This is impossible to describe in words. It defies logic. It's like asking to describe Pearl Harbor in words. It can't be done. But I will try.

This is, simply put, the most raw, intense blues-rock ever recorded. The original Fleetwood Mac. Sure, the later lineup was cool with "The Chain" and all that, but this is something else. This is pure, unbridled jamming with a capital 'J'. These performances are so intense, so rocking and so devastating that it seems futile to even compare anything else to it. Peter Green and Danny Kirwan are amazing individually. But when they actually duel and play together, it's beyond description. Case in point - "Like It This Way". Easily the most ass-kicking blues rocker I've ever heard in my life. This is a boogie that's sure to blow your mind, believe me. The groove is intoxicating, and the duelling of Green/Kirwan on this song is so good it almost reduced me to tears. You thought Duane Allman and Dickey Betts were good? Forget it, Green and Kirwan blow them out of the water. No question. In fact, the Allmans in general could not compete with Mac's jams on this album. Don't say I didn't warn you.

One listen to this version of "Black Magic Woman" and you'll be saying "Santana who?". Green's tone here is stunning, and the second half is a boogie where he and Kirwan battle it out again. Frightening stuff.

"Jumping At Shadows" is a unique cover of a blues classic. Awesome melody.

Already mentioned "Like It This Way". It's enough to tear the roof off TWO buildings!

"Only You" has a very unusual melody and riff, almost Dick Dale-ish surf rock. Great song though.

And then you have a 25-minute "Rattlesnake Shake" that takes you to places you never knew existed. Unreal.

To say that Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac is an understated jewel in the blues/rock world is too dismissive. They have a raw energy that could only be matched by only a few, and I can't really even think of who they are. I got Then Play On when I was 15 in 79. I have replaced the album 3 or 4 times, and still listen to it at least once a month. It is a staple in my home, car, and ipod.

I have heard, but not owned Albatross, and somewhere have two Peter Green cassette tapes. I never heard them live. What a shallow existance I have lived. I just got Live in Boston 1 and 2 today (from Amazon) and can not beleive what I am hearing. Truely some of the greatest music I have ever heard.

If you know the early works of Fleetwood Mac or Peter Green, then this is the creme de la creme. Words can not describe how absorbing the music is. I am addicted to Jam Bands (the Dead, Garcia, moe., the cheese...) and see many similarities, but mellower and bluesier.

Buy it, listen to it, fall in love with the lost art of Fleetwood Mac / Peter green et al.

I was lucky enough to see the original FM twice, once on this tour and then again on the next tour, which featured Christine Perfect (later McVie) in support of Kiln House...but this band...with Green, Kirwin and Spencer was simply the best rock band I ever saw back in the day (and I saw plenty, including Hendrix, Cream, Jethro Tull, Procol Harum, the James Gang, Humble Pie, Mountain etc etc etc). No one even came close to FM's level of dynamics and interaction, they really listened to and played off each other, even more than Bruce, Baker and Clapton. And some of the best stuff is really captured on this recording. Get volume 2 as well, it's almost this good. But this one is the best! Outstanding!

As the other reviewers have noted, this is a fantastic live recording from Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. I would just add that for those with HDCD-compatible players, the sound is amazing. On my Rotel CD player, the band sounds as though they are right there in the room with me.

This recording is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE! Everything - the playing, the playlist, the recording quality, the crowd presence - is just incredible. Searing, raw, high-quality stuff that catches this version of the band in top form. But there is no reason to compare it to other artists (e.g. Santana, Allman Bros. - even later versions of FWM etc.) - it stands on its own. For those of us who followed them from the beginning, this is a vindication of what we've known all along - the initial lineup was an incredible collection of talent that rivaled the best of its day. They stand right along with the greats! ...Beware though - these guys are NOT the Buckingham/Nicks style that produced 'Rhiannon'. This is power BLUES with the only work that is remotely 'commercial' being the Peter Green-penned 'Black Magic Woman' (yes, they did it 2 years before Santana) and 'Only You'. We expect sound quality of this level these days but for 1970? A true rarity.
