Catch That Train (2:20)

Cover of The Blues Alone

From The Blues Alone and 3 other releases

For anyone who enjoys blues harmonica, this a a ‘young’ John Mayall accompanying a live recording of a steam train leaving Central station, on his harmonica, on the album ‘Blues Alone’, so-called because, as an instrumentalist, John basically plays everything on the album apart from a bit of assistance on drums (try to ignore the hairstyle on the album cover, but check out the guitar). John Mayall is the doyen of British blues and first started coming to fame in the late 1960s. His Bluesbreakers band nurtured many of the UK’s top blues guitarists including Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor and, of course, John Mayall himself. He is still around and continues to play with great aplomb. For his earlier stuff, check out ‘Laural Canyon Blues’, a story-telling album of his first experiences in 1960s/1970s America.
