Showing no signs of going away quietly, John Mayall, approaching his eighty-first birthday, returns with a splendid album featuring a mix of original tunes and covers of songs by Albert King, Eddie Taylor, and Clifton Chenier. On his first release of new recordings in five years Mayall sounds relaxed and in control from the outset. Backed by a solid band featuring Rocky Athas on guitar, Greg Rzab on bass, and Jay Davenport on drums, Mayall sets the pace revealing that he hasn’t lost any of his formidable skills.
