So did anybody buy the download with the Mayall/Greeny show?
It seems all traces of it are gone from the webstore now. As expected.

He has a band called John the Revelator, which was inspired by early Fleetwood Mac and formed in the late '60s.

As some of you already know - it's been discussed here on the Ledge - Tom recorded five Bluesbreakers shows during the first half of 1967. He has just sent out word that he will be releasing them one at a time. The first show to be released is from the Marquee in London, from 27 April 1967. I've copied the information he sent about the show and about obtaining it as a bonus for ordering the latest John the Revelator CD - see the info below.

I think pretty much everyone I've run across here on the Ledge is in agreement that we should not copy or trade recordings that are currently available, only bootlegs and out of print music - I think it's worth keeping this in mind here since Tom is now making these rare recordings available. I have no commercial interest in any of this, just passing along the information I've received to everyone here.

This looks like some exciting news - here's the information sent by Tom:

In the past you showed interest in the Peter Green tapes I made in 1967.
I got good news for you.
The time has come that all the Peter Green fans in the world can enjoy the tapes.

I don't want it to be a commercial project.
So the tapes are only for personal use and not for commercial use.
I will release the tapes step by step.
I will start with the Marquee tapes (04-27-1967).

Marquee 27-04-1967
1. Talk to your daughter (Lenoir) 2:59
2. Tears in my eyes (Mayall) 7:30
3. Streamline (Mayall) 4:00
4. The Stumble (F.King) 6:43
5. So many roads (Paul) 8:18
6. Riding on the L&N (Hampton/Burley) 2:21
7. Chicago line (Mayall) 6:53
8. Your funeral my trial (Williamson) 5:21
9. Four million nobs (Green) 6:36
10. Double trouble (Rush) 6:37
Total time: 57:18

On our website www.johntherevelator.nl you find more information on the tapes (as you are well aware).

I will use the infrastructure of my band to make the tapes available for all the fans.
http://johntherevelator.bandcamp.com/

From Wednesday the 21st of September the Marquee tapes are available in the following fashion:
- fans who buy the latest album ‘ Underway’ of John the Revelator, the physical digipack, get an immediate free download not only of the album 'Underway' but as a bonus they also get an immediate free download of The Marquee tapes in their choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format they could possibly desire. The free download of the Marquee tapes include booklet, pictures and sleeve notes.

- The advantage of using our bandcamp website is that this website automatically transfers the acquired money in your own currency.

- The price of the physical digipack album 'Underway' is € 15,00 plus shipping costs.

I hope this arrangement will please you.

Thanks for the info on this! Looks like this cd will be a compilation of tracks from the four shows that Tom Huissen recorded in late April and early May 1967. Good news that there will finally be what looks like an "official" release of some of those Bluesbreakers live recordings.

Press Release

JOHN MAYALL’S BLUESBREAKERS LIVE IN 1967 - ALBUM RELEASED 20TH APRIL 2015

John Mayall’s Bluebreakers – Live in 1967, an ultra rare collection of,
never-before-heard, live recordings featuring John Mayall, Peter Green, John McVie
and Mick Fleetwood, will be released on 20th April, on Forty Below Records.

In 1967, before there was a Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick
Fleetwood were John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. The four musicians were only together
for three months, which makes it even more remarkable that a staunch fan from
Holland was able to sneak a one channel reel-to-reel tape recorder into five London
clubs and capture this exciting glimpse into musical history.

For almost fifty years these tapes have remained unheard until Mayall recently got
them and began restoring them with the technical assistance of 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.”

The significant discovery of these live recordings will surely thrill Mayall fans
around the world but, moreover, it has enabled the creation of an historical
document, which captures a very special moment in the evolution of British Blues
music.

Album Review: John Mayall's Bluesbreakers Live in 1967

March 22, 2015 By Jeff Burger, Contributor

If you’re a serious Fleetwood Mac fan, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the early 1970s version of the group—the one that gave us albums like Bare Trees and Heroes Are Hard to Find before Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham came aboard and helped turn them into superstars. You may also know of the even earlier version of Fleetwood Mac that Peter Green led and that delivered terrific blues rock from 1967 to 1969. (See the fantastic six-CD Complete Blue Horizon Sessions.)

What you may not know is that even that group had a precursor — for just three months in 1967, before they split off to form the first Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood served in one of the many incarnations of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. You can hear Green and McVie with Mayall on 1967’s A Hard Road; and on a 2003 expanded version of that album, you can listen to tracks that feature Mick Fleetwood as well (not to mention Paul Butterfield).

What you apparently couldn’t hear until now was how that group sounded live. It turns out, though, that a fan sneaked a recorder into five London clubs in 1967 and taped their performances of 13 songs, including versions of such classics as T-Bone Walker’s “Stormy Monday,” Otis Rush’s “I Can’t Quit You, Baby” and Billy Myles’s “Have You Ever Loved a Woman,” which was popularized by Freddie King and, later, by Bluesbreakers alumnus Eric Clapton. The material sat on the shelf for nearly half a century, but Mayall recently acquired and restored it. It will be released next month as Live in 1967.

The original recordings from which this album was assembled were neither stereo nor even high fidelity, so the audio falls pretty short of what we’re used to these days; it sounds like what you might hear if you were outside the club, catching the music through a half-open window. But Mayall and his record label have made the most of what they had to work with and the result is certainly listenable throughout. Moreover, this material should prove fascinating to fans of both Mayall and the original Fleetwood Mac. The program is stellar and guitarist Peter Green in particular is in fine form throughout.

Actually I was impressed with the quality of the shows. Much better then I really expected. Contacted Tom over a year ago and got all 5 shows though I did buy 3 of his cds. These shows are very listenable. Tom was very easy to deal with and received the shows quickly.

Thanks to Tom we are able to listen to live music from a short era of the 'blues revival' that would have been lost forever if he hadn't been at the location with his tape-recorder to document the blossoming talent of Peter Green together Fleetwood, McVie and, of course, Mayall.

By Jeremy Gaunt, Daily Mail, April 1, 2015

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/reu...ish-Blues.html

LONDON, April 1 (Reuters) - A blues fan's 1967 reel-to-reel tape recording of four then-relatively unknown British musicians is to be released on CD in April, capturing live what today would be dubbed a supergroup.

John Mayall, Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie were together for just three months that year as part of Mayall's Bluesbreakers band.

The music was recorded in five clubs in and around London, including The Marquee and The Ram Jam. It is, for blues aficionados, an immersion into musical history.

And it sounds like a 1960s live electric blues performance should: rough, echoey, raw.

The four musicians all went on to various degrees of fame. Mayall is still an active blues man at 81, the "godfather" of the British electric blues that swept the country in the 1960s and helped promote it beyond its black roots base back in the United States.

At various times and in various incarnations, his band has featured Cream's Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce, The Rolling Stones' Mick Taylor, Canned Heat's Harvey Mandel, and ubiquitous drummer Aynsley Dunbar.

Green, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, is considered one of the world's great electric guitarists. He dropped out of sight for a number of years with mental illness before re-emerging with various bands.

His song "Black Magic Woman" was a global hit for Latin rockers Santana.

Bassist McVie and drummer Fleetwood formed Fleetwood Mac, at first a blues band with Green, then later with a new line-up one of the most successful pop-rock groups of all time.

The new release - "John Mayall's Blues Breakers - Live In 1967" - was restored by Forty Below Records. It is suitably basic and the company admits it is "certainly not hi-fidelity".

Among the more interesting tracks are "I Can't Quit You Baby", a Willie Dixon song that later graced Led Zeppelin's debut album.

There is also a rollicking version of "Hi Heel Sneakers" and a leisurely "Stormy Monday" along with 10 other tracks.

The album is to be released on April 20 in Britain and April 21 in the United States. It ain't pretty - but it's the blues. (Editing by Ruth Pitchford)

Very cool to get some McVie-Green-Fleetwood Bluesbreakers live! I'll be looking forward to the CD but suppose the hardcore fans would like to have the entire shows. I was just going through some old Beat Club/Beat Beat Beat tv shows and while the early ones of 1965-66 have some fantastic live (mono) segments (and a special 1967 show at the Marquee) the later ones seem to be all miming and lip-synching, even by groups who earlier showed they could do solid live performances (Small Faces, The Who) what a waste. No FM or Green related stuff on what I have though (I wish).

Also, Blind Willie Johnson's John the Revelator recording is a foundation classic every blues fan should have around.

Thanks for all the info and links. Sorry for being mostly off topic.

PLEASE, excuse me for going into the off topic stuff here for a second, folks!

but, becca, if you follow the "beat-club" series chronologically, you'll discover that from august '69 on the programme started returning increasingly to the live formula until in january 1970 (the official start of the colour broadcasts) the performances were COMPLETELY live again. and the dvd box-sets indeed DO feature a small live portion of the mac - bc no. 68 from 25-6-71 shows them playing "dragonfly" (although all the optical gimmicks displayed don't make it very easy to really watch the band). and there's outtakes of their performance in existence featuring 2 more songs, "danny in e minor" (?) and "lay it all down" - at least the latter and "dragonfly" can be seen on youtube.

a heartily thanks to all and everyone for bearing with me going astray from the straight line on this occasion (a new thread on this would've been superfluous, as there's nothing more to it, really.)!

Thank you martin! I haven't gone past 1967 on them yet. I only meant that the chances of live Bluesbreakers in 1967 on the Beat-Club show was looking unlikely to me. I have seen the later Fleetwood Mac appearances (and some nice early Yes with Peter Banks).

i'm definitely with you on this, becca! you have to remember that the so-called blues boom hadn't really arrived in germany yet - as a boom as such. the first blues artist to appear on "beat-club" was b.b. king in '68, with only canned heat following in the same year. and it gradually went on from there. so john mayall's first appearance on the programme had to wait until january 1970 (the start of the colour broadcasts) in an - admittedly - somewhat blues-drenched show featuring amongst others humble pie, free, juicy lucy,colosseum, and canned heat.

concerning the mac i was always very disappointed by the fact that they only appeared on 2 shows, with "man of the world" being the well-known playback affair only. and it's a pity that both (broadcasted) appearances have been spoiled by wide-angled camera perspectives or other optical gimmicks.

on the other hand: what about the uk and the u.s. - does anybody have a clue about a time and place of john mayall appearing on tv for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER? please, correct me if i'm wrong, but to the best of my knowledge the first moving pictures of any bluesbreakers line-up date from '68 with mick taylor. so i'd be more than surprised should there be anything floating around with our green god in the mix!
