Complete your Peter Green collection. In Bill Drummond's book, "45", Bill bumps into Peter Green and his sound engineer on an international flight, and, on the spur of the moment, asks Peter the first question he can think of that (he's fairly sure) nobody has asked before: how many spots are on the leopard on the cover of "The End of the Game"? Peter responds dismissively by saying he doesn't know and he didn't have anything whatsoever to do with the cover art.

The directionless jamming on The End of the Game, the first solo release by Peter Green, is just what you'd expect from someone as psychologically messed up as he was when he cut it. He still plays wicked guitar, and sounds much like Jimi Hendrix in spots, but without Hendrix's vision. In fact, there's no coherent vision at all on this record. None of the musicians could have enjoyed themselves in spite of the opportunity to play with Green. It's drivel, from an immensely talented guitarist.

Fleetwood Mac's guitarist Peter Green released the all-instrumental The End Of The Game (1970) before disappearing for almost a decade. Borrowing the format of the jam session from jazz music, but the atmosphere from Ernst's surrealistic paintings, horror soundtracks and voodoo rituals, Green indulged in sheer sound-painting. The hallucinated ramble of the guitar weaves colorful textures for mantra-like psalms. It is visceral, primordial music that echoes the eruption of volcanos, ocean tides and the life-cycle of equatorial forest

The album represents an insight into what was going on in Green’s mind without ever really telling the listener, begging the question, just how much can be read from music in terms of psychoanalysis" As a result, The End of the Game is a fascinating representation of the most tragic period of Peter Green’s career but perhaps just as importantly, an. album that highlights his ability to convey his emotions and feelings through his guitar playing despite also symbolising the end of his most creative period as a musician. Following the release of this album (and two very rare singles) Green.

I've always heard this album was supposed to be terrible and for years I believed that hype. But after listening to it myself I must say It's anything but terrible, in fact I find it to be one of Peter Greens best albums. It's an all instrumental free blowing jam session divided up into discreet compositions that speak to the bands improvisational skills, which are pretty high in more ways than one, than to conventional compositions. If you want blues or the psychedelic rock of Peter Green's later period Fleetwood Mac material, look elsewhere.
