First Time On Vinyl!
Peter Green with Nigel Watson & The Splinter Group perform songs composed by legendary blues artist Robert Johnson.
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 1990s 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. 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 edition of Peter Green's 'The Robert Johnson Songbook' is available as an LP for the first time, pressed on 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl in single packaging including a 2-page insert with sleeve notes and new artwork.
