Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton, colloquially known as The Beano Album, is a studio album by the blues rock band John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. Produced by Mike Vernon and released in 1966 by Decca Records (UK) and London Records (US), it pioneered a guitar-dominated blues-rock sound.

The album consists of blues standards by well-known artists, such as Otis Rush, Freddie King and Robert Johnson, as well as a few originals penned by Mayall and Clapton. Most tracks serve as a showcase for Clapton’s playing. Although he provided some co- and backing vocals with his former group, the Yardbirds, Ramblin’ On My Mind is Clapton’s first solo lead vocal to be recorded.

The album was commercially successful and most critics viewed it positively. In 2003 and 2012, Rolling Stone ranked it No. 195 on its list of the ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’. It was voted No. 391 in Colin Larkin’s All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000).

Pressed on heavyweight 180g vinyl, this reissue includes a digital download voucher.
