Mr. Wonderful at the time of it's release was stone cold blues-period. NOBODY on the British side and I dare say in the states put out this kind of raw blues album. It sounds like it's live in a club and the sheer force of Peter Green is overwhelming. Listen to Stop Messing Around, If You be My Baby, Love That Burns, Lazy Poker Blues, Rollin Man and you will find the B.B. King influence done on steroids. Fleetwood, McVie and the horn section are spot on perfect to achieve the atmosphere - a superb band with Christine Perfect sitting in on the piano - and she is subtle - yet present in every tune.

Spectacular tone, phasing, and raw power & hey - Green sings like he means it. He makes sure they are all having a good time. Jeremy Spencer does overdue the Elmore thingy - but who does it better? I mean really-who? He stays very true to the original spirit and sound. As noted by others the Duster and Pete acoustic song is a beautiful thing. This as a second U.K. released album places Peter Green as THE Blues Guitarist to be measured by. Nobody since has truly captured what he does on this album. It isn't meant to be a virtuoso performance technically - but for all intensive puposes - it is. (John Antonuccio)

Este disco esta buenisimo y no lo conocia, esto va para mucha gente que no conoce al verdadero Fleetwood Mac, de fines de los sesenta y setenta, todos conocen al Mac de Rock & Pop, este es el verdadero con Peter Green y Mick Fleetwood, que lastima que no lo puedo compartir, soy un terrible buscador de cosas raras en la web y cuando encuentro cosas como estas las comparto para mucha gente que no las conoce, Abrazo de Oso Amigo
