Peter Green - The Anthology (4 CD Set) Release 27 October 2008


This is an exciting 64-track, 4-CD retrospective telling the story of a British guitar legend and blues institution.

The set contains essential Peter Green music drawn from all stages of his career. From his first tentative recordings with the likes of Peter Bardens and John Mayall, it moves through the genesis of Fleetwood Mac and the band's many classic blues recordings and rock fusion chart hits - titles like the utterly unique 'Albatross', 'Oh Well' and the ever haunting 'Man Of The World' - are all included, as is the best of his later solo work and Splinter Group recordings.

Through many personal transformations and struggles, Peter Green has lived the blues he so obviously fell in love with at a young age. The body of his work so far is one of the most impressive legacies in the genre and this is his first complete career overview.

It also represents the first time that Peter Green himself has had an active involvement in such a project, working closely with Salvo and compiler John Crosby, helping to make this set the ultimate Peter Green collection - a special release befitting a special musician and songwriter who is rightly one of the most revered blues guitarists of all time.
