Still Fresh Today
on 18 June 2010
I've recently purchased this album and its absolutely fantastic. Even though the typical Peter Green lover would except Blues and his incredible vocals just like he did in Fleetwood Mac, this is something that is completely different. It would take a genius to produce this, and its worth buying just for the track 'Bottom's Up' which sounds a lot like Hendrix only with a more jazzy feel, especially coming from the rhythm section which is brilliant.
I heard somewhere that Peter Green despised Jazz fusion, but it obviously not a Jazz fusion record, but it does mix alot of genres into one. The best way to describe it is Hendrix mixed with LSD, a lot of Wah Wah stuff and exceptional melodies coming from his guitar in this extended jam album. There are no vocals, but there doesn't need to be, as the guitar playing is out of this world. Its very psychedelic blues rock with a jazzy rhythm section to sum it up.
I agree with the review above, it does kind of take an acquired taste, and definitely an open mind to Peter Green's huge change in direction the Fleetwood Mac stuff but its better to reinvent yourself than repeat yourself as they say. As long as you take the music for Peter Green as a solo act and not Fleetwood Mac, then you'll hopefully love this CD as I do.
