Biography

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac ... Read more in Amazon's Fleetwood Mac Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Kiln House February 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
As a collective group, the original Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer) had talent to burn. When they added a young kid with roots in Texas blues (Danny Kirwan), it would become an overpowering all-star lineup. Try and find another band with three scorching lead guitar players who were also adept as singers in their own individual right. Regretfully, the price they paid for so much abundance was seen in the reshuffling of their lineup: it seemed like they couldn't stand to be together (on stage or in the studio) for too long. With this literal game of musical chairs, it's amazing that they completed the projects that are their legacy.
When founder Peter Green split for a religious retreat in 1970, Kirwan and the circus showman-like Spencer remained. It was hard to live up to Green's overwhelming authority and expectations (especially as a blues perfectionist), and there is no doubt that the others felt intimidated by him. Freed of the personality challenges, the result was Kiln House, a disc that is a mother lode of riffs, tributes, and all-out joyfulness. Jeremy and Danny really led each other to new displays of vibrato magic and chunky chord displays that made it a 'different' sound. More importantly, the vocals (especially Spencer's eclectic identity changes) make this more approachable, and there is background help from a future player, Christine Perfect (McVie).
Spencer's composing skills were rejuvenated with a variety of styles, including his recognized bottleneck work and piano, and the other band members (McVei and Fleetwood) also received credits. The tunes start off with the Elvis-splashed "This is the Rock," a nifty shuffle that reminds us about the heart of the matter of this thing called rock 'n roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last Great One Before Commercial POP success September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the last "Truly Great" album put out by the "Great" Fleetwood Mac - that is the Fleetwood Mac of the Peter Green era! Even though he's not on the album - his spirit is there and supported by his close buddies Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan, and lets not forget the great John McVie and Mick Fleetwood themselves! This album was put together shortly after the tragic exodus of Peter Green and the hard times that followed till the band found themselves new singer/songwriters in Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham which propelled them into the tops of the POP charts, certainly a far place from their Blues roots of the Green era. This album is a treasure full of great blues derived rock n roll which will fill many an empty space for those interested in rock n roll.

I am so glad I was able to find this gem on CD as my vinyl collection is getting very worn! I've now got this on my iPod and along with many other great bands (such as Savoy Brown, Paul Butterfield, John Mayall, early Climax Blues Band, and King Biscuit Boy and others), can now listen to truly great music once again!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Fleetwood Mac January 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I never much cared for the more popular incarnation of Fleetwood Mac. Kiln House was made after the exit of Peter Green and as a result has a much softer edge. But, every tune on this album will have you tapping your feet and singing along. This is Fleetwood Mac's tribute to rockabilly, with a bluesy edge. I remember hearing this release after driving my best friend from NJ to Wisconsin. Every song rocks, but I especially like "Tell Me All The Things You Do" and the surreal "Earl Gray." Even with the loss of Peter Green both Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan still do a great job. If you like me disdain the nasal machinations of Stevie Nicks, pick up this album, you'll feel better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Energtic & Unique requirement for all Rock Music addicts December 22, 2002
By L.L.
Format:Audio CD
The very best, complete Fleetwood Mac LP prior to their (later) Top-40 transformation. Even those who are indifferent to Fleetwood Mac are very fond of this one!
A broad, diverse range of 'Guitar Rock' is displayed on this disc; an array which cannot be found on any other single Rock LP. The satisfying potency of Kiln House can be considered ironic as it was recorded during a period of uncertainty for the still fledglng band - blues guitarist Peter Green had rather suddenly left the band just a few months before.
Guitarists Jeremy Spencer -an aficianado of 50's-style American Rock- and a very young Danny Kirwan (who had an appealing flair in mainstream guitar sounds) suddenly moved from playing 'behind' Green to composing the works featured on Kiln House.
The refreshing diversity of guitar styles on this LP, hence, is due to the naturally different styles of Kirwan & Spencer. Their striving ambition to garner a solid fan base in America is excellently conveyed in Kiln House's raw energy.
If I had to recommend just ONE Fleewtood Mac LP to any serious Rock buff, Kiln House is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Garage Band Music for the Masses December 14, 1999
Format:Audio CD
At a time when the Rolling Stones were about to enter the studio and self-consciously rediscover their "roots" with the over-hyped Exile on Main Street,Fleetwood Mac were playing music for the love of the music and nothing else. A bit weirded out by the late guitar god Peter Green's departure, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie didn't opt to enlist a new guitar hero. Instead, they pooled their collective talents to produce the this thoroughly unpretentious and charming record. Whether the band, fronted by Spencer, is doing a Buddy-Holly send-up ("Buddy's Song") or an Elvis tribute ("This is the Rock"), each performer sounds relaxed and assured in this down-home, low-production element. When Kirwan takes the lead, however, the band cooks with fire. His "Station Man" is a slow-burning, riff-rocker, while "Tell Me All the Things You Do" is an inspired guitar jam built around a tight song structure. All the tracks sound honest and lively. And there are even a few twists: Spencer's rendition of Howlin Wolf's "Hi Ho Silver" is rougher and raunchier than one would expect from this slide master. Kirwan's "Jewel-Eyed Judy" is modeled not on Freddie King but Lennon-McCartney. Kiln House is a rare, one-of-a-kind record. The band never sounded like this beofre it, and it never sounded like this since. A must buy.
