JOHN MAYALL's BLUESBREAKERS
WHAT's NEW
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

What's new on this web page?

If you see the date changing on this page, without an announcement in this section, it is probably something like fixing minor coding problems, spelling errors, minor layout changes, new page on this site (so I changed bottom index), ... Any major changes to this page, will be announced here.

November 1, 2010. John Mayall in concert at Leicester Square Theatre, London will be streamed on the internet. You will need to pay for your ticket to watch this event. It looks like you will be able to watch the instant replay if you miss the initial web stream.

May 4, 2010. I finally picked up my copy of John Mayall - The Private Collection. This two CD set includes various live songs from between 1972 to 1982. This period has some of his more jazzier music as well as the Bluesbreakers reunion.

December 18, 2008. I finally picked up my copy of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers - Live at the BBC. This contains a nice selection of live songs from 1965 - 1967 and a couple from 1975. This is a nice addation to any John Mayall collection as there are tracks not found on any other releases, as well as live versions from various of the early line ups.

August 31, 2008. You can now listen to streaming free music from this band as well as others at Wolfgangs Vault.

January 29, 2007. Essentially John Mayall a specially priced 5CD box set of recent John Mayall recordings, also includes a CD of live tracks recorded from 1966 thorugh 1994.

December 19, 2006. Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton has been released as a 2 CD set. The second CD has some of the 45s as well as some of the BBC radio performances that also featured Eric Clapton.

July 18, 2005. I just noticed that the ezBoard message board that I had set up for this web site had been deleted. Since restoration of the deleted conference is only available to subscribers to their service, and since the activity was relatively light, I not planning on looking for another message board. If you do think a message board is worth while, or you have a message board that you like, let me know and I may promote it here. As always you can contact me here.

Eric Clapton joins John Mayall for one live show, July 19, 2003
April 10, 2004. Some of the original Bluesbreakers CD are being reissued with bonus tracks. I just picked up A Hard Road 2 CD set with 22 bonus tracks. This looks like most the studio tracks that Peter Green recorded with John Mayall. It includes all the 45s, EPs and otherwise obscure studio recordings.

May 29, 2001. Yahoo! News John Mayall Gathers Bluesbreaker Alumni. News story on new John Mayall album on which he reunites with many of the old players, and manages to connect up with people he hasn't played with before.

March 10, 2001. It looks like I may have been premature in moving to a new web hosting site. I just found out that whenever Tripod.com is having hardware or software problems with their servers, they put up a message for the webmaster that their site is in violation of terms, and the web site has been deleted (instead of a message about system problems and try again later). Anyway, I believed Tripod.com when they said they deleted my account, so I will be moving, and making chromeoxide.com my new home on the web.

March 10, 2001. As long as I am moving my entire site, I decided to make a few changes to the layout of the individual pages, and the web site in general, including (but not limited to) I removed the counter, and moved the listings of mirror sites to the bottom of the page, ...

March 6, 2001. Sometime between March 1 to March 5, 2001 Tripod deleted my account/web site. The last stats Tripod gave me were 9,000+ visitors per month. Since my site is so popular, I have decided to keep it going, in spite of this major setback. But rather than trying to build up another free web site, and possibly deal with this problem again, I decided go with CommandLine.net to host the new chromeoxide.com.

October 31, 2000. The new Chrome Oxide Music Collectors Pages Message Board is provided by EZBoard.

October 31, 2000. Since Marc Skobac and DeltaNick sent in information at about the same time on live shows and BBC appearances, I decided to fill in the rest of the Mayall/Clapton shows from the Eric Clapton Tourography

October 28, 2000. Once again, Marc Skobac has helped out this site (and music fans) by forwarding his sessionography of the Bluesbreakers. His work is greatly appreciated. Thank you Marc.

October 28, 2000. Once again, DeltaNick has helped out this site (and music fans) by forwarding copies of John Mayall radio programme logs from the BBC archives. Thank you DeltaNick.

October 31, 1999. There used to be a complete listing of all the bands featured on this site at the bottom of each page on this site. The complete band list has now been moved to the Site Map.

Back in June 1997 when I started this site, the index at the bottom of the page seemed like a good idea. Due to the amazing growth of this site, I now think that the Site Map is a better way to do it.

I will continue to list the featured band of the month at the bottom of each page on this site.

December 3, 2002 CD Now is undergoing changes, and asked that ALL links be removed.
October 28, 1999 I signed up with CD Now.

October 22, 1999. The Chrome Oxide Music Collector Pages web site hit the big time! And I didn't even know it.

Tripod stats showed that this web site had more than 4,000 unique visitors last month (September 1999). Because of that, Tripod has increased my web space from 11mb to 50mb.

May 21, 1999. On the advice of legal counsel, we have now added a copyright notice, and legal disclaimer to the bottom of each page on this web site.

While I don't have any details yet, I have noticed that there are a couple of John Mayall live CDs from the period just after Mick Taylor left the band.

May 2, 1999. I just received the "Beano's Boys" CD which is a compilation of BBC live performances and the 1968 Bremen, Germany show.

March 31, 1999. I started a new section on this page, Classifieds. Now, if someone is interesed in putting an ad here, or I find something I think is worthwhile, there is a place for it.

March 16, 1999. Thanks to a recent visitor to this page, we now have a logo for the Chrome Oxide Music Collectors Pages, as well as a new background and seperator bars. There may be additional changes to look forward to as well.

October 27, 1998 I just received additional information (correct band member listing, and partial song listing) on the June 27, 1970 Bath Festival show.

Starting in July ??, 1998 Making Time British Beat Groups of the 1960s will post a review I wrote for the Looking Back CD, and have a link to my pages. Thanks.

JOHN MAYALL's BLUESBREAKERS
INTRO
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

GRAPHIC IMAGE 'John Mayall - photo'

John Mayall's Bluesbreakers started out in the late 1950s in England. This was/is a band that used American style blues as a starting basis for their sound. The sound has changed from album to album. And while at one point John Mayall was playing a fairly jazzy sound, he has eventually come back to the blues.

One of the interesting features of the Bluesbreakers, is that the personnel changed on a very regular basis, and many members have gone on to much well deserved fame and fotrune with other bands and as solo acts.

Past members have included: Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Peter Green, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Mick Taylor, ...

John Mayall seems to have been very careful in keeping track everything that he ever recorded. Most every album has an exact recording date and location. And when crosschecked against the Peter Green book, they agree exactly.

However, when cross checked against the Eric Clapton books they don't. But I have already found other inconsistancies with the Eric Clapton books on the Yardbirds stuff, so if I had any doubts, I used any source before the Eric Clapton books.

I have not found any books covering the Mick Taylor years. I would appreciate hearing from anyone that has any additional information from that period.

Until then, this will have to do.

For deciding who was in which version of the band, I have gone with Peter Frame's Rock Family Trees. Most of the other books and records seem to agree with his research. His book is a *MUST* own for any fan of 1960's/1970's. Buy it! It is back in print again, and there is no telling how long that condition will last.

Comments and corrections would be appreciated.

And of course, any audio-video-print additions to my collection would be appreciated.

I am also interested in getting wider exposure for this site. So links from your site to mine would be appreciated. And if you know of any sites that allow/encourage submission, I would also appreciate knowing about them as well.

Do you have any articles, books, albums, tapes, CDs, ... on this band that you would like reviewed and / or integrated into this page?

Do you have any other band that you would like to see a page for on this site?

4 Million Hard to Find CDs & LPs at MusicStack
December 10, 2002.
Back in October 1999 I put up links to CD-Now so that visitors could easily link to the related band pages and instantly see which items were still in print/available for purchase. CD-Now no longer has that option. For the moment I am putting in Amazon.com search boxes. Amazon.com doesn't easily allow for links to individual band pages in the same way that CD-Now used to. So, instead of me being able to create direct links, I have put up the Amazon.com search box instead. So you can still go to a page with the various bands products, buy you now need to go through a search box.

As always, let me know what you think.
