Brilliant!
09/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of all of the outstanding recordings Peter Green has made with the Splinter Group this is perhaps their finest release. The rust present on the first Splinter Group recording is absent here. Green plays in all of his fluid, soulful glory. The band is tight and remarkably attuned to his musical presence. Covers of some old Fleetwood Mac numbers are particularly enjoyable. Even though some of the same blues standards are covered on the first release the versions on this recording improve upon them greatly. It's nice to have Peter Green back after all of these years. His is one voice that was sorely missed, as guitarists of his like are rare in that he never overplays but is remarkable for his passion and soulful soloing. Brilliant musician, brilliant recording. Highly recommended...Simon"
An All Time Great Returns

"I was at the show recorded for this album, and although a recording can't ever do complete justice to a live event, this does come really close. Peter Green came back from the brink, and with the help of some fine musicians, (in poarticular, his friend, Nigel Watson) he is again making music that can shivers down the spine. Yes, it is true that the music on this set is mostly old classics and blues standards, but the progression since Peter came back is there for all to hear! A new studio album is due in the next few months, and then we might hear what the Splinter Group can do with some fresh material!The feel on this album is lovely, and regardless of the context in which it was made, it is wonderful. When you then consider where Peter has been, and how his powers as a musician are returning, it is little short of miraculous!Pete G"
Great Live Recording

"I have always loved the Fleetwood Mac sound from the early 70's but did not know of Peter Green until I saw him with the Splinter group in a small venue in Minneapolis, MN last September. I was blown away by his guitar playing and the ease at which he sings the blues. This double CD is a fine recording that takes me back to that live session in Minnesota every time I play it."
