Jan. 27, 2010
Premier Guitar recently conducted an interview with AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.


Premier Guitar: You were influenced by Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix specifically, but how did Peter Green fit into the equation?

Perry: A lot of English bands came to Boston before they hit New York back then. I guess they wanted to warm up first there. I had a friend who got a lot of free tickets to the Boston Tea Party club. FLEETWOOD MAC took up residence at the Tea Party for weeks on end, and I must have seen them thirty times or more. I saw them on great nights, terrible nights, nights when they were all drunk. Peter Green's style, attitude and sound really got to me. These guys didn't care about being rock stars. It was all about the music for them. I became a big fan of FLEETWOOD MAC. I guess you could say I was most influenced by the second wave of British bands, like THE YARDBIRDS, MAC and THE WHO.

Its music is the real allure for the band Girls
Although singer Christopher Owens has an interesting backstory
By ANDREW DANSBY Copyright 2010 Houston Chronicle
Jan. 27, 2010, 10:32AM


Christopher Owens' phone goes straight to voicemail. “I'm busy right now or something …” it says, capturing an off-kilter duality that makes his band — essentially a duo with guitarist Chet J.R. White — so interesting. The “or something” speaks to a ruffled slouchy vibe to Girls, in no small part due to Owens' often disheveled appearance and his openness in interviews to talk about drug use. Further, the band's debut album (called Album) isn't a polished thing. The recording has many of the bits of rough-hewn color that are the mark of an apartment-made masterpiece.

His first guitar, pictured on Album's cover, was given to him by Jeremy Spencer, a member of Children of God who was also a member of Fleetwood Mac for several years.

The Blue Horizon Records label is reactivated by the orchard and the warner music group.
January 27, 6:58 PMMusic Industry ExaminerMark Cope


Now this is cool…except what’s the deal with the catalog? One of THE premier blues labels, Blue Horizon Records, is about to be revived by Seymour Stein, the man that started Sire Records, and Richard Gottehrer, producer and founder and chief creative officer for The Orchard.The deal was announced on Jan. 25th at the MIDEM conference in Cannes. The revived U.K label will be based in the New York City office of The Orchard,

Blue Horizon Records was the UK’s most influential blues label. In but a short life span, in excess of seventy singles and sixty albums were released. Blue Horizon had more chart success than all other blues related labels could muster collectively. The name Blue Horizon has become synonymous with the blues boom of the '60s and '70s. Blue Horizon, which was distributed by CBS under exclusive contract, was in operation until the '70s. The label's repertoire is currently released by Sony Music Entertainment and the new label will not have access to the old catalog.

Blue Horizon Records was the home for blues artists like Otis Spann, The Fleetwood Mac Blues Band (awesome stuff), Chickenshack (Christine Perfect (McVie)’s first band), Champion Jack Dupree, Bukka White, Mississippi Joe Callicot & Furry Lewis, Eddie Boyd (Get the “Dust My Broom” album), Ansley Dunbar, Elmore James, and the amazing “Fleetwood Mac In Chicago.”

It’s too bad that the new Blue Horizon Records won’t have access to the catalog since this is a very special label. The recordings that Fleetwood Mac released were all stellar and heavily blues oriented. The band included Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green, and Jeremy Spencer. One will find the original version of the Santana hit, “Black Magic Woman,” which was written by Green. Along with the classic song “Albatross,” also penned by Green. If you haven’t yet discovered Peter Green, find the Blue Horizon recordings or any 60’s Fleetwood Mac albums as quick as possible and you will realize what a great guitar player he is and how tight this band was to play the blues. British record producer Mike Vernon founded the original Blue Horizon company. Sire later took a 50% stake and went on to take control of the company, although Sony has the catalog.

Seymore Stein, VP of Warner Bros. Records, joined Gottehrer in Cannes for the announcement. Gottehrer has stated that the label will look for new talent to distribute through The Orchard, while Warner Music Group will have the opportunity to participate in releases in Europe and the U.K. Physical product will be released "where necessary" but the label will initially focus on digital releases, on a global basis. It has not announced any band signings yet. "The real reason for doing this is both Seymour and I want to get back to functioning in a creative way (together) and discovering and working with artists," Gottehrer told Billboardbiz.com. He added, "we both work at great companies" (Warner Music Group and The Orchard). WMG will "have the opportunity to step in and bring it to a wider audience," says Gottehrer of Blue Horizon signings, although the major label group has no equity stake or formal relationship with the label. Again, it's too bad that they didn't get the catalog.

FRIDAY, Jan. 29, 2010

Forty years ago this weekend, the Grateful Dead and Fleetwood Mac co-headlined the opening of a concert venue at 1820 Tchoupitoulas Street called A Warehouse. By the standards of today, the 1850s-era cotton and coffee warehouse’s brick walls, wooden support columns and cement floor represented an especially raw, no-frills space. But over its 12 year run, the Warehouse endeared itself to a generation of New Orleanians with dozens of landmark performances, from early ZZ Top and Allman Brothers gigs to the final performance of The Doors.

The building was demolished long ago, but fond memories remain. Tonight and Saturday, the far more luxurious Harrah’s New Orleans Theatre hosts a celebration of the Warehouse’s 40th anniversary. An all-star band of locals — including keyboardist Larry Sieberth, guitarists Jimmy Robinson and Cranston Clements, bassist Matt Perrine and drummer Doug Belote — will perform music by Talking Heads, the Who, Rod Stewart, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Elton John, Chicago, Foghat and other acts that played the Warehouse. A preview of an upcoming documentary about the Warehouse precedes the show.

The strings were most likely recorded sometime in May, while the band was out of the country (think Vernon was concerned about Green's reaction? - the single was first released on July fifth, 1968

Vernon re-released it a year later, but more importantly, remixed it -
With all of the previously unreleased material on the Blue Horizon box set, it seems petty to complain about what was missing, but I think it's a shame that no room could be found for either the original or remixed versions of the single -

the remix can be heard on "The Blue Horizon Story Vol. 1" and actually highlights the string section -

It is not just a matter of bringing the strings up in the mix; they are more prominent because the horns and organ have been mixed way down. The fog horn drone of the saxophones and the low sustained organ notes are no longer heard during the intro and are barely discernable through the bulk of the number; their limited use makes them far more effective when they are heard, wafting up to underscore a line or heighten an emotion before dissolving back into the mix.

While the use of the strings will always be a bone of contention, their effectiveness is best heard on the third stanza of this version, where rather than sounding like lead slabs being applied to the number, they now supply the wind to lift Green’s vocal, and the number itself, allowing them to soar.

Bringing down the horns and organ has the effect of clearing the soot and sludge that obscured the number, allowing the listener to hear it as if for the first time.

I would have liked to have heard this mix applied to the full length version available on the box set.

I don't mean to sound rude in any way, shape or form, and I don't want this to be seen as an attack because that is not the spirit in which my comment is made, but I honestly fail to see why this particular post is really relevant.

Early Fleetwood Mac Live

Originally posted on August 19, 2008

Fleetwood Mac. They are a household word (or, actually two words). Perhaps no band except the Stones has had such a long and varied history, from a heavily musically endowed blues band to rock titans.

There is a CD lurking around, cheap if you can find it, that documents the original band rather well. Fleetwood Mac Live—Early Recordings (MBH) does not list the personnel, date or location of the recording on the disk, and the sound quality is not first rate, but it shows off the early incarnation at their raw best. This is electric blues at the core, and what sounds like Peter Green is doing some great lead work. It is nice to hear and time has been kind to this lineup. Nothing sounds dated.

Default In case you don't already know this...

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac 1969 - When John Mayall's Bluesbreakers lost Eric Clapton, Mayall said he found a guy who was better to replace him: Peter Green. Peter Green then founded and named Fleetwood Mac after his rhythym section he took from the Bluesbreakers: Mic Fleetwood & John McVie. After outselling the Beatles at the time, he joined a commune, started taking acid, and wanted to give all of Fleetwood Mac's money to charity. He then disappeared from the band.

Playing at the Marquee shortly once, in 1963 was the man destined to become the Godfather of British Blues… John Mayall…. John’s famous band, The BluesBreakers went onto fame and fortune as many musicians joined and left in quite a procession over the next few years. John celebrated his 70th Birthday a couple of years ago and is enjoying plus ever. This offers deceive the notion that life is over at forty and its all downhill from there on. The list of John’s protégées is a who’s who of the music Business; a good proportion of whom are still playing today. John McVie, co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood, Jack Bruce of Cream, Eric “Slowhand” Clapton, Peter Green, Aynsley Dunbar, Mick Taylor and many more.

Default Dear Vivfox, I like what you do, Honest!

Maybe I am not being understood

Vivfox is doing a good thing, in my opinion.
I really am just going to say this once more and you will never hear about this from me again

never

I do not believe in the theory that " Any publicity is good publicity as long as they get your name right.

If I know something is being disseminated that is wrong, I have a duty as an individual to at least say it is wrong.
I did not go out and look for people trashing Peter Green. It found me

So should I just say nothing?

This would be a mighty bland website, Maybe thats what people want

.....what do you think?

Default strings on need your love so bad

Truth is Peter hated them too. It was put out when BBKing did The Thrill is gone. Mickey Baker was called in to do this after it was recorded
check out the reissue of "Pius Bird Of Good Omen" to hear the way Peter heard it
