Reviewer: Anonymous, guitarist - tasmania January 02, 2006 he is a great man,, good songs from the grave ( the great robert johnson)
just like ERIC CLAPTON and KEITH RICHARD he is influenced by the great delta king.
Songs once in a while, but not all at once
Reviewer: John Fitzgerald, Human resources staff database assistant April 04, 2001 What seems to be Peter's new found admiration for Robert Johnson is explored here as he
delves into the legendary bluesmans catalogue covering more than half of his numbers.
It's very interesting to listen to the version of "Ramblin' on my mind" here next to Eric
Clapton's rendition from the "Bluesbreakers" album and other highlights for me are
Green's faithful run throughs of such staples as "Terraplane blues", "Love in vain blues" &
"Walkin' blues". However, admittedly the best moment for me was the closing "Sweet
home Chicago" with the great Paul Rodgers guesting on vocals to superb effect.
Unfortunately though, this is a release that unless you're a die hard Johnson aficionado,
one is better off listening to songs from it once in a while than all in one sitting as it can
get rather stale sounding after a while especially those of us who yearn for the original
talent that the great Green has within and hopefully, we'll see it someday soon once again.
