Secret Records releases a live John Mayall 180g LP recorded in the USA and Italy during a 1982 tour featuring a reformed Blues-breakers group. 

Anyone who knows their British blues will undoubtedly hold John Mayall in a special light. As a man who not only made his name from playing, mastering and popularising the style but also in ushering a new generation of blues players, there is little within British blues that he has not contributed towards. From his early days forming the formidable Blues-breakers, a select group of blues-musos that saw Peter Green, Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor pass through the ranks, to his later more fusion flavoured groups - Mayall is a true cornerstone of British music.

‘Howlin’ At The Moon’ gives a live snapshot into John Mayall’s 1982 tours through the USA and Italy that saw him reform the Blues-breakers specifically with Mick Taylor on guitar and another famous alumni - John McVie of Fleetwood Mac on bass (only for the USA recordings). From a song-writing viewpoint, ‘Howlin’ At The Moon’ clearly demonstrates the variety of Mayall’s ability not only a writer but also as a bandleader able to harness some of the finest playing from his all-star group.

‘Emergency Boogie’ highlights Mayall’s own playing prowess on piano and harmonica with Taylor providing some fierce slide guitar to back it up. On slow blues jams ‘Rolling With The Blues’, ‘Sitting Here Alone’ and ‘Howlin’ Moon’, we are treated to extended solos from Taylor on guitar and Mayall on piano/harmonica, using the band dynamic to ascend to thrilling climaxes throughout. John McVie and drummer Colin Allen provide a rock solid rhythm foundation as the perfect back-drop for the masterful lead playing. ‘Room To Move’ begins with a jazz fusion flavoured jam with Mayall scatting rhythms with his mouth that are matched by Allen, swiftly moving onto a traditional blues boogie. Rounding off the LP is a rollicking rendition of ‘The Stumble’, executed with a powerful energy and groove from the whole band to leave a lasting impression.

Enjoy ‘Howlin’ At the Moon’ as a raw and thrilling look at one of the finest British blues masters doing what he does best alongside a supremely talented group of musicians.
