Yeah, awful. Judas Priest should've never done that their way and thus inspiring others to copy their interpretation of such a haunting composition that could only have gotten the impact Peter Green gave.

From blog So Many Records, So Little Time by Kevin Ayers
http://www.somanyrecordssolittletime.com/?p=11551

To my recollection, this 1970 non-LP A side was Peter Green’s final, officially planned single with Fleetwood Mac. Almost feels like they were veering toward the sound de jour: those beginnings of heavy guitar arena rock, as Deep Purple and The Jeff Beck Group seemed to happily forge.

In fact, around the same time ‘The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown)’ was released, so too was Deep Purple’s ‘Black Night’. And given Peter Green’s imminent departure, that musical default could very well have been Fleetwood Mac’s path of least resistance.

Luckily, guitarist Jeremy Spencer’s love of late 50′s/early 60′s doo wop/ RnR influenced the direction for their next album, KILN HOUSE, and disaster was averted.

Technically, KILN HOUSE was an extension of ‘Somebody’s Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight’, the B side of a previous single, ‘Man Of The World’, their only ’69 release on Immediate Records, issued a year or less, between their periods on Blue Horizon Records and Warner Brothers/Reprise. The band even adopted the comical moniker Earl Vince & The Valiants for that side of the single’s label copy.

If ever you were lucky enough to see the Peter Green lineup pictured above on that beauty of a rarer than rare 7″ sleeve, you know how powerful these five were on a stage. Simply unforgettable.

Peter Green’s closing guitar solo twists and turns once again provided musical fear as only he could.

Not quite! It was Peter that was taking them in this direction- his composition - his lead playing -so by definition ,with his departure they were unlikely to go down this road(unless Mick had recruited Jeff Beck to replace him of course !!)
I love The Green M,-it's one of his most complex compositions , and if Peter had stayed with the band and produced more such compositions of this stature, I certainly wouldn't have objected.!
And let's not forget , he was capable of also composing the most sensitive melodic songs around this same period ,and if he had not quit ,I'm sure their music would not have gravitated solely towards proto heavy metal .

Well, probably the Judas Priest cover of Green Manalishi helped some people to learn about Peter’s music. One could expect that at least few were bound to be curious enough to check the music credits and look after the original composer.

And, of course, it probably provided some incoming for Peter in royalties form along the years. So it isn’t so bad of a thing, I guess.
