John Mayall's Bluesbreakers ‎– Crusade. Label: Decca ‎– SKL 4890. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Stereo. Recorded At Decca Studios, West Hampstead On 12Th July 1967. Released on a blue/silver Decca label with ''unboxed'' logo. The cover is laminated on the front only. Rights Society: BIEM NCB GEMA.

The centerpiece of the album is a beautiful instrumental by Taylor titled "Snowy Wood," which, while wholly original, seems to combine both Green and Clapton's influence with great style and sensibility. The rest of the record, while very enjoyable, is standard blues-rock fare of the day, but somewhat behind the then-progressive flavor of 1967. Mayall, while being one of the great bandleaders of London, simply wasn't really the frontman that the group needed so desperately, especially then. Nevertheless, Crusade is important listening for Mick Taylor aficionados.
