Affectionately known by many as "The Beano Album" (as EC is pictured reading a copy of The Beano comic on the cover), its ranked 195 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. "John Mayall with Eric Clapton: Blues Breakers" was released originally in 1966 and with it, Clapton established his reputation as a guitarist and rose to international prominence.
