One of the most influential bands in Classic Rock history, recorded by dedicated fan Tom Huissen who took his one-channel reel-to-reel tape recorder to five London clubs in 1967, these historical performances were unheard of for fifty years. Recently, Mayall obtained the tapes & began restoring them with technical assistance from Eric Corne of Forty Below Records. Corne adds, “While the source recording was very rough and the final result is certainly not hi-fidelity, it does succeed in allowing us to hear how spectacular these performances are.” Over a 2-year period, the band also featured Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor of The Rolling Stones.
