Kudos for yet another tremendous post! I have also had this great record for many years. My wife and I were fortunate enough to meet Mr. Mayall during his 70th birthday concert tour a few years ago which was really cool. Everyone should also check out “Jazz Blues Fusion” which in my opinion is his best work featuring Blue Mitchell as well as Larry Taylor of Canned Heat fame.
Peace and blessings.”

Thank for the comment, Vincent!
