Peter Green/Fleetwood Mac The Best Of Peter Green’ s Fleet wood Mac
This is the best way to get an overview of Peter’s playing during this period. Singles often didn’t feature on the albums, so this really does save a lot of work. I’ve already mentioned Need Your Love So Bad, Black Magic Woman and Albatross, but check out Oh Well for some surprisingly aggressive playing. This also features Peter’s guitar partner in crime Danny Kirwan.
Albert King Born Under a Bad Sign
Released in 1967, it’s highly likely that this album had some influence on Peter. Albert’s piercing tone and phrasing bears occasional similarities to Peter’s more extroverted moments – and classics such as the title track, Crosscut Saw and Oh, Pretty Woman were massively influential in the late 60s, when Peter was starting to make headway with his own career.
Gary Moore Blues For Greeny
Gary often comes up in the Headlines – and for good reason! Not only is this album an authentic and affectionate tribute to Peter, who had influenced his own playing so much, it is played on the very same ’59 Les Paul that Gary bought from Peter in the early 70s. There’s an extended version of Need Your Love So Bad, plus great versions of The Supernatural and Driftin’.
