Wow!! Great find! I love it when new Peter Green era FM footage surfaces (new to me anyway).

I still think it probably is Peter Green playing most of the guitar parts on this track. My recollection is that this was his masterpiece composition (along with Albatross).

It may be that Danny is just doing it for the video because Peter was doing something else. You can also see Jeremy Spencer playing in the video, while it's widely known that he barely contributed anything to Then Play On, let alone Oh Well.

What's also really interesting is seeing Danny using Peter's famous Les Paul before quickly switching to that acoustic.


I could be wrong though, This is just speculation on my part.

Maybe ash could chime in if he's still a regular around here.

Have a look here:

[smilingcorgipress.com]

Regarding "Oh Well" from Wikipedia:

"Peter Green wrote what would be part 2 of "Oh Well" on a Ramirez Spanish guitar, which he purchased after hearing the instrument on the radio.[3] "Part 1", which Green dismissed as a "throwaway riff", was intended to appear on the flip side of Part 2.[4]"

"Where the second part follows, there is a brief pause before Green's sombre, Spanish-style acoustic guitar and low electric guitar,[5] leading to further instrumental passages of recorder, cello and piano, the latter played by Jeremy Spencer. This was Spencer's only contribution to the song, as he was absent from the recording of "Part 1", and Green played all the other instruments heard during "Part 2"."
