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

... the ORIGINAL Fleetwood Mac was a force to be reconned with in their heyday 1968-1970. Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood (from ONE incarnation of John Mayall's legendary Bluesbreakers) recruited slide virtuoso and 50's stars aping Jeremy Spencer and third guitarist Danny Kirwan (and one Cristine Perfect, soon to be Mrs McVie on some of the later sessions) and took on the world.
Riding british hits (the reverb drenched ALBATROSS which inspired the Beatles SUN KING, the sad and world weary MAN OF THE WORLD and the original BLACK MAGIC WOMAN) the band did these sessions for the BBC 1968-1970 (last broacast was Jan 1971, shortly after Spencer and Green had both left the band). Included are the bluesy stomp of RATTLESNAKE SHAKE (a short version at 7:30, the Elmore James-ey BELIEVE MY TIME AIN'T LONG and BABY PLEASE SET A DATE, a rockin' twin lead peice by Kirwan called ONLY YOU, Spencer's 50s favorites JENNY LEE and a smoking TALLAHASSIE LASSIE), more of Green's trademark world weariness on JUMPING AT SHADOWS and the classic NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD. Add a couple of solo slide pieces (think Robert Johnson) in PREACHIN' and EARLY MORNING COME. They even perform a pretty good imitation of their old boss Mayall on BLUES WITH A FEELING.
If it sounds like this band is all over the map... well maybe. But as a BAND, they make it all work and run together so well. One of the surprising aspects of the set is how much FUN it sounds like these guys are having just playing together. It's hard NOT to be taken in by the shear JOY of SANDY MARY or BUDDY'S SONG (a send up to Holly). This might be the most fun record this side of THE WHO SELL OUT.

If you were born after the first half of the Baby Boom (1946-55), this is your father's Fleetwood Mac. Although three of the main players in the popular, late 1970's incarnation of the band are present here (Mick Fleetwood on drums, John McVie on bass, and the future Mrs. McVie, Christine Perfect, making guest appearances on three tracks, but offering no vocals), the sound is completely different, save a few pop offerings. The male McVie, Fleetwood, and lead guitarist Peter Green all emerged from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers to form Fleetwood Mac, at Green's behest, in 1967. Given their heritage in John Mayall's band, it's no surprise that the bulk of Fleetwood Mac's circa 1970 productions are grounded in the blues. What is surprising is the gamut of other genre's visited by the band, ranging from down and dirty, Jim Morrison style blues and psychedelic rock (Green's 'Rattlesnake Shake'), to almost pure bubblegum fare (guitarist Jeremy Spencer's 'Jenny Lee'). In between are convincing and entertaining parodies on Buddy Holly (Spencer's 'Linda' and Danny Kirwan's 'When I See My Baby'), Elvis (Spencer's 'You Never Know What You're Missing' and 'Heavenly'), and even the power pop sound of Badfinger ('Honey Hush').

The bulk of the better tracks are found on the first disc, and most of them are Peter Green compositions, as well as nice covers of Tim Hardin's 'How Can We Hang On To a Dream' (unusual given its piano foundation) and Phil Everly's 'When Will I Be Loved'. The first disc opens with the two heaviest numbers, every bit as weighty and psychedelic as anything by Led Zeppelin. 'Rattlesnake Shake' is the longest performance on the disc, running seven and a half minutes, and actually is faded out rather than brought to a conclusion by the band.

While this album does have many of the great songs that made the early Fleetwood Mac great, it seems as if the band is watering down its sound on many tracks. It's as if they wanted their recordings for the BBC to be listener-friendly, and they threw in some more pop-sounding songs to give people something to like about their music. One example, the reworking of Long Grey Mare found here. In my opinion, the sound you'll find on their main albums is what's really great, and it's present here. I just wish they would have left out some of the songs like Jenny Lee and Heavenly. I have to skip past those songs...

If you are a fan of the Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac don't pass this up. The sound is excellent, the performances are what you want to hear from this bunch of players at this moment in time. The variety is great, each player is given the chance to show what they can do in an ideal setting. They show a little more brawn live than on the studio work from this era. Really fat juicy Les Paul tones and Jeremy Spenser nails the Elmore James styled slide tunes. This is essential listening. Buy it and treat yourseld to a real treasure.

For anyone who is a fan of the, what I call, old school Fleetwood Mac there is one album you just need to get to add to your music collection. That album is "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac: Live At The BBC". Fleetwood Mac over the decades has gone through many changes in personel and in styles of music. Among fans of Fleetwood Mac there are those who love those specific styles of music that Mac played. There are those for example that love the Nicks/Buckingham Fleetwood Mac with the multi-million selling records and grammy wins. Then there are those Mac fans who only like the original Fleetwood Mac when they were known as the premier British Blues band in the world. "Live At The BBC" is the album for those fans. No Lindsey or Stevie on this recordings, though a young keyboard player by the name Christine Perfect appears on a couple of the songs (and would a couple of years later marry the bassist of the group). No this is the Mac with founder Peter Green, Jeremy Spence, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.

These are rare recordings that were made back in the late '60s to early '70s for the BBC that were after being played on the BBC were put away in a vault and forgotten until they were rediscovered and put on CD in the mid '90. What makes these discs so amazing to listen to is the broad range of music that Fleetwood Mac was performing on the radio. Of course you get their classic blues sounds with songs like "Oh Well", "Rattlesnake Shake", "Sweet Home Chicago" and "Tallahassee Lassie" and others. Interestingly enough one of Mac's biggest early hits "Black Magic Woman" does not appear anywhere on either of the CDs. Not a big deal but strange that Fleetwood Mac never preformed that song on the show since it was an early hit song for them.
