Pretty much the only unfortunate side-effect of the massive artistic and commercial success the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks era of Fleetwood Mac was the obscuring shadow it cast upon the earlier eras of the band. No one has even attempted to compile the greatest moments from the early Seventies version of the band, and while blues lovers have revived interest in the original Peter Green-led Fleetwood Mac, it has still been impossible for the non-obsessive completist to find a convenient single-disc introduction into this wonderful, formative era of the band. A large part of that was due to label-hopping and rights issues: the Peter Green era spreads over three different record labels, and while the "strictly blues ma'am" Blue Horizon material was the often tossed onto cheapie compilations, the more pivotal Immediate and Reprise cuts remained out in the cold.

Finally - FINALLY - this set rights all those wrongs, and presents the novice with an almost flawless, complete view of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. EVERY important recording, every important aspect, of the early Fleetwood Mac is included here.

What does that actually mean? Well, this set includes the best cuts from their first self-titled album (giving equal time to both Green and the Elmore James-obsessed Jeremy Spencer with "My Heart Beat Like A Hammer," "Shake Your Moneymaker," and "Looking For Somebody"), as well as highlights from the disappointing follow-up Mr. Wonderful ("Stop Messin' Round," "Rollin' Man"). Almost all of the band's Blue Horizon singles are here: "I Believe My Time Ain't Long" is missing, but "Need Your Love So Bad," "Black Magic Woman," and the #1 UK instrumental hit "Albatross" are all present and accounted for.

Billed as : " Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac Featuring Jeremy Spencer " this exciting blues based band were voted the most popular band in England ( Yes, they even bested the Beatles in many poles in 1968-69. )

Today's version of Fleetwood Mac bears no comparision to this the ORIGINAL band,

Led by Peter Green , Fresh from his stint with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Fleetwood Mac debut album was released in Feb 68 and climbed the charts reaching #4 in the UK. In the era of the Grateful Electric Airplanes this debut record of Raw Blues remained in the British Album charts for an astonshing nine months.

Guitar duties were shared with Peter by Jeremy Spencer. An avid devotee of bluesman Elmore James, Jeremy's vocals and stinging slide Guitar make their mark on many cuts featured here. John McVie handled Bass Guitar Duties and a Six-foot six maniac named Mick Fleetwood bashed away on a special built oversized Drum Kit.

In concert this band earned a reputation for blowing away any other band that dared get in their way. And yes they could jam on a tune like " The Green Manalishi " for 30 minutes at a go ( See the Boston Tea party tapes for live proof . )

What you have here are 18 of the most popular of all early Fleetwood Mac recordings. At 78 minutes there's alot of music jammed on this disc making this a good value for your buck.

The highlights here are of course " Black Magic Woman " , " Alabatross " , " Man of the World " , " Oh Well " , " Shake Your Moneymaker ", Rattlesnake Shake " , The Green Manalishi ( With the Two Pronged Crown ) and " Need Your Love So bad.

Best of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, an import collection from Holland covering the early years of the band, is an excellent compilation for the fan who likes his blues raw and intense. Be aware: This is not the Buckingham/Nicks multiplatinum Mac, with it's (comparatively) gentler tales of relationships gone wrong and poets of the heart. This is also not the underrated, mid-period Mac, featuring Bob Welch and Christine McVie, with it's sweet odes to extraterrestrial activities and sentimental ladies. No, this is the earliest Mac, with it's biting chords, in-your-face vocals, and ultra-intense, self-introspective journeys of heaven and hell. In particular, "Green Manalishi" and "Oh, Well (Part II)" are soul-searching anthems too intense for everyday consumption. Think Neil Young's Tonight's the Night, Savoy Brown's Kings of Boogie, or even Derek and the Domino's "Layla" and you have the idea. Luckily, all the songs are not so gut-wrenching; "Rattlesnake Shake" and "Shake Your Moneymaker" are classic, swaggering blues, while "My Heart Beat Like a Hammer" features guitarist Jeremy Spencer at his Elmore-James-sounding best. (Spencer and third guitarist Danny Kirwan are both featured here, but Spencer's alter-ego Earl Vance is not!) As for fearless guitarist and leader Peter Green, "Albatross" and the original, pre-Santana "Black Magic Woman" show off his chops to perfection. There are a few cuts which don't belong here, such as "Need Your Love So Bad," and a Chicken Shack song, a cover of Etta James "I'd Rather Go Blind," sung by Christine McVie.Read more ›
