CD Reviews

Whatcha gonna find in Peter Green's Whatcha Gonna do
Steven H. Dymond | Englewood, CO USA | 07/20/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While I am a great fan of Mr. Green's guitar work, including the splinter group work, I bought this work, an expensive Japanese CD, in hopes of hearing his genius. I was somewhat disappointed with this album. This is not an energetic and sparkling Peter Green. His guitar work is subdued, and I believe he is using a stratocaster instead of his famous Les Paul. Further his singing reflects an older and more graveley voiced Peter Green. With the exceptions of Last Train, Give me back my freedom, and the final track, Trying to hit my head, I found this album lacklustre. This may in fact be due to compositions in large part not by Peter Green."

"I've forgotten several of this album's songs despite having heard them all many times. But four songs stand out in my mind as not only among the best things Green has ever done, vocally and instrumentally, but among the bluest songs I've ever heard.'Got to See Her Tonight' is bitterness itself, to a rock-reggae beat. 'The Promised Land' may be Green's most moving vocal altogether (along with 'Jumping at Shadows'), risking heartbreak for hope. 'Lost My Love' is a subtly dynamic slow blues, with two superb solos that refer to Albert King (a first for Green, as far as I can tell). And then there's 'Last Train to San Antone.' I've never heard a more architectural guitar solo. Green plays low and achieves remarkable heights, a combination of courtesan and church. Three climaxes, each one distinct, all shiveringly understated.Even the (very) indifferent songs are rhythmically interesting, at least in terms of Green's career. There's more saxophone and syncopation here than on any other album he's been associated with. "Whacha Gonna Do?"--listen closely, perhaps."
