Artist Info

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (sometimes also called the Original Fleetwood Mac) is not to be confused with the more famous Fleetwood Mac of the mid to late seventies, which featured Lindsay Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, and Christine McVie. All that remained in that group of the original British Blues outfit of a decade earlier was the rhythm section of John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, from which pair all incarnations of the band derived the name.

Peter Green was Eric Clapton's replacement in John Mayall's band. Like Clapton before him, he quickly became the star of Mayall's show, making one album with the master, before calving off with other ex-Bluesbreaker's to start a band of his own. Leery of the spotlight, Green named the band after the rhythm section, and recruited slide guitar wizard Jeremy Spencer, who fronted the band roughly 50% of the time, both on stage and in the studio. After two albums (and material in the can that would not be released until later), Green recruited a third Guitar player, Danny Kirwan. With Kirwan's entrance, the band began a gradual move away from the straight ahead blues of their first two releases, starting with the dreamy hit instrumental "Albatross" and and darker heavier singles like "Oh Well pts 1&2" and "The Green Manalishi." For one last foray into Blues, the band journeyed to the Chess Ter-Mar Studios in Chicago, to record with blues veterans like Buddy Guy, Honeyboy Edwards, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon. Then after a final album under Green's leadership, THEN PLAY ON, Green left the band, followed shortly thereafter by Spencer. Subsequent releases are better thought of as the work of the later and better known "Fleetwood Mac."
