The Green Manalishi

Not Rated

Why Reprise is pushing a klunker like "Manalishi" is beyond me. It's another of those aimless heavy things that goes nowhere. "World," on the other hand, is a beautiful instrumental, featuring placid guitar work through several tempo changes, sounding very much like a world in harmony. This recording, incidentally, was made before guitarist Peter Green left. It is unlikely that it'll ever be on an album.
