Description

MID-PRICE CD EDITION OF THE ORIGINAL FLEETWOOD MAC GUITARIST'S AWARD-WINNING BLUES ALBUM FEATURING NEW ARTWORK


Peter Green is widely regarded as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. His virtuoso blues playing was an integral part of the sound of the original Fleetwood Mac, which he founded in 1967, and his tortured lead placed him on a par with legends such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. In the early '70s, Green left the band and he was to spend much of the next three decades in the wilderness, battling a number of health issues.

He re-emerged in the late 1990's performing with the Peter Green Splinter Group, and the second album of his remarkable revival, 'The Robert Johnson Songbook', is one of the greatest classic blues records and was the first British album to win the prestigious WC Handy Award. It was released in the same year that Green was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, on the 18th May - almost 20 years to the day before the release of this celebratory version, but still sounds as timeless and as important now as it did back then. The music features 16 exquisitely heart-breaking performances of the best Johnson originals, with Green on lead guitar, harmonica and vocals, plus support from Nigel Watson, Roger Cotton, Larry Tolfree, Neil Murray and guest Paul Rodgers.

This mid-price CD edition of Peter Green's 'The Robert Johnson Songbook' is presented in digipack packaging featuring sleeve notes and new artwork.
