Recorded at Roundel Stdios.

Over the past six years we have seen some amazing support from a great bunch of loyal fans. We felt the time was right to acknowledge that support and so recorded this exclusive collection (that is only available at the gigs and on the band's website) of some of Peter's and our favourite blues music.

Sharing Peter's journey is a great and enjoyable experience for all of us and although Peter is reluctant to keep going back to the past, we felt the time was right to step back and pay homage to those artists and songs that made us play this music in the first place.

The album was recorded with minimal rehearsal or production that is sometimes expected on studio albums today. We put the Splinter Group 'sound' to them and as each track came alive we realised that we were on the way to recording a very enjoyable collection of songs from the masters of the blues realm.

From the three Kings (B.B., Albert and Freddie) to the Grand Master, John Lee, the music and in some cases their spirits will live on through Peter and the group. We will always be out there bringing the blues "from the Mississippi Delta to the Free Trade Hall". For those who have been asking to hear some new "old" tunes or those who we have been privileged in introducing to the blues, we hope this CD will show that the "Blues Don't Change" - Peter Green Splinter Group Sept. 2001

Recommended, but only to a certain audience
Review written by John Fitzgerald, November 14th, 2004

Though not terribly different from "The Robert Johnson songbook" & "Hotfoot powder", "Blues don't change" has slightly more electricity to it which makes for a more "band" sound than the sparse arrangements that were enclosed on those two Robert Johnson covers albums. Perhaps this is a little bit more colorful due to the fact that the Splinter Group this time out have opted to choose their material from different sources rather than just sticking to Johnson's cannon as, although not new to us Mac fans, the straightforward, very familiar by now Elmore James riff kicks off the album with "I believe my time ain't long" (which we know was well covered by Jeremy Spencer under various banners) but strangely pleasant to hear (as it's a nice change of pace from the RJ stuff we are used to hearing from Peter these days) and my personal favorite on the album, the B B King-"The thrill is gone" styled extended piece "Help me through the day". We don't escape the Robert Johnson feel altogether though, check out the beginning to "Take out some insurance". For those of you who know the tunes on "Hotfoot powder", sound familiar?! However, there are other plusses like the fact that Peter himself takes all of the lead vocals on all songs here except two ("Little red rooster" & "Nobody knows you when you're down and out"). In the end, I'm going to recommend this disc simply for those who haven't heard the Robert Johnson tribute platters and are interested in investigating them should probably start here. This, depending on how you feel, may start you on a good path in delving into those recordings or it may save you the trip back to the record seller to purchase those as this may well cover your appetite in this musical line.
