    The one I played after his death was announced yesterday was the 1972 Greatest Hits, which remains a superb, concise collection.

    This was the first ever CD release of the UK album. The extra tracks also had the first CD release of the single version of 'World In Harmony'. It will be in an upcoming box of their entire 1969-74 output for Reprise.

    The Blue Horizon period is messier. The CD reissues with extra tracks sound good, but studio chat/false starts were inserted in between the master takes. This is because the contents of the 6cd Blue Horizon Sessions box was simply ported over for the separate reissues.

    The one-off Immediate single 'Man Of The World'/'Someone's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight' slips through the cracks of these releases above. In fact, it's worth trying to find this now very old, deleted CD set which has most of their Blue Horizon work (as it was originally released) and the Immediate single.

    On my LP-version of Peter Bardens' Vintage '69 Write My Name In The Dust is the only track for which Peter Green isn't credited for playing the electric guitar. Vic Linton is the guitarist on this one.

    Along with Black Magic Woman, Green wrote this one, that was later re-done and made famous by Judas Priest. You might be familiar with the Priest version:

    Just listened to original versions of:

    Black Magic Woman. It's killer. More bluesy than the latiny Santana cover.

    Green Manalishi. As heavy as Judas' cover. Heavy AF. Very influential.

    When I was young, "The Green Manalishi" and " Oh Well " were regular FM staples. Done by Fleetwood Mac. So was "Hypnotized," but that one wasn't the Peter Green Fleetwood Mac.

    Listening to the 1st FM album right now. More great stuff, especially considering how young these guys were.

    That 1969-74 Fleetwood Mac box is also coming out on colored vinyl, for those interested:

    If you can get over the plump bloke in black leather and the general Metal silliness of it all, the Judas Priest version of Green Manalishi is great. One of my favourites from the Peter Green period was Peter Bardens’ Homage to the God of Light, featuring a ‘contractually anonymous’ PG.
