The former Fleetwood Mac guitarist, now a celebrated blues musician, captured live in performance with his band in 2003. The performance, filmed in England, is divided into two sets. The first is an acoustic set of vintage blues tracks that culminates in a performance of Fleetwood Mac's 'Albatross'. The second is a more eclectic electric set comprised of blues songs, the Splinter Group's own material and Fleetwood Mac covers. The songs include: 'Running After You', 'Man of the World' and 'Black Magic Woman'.

Fans MUST remember that the group is now more than a Peter Green exhibition and masterclass. Nigel Watson plays a large part in the acoustic performances but Peter's past magic is still evident in the electric set.
After all of Pete's troubles it's great to see him again, not at his absolute best, but close enough for all who love his work.
Love the music, live the music.
Nowadays he plays in the Splinter Group, but not as lead guitar, thats left to Nigel Watson. It is he who leads this brilliant blues band. However there is no missing the influence and mastery that Green brings to the new songs and old blues numbers. Their performance on stage is nothing short of sensational. This band should be recognised for what it has become, the best blues band performing today. Get this DVD, not just because of Peter Green. If you love The Blues its a must have!!
Having witnessed PG & the Splinter Group live earlier in their career a number of times, this concert doesn't really showcase the band at their peak. The whole band in general don't appear as enthusiastic as they did in the past, and for various reasons split up not long afterwards anyway.
Focusing on PG himself, we all know and understand his long and difficult road back to performing again, but here he is just too laid back, almost sleepy at times, & seems extremely bored with most of what's going on. Earlier in the Splinter Group career he played guitar and sang with more fire & energy, for instance check out the first Splinter Group CD release (the blue one) where despite sometimes sounding rusty & coarse his playing is far more inventive and `lively'. Even Nigel's solo's on this DVD don't sound as tuneful as they did in the past (not really keen on the ending to Black Magic Woman here, especially compared to Santana's versions).
However, the DVD is still worth purchasing if you're a Greeny fan, the version of the Stumble is still good by any standard, and his slide work on Believe My Time Aint Long is respectable enough (as is some of the Wah-Wah work), but if your expecting PG at his Splinter Group best, or from his even greater Fleetwood Mac day's, just be prepared for a disappointment.
On a more positive note, much of the Acoustic section of the concert is quite enjoyable, the sound quality is superb, the song choices are quite a good mix, and most of the filming is of a good standard too. So overall I'd say 3 stars, but on CD there's much better examples out there of the legendary Peter Green from any era.
The dvd features the full concert set as performed on the Splinter Group's UK tour in February/March 2003. The show starts with an acoustic set featuring songs from the groups Robert Johnson covers albums together with a great version of "Albatross". The acoustic set is followed by an electric set which includes songs from the the recently released "Reaching the Cold 100" alongside Fleetwood Mac classics "Man of the World", "Need Your Love So Bad", "Green Manalishi" and "Black Magic Woman".
Extras on the dvd include an interview with Peter and Nigel, a discography and the promo video for "Real World".
All in all a great souvenir for anyone who has seen the Peter Green Splinter Group in concert!
My copy has a fault in that I cannot access the sound setup from the menu screen and have to use options once the concert has begun, but not worth sending back as it only cost me £1 plus p&p.
