This was new to me last week, quite a rarity. Listen to PG go!
That was quite nice.
I actually heard his playing on Hard Road before I hear 'God'. Hard to follow 'God' but he did quite well. Love Fleetwood Mac in Chicago...'Watch Out'.
A thing of beauty
really, some GREAT Peter Green here
Cool short hair pics of him I hadn't seen before in that clip.
That's IT, what British blues guitar playing is all about, simply FANTASTIC.
Phrasing, timing, vibrato, EVERYTHING is great and effortless.
I WANT that TONE....
'Orrible recording but terrific performance. Even when he's just ripping it, Peter Green is a textbook exercise in less being so much more.
Peter Green was the FINEST Blues player from across the pond.
What makes PG and John Mayall's version my favourite version is the bass and drums - no walking bass or anything fancy - just drive! Very ZZ Top.
The tone on that was amazing.
PG ripping it up! Thank you for sharing.
That would be his LP through the block-lettered Marshall JTM45 that's in some of the photos on that clip, I reckon.
Glad you enjoyed it! I never thought I'd hear a live recording from that era. His playing is great for someone so young, he's obviously hearing it in his head first.
Five live Mayall with Peter Green recordings were made, by Tom Huissen, in 1967. Two of these recordings have been released.
I have two of these recordings (Manor House and Marquee Tape) and Peter Green's playing has never been better. These were recorded on a Sanyo mono tape deck so the quality is not spectacular. You can email Tom for more info...
The sound of a young Londoner. Full of attitude and confidence.
The poster on the wall behind the band says it all, what a line- up...
Greenie knocked " God " off from his pedistal!
Old thread but ... IMO Peter Green stomped da rump of Clapton in every possible way. Beautiful playing! :)
I don't know if I remembered to breath the first time I listened to this one. Listen to how he drives from one brilliant idea to the next: each chorus seems better than the last.
Thanks! I've been listening to Live in Boston Remastered, some great stuff there for Peter Green fans.
