3.0 out of 5 stars Who's Really Playing Guitar? April 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This will most likely be a poorly written review. Several ideas thoughts, praises and criticisms in random order.
First, does Peter Green really play much guitar here? It's well documented that on albums like "In The Skies", Snowy White did most of the guitar work, mimicking Green's style. I don't know why, but hearing a solo and not knowing if it's Green or Watson really bothers me. It's like viewing a perfect copy of the Mona Lisa, once you find out it's not the original, all the beauty is gone. The guitar work here isn't bad, but it's far from spectacular. I really can't help but suspect most of the playing is Watson. I have no insight into Green's physical condition so I really do not want to comment on his playing any further...just don't expect anything even close to his work with Mayall or Mac. The album is a enjoyable listen if you start with low expectations. Very laid back, "groovin" blues played with workmanlike precision in the tradition John Mayall or Savoy Brown. The vocals can be a bit much at times; neither Watson or Green carries a tune extremely well. It's hard to take Green's vocals seriously on tracks like "Dangerous Man", especially after seeing him on the liner photos, but his vocals are very genuine and heartfelt. Again, no new music from the pen of Green himself. The fact that he is no longer writing "makes me wonder". To be fair, the newly reworked Fleetwood Mac tunes are some of the best on the album. The playing on these songs is slightly more inspired than the rest of the disc. If the old tunes were soaked in whiskey, the new versions come across as being drenched in fine wine. Much more mellow and refined than the more firey originals (but again I ask myself, who's playing the lead guitar?).

4.0 out of 5 stars peter's on top of his game... again February 27, 2003
By bob g.
Format:Audio CD
I could never get enough of peter green's sound and style like he had when he played with fleetwood mac.he was everything a blues guitarist should sound like, and the best of the british blues guitarists. and sadley we lost him to his demons for to many years, with only breif returns to the music scene. these returns produced some great music and some that was just o.k. then, he gave us his splinter group.they have always been good, but i have felt that people wanted to really hear what greenie could do, did he still have it? his muisic thus far was on the verge, just a taste of what we hoped he could still do. well with this effort i have to say, grenie gives it to us!!! the c.d is a strong efort with solid tracks that have solid beats and good blues foundations. his playing is fluid and his leads rich and emotional with traces of his olde style. the last five tracks are just phenomanal. i know they are mac tunes,but it's greenie! again playing HIS mac tunes the way you expect to hear him play.just check out black magic woman. thanks greenie, and welcome back! p.s. credit must be given to the band especially nigel watson who is great in his own right and does a wonderful job here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Post-Mac Effort to Date December 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Peter Green fan since his muse burned brightly in the glory days of the original Fleetwood Mac. He is a legendary figure to thousands of fans who wonder what might have been had he not gone off the deep end for an extended spell. We watched, we waited, and we hoped. His old band went through several profound transformations while he stayed gone, reappearing only briefly to record End of the Game, an album I consider one of the most boring and pointless I have ever heard. Then in the early eighties an album would appear on occasion that was putatively his. The first couple contained some pretty good songs mixed with a lot of garbage. Then he submerged once again next to resurface with a new band, Splinter Group.

I have followed Splinter Group since Green first joined, and I have to say that they get better with each successive recording. For that matter, Reaching the Cold 100 is Green's post-Mac effort to date!

There is a load of excellent blues here. The first five tunes are rather hard-driving and do well showcasing the talents of the Splinter Group. Must Be A Fool and Don't Walk Away are slow blues numbers with kind of a mid-70s feel about them. Then the mood changes entirely with a humorous Richard Thompsonesque song about being sucked into legal and financial problems.

The second half of the CD weakens considerably. I don't care at all for Spiritual Thief or Nice Girl Like You, and the renditions of the other originals are merely decent. Then the band gets back on track as it launches into the bonus tracks. If my praise of the first seven songs didn't have you clicking the buy button, then just maybe my praise of the last four will get you motivated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much cruise control tempers the ride January 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Splinter Group has forged a place for itself in the modern blues genre by grafting and molding its collective talents around the still fragile Peter Green, once the leading light of Fleetwood Mac during its formative (and some say best) years.
On each Splinter Group recording leading up to this one, it has been a pleasure to track the progress of the band and Mr. Green and wonder what the possibilities might be. But the progress seems halted on "Reaching the Cold 100," which is certainly a good but by no means great session.
There are plenty of fine songs here---17 tracks including four remakes from those early Fleetwood Mac days---but the weaker material (and I do not think that Nigel Watson should be unfairly blamed as the sole source of that material as some apparently do) tends to drag more than the stronger material tends to soar. When Mr. Green and Mr. Watson do rise to the occasion, the results are shimmering. Peter Stroud and Roger Cotton excel as composers and performers (bass and keyboards respectively) while Larry Tolfree keeps everything in check via the drums
The slick, crisp production is not really the culprit though folks whose sensibilities are more rooted in the old school of blues may wince a bit. Rather, everything runs a bit too smoothly, and some tracks, such as the clever Spiritual Thief, sound like theme music for sitcoms..
Rather than steer people away from this recording, I would suggest that they temper their expectations from great to good and give this CD a listen. Most will self-edit the tracks after a couple of listens, consigning at least one third of them to the scrap heap and dialing in a few favorites for repeated listenings.
One hopes the next effort from Splinter Group can elicit a bit more pedal to the metal and less cruise control.
