Eagle (2007)

This is John Mayall's 56th official release! Now into his 70's he can still play those guitar licks and then some.

This album is a tribute to fellow blues guitarist Freddie King, who was a big influence on Mayall and fellow British based guitarists in the 60's. King passed away in 1976 but his influence and songs live on helped by this fitting tribute by Mayall.

'Goin' Down' is most probably the most instantly recognisable track on here, whilst the instrumental 'Cannonball Shuffle' sees Robben Ford guest on guitar and Mayall switching to harmonica. 'I'd Rather Go Blind' and 'Big Legged Woman' are other stand out tracks.

Two Mayall penned tuens finish off the album with 'King of the Kings', the latter featuring some cracking boogie woogie piano playing.

A very enjoyable classic blues rock album with plenty of variety and John Mayall still on great form after all these years of playing and touring (his touring schedule would put many newer bands to shame!).
