John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and Friends: 70th Birthday Concert [DVD/CD [DVD] [2003]

John Mayall is arguably the most important figure in the history of the British blues; when homegrown blues was still establishing itself in the United Kingdom, Mayall was the first successful bandleader and songwriter to emerge on the scene, and Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Jack Bruce, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie were just a few of the literally dozens of musicians who got their first break playing with Mayall's group The Bluesbreakers. In the summer of 2003, Mayall celebrated his seventieth birthday by doing what he loves best, playing the blues for an enthusiastic audience, and John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and Friends: 70th Birthday Concert is a concert film which captures Mayall tearing it up with some help from his band and a few special guests (among them former bandmates Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor). Selections include "Walking On Sunset", "Blues For The Lost Days", "Talk To Your Daughter", "Please Mr. Lofton", and many more.
