Customer Reviews

Hard Road

This was a seminal album of the 60s that introduced Peter Green to the British blues fans of the time, and eventually beyond. It still has that magic flavour that raises the hair on the back of one's neck. (not much left on the head now). For me The Stumble is the ultimate exploration in sustain that required replay after replay. "Brilliant stuff".

WILL MAKE YOU DOUBT THAT SUCH A GUITARIST EXISTED.

I HAD NOT PLAYED THIS TRACK FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS OR SO.WHEN I BOUGHT THE CD VERSION IT GAVE ME SUCH A HIGH THAT I HAD TO SIT DOWN,I AM TALKING ABOUT TRACK 13.SOMEDAY AFTER A WHILE.JUST LISTEN FOR GOD'S SAKE CAN YOU BELEIVE THAT PETER GREEN COULD PLAY LIKE THAT? BUY IT JUST FOR THAT ALONE AND THEN PLAY IT EVERY DAY LIKE I DO.

I don't remember it being THIS good

Peter Green lived in Eric Clapton's shadow a bit when this album came out. In no way do I wish to diminish the "Beano" album but whilst Green acquited himself really well I had forgotten just how good he was. He had the feel, technique and the tone to be a decent replacement for the irreplaceable but his tone and use of minor keys was starting to establish itself here. From "Supernatural" here to "I loved another woman" on the first Fleetwood Mac album to "Man of the world" at the top of the charts is almost seamless and it's great to hear him work out on "The Stumble" which he still does live today. I wonder how Mayall feels when his great bands and seminal albums are dissected for their guitarist's contributions and nothing is said about his contribution! His organ and harmonica playing and arranging skill marks him out from the other blues bands of the time such as Chicken Shack and Savoy Brown. I suspect his music will live not just because he could spot the best guitarists on the planet at the time. Mick Taylor..............? About 15 when this was made!

As the elder statesman of British blues, it is John Mayall's lot to be more renowned as a bandleader and mentor than as a performer in his own right. Throughout the '60s, his band, the Bluesbreakers, acted as a finishing school for the leading British blues-rock musicians of the era. Guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor joined his band in a remarkable succession in the mid-'60s, honing their chops with Mayall before going on to join Cream, Fleetwood Mac, and the Rolling Stones, respectively....
