ALBUM REVIEW: Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac (1968)

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac: Fleetwood Mac (Blue Horizon).

One of the group events of last year for blues fans was the formation of the ex-Mayall guitarist Peter Green’s own group. They blow committed blues and aren’t afraid to rock. From the first bars of “My Heart Beat Like A Hammer” the music is kept at white heat intensity, or a warm, red glow for the medium-paced outings like ‘Merry Go Round’. Jeremy Spencer contributes nice slide-guitar, piano and vocals; John McVie, also ex-Mayall, is on bass, and Mick Fleetwood, drums. Producer Mike Vernon and engineer Mike Ross get a good sound on the rhythm section, which is usually the weak point of British blues recordings.
