John Mayall gets the star treatment in this installment of the fantastic LIVE FROM AUSTIN series, which features uncut performances from perhaps the greatest live televised music showcase ever, Austin City Limits. Throughout his career, Mayall has been more famous as a picker and pruner of talent--among the ranks of his famed Bluesbreakers stood Peter Green, Eric Clapton, and Mick Taylor--than as a bluesman in his own right, but here he challenges all comers with a confident set of blues classics and self-penned numbers, plus a wildly effusive stage persona. The set was originally recorded on September 13, 1993.
