5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Magic Album, 15 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boston Blues (Audio CD)
Having been a later period Fleetwood Mac fan for a number of years, I was asked whether I had ever listened to any of the "Peter Green" era, more blues-based music. I had not, and having listened to this I have to admit I have really been missing out on something! Thanks Dad!

Essentially, this wonderful doble set is a compliation of the Live in Boston Vol.1: the Boston Tea Party, Live in Boston Vol.2: the Boston Tea Party and very hard to find on CD (and therefore expensive) Live in Boston Vol.3: Remastered. Songs which in the studio last a mere five or six minutes are given the full Peter Green blues treatment, and extend to well in excess of ten minutes, with the epic Rattlesnake Shake going on for over 24 minutes, and even then you get the sense that the sound recorder started to fade, as the song still seems to be going on.

This really is a prime example of British Blues playing at its best, from a band who were obviously enjoying playing together, on top form and were comfortable with one another - the sound is not perfect, but that adds to the authenticity of the recording - who wants a live record sounding as though it has been transplanted straight from the recording studion?

If you want to own just two examples of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, you would not go far wrong with this, complemented by The Best of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, to give a flavour of both the live experience and what the band sounded like in the studio, and I think you will agree, whilst the studio expereince was very, very good, the live one was out of this world!
