The Same Way
John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers
A Hard Road (1967)
This album was the crucial follow up to the landmark Bluesbreaker record with Eric “slowhand” Clapton. On “A Hard Road” we see Peter Green carving his own niche as one of the most influential British blues guitarists. His tone makes the devil melt and on songs like “Someday after a while (you’ll be sorry)”, you hear some of the most gut wrenching sorrowful solos you could hope to hear. You will also hear Green’s achingly poignant blues voice for the first time on recording. A true lost legend, this is Green coming into his own before forming Fleetwood Mac the very same year.
