Format: Audio CD
I bought this album on release in 1978, on green vinyl no less. That wasn't the reason I bought it though. I'd heard the title track on "Juke Box Jury" and Green's gorgeous guitar line and measured vocal delivery marked it out from the more frenetic records being showcased. The music throughout this album is beautifully played and produced, largely due to the excellence of the band as a whole. Hiring Snowy White as co-guitarist proves to be a dream combination.
Five of the tracks are instrumental, which won't please some, but there's nothing I rate as filler. Of those instrumentals, "The Apostle" is stunning and features only Green and White. The longest track, "Fool No More", sees Green revisiting his blues song roots and his tasteful, economical playing is so effective that you can almost sense the cigarette smoke and alcohol.
The criticisms I've read about "In The Skies" are that some of the instrumentals are repetitive and that the music is too mellow, but while I understand the charges, they seem rather arbitrary. All in all, it's a lovely album.

By 1978 most Peter Green afficionados had given up on him ever playing again. Various rumours about him having mental problems, working as a gravedigger, ending up in prison for brandishing a shotgun at his accountant etc. had been circulating for seven years. Then without fanfare, in mid 1979 "in the skies" was released. Fans like myself, eager to hear if Peter still had the magic touch rushed out to buy the lp. We were not disappointed. Sure the album is mellow and has some spiritual feel to it, but the man`s gift was still there. Apparently, if the stories can be believed, Peter had not picked up a guitar for five years and had given his beloved les paul to his friend, Gary Moore. He was coaxed out of musical retirement by his brother, Mike, who worked for PVK records, owned by Peter Vernon Kell. Peter Kell carefully persuaded Peter Green to record a few tracks with a few old mates of Greeny`s (and top session musicians), Snowy White, Peter Bardens, Reg Isodore etc. Kell realised that although initially rusty, Peter Green was soon firing on all cylinders again. An instrumental track "Apostle" was recorded and released ahead of the album. Reminiscent of the acoustic part of "Oh Well", it had Mick Fleetwood crying when he heard it. Snowy White takes lead guitar on two tracks, the title track and the superb "Slabo Day". The rest is Peter Green showing what he can do on tracks like "Tribal Dance", "Funky Chunk" and others. The standout track is the new interpretation of his "A fool no more", which to my ears, is one of the finest slices of blues playing ever laid down, his guitar (a Fender Jazzmaster, i believe) just drips with the emotion, feeling and tasteful playing that made Green the finest blues guitarist of his generation.Read more ›

After Fleetwood Mac Peter lost his way but refound himself with this superlative album.It is mellow and bluesy and tends to creep up on you. It is a shame that Peter has lost it again since............buy this and remember how good he was.

Mellow Blues from the great Mr Green with some gospel influences, from his 70's post Fleetwood Mac period. Wonderfully subtle playing and some great musicians in support including the late Pete Bardens.

A real fantastic album. Wish I had heard this years ago. The days stress lifted and the beauty of the artist shone through in words and sheer quality of music.Thanks Peter.

at his best following his long lay off. Great cd by a superb musician. My one gripe would be that most cd's play for much longer nowadays, but I have bought the vinyl when this first came out and its brilliant to be able to play this in the car as well as around the house.
