a most lyrical guitarist, far superior to all of his British mates (with the possible exception of Jeff Beck). author of many touching songs with his F-Macs, and of a brave experimental album, before his mind went astray.

I think one reason Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac didn't perhaps get their due was their early rigid adherence to the blues. Their first self-titled album, and then "Mr. Wonderful" set their template as a blues bar band par excellence, supporting many of the legit blues masters that were rediscovered in the '60s (e.g., Mac's "Blues Jam In Chicago.") When these bands broke away from old standbys (like Elmore James' "Shake Your Money Maker") and stretched out with their own compositions, that's when the magic took hold. Bands like Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack and Groundhogs were facing similar conundrums, in my opinion: Stick with being a generic back-up blues band, or put their faith in something authentic and new?
