John Mayall - Live at The Centre Vancouver

More blues aboard thanks to The rippin' Frog, this time with John Mayall in Vancouver.

John Mayall - Live at The Centre Vancouve

British born blues legend John Mayall got a very warm welcome from over a thousand devoted fans in the plush surroundings of The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts on Remembrance Day 2009. An obviously delighted Mayall returned the love with a three-hour long show, some of which is highlighted in this special CBC Concerts on Demand offering. With over fifty albums released during his career, Mayall is one of the most prolific and celebrated artists in the blues genre. This show featured music ranging from the 1966 "Beano" album, a classic, that famously included a young Eric Clapton on guitar, to his 2009 release on Eagle Records, called "Tough". He has lived in California for decades but on June 10, 2005 Queen Elizabeth named John Mayall an officer of the Order of the British Empire at the same time that Brian May of Queen and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin also received the same honour.
