    Liner Notes »

Filmed as part of their 2003 tour, playing to packed houses across the UK and Germany, this DVD is the final piece of evidence, if it were ever needed, that Peter Green is back, and back for good.

May 5th 1996 saw one of the most longed for comebacks in British music, when Peter took to the stage with Cozy Powell, Neil Murray and old friend Nigel Watson, at the Buxton Opera House, and the Splinter Group was launched. Since that day, despite the many obstacles thrown in their path, thanks in part to Watson's grim determination, but also to a greater degree to Green's own desire to play again, the shows have gone from strength to strength. With the current lineup of Larry Tolfree on drums, Peter Stround on Bass and Roger Cotton on Keyboards and Rhythm Guitar, plus Nigel contributing to additional lead guitar and vocal duties, the band have toured with such blues legends as BB King, Buddy Guy and John Mayall, as well as Peter playing with Carlos Santana and Peter Gabriel.

Peter's singing and playing is once again superb. His guitar playing carries so much feeling and is often far more inventive than most would dare. He blows the harp as if it is second nature, and his voice conveys everything from melancholy and mischievousness. Nigel contributes some fine work, with robust vocal performances such as "Little Red Rooster" but also with tenderness on "Need Your Love So Bad" which Peter can no longer sing as his voice is now so much lower (having fianlly broken according to Roger Cotton).

An Evening With Peter Green Splinter Group In Concert was a completely new idea for the band as it was a show of two sets. Opening with Peter singing Black Ace's "Hitchhiking Woman" accompanying himself on guitar, the band join in acoustically, with Roger on upright piano, Pete Stroud on acoustic bass, and Larry on possibly the smallest kit seen this side of 1933. With Peter and Nigel swapping vocal duties and resonator guitars, the acoustic set provides repertoire from the Robert Johnson Songbooks plus the most laid back version of one of the most laid back instrumentals ever, "Albatross". The second set opens as it means to go on - with a bang. A stomping electric set taking in blues classics, songs from the three original Splinter Group albums, "Reaching The Cold 100", "Time Traders" (both Eagle Records) and "Destiny Road" (Snapper), plus new takes on old Fleetwood Mac favorites - "Green Manalishi", "Black Magic Woman" and "Man Of The World".

2003 was another full year for the band, with a busy touring schedule, the release of "Reaching The Cold 100" and now the DVD. which will serve as a lasting testimonial, not only to Peter Green, but also the musicians and crew that have supported him so brilliantly, allowing us the opportunity to see a true legend at work once more.

Mike Howell

Peter is captured in full flight on guitar (including some sensational slide work), harmonica and vocals (singing with equal measures of melancholy and mischievousness). Backed superbly by the Splinter Group, Peter and Nigel Watson effortlessly blend old blues classics with new original material and of course some great interpretations of Peter's Fleetwood Mac catalog.

The two hour plus show, available on this DVD in 5.1 & DTS surround sound, is split into two sets; the first intimate and acoustic, the second a storming electric blues workout. Leaving no doubt that this comeback was well worth the wait!
