    Re: Live with John Mayall´s Bluesbreakers(?)

    I got this track in a trade a number of years ago (without any details really) and sent it to mr HP (of In From the storm website fame). It was first circulatated in the torrent below. The verdict was unsure whether it is Jimi. Maybe it's still on the CT tracker.

    http://www.johnmayall.com/fanmail_4.html:

    “... On the album 'Diary of a Band' Jimi takes over Mick's guitar towards the end of the track 'Blues in Bb' and unfortunately I didn't have room to put the whole slow blues on the album and in any case Jimi's management dissuaded me from using his name. A shame......” (John Mayall 2004)

    In regard to the Mayall track it should also be pointed out that there's more than a little controversy regarding whether or not Hendrix really plays on this track. Many people think he doesn't, and although Hendrix sat in with The Bluesbreakers at Speakeasy, London 02.11.67, Mayall himself has over the years given conflicting info as to Hendrix' specific involvement, such as in an interview with Record Collector, where he said Hendrix played on the track "The Lesson". The track is included here simply as a bonus, and you can make up your own mind as to what you want to believe.

    Caesar Glegeek informed me that the sequence on the album (all 1m 32s of it) does not feature Jimi. That would mean that John got his (bare) wires crossed somewhere. To make matters worse, Caesar said that the original tape went up in flames in a fire at Mayall's LA home ! What a shame.

    Yeah, Mayall's tape collection burned up in the 70's. But note the phrase "original tape" here; Mayall apparently still has some 60's recordings in his collection. He included 6 previously unsurfaced tracks with Clapton, Green and Taylor on a box set a few years ago.

    Not worth starting another thread for, but while we're on the subject of still unheard tapes, somehow I doubt we'll ever hear the Taj Mahal "cricket" jam. Frustrating because it was known to exist, and the last I heard EH was supposed to have it. Supposedly Taj and Jimi didn't mesh that well, but I'd still like to hear it.

    It's 4 less than essential though enjoyable late-period albums along with the live rarities.

    Hendrix and John Mayall

    Hi I was lucky enough to chat with Mick Ralphs[Bad Company/Mott The Hoople]on Saturday night .He mentioned seeing Hendrix jam with John Mayalls Bluesbreakers,using Mick Taylors guitar[upside down!] and was amazed how he still managed to play so well.He said it was in London,probably 1967.Anybody got confirmation of date and venue?

    Re: Hendrix and John Mayall

    January 9, 1968 Klook's Kleek R & B Club, Railway Hotel, West Hampstead, London, England (Jimi Hendrix jams with Al Sykes and John Mayall)

    http://www.chromeoxide.com/mayall.htm

    I've found this info on the same site. Is this confirmed or only speculation?

    Diary Of A Band - Volume 1 & 2 - LPs (released February 1968)
    (Jimi Hendrix-uncredited, played on one of these tracks instead of Mick Taylor)

    I still haven't been able to find "Blues in Bb" anywhere online so I can give it a listen and decide for myself whether Jimi is on it.
