Someone mentioned recently that John Mayall was in Park City a few weeks ago and I said I had always wanted to see him, but had not heard about the recent concert. I was listening to some of his old stuff and remembered that I had in fact heard him at the old Terrace Ballroom years ago (I looked up the date - 9/26/1972).
At that time, he was moving away from his traditional blues and was doing a lot of a (then) new form called Jazz Blues Fusion. I was so blown away by his guitar player, Freddie Robinson, that I forgot all about Mayall. I have lots of subsequent Freddie Robinson albums.
Here’s a sample - this album was recorded live in late 1971, by the same personnel I saw in 1972 - it’s ALL GREAT stuff!
