What a brilliant clip – a superb Mayall line-up – possibly one of his best and streets better than his current one.
What do people think?
Etta James was superb too!!

Bit of a strange one this Pete, almost sure Mick Taylor and John McVie weren’t in his band as such when this was shot in the early eighties . . . some sort of video job or tv show? Other clips from this show on YouTube feature Junior Wells and Buddy Guy, and I think, Albert King.

As Captain Mainwaring said to Sergeant Wilson – “Well spotted Wilson – I wondered when you’d notice that”
The gig was in New Jersey in 1982 and you’re right Gra, it did include Junior Wells, Buddy Guy and Albert Collins and also 83 year old Sippie Wallace.
I watched it at first and seeing Colin Allen and Mick Taylor immediately assumed it was the Laurel Canyon line-up which I think was a superb line-up. It was only then after I posted that I noticed John McVie – I guessed you might respond…

I forgot to mention -Stephen Thompson was on bass in the Laurel Canyon band.
