Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton Get Audiophile Remaster

(Nightwatcher) Audio Fidelity has just given one of the most influential albums in blues rock history the audiophile, 24 KT gold compact disc treatment with the release of John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers' 1966 classic 'Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton'.

Remastered in original mono from the original Decca LTD. master tapes, the recording was named # 195 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, and has been for over four decades a go to primer of British Blues for guitarists world wide.

The Bluesbreakers, led by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist John Mayall, were formed in January 1963. Eric Clapton joined in 1965 just a few months after the release of their first album. It remains one of the key, seminal releases of the 1960s, and a highly influential record, as the sound of Clapton's Les Paul through an overdriven Marshall stack provided inspiration to a whole generation of blues-based electric guitarists and groups. Clapton's incendiary playing inspired graffiti saying "Clapton is God" on the streets of London. - more on this story
