I'd like to hear that. He's said before that he likes Albatross so it should be interesting to hear his take on it.

Well, on my initial listen, it's a bit meh. Alright but nothing to write home about.

On a second listen, I like it better. I'm not a big fan of the original which clouds things a bit. I just obtained it :)

Just heard it on a disc from the Mother Country. Good version of "Albatross", although not as good as Peter Green's original (how could it be?). Nice to hear and to have; shame DG only played that one track live in the studio.
