| Excellent, thoroughly researched documentary for music fans.
This wonderful documentary on one of the all-time guitar greats also highlights what a great song writer and vocalist Peter Green was, and the tragedy of mental illness that cut him down in his prime. It features lots of footage of Green and Fleetwood Mac, intercut with interviews by band members Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer, as well as Green himself. Carlos Santana, Noel Gallagher, John Mayall and other industry insiders attest to Green's greatness and provide fascinating on-the-spot accounts of the times.

I saw Peter Green play live just a few years ago, when he was a shadow of his former self, but this documentary shows what all the fuss was about - his soulful understated guitar phrasing, the unique musical style he developed, and his classic songs like Black Magic Woman, Albatross and Oh Well.
