John Mayall
A Special Life

John Mayall - A Special Life

As 2013 came to a close and with his 80th birthday mere weeks away, the godfather of British blues quietly entered a North Hollywood Studio with his band, special guest C.J. Chenier and co-producer/engineer Eric Corne. He walked out with one of the finest and most personal records of his career, A Special Life.

Along with his accomplished band (Greg Rzab, Jay Davenport and Rocky Athas) Mayall goes back to his roots with an eclectic album centered in the blues but with diversions into rock and Americana.

This is John's first studio album in five years. It is an instant classic and a must have for any blues/roots music enthusiast.
