Looking Back is the seventh album released by John Mayall in August 1969 by Decca Records. The album features songs by both John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and John Mayall solo work. The album reached No. 79 on the Billboard 200. Confusingly, there are two different albums with the title "Looking Back": a Decca UK release as a single album (SKL 5010) and a Decca Germany (issued by TELDEC) release as a double album (DS 3104/1-2). Later issues on CD would use the Deram label.

Many of the best known bands to come out of Britain in the 1960s and 1970s had members that came through the Bluesbreakers at one time, forming the foundation of British blues music that still appears heavily in classic rock radio.

Background information.
John Mayall played a crucial role in the development of British music in the 60’s that re-vitalised the Blues from its enclaves in the Black American community and gave it to everybody. As leader of the Bluesbreakers, his revolving door policy gave dozens of young players a chance to step into the spotlight. Mayall himself is a solid rather than spectacular performer as a vocalist, pianist, keyboard, harp and guitar player, but he has stayed on the road for more than half a century and released over 60 albums
The album was supposed to reflect the stage set at the time, and with its mixture of Chicago blues covers and Mayall compositions, for the most part it did. The Bluesbreakers had a large contingent of followers at the Flamingo Club; a posse of black American GIs who, as fans of Jimmy Smith, were into the organ-driven bands of Georgie Fame, Brian Auger and Graham Bond. Although Flint acknowledges that the band played well on the album, it was Eric who shone. The album was a unique moment in time – a combination of Mayall’s intellectual sincerity and Clapton’s savage intensity and emotional truth that ripped through all the key solos. It’s commonplace with cultural phenomenon of the past to say, it’s hard nowadays to imagine the impact that X had at the time.
