5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful rendition of Robert Johnson classics 26 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a "must have" album for the discerning blues collector. Combining superb musicianship, well crafted songs and excellent production. The overall result is an excellent CD introducing the unitiated to the founding father of the blues and the experienced collector to finely rendered versions of timeless classics. Beautifully packaged with extensive liner notes providing insightful commentary on the individual songs and the history of both Robert Johnson and Peter Green. Unreservedly highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing and Strange 28 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Nothing can ever truly compare to the haunting starkness of the original Robert Johnson recordings. Peter Green is a blessed and subtle guitarist whose tone and phrasing is second only to the great B B King himself. In The Robert Johnson Songbook, Peter and his band have achieved something very special indeed. The strangeness of the original recordings has been captured and re-invented but what is most remarkable is that they have introduced a consoling warmth that soothes the soul and at times makes those little hairs on the back of your neck tingle. Peter Green is a vastly underated musician and this collection of timeless songs carries an authenticity that no other living artist could hope to match.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic album 10 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
One of the best albums I've heard for a long time Peter Green really is one of the greatest guitarists and musicians of our time
The only albums of his that are possibly better are the other half of the Robert Johnson songbook released as Hot Foot Powder and the amazing In The Skies that Peter Green released many years ago both of these albums should be in everyone's collection

4.0 out of 5 stars Greenie Back to His Roots--Good Stuff !!! 6 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
Most blues affictionadoes will have the original Robert Johnson versions in the collection somewhere,so why buy this? 'Cause this is PG back to his roots and brilliant with it,vocals and guitar work are well up to standard. Not the usual selection of Johnson's material,makes a change ,which is remarkable as there are only 29 to choose from. Well done Peter,I recomend this to any Blues fan.

This is a beautifully recorded album of Johnson's originals. Greens singing is haunting and so tuneful, also tasteful keyboards and solid bass, for my money it beats Mr Johnson by EC hands down
