SUNDAY'S LONG PLAY

In the world of Progressive Rock, 1968 may well have been the greatest year of all. The diversity alone is astounding. "The Long Play with Al Neff" is a continuing Sunday Evening feature on The GOAT. Every Sunday Evening, Album Rock WXYG, The GOAT features a full album at 8:00 PM from the halcyon musical days of 1968. Next Sunday, August 19th, The GOAT’S Feature Album will be John Mayall’s, “Blues From Laurel Canyon”.

Blues From Laurel Canyon was John Mayall’s first solo album after the break up of the BluesBreakers.
John Mayall sings and plays harmonica, organ and guitar on the album. Other musicians include a young Mick Taylor (guitar), Colin Allen (drums) and Stephen Thompson (bass). The guitarist Peter Green is featured on the track First Time Alone. The engineer was Derek Varnals. All the songs on the album were written by Mayall.
The title of the album derives from Laurel Canyon, California, United States (in the Los Angeles area) where John Mayall subsequently lived from 1969 to 1979. It forms a record of his visit there before moving to the US on a more permanent basis. The area was favoured by many musicians at the time. It was recorded at Decca Studios in West Hampstead, London, England between 26 and 28 August 1968, and was released on the Decca label.

The album was innovative for its time, especially by the standards of blues recordings. The first track opens with a recording of a jet airliner landing, dissolving into the driving rhythm of the song. There were no visible track divisions on the vinyl album. Some songs fade or segue into the next track, others stop on a chord which is immediately followed by the introduction of the next track. Tabla drums are used, as is the technique of hitting guitar strings with a drumstick. The final track is a long song which moves into an extended lead guitar solo underscored by Mayall's Hammond organ, fading into a simple unaccompanied guitar figure which repeats until it too fades.

The lyrics are autobiographical and refer, if obliquely, to people Mayall met on his first visit, such as Frank Zappa and Moon Unit Zappa (on 2401), the band Canned Heat (on The Bear), and famous groupie, Catherine James (on Miss James).
Tune In and Turn On, Next Sunday evening, and every Sunday evening at 8:00 PM for The GOAT'S "The Long Play with Al Neff".
