Brilliant tribute & best singer impersonation of all time...,
This review is from: Blues For Greeny (Audio CD)
Weird but inspired, this album is dedicated to Peter Green, founder of the original blues based Fleetwood Mac, and is so clever that you really can believe that it’s Green himself - his songs, the guitar he used on them (given to Gary Moore by him, clearly cherished and beautifully played) and, most bizarrely of all, his voice.
Gary Moore has painstakingly produced one of the very best tribute albums possible - not only does it often improve on the originals (in particular “Long Grey Mare” and “I Loved Another Woman”) while brilliantly re-interpreting others, most notably the breathtakingly long work-out of “Looking For Somebody”, but it helped stimulate the great UK bluesman out of retirement. Reason enough on its own for serious praise but, quite regardless of all this, a brilliant album in its own right. If you're into classic UK R&B, don't miss it.
