John Mayall's Bluesbreakers
Live At Iowa State UniversityStreaming Video - 2013
Filmed at Iowa State University in 1987, this program features John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, including Walter Trout and Coco Montoya on guitar, Paul Hines on drums, and Bobby Haynes on bass. John Mayall is widely recognized as the father of British blues, having baptized a whole generation of British musicians - and an audience that might otherwise never have discovered the blues. Apart from having discovered - in Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor - three of the most acclaimed guitarists of the rock era, his "blues school" fostered the talents of a roster of artists who have since profoundly influenced the course of rock 'n' roll history. Mayall's 1984 incarnation of the Bluesbreakers included innovative future stars like guitarists Coco Montoya and Walter Trout. This film brilliantly documents these luminaries in their prime.
