Just got my copy recently and have played it continuously, it really is another fine example of life on the road a la Mayall, it is abundantly clear that here are three musicians with fully operational ears and not an aggregate waiting for their turn to shine. Communication is the key to John Mayall's music. First the musicians completely communicate with each other and this leads to fantastic communication with the audience through live and recorded music. Three for the Road presents a clear message that the blues is alive and well wherever, these guys play. There is no guitarslinger in earshot and none is required on this album by a classic blues trio lineup of highly skilled players who know how to listen as well as talk. If you like good swinging music buy this album and enjoy!
