AllMusic Review by

The Fuel 2000 reissue of Blues Forever highlights John Mayall's re-formed Bluesbreakers of the '80s. This live date is an early showcase for Coco Montoya and Walter Trout, the featured guitarists who secured their musical reputations during this stint with Mayall. While Blues Forever is mainly a guitarist showcase, Mayall leads the proceedings but doesn't dominate them. These eight digitally remastered cuts include strong versions of the Willie Dixon/Otis Rush classic "All Your Love," "Ridin' on the L & N," and Mayall's signature tune, "Room to Move."
