According to Mayall’s biography, provided by Mark Pucci Media, Mayall found himself in a North Hollywood studio with his band back in 2013 – around the same time when the godfather of British blues was preparing for his 80th birthday. Joining him was special guest C.J. Chenier and co-producer/engineer Eric Corne. When Mayall and company walked out of that studio, one of the finest and most personal records of his career, “A Special Life,” had been born.
Mayall was born in 1933 and grew up in a village not far from Manchester, England. It was here as a teenager that he first became attracted to the jazz and blues 78s in his father's record collection.
