A Hard Road is not the most linear of John’s records, and certainly seems tame when compared to the previous release with a line up that included Eric Clapton. The unevenness is due in large part to its vast array of talent, and musical directions being explored. But I think in many ways this is what made A Hard Road such an outstanding release for its day. it made for the perfect album to be played on the fledgling progressive radio stations that were beginning to blossom across America

Eric Clapton is usually thought of as John Mayall's most important right-hand man, but the case could also be made for his successor, Peter Green. The future Fleetwood Mac founder leaves a strong stamp on his only album with the Bluesbreakers, singing a few tracks and writing a couple, including the devastating instrumental "Supernatural

Amhirishes
As instantly recognizable as a distant blue neon sign in the night, the voice of John Mayall floats on a breeze that finds it’s way directly to your soul. There is no one quite like John, and with Peter Green complimenting him, it’s all sheer magic.A Hard Road is not the most linear of John’s records, and certainly seems tame when compared to the previous release with a line up that included Eric Clapton. The unevenness is due in large part to its vast array of talent, and musical directions being explored. But I think in many ways this is what made A Hard Road such an outstanding release for its day ... it made for the perfect album to be played on the fledgling progressive radio stations that were beginning to blossom across America. Each song was uniquely different, each song occupied it’s own space and each song was a snapshot of future styles to be explored by John Mayall, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, and Aynsly Dunbar, not to mention all the others who would be influenced by this single outing.Just listen to the sustained instrumentation on “Supernatural,” you will never hear a more clear indication of the impression this number must have left on Carlos Santana. Or “Top Of The Hill,” with those tiny sweetly pecked piano keys laid down right in time to the muted high end of the bending guitar. And if you jump some forty years into the future and listen to “Hard To Thrill,” from the release Road To Escondido, by Eric Clapton and J.J. Cale, where you can easily draw a straight line right back to this album, allowing you to easily realize what a brilliant piece of music this was, how it’s held up, even though it tightly embraced Rock, R&B, Blues and even Jazz. Mayall’s strength was as a harp player, a sound he had not taken full advantage of here, and would not until his Empty Rooms release, and his playing seldom varied from the classic twelve bar pattern. So what was it that allowed his guitar style to sound so eerie [?], that was due to his preference for a nine string guitar, a very curious and seldom used instrument, but when it’s held with the right hands, it can be breathtaking.There is not a single thing wrong with this album ... that is unless you’re an Eric Clapton fan, and to those folks I simply point to the fact that Eric was a side man, learning his lessons, developing his style, and discovering what the Blues were all about form a man who not only knew them inside and out, but was taking the Blues on his own magical mystery tour. This is another album that is essential to hear at least once on vinyl, where the wax allows the notes to breath, where the tiniest of intonations resound with effect and purpose.*** The Fun Facts: On the first of the first pressings, the reverse album liner notes cover, or partially cover the LONDON logo/label, this was corrected on later first editions. The vinyl is now over fifty years old, with the depth of the grooves and heaviness of the plastic making mine still sound flawless, even though it hardly looks that way.Review by Jenell Kesler

Great version and excellent quality, I do not have the original as a comparison but it sounds good to me when compared to the digital high res version I own (sans the awesome bonus tracks). The bonus Green tracks are fantastic, they were not released on the Green era bluesbreaker albums, but they can be found on later John Mayall compilations like "Thru The Years" and "Looking Back".

AGAD
Peter Green is one of the guitar greats and he makes this album. For the most part it's fairly straight ahead blues rock, not all that engaging, in fact a bit dull in parts, but worth getting this just for the highlight which is Peter Green's "Supernatural". I once read someone describe this tune as Peter Green coming back from the future and doing an impression of Santana doing an impression of him. It certainly has the feel of Santana's cover of "Black Magic Women". The other high points of the album are the covers of "The Stumble" and "Someday After A While (You'll Be Sorry)".

TheJonnyTest
I have this record with different features. It says 'Printed in The Netherlands' on the bottom left of the back sleeve. The catalog number is 6835 922. It is definitely Decca. It has a blue label with white letters. On the run-out groove of side 1 it says: 6835 922 1Y 2 P 1967 670 114 06. On side 2 it is: 6835 922 2Y 2 P 1967 670 112 06. It looks like an original release, but I did not buy it in 1967 (I was 2 years old, then) ans suspect it is a re-issue. Can anyone help me? Is it simply not yet on discogs? Or is it rare?Kind regards, Michel Gunsing, Netherlands.
