Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac 180g LP
180g Vinyl LP Reissue of 1968 Debut Album! Pressed from the Original Master!
Sometimes known as "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac," the self-titled album was
their debut released in 1968. Music includes a mixture of blues covers and
originals written by Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer.
Overnight success was enjoyed by the group following the release of the debut
reaching No. 4 in the UK staying on the charts 37 weeks.
In 1967 Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie played in the legendary John
Mayall & The Blues Breakers, and were given free studio time during which they
recorded five songs. Peter Green was so convinced of this band's musical prowess
that he formed it on the spot and named it after the drummer & the bass player.
John McVie wasn't convinced & it forced Fleetwood Mac to find a temporary
replacement in Bob Burning. After a short while, however, he was as hooked on
the Elmore James influenced British Blues that he left John Mayall to take a
risk on a group of unknowns. The rest is history.
The Fleetwood Mac of 1970, before Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the
group, was primarily a British blues band. These songs, recorded after the
departure of band leader Peter Green and the release of their fourth album,
"Kiln House" show a broadening of the band's use of blues into other contexts
with new musical influences. Fleetwood Mac continues today as one of the most
enduring and successful rock bands in history.
