5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST Peter Green Album IMHO, 12 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Live In Boston, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
Hello dangermash fans, especially those of you directed here by my review of the Live at Ronny Scott's album.
You've arrived at the best Peter Green recordings out there, in my humble opinion. I recomend you buy all three volumes of the Boston concerts but if you wanted to just dip your toe in and try one, this is the best of the three.
Black Magic Woman, Rattlesnake Shake and Green Manalishi were great tracks I was already familiar with, although the 20-25 minute length of the Snake was a surprise. The Snake is very much an improvised jam and appears on the second disc too (obviously with only about 10% in common with the one on this disc).
Jumping at Shadows is a superb track. I'm surprised it wasn't on the FMac Gratest Hits that I've got. If you like it, you should try out the 3rd album in the set - that has an even better version.
Only You is a great example of dueling guitarists, so one for all you Allman Brothers or AC/DC fans out there.
Tracks 6 and 7 are Elmore James style blues rockers. In fact all three albums move into rock & roll in the second half. The reason I prefer this cd to the other two is that it's blues rock - the others go into Chuck Berry, Bill Haley type stuff.
And as somebody else said in a review of one of the other discs, all three of them have superb liner notes. Would have been good, though, if the discs had come in proper plastic cases rather than cardboard ones. Cheapskates!
If you like this then try discs 2 and 3 obviously. After that I went onto Live at Ronny Scott's, which wasn't as good as the Boston recordings. I'll probably try out FMac studio recordings next. Watch this space!
