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

Vintage Mac with Peter Green live is a very good disc. the original black magic woman is great, and the green manalishi that was later covered by judas priest is absolutley awesome. Really good blues and is a must have for anyone into old school rockin blues. This is not for the people looking for modern Fleetwood Mac with Nicks & Buckingham.

I bought this CD on a whim - and found a goldmine. I had purchased other Fleetwood Mac albums from the Peter Green era 3 or 4 years ago, as well as a Splinter Group recording and Hard Road - but had put them aside after a few listenings. This CD brought me back to them for another listen, and opened up a whole new world of Peter Green's music to me. The thing about this CD is that every song is good, if not very good. Most of the cuts sound like they were recorded in a small venue in front of an audience for the BBC - and the result is an intimacy with the music and the musicians that can rarely be captured in a studio, nor in large venue live recordings. The musicians play as if they are having a great time - and the looseness among the instruments adds a fresh and underproduced quality which I have rarely heard.

I was a Deadhead during Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac's height - but I remember hearing Let's Play On for the first time. The Grateful Dead's mastery of group catharsis ruined me for other bands for many years - until I listened to this CD - over and over again. Then I went back and listened to the others that I had purchased - and truly began to appreciate the subtle mastery and beauty of Green's playing and singing. From the sense of humor of "Oh Well", to the deep sadness of "Man of the World", to the pure rock blues of "Rattlesnake Shake", to the incredible dual guitar work with Danny Kirwan on "World in Harmony". Classic live renditions of "Albatross", "Black Magic Woman" and "The Green Manalishi (a 15 minute version with an extended John McVie bass solo) are included. "Jumping at Shadows" and "Looking for Somebody" are great blues, and Jeremy Spencer's "Stranger Blues" is incredibly well done.

I'm a huge vintage Mac fan. I think this is a pretty good record, because:
1. It contains their famous popular tunes (Oh Well, Albatross, Black Magic Woman, Rattlesnake Shake, Man of the World, etc.);
2. It contains Looking For Somebody, which is a really heavy blues mambo number, one of my all-time favorite Mac songs, featuring Mr. Green playing some very tasteful and skilled harp;
3. It has minimal Jeremy Spencer/Elmore James covers (not that JS didn't do a nice job; he really did, and his passion for Elmore's fabulous singing and playing always comes through);
4. It has one of the top five Mac tunes ever recorded--Jumping At Shadows, by the late, great Duster Bennett--which, to me anyway, is also one of the greatest slow blues ever done, by anyone, primarily due to the emotion and artistry of Peter Green. All Mac recordings should have either Need Your Love So Bad, or Jumping At Shadows;
5. It has a very nicely composed B/W photo on cover, with all five members, with Mick, of course, standing head and shoulders above all the others.

Peter Green was incomparable, unsurpassed, a genius and a true guitar immortal and tremendous singer, someone who could be both achingly tender and raucously powerful, and everything in between. However, I do feel that in general, Mick is overlooked as a key component of the band. He was, and is, a wonderfully inventive drummer and percussionist, and back in the blues years, he was responsible for devising many absolutely stunning and irresistible rhythms for the group. He really packed a wallop. Same goes for John McVie.

Because of my affinity for blues, even though I will always deeply love the early Mac, I feel that people are overly critical of the later manifestations of the group.

Unless you're a fan of raw music and just have to have this CD to complete your library, don't bother wasting your money.
It sounds like it was recorded in somebody's garage on a cheap 4 track tape.
One of the worst recording i have ever heard.

This is the true MAC! Not taking any dues from
the Buckingham/Nicks era, blues gave birth to
the original MAC.
