Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: John Mayall (vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano, organ); Peter Green (vocals, guitar, harmonica); John McVie (bass); Mick Fleetwood, Aynsley Dunbar (drums); Paul Butterfield.
  • Producers: Mike Vernon, John Mayall.
  • Compilation producer: Bill Levenson.
  • Recorded between 1966 & 1968. Includes liner notes by John Mayall, Scott Schinder.
  • This is part of Universal's "Blues Classics" series.
  • Following Eric Clapton's departure after the magnificent Bluesbreakers album, Mayall plugged the gap with Peter Green. Little did anyone know (except Green) that he would almost equal Clapton in the minds of fans and the cogniscenti. Two instrumentals on this collection, Freddie King's "The Stumble" and Green's "The Super-Natural", clearly demonstrate the clean sound of his Gibson Les Paul. The line-up is completed by bassist John McVie and Aynsley Dunbar on drums. Ex-commercial artist Mayall also designed and painted the cover, which itself is a fine piece of art-work and is probably rotting in some printer's basement, long forgotten. The remastered CD reissue is quite superb.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/7/68, p.28) - "...the best album ever put out by a white blues band....[Mayall's] singing is excellent....If there is a quality that really distinguishes this record, it's the presence of piano...it adds a rustic, very country blues-ish flavor to the songs..."

Living Blues (p.67) - "A HARD ROAD consisted of mostly original material, Green's guitar tone more piercing and distorted than Clapton's, lending an emotional grit to tracks like the horn-laced 'Another Kinda Love.'"
