Album review: John Mayall, Wake Up Call (1993)

 

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT, JUNE 3, 1993

By Steve Newton

Blues legend Mayall lays down 12 bare-bones blues-rock tunes on Wake Up Call, his third good album in a row after Chicago Line and A Sense of Place.

Fans of wailing harp and biting guitar won’t be disappointed by the sounds coming from Mayall’s lungs and the flying fingers of Bluesbreaker guitarist Coco Montoya, or by guests Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, and Mick Taylor.
