REVIEW:

This is the first recording to present the whole tribute to Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac, from Mick Fleetwood & Friends concert that happened on February 25th   2020 in London. The concert s recording will be officially released in October in audio/video format, however having a nice audio recording of the event certainly represents a great opportunity for fans that don’t want to wait that long, having been tempted by the YouTube videos which, however, don’t completely document the whole set. Legendary drummer Mick Fleetwood presented a house band featuring Fleetwood himself on drums along with Andy Fairweather Low on guitar, Dave Bronze on bass and Ricky Peterson on keyboards, Rick Vito and Jonny Lang on guitars, but he also enlisted an all star cast for a one-of-a-kind concert honouring the early years of Fleetwood Mac and its founder, Peter Green; the bill included Billy Gibbons, Peter Townshend, David Gilmour, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman and many others including Jeremy Spencer who played again with Fleetwood Mac 49 years after he left/abandoned the band on tour to join a religious cult. Conspicuous by their own absence were Peter Green himself and John McVie, whose absence was not explained. Legendary producer Glyn Johns joined as the executive sound producer who most likely will take care of producing the official release. Fleetwood said: ‘The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I am honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician’. So let s talk about this recording, which is excellent with all instruments well represented with a special notice to the bass which is often neglected in audience recordings, but not here where is clearly heard providing great dynamics to all performances. At this moment there is no artwork available but for the event advertising poster that is used as front cover. Mick Fleetwood introduced the 1st part of the concert and after a couple of tracks the first guest introduced is ZZ Top guitar player Billy Gibbons on Dr. Brown, soon joined by Aerosmith Steven Tyler and 86 years old John Mayall on Otis Rush All Your Love; for Stop Messin Around and Looking For Somebody Christine McVie joins the stage on keyboards. Noel Gallagher is the guest on Sandy Mary, Love That Burns and on acoustic guitar on The World Keeps Turning.

The 2nd part begins with Peter Townshend s introduction and guitar playing some licks from Who s Won t Get Fooled Again that some malicious observer had explained with the intention to highlight the similarity with Station Man; then comes Neil Finn (formerly lead singer for Split Enz and now member of Crowded House) singing on Man Of The World. Oh Well Part 1 follows, a song never intended as a duet but here played just by Billy Gibbons and Steven Tyler like the most natural call and response tune. Oh Well Part 2 comes after, a song that according Mick Fleetwood was never played live by the original Fleetwood Mac, but here it becomes the showplace for David Gilmour whose solos resonate throughout the hall with his sublime tone fills. Then comes Little Willie John s cover Need Your Love So Bad and the original Black Magic Woman more known for Santana s version. The night s surprise happens then on The Sky Is Crying which sees the reappearance of long lost Jeremy Spencer who sings and plays also on Willie Dixon I Can t Hold Out (a.k.a. Talk To Me Baby), as well as Bill Wyman on bass. Kirk Hammett from Metallica is featured on The Green Manalishi the last song recorded by Peter Green with the band, a song were he also sings, a first time occurrence and then David Gilmour returns for a poignant version of Albatross with his excellent lap steel guitar work. Everybody except for David Gilmour, Noel Gallagher and Jeremy Spencer hits then the stage fore the closing jam on the notes of Elmore James Shake Your Moneymaker. We can t wait for the official release, but meanwhile we can enjoy this one, one of the few audience recordings you won t get tired of listening to.
