Peter Green Splinter Group – Blues Don’t Change
Eagle Records


Rating: B+

Peter Green is a true master of the blues. Most famous for his induction into the Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac, and for being that guy who went crazy and walked away from music, Green is making up for lost time on Blues Don’t Change.

Everyone talks about his splendid guitar tone – and it is splendid – but his voice is aging perfectly for the Blues. He sounds so damn cool during this album that you melt like butter just listening to him croon. Of course, the music doesn’t suck either. In fact, it’s a long way from suck. More like it is brilliant. Green and his Splinter Band let loose on 11 classic blues tunes making this one of those albums that you just can’t seem to quit listening to.

“Crawlin’ King Snake,” “Honey Bee,” “I Believe My Time Ain’t Long,” “Little Red Rooster” and “Blues Don’t Change” may be the best songs on the album, but the others are not lagging far behind.

If you love smooth Blues played by a master of the genre then look no further than the new release from Peter Green.
