“Wake Up Call” originally released in 1993 with Coco Montoya’s searing but economical string-slashing, drummer Joe Yuele, and bassist Rick Cortes, John Mayall has managed to keep a stable core of Bluesbreakers together in recent years. Mayallís Wake Up Call finds him returning to a basic, physical sound after 1990’s more progressive/highly produced A Sense of Place. The harp whiz has rarely flirted with the pop charts over the decades, a track record that will likely handicap the title track – a potential hit featuring guest vocalist Mavis Staples and some take-charge riffing from former mate Mick Taylor. For pure guitar joy though, Montoya turns the trick all on his own with barnburners “Loaded Dice” and “Nature’s Disappearing”. Also Buddy Guy appears on “I Could Cry”.
