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’.
