Default Alone with the Blues Review

Messenger Newspapers, Monday 9 November 2015

Kevin Bryan reviews a selection of this week's alternative CD releases.

Peter Green & The Original Fleetwood Mac, "Alone With The Blues" (Metro Select)- This proverbial curate's egg of an anthology is dominated by the erratic solo recordings that former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green made after his re-emergence on the music scene during the late seventies and early eighties, although the compilers have found space for a few Mac classics in the shape of "Man of the World," "The Green Manalishi" and live versions of "Oh Well" and the seductively memorable "Black Magic Woman." Green's later offerings pale rather badly by comparison, with "Tribal Dance" and "A Fool No More" emerging as the best of a patchy bunch.
