Peter Green (1946 – 2020) was an English blues rock singer-songwriter and guitarist.
He was the co-founder of Fleetwood Mac.
He is perhaps best known for penning “Black Magic Woman” (1968).
However, I remember him most fondly for his instrumental “Albatross” (1968).
“Smokestack Lightning” (1956) by Howlin’ Wolf (1910 – 1976) is ‘world music classic‘ #882.
“Smokestack Lightning” is on the soundtrack to The Wolf of Wall Street, a boring film about boring people who think they are interesting because they are high.
It’s astonishing how cocaine has shaped the history of the West since the 1970s.
The Wolf of Wall Street reminded me of American Psycho.
I liked American Psycho a lot better.
Other 1956 ‘world music classic’ compositions include “Heartbreak Hotel” by Elvis Presley, “Fever” by Little Willie John and “Love Is Strange” by Mickey & Sylvia.
