Editorial Reviews

Peter Green was discovered by John Mayall and was lead guitarist in the late 60 s Bluesbreakers before leaving to form Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac with Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. After well documented health problems, Green reappeared in the mid 90's, much changed but with his talent and love of the blues still intact, as an integral part of Peter Green Splinter Group. Blues Don't Change is an album of tracks that inspired Peter Green and the other Splinter Group members to start playing the blues in the first place. These are songs originally made famous by such blues greats as B.B. King, Willie Dixon, Albert King, John Lee Hooker and Freddie King among others. This album, recorded in 2001, was originally made available at only via the band's website and at concerts but is now being generally released for the first time. / Line-up: Peter Green Guitar, Vocals; Nigel Watson Guitar, Vocals; Larry Tolfree Drums; Roger Cotton Keyboards; Pete Stroud Bass

I just got this today & I am glad I did.
Kenneth E. Macalister Jr.
This is a very good album of great blues from a very influential, yet often overlooked, guitarist and vocalist.

Doing old blues standards with a very good band, I really like the sound and feeling of the disc.

This is a 2012 commercial reissue of an album recorded in 2000 and available initially as a limited item on the Splinter Group website. It consists of eleven well worn classic blues standards which clock in at a total playing time of 46.6 minutes.

The Splinter Group, which is currently on a extended hiatus, consists of Peter Green(gtr,vocals),Nigel Watson(gtr.,vocals),Larry Tolfee(drums), Roger Cotton(keyboards) and Peter Stroud(bass). These British musicians have approximately 150 years of combined experience in performing and recording the blues.

Peter and Nigel co founded the group in the early nineties and to date have released nine albums of high quality blues recordings.

Obviously, Peter is the most well known artist. He co founded Fleetwood Mac in the sixties and was instrumental in elevating that band to wide spread critical and commercial acclaim. His brilliant guitar playing, soulful vocals and flawless writing skills resulted in a series of international hit records. A partial list of these classics include," Black Magic Woman", "Albatross", "Oh Well" and "Man of the World". In fact, during that period the band was billed as Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. He chose to depart the band in 1970 following a dispute over future creative direction.

The next two decades, Peter was in and out of the music scene. At times, playing small clubs and creating a few solo albums which were virtually ignored by the critics and general public. 1990 proved a significant milestone, when his friend Nigel Watson persuaded Peter to co found a premier musical organization dedicated to the Blues. The rest is history.

It should also be known that the other members of the Splinter Group retain stellar British Blues pedigrees.

I just got this today & I am glad I did. Out of all of Peter Green's Splinter Group recordings this one really has some punch to it & Peter Green really seems enthused playing these old blues covers. Funny thing is this cd was never an official Splinter Group release. As stated in the liner notes it was only available at Splinter Group concerts & at the now defunct Peter Green Splinter Group website. To all Peter Green fans who haven't heard this, grab it quick if you can find a copy. It's well worth hunting down.

Song List:
"I Believe My Time Ain't Long"
"Take Out Some Insurance"
"When It All Comes Down"
"Honey Bee"
"Little Red Rooster"
"Don't Start Me Talking"
"Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out"
"Help Me Through The Day"
"Honest I Do"
"Blues Don't Change"
"Crawlin' King Snake"

It's hard to believe that it's been forty-five years since Peter Green formed Fleetwood Mac after leaving John Mayall's Bluesbreakers where he served as Eric Clapton's replacement in 1966. During and since that time, Green has made a reputation for himself as a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and is considered by many to be "the best white blues guitarist ever".

In 1996, Green formed The Peter Green Splinter Group and has 10 albums to its credit. In 2001, Peter and the band recorded Blues Don't Change and, until now, it was only sold at their shows and through their website. Eagle Rock Entertainment is now offering this great album of classics commercially. The 11-track album covers great blues tunes by Willie Dixon; John Lee Hooker; Albert, BB and Freddie King; and Jimmy Reed, among others.

Green is joined by Nigel Watson on guitar and vocals, Pete Stroud on bass, Roger Cotton on keyboards, and Larry Tolfree on drums. Together, the punch out eleven great blues classics that are worth multiple slaps of the repeat button for each and every tune. Boomerocity especially loved I Believe My Time Ain't Long, Little Red Rooster, Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out and Help Me Through the Day.
If you love great blues - and great blues classics - then you'll definitely want The Peter Green Splinter Group's Blues Don't Change. You'll learn very quickly that they don't.

So the editorial blurb gives us the story of Blues Don't Change: formerly available only at Splinter Group concerts and via the band's website, it has finally been released to the general public. Good thing, there is some fine blues here.
Several years ago when I was cruising amazon looking for some new Peter Green, this album appeared and at a good price. I ordered it immediately but wound up disappointed as amazon soon sent me a message that it was no longer available (after one week) and they had no idea when it would be restocked. I have wondered about this album and thought about that message occasionally over the last couple of years while perusing the listings and now finally the missing album has made a reappearance. I don't know what the story is about the disappearing act, but it would have been a shame if this recording had been shelved for good.
While I am not entirely thrilled about every song, there are flashes of magnificence throughout. The album starts out well enough, but in my view doesn't really pick up steam until the fifth cut. Then it takes off! My favorites are Take Out Some Insurance, the much-covered Little Red Rooster, Don't Start Me Talking, the slow-burning Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out, and a searing Help Me Through the Day.
The CD comes with an attractive insert bearing minimal album information and a few pictures of the musicians. Whether you have been a fan since Green's days with John Mayall and Fleetwood Mac, or have just recently come to appreciate his talent, Blues Don't Change is an album you don't want to miss.
