Two CD set. In the Summer of 1966, when Peter Green replaced Eric Clapton in John Mayall?s Bluesbreakers, nobody had heard of him. When he quit, exactly 12 months later, he was already being hailed as a potentially greater guitarist than Clapton. He promptly formed Fleetwood Mac with former Bluesbreakers John McVie & Mick Fleetwood and slide guitarist Jeremy Spencer, later adding a third guitarist, Danny Kirwan. This compilation concentrates on Mac?s Blues sessions, recorded between 1967-70, showcasing Peter Green?s talents as a singer, songwriter, and a simply devastating guitarist. It acts as a ?fly on the wall? documentary of the band as these are largely outtakes, alternate takes, and unreleased cuts from their first three albums. During this period Peter also guested on a couple of albums by the Brunning Sunflower Blues Band and made several home recordings with Duster Bennett, the veritable one-man Blues band. Several of these sides are included to complete a unique package. Castle. 2007
The good stuff

"This is the one Fleetwood Mac album that cover's Green's playing from all angles. It's lean on the "Jeremy Spencer plays Elmore James" cops which are a essential in the general scheme of things. But the party here is about Green. It's a great overview to his playing. The sound quality does vary (bass heavy at times), but the rewards are so great that it's hardly an issue."

"Peter Green is the best, this cd i bought even though i own all the individual records. It has many rare tracks but as a whole its like a best of and a great introduction. Very unique. A fan should own as well as a neofite, Peter Green could sing play and write the best of the brits --better then every other guitar god put together"
