CD Reviews

Two great blues instrumentalists at the peak of their powers
David Tepper (jdtg33a@prodigy.com) | San Francisco, CA | 06/03/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD, recorded in 1969, captures two great blues instrumentalists, pianist Otis Spann of Muddy Waters' Chicago blues band and guitarist Peter Green of the original Fleetwood Mac, at the hight of their considerable powers. Otis Spann, perhaps THE premier blues pianist of all time, handles the vocals on all tracks, but the beauty of this record is the instrumental interplay between Spann and British blues guitarist Peter Green, a founding member of the original Fleetwood Mac band. While the tracks have a relaxed, jam session feel to them, the playing is anything but sloppy. Green's tone and phrasing are just wonderful."
A Spann and Green great
Bob Davis | Christchurch New Zealand | 03/01/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As admirer of Otis Spann and Peter Green, to find this album was such a pleasure. Spann is his usual constant, but Peter Green show how good a blues guitarist he was. He plays with such simplicity but has so much feeling in what is played. Green can play one note and have so much more effect that some modern guitairists who try to play at the speed of light."
Spann and Green - Match made in Blues Heaven
Boston Bluesman | Boston, MA USA | 10/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love Otis Spann. Both his solo work and as a member of Muddy Water's band. This album sees Spann hooking up with the original Fleetwood Mac line up san their drummer (what was his name?). Otis' piano nicely compliments Peter Green's guitar, which is a little more restrained then usual on this album. This album features some great rockin' tunes and as well as some excellent slow blues like 'Ain't Nobody's Business'.

Don't be put off by the strange album cover. This is a great, great blue album. Also check out Fleetwood Mac's Engliash Rose for more great Peter Green material."
