In its famous 'dog and dustbin' sleeve, Fleetwood Mac's first album was released in February 1968 on Blue Horizon Records in the UK in both MONO (7-63200) and STEREO (S 7-63200) and in August 1968 on Epic Records in the USA in both MONO (LN 24402) and STEREO (BN 26402). In the UK it's referred to by it's label title "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac" - in the USA simply as "Fleetwood Mac" (which is on both cover and label). And although it's now recognized as a masterpiece of British Blues - this particular reissue of that explosive debut is "The Complete Blue Horizon Sessions 1967-1969" version - the one taken from the 6CD box set issued in 1999 - and its jumbled around enough to require an explanation.

The original album track list ran as follows (35:55 minutes):

1. My Heart Beat Like A Hammer (Jeremy Spencer song) [2:59 minutes]
2. Merry Go Round (Peter Green song) [4:20 minutes]
3. Long Grey Mare (Peter Green song) [2:15 minutes]
4. Hellhound On My Trail (Robert Johnson cover) [2:06 minutes]
5. Shake Your Moneymaker (Elmore James cover) [2:57 minutes]
6. Looking For Somebody (Peter Green song) [2:52 minutes] (End of Side 1)
7. No Place To Go (Howlin' Wolf cover) [3:21 minutes]
8. My Baby's Good To Me (Jeremy Spencer song) [2:51 minutes]
9. I Loved Another Woman (Peter Green song) [2:57 minutes]
10. Cold Black Night (Jeremy Spencer song) [3:17 minutes]
11. The World Keep On Turning (Peter Green song) [2:29 minutes]
12. Got To Move (Homesick James Williamson cover) [3:21 minutes] (End of Side 2)

But this "Box Set" version runs to almost twice the length of the ordinary CD reissue (63:39 minutes):

1. My Heart Beat Like A Hammer (Take 2 Master Version with Studio Talk) [3:33 minutes]

5.0 out of 5 stars Great discovery November 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well, after you get to a certain age, you are more likely to buy old favorites than to find something new. I've always been a blues fan, but generally the blues I like are Delta blues by singers who are, or sound like, actual old Delta guys. I mean, I appreciate Eric Clapton and others for rediscovering and republicizing these great old songs. But I just don't connect with the British blues singers. And: I regard a number of Fleetwood Mac's songs as rock anthems, songs everybody should own. I was poking around on iTunes deciding which old Fleetwood Mac anthems I loved enough to buy for my iPod, and hadn't heard too many times already, and, of course, the way iTunes' search works, I could hardly miss Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. It's seldom that iTunes out-obscures Amazon, but here's one. Amazon (at least, as I write this) has no samples of this CD; go to iTunes and listen to some samples. You might actually like it well enough to buy the whole CD. Otherwise, I bet you'll find several cuts you can't do without: particularly, Moneymaker and Cold Black Night. And be sure to check out Tallahassee Lassie. Really outdoes Freddy Cannon.

Peter Green was the best replacement John Mayall could have found for Eric Clapton, and Green continues his emotional guitar playing style with his own group consisting of additional ex-Mayall sidemen Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.

If you are expecting something similar to the classic Fleetwood Mac of the '70's with Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie, then beware--this is totally different music, straight blues. Those three had not appeared in the lineup back when this album came out. The only other member besides the core three from Mayall's band is slide guitar expert Jeremy Spencer.

While Peter Green's vocals are competent in a blues context, I have never been too fond of Spencer's vocals, which appear on the slide guitar-heavy songs. Spencer is an unabashed Elmore James disciple and even does a fair job of mimicking some of the legendary bluesman's vocal nuances and his slide playing is good, but his voice sounds amateurish and boyish. Maybe he improved later on, but here I think Green should have assumed all the vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Blues Fans June 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember this album as an original vinyl LP record from the time of the early British blues explosion. Released in February 1968 & originally titled simply "Fleetwood Mac" this was the debut album of the blues-rock band formed after guitarist Peter Green & bassist John McVie left John Mayall's "Bluesbreakers" to unite with drummer Mick Fleetwood & slide guitarist Jeremy Spencer.
This is an historic album & very collectable, with a fine & well balanced selection of rugged & rocking blues tracks written by Green & by Spencer, as well as "Hellhound on My Trail" a Robert Johnson song, "Shake Your Money Maker" originally by Elmore James, & "No Place to Go", a Howlin Wolf song.
The sleeve notes for the CD are very informative & explain how the original tapes were resurrected. There is studio talk on this album but it is not overdone & towards the end there are bonus tracks taken from the recording sessions master tapes, some featuring several takes of one song, which are fun to listen to at times, while at other times the listener can choose to stop play after track 12 to hear the original 1968 release only.
The union of Green & Spencer's guitar styles on this record is quite harmonious, in a rocking sort of manner, & guitar buffs who like twelve-bar type blues will find this enjoyable. But you don't have to be a guitar player to appreciate Peter Green's solo acoustic performance on "the World Keep On Turning", a raw gutsy delta blues number written by Green.
It is possible to obtain many of these tracks from budget priced greatest hits compilations but somehow this album has an "original is best" appeal about it.
I consider this CD to be "a must have" for blues fans, & to be one of the very best British blues albums ever recorded.
