The Sixties Blues-Rock Explosion

John Mayall The Sixties Blues-Rock Explosion, the first volume in a series covering Sixties rock music, offers fascinating profiles of 42 artists, ranging from the influential and popular Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and the Allman Brothers to lesser-known contributors including Bakerloo and Black Cat Bones. This comprehensive collection, which concentrates on 1960-1970 - a vibrant period where blues music enjoyed a significant renaissance due largely to young white musicians who brought a rock `n' roll intensity to the blues - is unrivaled in its attention to detail and accuracy. Along with complete biographies, U.S. and UK discographies and the artists' critical and commercial impact, the Sixties Blues-Rock Explosion opens a window to the often riveting interpersonal dynamics that shaped and ultimately defined combustible groups like the Yardbirds, Allman Brothers, Cream, the Siegel-Schwall Band and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, that renowned launching pad for future guitar heroes like Mick Taylor, Peter Green and `Slowhand' himself.
