The Blues Alone is a 1967 electric blues album recorded by John Mayall on which he recorded all the parts himself, with the exception of percussion which was provided by longtime collaborator Keef Hartley. The cover art and the original LP sleeve design are by John Mayall. Sleeve notes, including track notes, were written by noted DJ John Peel. The following quote is of interest regarding the album concept.

John Mayall - The Blues Alone (1967). Songs in album John Mayall - The Blues Alone (1967).

Composer, Guitar, Harmonica, Keyboards, Primary Artist, Producer, Vocals.

Mayall played and overdubbed all instruments except drums, which were handled by Bluesbreaker Keef Hartley. But it didn't quite prove that, since Mayall, while certainly competent on harmonica, keyboards, and guitars, doesn't display the flair of an Eric Clapton or Peter Green, and the overdubbing, as is so often the case, robs the recording of any real sense of interplay.
