Lonely Years/Bernard Jenkins -RECORD STORE DAY- Limited Edition 7″ Single

The short-lived but seminal partnership between British blues godfather John Mayall and guitar godhead Eric Clapton is famous for producing the massively influential Blues Breakers album. But Mayall and Clapton also collaborated on this lesser-known, yet equally noteworthy, single. The disc, originally issued in a limited edition on producer Mike Vernon’s mail-order-only Purdah label, features a pair of spare duo performances: the loping Mayall composition ”Lonely Years” and the rousing Clapton-penned instrumental “Bernard Jenkins.” Both sides were recorded in October 1965, a few months before the Blues Breakers LP, but released shortly after the album. These two rare vintage gems, sourced from the original mono masters, capture both of these legendary blues masters in an intimate, stripped-down setting.
