Two Vintage John Mayall Sets: Live at Marquee & The Masters Available June 3

Eagle Rock Entertainment will re-release two of British blues superstar John Mayall's vintage live albums on June 3.

The Masters is a two-disc set, originally released in 1999, culled from a British show 30 years earlier, that also features music from the original film soundtrack of The Turning Point, a “rockumentary" on Mayall which chronicles his adventurous decision to go acousticwithout drums!shortly after guitarist Mick Taylor left the band to go join The Rolling Stones. Complete with interviews of Eric Clapton and others, The Masters is an eclectic look back at a band in transition, and the genius who inexorably moves more towards a pure blues sound even after attaining rock star status.

Live At The Marquee, also originally released in 1999, is from a 1969 performance in London. This single disc is filled with the kind of long legendary jams that gave that era its musical personality.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
