VA - Rattlesnake Guitar, The Music Of Peter Green [1995] (2 x CD's)


VA - Rattlesnake Guitar, The Music Of Peter Green [1995] (2 x CD's)

This double C.D. collection of Peter Green covers by various artists from the U.K. and America is superb. All the players do justice to his playing and his inspiration. This is not just another tribute album its is simply a great one. All tunes are played with passion and one could almost see the smiles passed between the musicans as they layed down there tracks in the studio.  This upbeat set has you dancing in your seat, and pounding the pavement on walks. Peter Green was a musical treasure and these musicians paid him the highest respect through their outstanding nimbleness!!  Well worth the money for the Rory tracks alone. Some really good stuff on here. If you like bluesy guitar you'll like this. (Amazon)

This is a fantastic set. Should not be missed.

  1. Just gettin' to this one.. Being a fan of good blues guitar (amongst many things), I'm thinking this will be good. There's definitely a bunch of talent involved.. Thanks!

    1. Hi mrRadio,
      This is a great set and I have no doubt you will enjoy much here. I really enjoy the version of Rattlesnake Shake. The whole album is great.
