If you didn't get this the first time it was released in the mid '90s, here's your chance - THE FINEST example of Peter Green's genius BAR NONE - plus guests like Joe Walsh, Clapton and I think, Pete Townshend.

And BTW, it's about 6 bucks cheaper on amazon.uk....

I dont think I have ever heard of the "Boston " release. The only ones I have and know of are the Boston Tea Party releases....and those are awesome. Is this different? Not much info on Amazon given.

Yes, it's the same Boston Tea Party releases only all 3 volumes (since Vol 3 never was released as a separate CD from the original limited edition box set)

I almost bought one of the mid nineties releases recently but didn't because i was not sure i could easily find the other volume and i was unaware there was a 3rd disc that came with the original limited edition box set.
Plenty of different songs spread over these 3 discs so this is definitely something to add to my (ever expanding!) wish list

Disc: 1
1. Black Magic Woman
2. Jumping At Shadows
3. Like It This Way
4. Only You
5. Rattlesnake Shake
6. I Can`t Hold Out
7. Got To Move
8. The Green Manalishi

Disc: 2
1. World In Harmony
2. Oh Well
3. Rattlesnake Shak
4. Stranger Blues
5. Red Hot Mama
6. Teenage Darling
7. Keep A Knocking
8. Jenny Jenny
9. Encore Jam

Disc: 3
1. Jumping At Shadows
2. Sandy Mary
3. If You Let Me Love You
4. Loving Kind
5. Coming Your Way
6. Madison Blues
7. Got To Move
8. The Sun Is Shining
9. Oh Baby
10. Tiger
11. Great Balls Of Fire
12. Tutti Frutti
13. On We Jam

3CD Set in round box remastered vintage live recordings of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Earlier this year the current incarnation of Fleetwood Mac embarked on a massive world tour. Dates in North America are being followed by gigs around Europe, Australia and New Zealand. These dates will see the band playing sold-out shows to huge arena crowds and are sure to create another surge of interest in this much-loved band. Boston is a 3CD set which collects live recordings from an earlier era of the band's colourful history. The set features the classic blues line-up of Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer. Originally recorded at the Boston Tea Party venue over three nights in February 1970, for a planned release later the same year, these recordings were left in the can, unissued, following leader Peter Green's sudden decision to leave the band a few weeks after the dates. Tracks from the shows were eventually released in various forms in the mid-80s but these releases were blighted by poor sound sources. The discovery of the original 8-track tapes and a number of previously unreleased tracks in the late 90s allowed the material to be re-mixed, re-mastered, and substantially overhauled for release on 3 separate CD volumes. This new set brings together all of these re-mastered recordings a 3CD set to present a complete document of these historic shows. The set is packaged in a round box with a 24 page book and 5 beer mats. The booklet contains new sleevenotes and reworked artwork.

Ok.. gotcha, thanks. Nothing really new for me that is, I already have these discs.

I am scratching my head a little still....
Brofan mentions "plus guests like Joe Walsh, Clapton and I think, Pete Townshend." [/b

I dont remember any if those gus being on there or even being mentioned on the Tea Party Discs.

I know Joe Walsh was named in particular back on the '90s releases.

Clapton DID sit in with Fleetwood Mac during the Boston Tea Party run, but from I've read, the jam they did hasn't ever been "officially" (as official as they may be) been released.

And this is the first I've heard of Pete Townshend being involved.

I might break down & get this new set just for the book & beer coasters. LOL!

I have the 1999 box set from Snapper Records. Disc 2 does have 13 minute encore jam with Eric and Joe. No Pete. That jam is okay but not as great t as what Peter Green does elsewhere in the set.

Sorry about the bad info re: Pete. Keep in mind I'm now 56 and I was working off my (more frequently than ever) faulty memory....

Like Jim said, you buy this for Peter Green - and Danny Kirwan, for that matter who really shines here on Only You and others.

This is Jam City, folks, and there are few better examples of Rock Guitar Improv than this set. And the sound is spectacular, too.

The Boston Tea Party shows are about the only thing I've ever heard that rival Duane and Dickey and the various other versions of the dual guitar Allman Brothers Band. Parts of these shows are as great as anything ever recorded.

Parts, unfortunately, sorta suck too. The Jeremy Spencer Elmore James/Earl Vince stuff is, while not necessarily horrific, very much out of place. I've always had a mental image of some dude sitting in the crowd just blown away by Green and Kirwan......the Spencer starts in and the guy is saying to himself "What the hell is this? Noooooooooooo!"

Nevertheless, it is an incredible set of music.

I agree with everyones sentiments about these recordings...they are awesome.
When I reach for Peter Green Fleetwood Mac era material , these are my go to.
If I had to introduce or turn someone on to this version of Mac(which I have) give
them the Boston Tea Pary discs. Great harmony guitar playing.

Speaking of harmony guitar playing. " Coming Your Way " from the Boston shows is EXCELLENT.
Coming Your Way

I have always wanted to hear ABB or at least Warren and Derek bring this one out. Nice harmonic guitar palying on this, that they could really rip it up. I am suprised Warren/Mule as many covers as they do , have not tapped more into this era of Peter Green. I know they have done Oh Well, but there is so much more to offer.

Interesting ABB/Mule/Peter Green connections:

The Mule covers "Look Over Yonder Wall," which Peter Green also covered.

Peter Green's line-up of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers did "You Don't Love Me" (on the LP A Hard Road) before the ABB released their version.

As did the Paul Butterfield Blues Band with Bloomfield and Bishop.

And Junior Wells covered You Don't Love Me on Hoodoo Man Blues with Buddy Guy on guitar, probably the greatest Chicago blues album ever.

No ABB, but pointing out the Chicago influence on PG's FM.

J Geils Band covered it in '68, prior to the ABB.

FM also covered "Need Your Love So Bad" which appeared on "Enlightened Rogues."

And, the long jam with Clapton from the Tea Party, Green plays a long solo just as he had on 2/11/70 at the Fillmore East, the night where most of the ABB, PG and Mick Fleetwood all jammed with the Grateful Dead.

That looks to be among the worst packaging for a CD set I have ever seen.
