Pianist Eddie Boyd is backed by Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood; recorded in January 1968.
1968 started with a recording session for Fleetwood Mac together with the legendary blues pianist Eddie Boyd. They recorded the album 7936 South Rhodes. Eddie Boyd was very impressed by Peter's guitar style and called him "a negro turned inside-out", he meant that Peter was black on the inside. During this time Fleetwood Mac kept playing 3-4 gigs a week in the U.K. Their first LP, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, was released on February 24. This album sold more than any other blues record earlier in England. It stayed in the charts for over a year! The songs had been recorded during November to December in 1967 and gives a good picture of the band's  live performances at this time that captivated the audiences. The album was recorded live-in-the-studio, no overdubs, they played all instruments simultaneously as well as lead vocals and the guitar solos. 

Recorded at CBS Studios in New Bond Street by Mike Ross, who had the previous year recorded The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Are You Experienced?, this album is a must own for the sound quality alone. It was recorded “live” in the studio, straight to stereo without any overdubs or post mixing.
The original Blue Horizon issue LP was for some peculiar reason issued as mono although the master tapes are stereo. This is it’s first issue on stereo vinyl.
The music in the grooves is equal to the sound with Peter Green playing at his usual impeccable best behind Eddie Boyd’s solid piano and vocals.

Pure Pleasure Records
The Restoration of the Art of Sound
180g Vinyl Mastered From The Best Available Sources

At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records. During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s – or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.

A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.

We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production. To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

There really is nothing quite like it.  It’s the touch, the feel, you have to stop and stare, the cover,  the real thing, even the smell.

Its tangible, you can feel it, see it, study it,   muse/dream over it, it’s real, someone  has spent hours and hours over its construction and presentation. Pure Pleasure Records is just that, Pure Pleasure and that is what it has set out to be.  

The music and the physical record.  Something to keep, treasure, admire and above all enjoy.Of course with vinyl it’s not just a record, it’s the cover,  the sleeve notes, you are  holding a unique package, produced by craftsmen.
