Last week I went to a CD sale and found Peter Green. Yeah this is the guy who ruled the roost with John Mayall and then on to Fleetwood Mac and then various insane asylums. This CD is Peter Green Splinter Group (1997)and it hasn't left my Cd player in the last week. Then I discovered that he has been putting out stuff with this group for 8 years now. I have ordered at least three more offerings and right now i'm listening to his rendition of The Robert Johnson Songbook. Go to Amazon and look up used CD's of Peter Green and the Splinter Group and you won't be disapointed. A tip on the Robert Johnson Songbook. It was put out WITH Hotfoot Powder in one double CD and you can save at least a fin going that route and buying it that way used. People might tell you it isn't Peter playing the guitar on some of these cuts but who cares. He sings and plays harp too. I mean I saw Johnny Winter in his heroin days when Rick Derringer was playing lead and it didn't kill the buzz. If you like blues go for it.
