Album review: Peter Green, Kolors (1984)

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT, MAY 25, 1984

By Steve Newton

Blues giant Peter Green has come up with a worthy successor to 1982’s sinfully overlooked White Sky in his new release Kolors.

Featuring ex-Robin Trower drummer Reg Isidore, primo session bassist Mo Foster and guitarist Ronnie Johnson, Kolors includes eight original tunes from the pen of Mike and Peter Green, as well as the traditional “Same Old Blues”.

There’s low down blues (“Liquor and You”, “Bad Bad Feeling”) and more funky stuff (“Black Woman”, “What Am I Doing Here”), with Green’s slippery, understated licks creeping up everywhere.

For those who want to hear how an old blues master sounds today, Kolors comes highly recommended. Hats of to Edmonton’s Stony Plain Records for keeping the legend on vinyl.
