Rating: B+

FCC: All good.

Info:  Blues Hall-of-Famer on keyboards and harp as well as vocals.  Guest Joe Walsh (Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer) plays guitar on tracks 3 and 5.  VintageVinylNews: “The amazing thing is that he doesn’t sound like a man whose first album was over 50 years ago and who has been, as they say, ‘through the mill.’   The songs on this album are powerful, evocative and steeped in the many forms of Blues that Mayall has been a part of. His vocals are gruff but clear and his piano and keyboards and harmonica are as good as they ever were.” Upbeat: 9, 10(horns). Mid: 1, 2, 4(horns), 5, 6, 8(horns), 11. Slower: 3, 7.     Cap’n Barney picks: 1,  3, 5, 6,  7, 9
