Blues Don’t Change


It's been 45 years since Peter Green formed Fleetwood Mac after leaving John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. His status as a guitar legend is foremost among fans in a number of genres.

Enigmatic and mysterious, his music and his life have been dissected by legions of critics, fans, and musicians alike, who will no doubt be thrilled with the reissue of the 2001 recording Blues Don’t  Change ,from the Peter Green Splinter Group. This eleven song collection of straight-ahead blues covers was only available at the groups’ shows and online until the group disbanded in 2004. The album was conceived as a way to pay homage to the blues masters who inspired them/

Blues Don’t  Change was recorded live off the floor with minimal production, creating a raw feel. The Splinter Group  sound like a group of old friends jamming  on this collection of venerable classics as "Crawlin' King Snake," "Little Red Rooster," "Honest I Do," "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out."  Green’s vocals are weathered and slightly out of key, backed by playing that is strictly no frills, thus creating the authentic blues experience only veteran musicians of this caliber could produce.
