - original WG Deram CD) and many more are sure to soon follow... Anything JM that's out there and not too difficult to find, needs to be in my collection.

    Did we miss my favourite? I got introduced to it while I was at Wolverhampton Technical College around the time it came out.

  9. I didn't mean to say that you said "Turning Point" was on Decca, but you said everything after the Decca period was going downhill, and I merely stated my opinion that I disagree with that statement, using the milestone and critically acclaimed album "Turning Point" as an example. It was a rhetorical question, I suppose, since we all know that it wasn't on Decca. No bad intentions on my side. :thumbsup:

    Yeah, no bad feeling. Just wanted to clarify. I see you like Grant Green. Now he was 100% all the way:thumbsup:

    Some mention should be made of his early 7" ep done with Paul Butterfield circa 1967.

    I can at least put an image up, apologies for the poor condition of the cover.

    I think one of the songs was on that really good anthology a few years back

  18. Dang, I didn't realize the remasters from the 2000's had so many interesting bonus tracks. I already have all these albums on CD (the old Deram WG releases, and the Sundazed mono reissues), but I just had to order some of them for the bonus tracks.

    Who mastered the releases from 2006/2007? Was it perhaps Paschal Byrne? I often think his work is pretty good, definitely prefer his masterings over other Universal mastering engineers like Suha Gur.

    The first expanded 2-cd release from 2003 had 36 (!) tracks ("Blues Masters, Remastered & Revisited" series). Suha Gur mastered this one.

  20. I just found out the 2006/2007 remasters are indeed done by Paschal Byrne.

    This is the first Mayall album I ever heard..
    It's just one of over thirty in my collection, but it's among my top three favorites.

    I think the sequence got a bit messed up :)

    :D I was thinking something similar, the other day. More an appreciation thread now...

    How about you post A Hard Road and your thoughts on it, maybe we can then return to chronological order?
