Tracklisting

(JP: 'I used to play that to death in California on KMEN, San Bernadino, and once again when I got back to Britain on the pirate radio ship Radio London.')
R-725750-1236764874

John Mayall, with Eric Clapton reading the Beano

(JP: 'I'm such an amusing chap that when Strange Fruit records, with whom I used to pick the tracks (never got any money out of it, I hasten to add, all those John Peel Session things, nothing to do with me financially at all), but they let me pick, me and my son William actually, picked the tracks for a Sub Pop compilation, and I was going to call it something enormously droll, like the Sub Pop Strange Fruit Greatest Hits LP Volume Three, just so people could try and collect One and Two. Ha ha ha, didn't exist, ha ha, what a waggish guy. Ha ha ha ha ha!')
