[TALENT SCOUT] English bluesman John Mayall probably spent the late ’60s feeling pretty bummed out. Eric Clapton left Mayall’s band, the Bluesbreakers, to form Cream in 1966. Then his next guitarist, Peter Green, quit to form Fleetwood Mac. Two years later, his third guitarist abandoned the project to join the Rolling Stones. The decades and 50 albums since, however, have proven Mayall, 79, will always find an excellent, rough-and-tumble outfit of veteran musicians to serve alongside him on tape and the road. His latest release, Tough, only features three Mayall-penned tracks, but it’s still an organ-steeped sonic landscape of steely electric guitar, driving bass and scuzzy harmonica, reminding us that mainstream success need not matter.
