The same address is on the second order as well. I have mine on order. If I wanted to order another for a friend do you have any spoares coming in Paul? Hi Pete.. Second copy would need to follow probably early next week. But if you want to put another order in, then by all means do that. Thank you, Paul. John is one of my favourite blues artists and I think people should pay more attention to his own abilities, not just the great musicians that passed through his bands to the classic names already listed you can add people like Walter Trout, Coco Montoya or Buddy Whittington, from the s onward.
Signed or not. CDs 31 and 34 are pretty damn short too. What is the average shipping cost for this to be sent to the US? Do you happen to know if the regular albums will become available separately later on?
The Polydor albums from the early 70s are hard to come by on cd and it would be nice to have them available again.
No idea. Madfish are box set specialists though so not sure if individual reissues is their thing. Great to see this done for old John. Looks like a winner.
Contact the store for more information. Possibly… please let me know where you are and I will check the shipping settings. Happy to adjust to accomodate. Just made my first SDE purchase.
With 5, sets being produced, and based on how sales of past Madfish box sets have gone, any thoughts on whether this might sell out in the near future?
Or do I have a good chance to get a set sometime in the future — say, a year from now — when the price might have dropped? None of them ever are. Thirty five CDs, and there are some missing tracks after all.
The collective SDE knowledge base does it again. I guess they never will now. Despite this I think it still looks a fabulous set. But the missing tracks are unfortunate. At least they could have done needledrops, so it was comprehensive and included all the officially released material. I am glad too see that this kind of sets are released by Madfish continously. This is the new release in a long series. Hopefully the promised caravan set Will be next, and after that please release The complete Roy Harper.
Best regards, Hans lindskog. A Roy Harper boxset with outtakes would indeed be a very special treat. Another magnificent set from Mad Fish. The problem with this sort of massive sets is that they are targeted to die-hard fans who will already own much of what is included.
Obviously it is still tempting for the fans, but they are supposed to spend a big sum for a series of unreleased rarities of dubious quality and a pile of memorabilia housed in an impossibly beautiful artifact. CD is a much humbler edition! I am not a die-hard of neither Steve Hillage nor Gentle Giant but i might be the exception to your rule because i bought both boxes after liking the records that i knew of both artists so far and finding that a good and not too expensive way to have almost all of said artists catalogue in one place.
For the same reason i also managed to find a new copy of the big Ian Hunter-box for an affordable price during the first lockdown.
JJDelmas has a point. Those of us who have collected physical media for decades are likely to already have copies of most of the material on a set like this, and that is even more true for those who have collected unofficial material via the internet or tape trading. For me, the sets that most appeal are those by artists whose work I enjoy but for one reason or another never got around to fully exploring; or those that feature exclusively or at least primarily rare material that was never released in a properly mastered form.
I suppose there is also now a generation of younger people who are coming late to the peculiar joys of collecting physical media, or who are only just discovering a taste for this vintage music. For those who are well off financially, I would imagine that purchasing a comprehensive set like this is an attractive option.
I saw him local,y a couple years back and he was great, not just for his age, but great, period. Well it IS called first generation and that was a release…. Born in Macclesfield , Cheshire in ,  Mayall was the son of Murray Mayall, a guitarist and jazz music enthusiast.
From an early age, John was drawn to the sounds of American blues players such as Lead Belly , Albert Ammons , Pinetop Smith and Eddie Lang , and taught himself to play the piano, guitars, and harmonica. Mayall spent three years in Korea for national service and, during a period of leave, he bought his first electric guitar. Back in England, he enrolled at Manchester College of Art now part of Manchester Metropolitan University and started playing with semi-professional bands.
In , he opted for a full-time musical career and moved to London. His previous craft would be put to good use in the designing of covers for many of his coming albums. Since the end of the s Mayall has lived in the US. A brush fire destroyed his house in Laurel Canyon in , seriously damaging his musical collections and archives.
Mayall has been married twice, and has six grandchildren. His second wife, Maggie Mayall, is an American blues performer, and since the early s took part in the management of her husband's career. The pair divorced in  and Maggie wrote online about the experience. In , with college fellow Peter Ward, Mayall had founded the Powerhouse Four which consisted of both men and other local musicians with whom they played at local dances.
In Mayall became a member of the Blues Syndicate. The band was formed by trumpeter John Rowlands and alto saxophonist Jack Massarik, who had seen the Alexis Korner band at a Manchester club and wanted to try a similar blend of jazz and blues.
Alexis Korner persuaded Mayall to opt for a full-time musical career and move to London, where Korner introduced him to many other musicians and helped them to find gigs. In late , with his band, which was now called the Bluesbreakers, Mayall started playing at the Marquee Club. The next spring Mayall obtained his first recording date with producer Ian Samwell. This line-up backed John Lee Hooker on his British tour in Mayall was offered a recording contract by Decca and, on 7 December , a live performance of the band was recorded at the Klooks Kleek.
A later studio-recorded single, "Crocodile Walk", was released along with the album, but both failed to achieve any success and the contract was terminated. In , with Eric Clapton as their new guitar player, the Bluesbreakers began attracting considerable attention.
In November Clapton returned, and Green departed as Mayall had guaranteed Clapton his spot back in the Bluesbreakers whenever he tired of the Glands. The rough recording provided tracks that later appeared on the compilation Looking Back and the Primal Solos. In a November session, blues pianist-singer Champion Jack Dupree originally from New Orleans but in the s living in Europe got Mayall and Clapton to play on a few tracks.
The sessions, with horn arrangements for some tracks John Almond on baritone sax, Alan Skidmore on tenor sax, and Dennis Healey on trumpet , lasted just three days.
Several of the 12 tracks were covers of pure Chicago blues side 1 kicking off strong with Otis Rush 's " All Your Love " and Freddy King 's hit instrumental " Hide Away " [here spelled without a space as "Hideaway"] ; Mayall wrote or arranged 5 such as "Double Crossing Time", a slow blues with a scorching solo by co-writer Clapton ; and Eric debuted as lead vocalist, and began his practice of paying tribute to Robert Johnson , with " Ramblin' on My Mind ". The album was Mayall's commercial breakthrough, rising to No.
In the meantime, on 11 June the formation of Cream —Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce , and drummer Ginger Baker —had been revealed in the music press, much to the embarrassment of Clapton, who had not said anything about this to Mayall.
After a May Bluesbreakers gig at which Baker had sat in, he and Clapton had first discussed forming their own band, and surreptitious rehearsal jams with Bruce soon commenced. Eric's last scheduled gig with the Bluesbreakers was 17 July in Bexley, south-east of London;  Cream made a warmup club debut 29 July in Manchester and its "official" live debut two days later at the Sixth National Jazz and Blues Festival, Windsor.
Mayall had to replace Clapton, and he succeeded in persuading Peter Green to come back. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. John Mayall discography Mayall performing in Retrieved 9 January Official Charts Company.
