When I find myself agreeing with that Manc monkey

In Session with Peter Green 2008

Noel Gallagher, it doesn’t feel right.

But when he says of the legend that is Peter Green…

With all due respect to the other great British blues artists, Peter Green is THE man. End of.Noel Gallagher

…he is speaking a truth I wholeheartedly agree with. Greeny is the greatest, yeah Claptout has got all the flash, the fame, the adulation, but he can’t touch Peter Green when it comes to playing. Green has always had the touch, feel and depth that leaves others dead in his wake…

He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweatsB.B. King

Now that’s coming from one of the greatest bluesmen of all time.

To coincide with the release of “Peter Green The Anthology” the great one has recorded a few tracks for teh interweb “The Canvey Island Session”.

Great to so the old fella back with a guitar in hand, check out those cheapies Epiphone and Squier just goes to show it’s all in the fingers and nowt to do with the equipment used. He’s looking a lot better than the last time I saw him, though it was a great night of music from the Splinter Group, the Friday before England won the rugby World Cup, he did look a touch frail after.

If you don’t have any of Green’s albums, in the Bluesbreakers, solo or with the mighty Fleetwood Mac – that is the real Mac not that overblown L.A. group it became after PG left – then this anthology is a great place to start.

But you should really already have the likes of “A Hard Road“, “The Complete Blue Horizon Sessions 1967-1969” and “The Robert Johnson Songbook“. Shame on you if you don’t.

Still there’s always teh interweb for those that have missed out…

And of course Albert Ross…
