RHINO put this lil' video out back in '94(6?)chronicling the years peter green led the group.
i've read the other reviews and while some people grow tired of the lip synching found throughout this video i still find it interesting and very much enjoyable.
here is my run-down of the contents of this video:
begins with a very quick spoken summation of the years peter led the group while the song black magic woman plays in the background and various photo's and home movies are shown.
a black and white clip follows with alan price (ex-animals organist,then, apparently with his own television variety show)introducing the pre-kirwin formation of the group performing two songs, both lip synched(the dreaded lip synch!)but both peter and jeremy spencer having quite a frolicking time as jeremy mouths the vocals for heartbeat like a hammer and shake your moneymaker that were actually sung on record by peter. i love this clip because jeremy is loving pretending to sing the peter vocals and over to his left, looming in the foreground when the camera cuts to a full band shot, peter is all smiles and grins and even though the guitars are not plugged in, pete is wrapping his fingers and wrist around that neck like honey on a warm day. not sure what that means but, to watch the master, green, slide around on his guitar so effortlessly and fluidly is a joy to behold. and believe me, the man is all smiles-happy and confident.
this clip alone makes it worth it for me.
next up is a black and white clip three song mini-concert live before a real audience (you can hear a pin drop between songs-oh those were the days!).
first song sung by jeremy. yes, live, not lip synched. jeremy sings 'i'm worried' while getting in some slide licks on the side.

This is the early fleetwood mac, so if you are a Peter Green fan this is a must. The only problem is that not all the songs that are advertised in the back of the video ara actually played, no black magic woman, stop messing round or green manalishi performances here, just collages. But there are also some very good live performances of oh well, world keep on turning, and like crying like dying. And some lip-synch as well in albatross and man of the world. But overall is great.

Peter Green looked oh so uncomfortable throughout this video of mostly Milli Vanilli Mac performances from early European TV shows. One wonderful exception is the band's appearance on Hugh Heffner's "Playboy At Night" TV show. Heff makes incredibly vacuous "conversation" with someone at the mansion while segueing into an intro of the band. The camera pans to the Mac surrounded by Bunnies, Peter Green in his "Jesus" attire, grinning from ear to ear as they launch into..."Rattlesnake Shake"! Early reality TV! Surreal!
This is definitely for Peter Green Mac fans. I can't imagine casual viewers enjoying much of this. But, I'm a fan and I did despite the lip-synching and brevity of the entire product.

As a long time Fleetwood Mac fan I was thoroughly impressed with this video. How often do you get to see what I refer to as "no machine" unsynthisized electric blues from the original Britain blues heroes? For you folks that are wise enough to view this, check out the mastery of John McVie on his bass guitar. If watching Danny Kirwan play does not tell you that this band was way before their time then there is no hope for your music eticate. I almost took away half of a star after watching their performance of Albatross and Mick Fleetwood missing the drums and cymbols as he played, but I took into consideration the technology that was involved and the lack of it. There is no mistaken that these guys would be able to tear the roof off the place in a live concert. I for one wish that this type of raw energy combined with musical genius was more prevelant today.

This is the only video (story) recording during Peter Green's playing days that I know. There are some good YouTube videos of individual songs but this video is more comprehensive. The reason I bought it was just to have it. I think Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac in 1969 and very early 1970 was the finest rock n' roll/blues band that existed, maybe better than anyone since. (With the Allman Bros. a close second at the time). PG's FM played in Boston one night when the Stones also played at another venue. Fleetwood Mac outdrew the Stones. PG's FM sold more records in 1969 than the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined.
Peter Green played with so much soul and feel, oh he could play fast, but it's said that he never wasted a note.

This dvd is dfinetily a must, for anybody who's into the british blues boom, of the late '60's. Leaded by probably the most emotional electric guitarist ever to handle a Gibson Les Paul. Nobody played with such finesse and fluidity, as Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac, in their heyday! And it's a disaster to this kind of music that Peter Green gave up his life, in the way he did. However, having read his biograph, I can see that. Anyway, for anyone who's into english blues, this dvd is a wise investment! In wiew of the technical level at the time, the sound and picture isn't perfect on all tracks, but be that as it may. This dvd's real value are as a timepiece!
