“This is from one of my more obscure albums – and believe me, there are plenty of them out there,” British blues legend John Mayall admitted by way of introducing “Dream About the Blues.”
Indeed. Mayall led his new band into The Egg on Wednesday to launch a short east coast tour in support of “Tough,” his 57th album – not counting various compilations and re-packagings.
57 albums? That’s a whole lotta blues.
