It’s a Beautiful Day-White Bird

Published on Jul 3, 2010

It’s been a long time since I uploaded any new music. Sorry about that, I’ve been busy and having trouble deciding what to upload, until I found this gem. I got my hands on the original vinyl of the self-titled debut of It’s a Beautiful Day for 15 dollars, so I cleaned and converted it. This is the first track off the LP, White Bird. All tracks are converted straight from the original vinyl.

Beauty from the days of my youth. Love it so…

This is a later one with the Splinter Group. Peter has suffered greatly and it is heart breaking but he has obviously still got it.

God, bless him every day. Thanks.

This is a 9-song playlist featuring Katmandu, a band formed by Peter Green that did not last long at all. The songs are:

Blowing All My Troubles Away, Dust My Broom, One More Night Without You, Crane’s Train Boogie, Boogie All The Way, Who’s That Knockin?, Sweet Sixteen, The Case and Zulu Gone West.

From Wikipedia: ( sorry 🙂 )


Katmandu were formed when ex-Fleetwood Mac leader Peter Green became dissatisfied with his solo career and his band Kolors, and looked to form a new band with new musicians. Retaining Kolors percussionist Jeff Whittaker, he made contact with former Mungo Jerry frontman Ray Dorset through a mutual acquaintance, and they met up at Dorset’s Satellite Studio, where he was running a video and commercials production company. During a jam session, one of Dorset’s clients from a Swiss company made an offer to fund recording sessions and an album, providing £120,000 for this purpose.[1]

Recording and split

Green, Dorset and Whittaker were joined by former Atomic Rooster keyboardist Vincent Crane, along with bassist Len Surtees (ex-The Nashville Teens) and drummer Greg Terry-Short (ex-Ozzy Osbourne), and recorded an album during December 1983 and January 1984.[2] A Case for the Blues was not released until 1985, but by then the group had already split up. According to Whittaker, Green had enjoyed recording the album but became disillusioned over Dorset’s handling of the group’s finances and refused to work with him again.[1] Green reformed his band Kolors in the summer of 1984, retaining Whittaker and Terry-Short, but by the end of the year the band had disintegrated, and Green began a period of 12 years of musical inactivity. Thus the Katmandu project represents Green’s last recorded work before the Peter Green Splinter Group‘s first album in 1997, apart from one track recorded with Mick Green in 1986.[1]

Later releases

A Case for the Blues has been re-released several times, sometimes as a Peter Green solo album, such as the 1987 release on the Original Masters label.[3] Other releases credit the album to Peter Green and Friends.[2]

Peter Green – Fool No More

Published on Dec 22, 2011

Peter Green with a most beautiful performance.


Yes, I’ve packed up my clothes
I’m moving away from your door
Lord, I’ve packed up my clothes
Said, I’m moving away from your door
I’ve been your fool for so long
Babe, I won’t play that fool no more

I gave you all my money
I work as hard as I can
I came home early one morning
I found you with another man
Babe, I’ve packed up my clothes
I’m moving away from your door
Said, I’ve been your fool for so long
And lord, I won’t play that fool no more


So good-bye baby
You don’t even care
Yes, I had a love so strong for you
But you treat me so unfair
Said, I’ve packed up my clothes
I’m moving away from your door
You know, I’ve been your fool for so long
And babe, I won’t play that fool no more

The Lord God singeth.

The Lord God playeth.

Russell Stover chocolates were a mainstay at my house growing up and it’s easy to see why… they are deliriously delicious. It’s about as simple as that, really.

And now, I am thrilled to tell you that they’ve accepted me as an affiliate.

Doesn’t cost you a thing. I just might get a little commission if you score some.

God, these things are just so good. One does need tremendous discipline to have a box last more than a day or two, though. Speaking for myself, of course…:) So good luck with that!

Very Nice!

I remember Soundcraftsmen… high quality, professional grade gear from California. And now that so many decades have gone by, your loser host can now finally afford to get one!
