The 1970 Boston Tea Party era/thing is really the only record I've ever heard that even compares to the Allman Brothers twin guitar sound.

I was fortunate enough to have seen Peter Green at the Fillmore in SF.

RIP Greenie. The MAC certainly was a force back in the day. I could hear Duane and the boys sitting in with them and vice versa.

Saw some documentary recently related to Fleetwood Mac, can't even remember now what it was. One of the early band members said that Peter Green just took way too much acid and completely fried his brain. That's why the intense creativity of his youth never lasted. SAD. He could have gone down as one of the all-timers.

Amazing player. Early MAC was as top shelf as it gets.

Well, there is at least the 2/11/70 Fillmore East monster jam with Duane, Gregg, Berry and Butch, Green and Fleetwood along with the Dead.

Peter Green with John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers did "You Don't Love Me" a year before the ABB's first album:

The ABB did "Need Your Love So Bad" on 1979's Enlightened Rogues, but Peter Green had done it a decade before:

Didn't Twiggs' brother say on here once that the Allmans tried to reach out
to Greeny after Duane passed but the guitarist was simply off-the-radar at that
point? Peter was to me the greatest because he was one cat who could do it all.
Like the Allman Brothers Band, there are so many `what ifs' with Green that you
don't know where to start.

Thanks for posting that. Listening to it I think it's pretty obvious where ABB got their arrangement.

I hadn't heard that story before. Peter's output dropped off after the June '71 session for "B.B. King in London", which ties in with not being able to contact him after Duane's death. If you read or watch any interview with band members or associates they always reference the incident at the Munich commune in March '70 as a turning point in Peter's mental condition but IMHO Peter's decline started before this date if you listen to some of his lyrics although he was still functioning as a world class guitarist into mid-'71, although possibly the motivation had gone by that stage. What a great talent and what a tone. He will be sadly missed. I spent many a happy hour listening to him.

A video on Peter's guitars.

I've wondered before why Peter sold his prized and unique Les Paul to Gary Moore and apparently it was simply Gary wanted it so badly.

I always thought the Brothers arrangement of You Don't Love Me was closer to Junior Wells version. Not that it matters... all good stuff.

The Supernatural with Mayall is real nice too. RIP Peter Green.

Wow. I really enjoyed Peter's playing and talent.

A lot of reference here to his early career, but also of interest was when he came back to the music scene after something like two decades wasn't it when they put together the Splinter Group. Was a story about how his finger nails had grown so long they curled under themselves. He had to relearn how to play guitar.

I saw the Splinter Group in California. That band had another guitar player who was real fine too. Both he and Peter Green played Stratocasters and I was expecting to hear Greeny with a fat Les Paul tone. But he had a green Strat that sounded nice and his playing was very clean and slick. But the other Strat player seemed to play more solos than Greeny. I found a show from them and linked one song the other day.

Must've been Nigel Watson on the other guitar. He pretty clearly led the group. They put out a DVD and several albums which I should revisit.
