Album Reviews Fleetwood Mac (1968)

ALBUM REVIEW: Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac: Fleetwood Mac — My Heart Beat Like A Hammer, Merry Go Round, Long Grey Mare, Hellhound On My Trail, Shake Your Moneymaker, Looking For Somebody, No Place To Go, My Baby’s Good To Me, I Loved Another Woman, Cold Black Night, The World Keep On Turning, Got To Move (Blue Horizon 7-73200).

I was slightly disappointed. Peter and his boys are competent and dedicated enough to have made a better LP than this, which consists of nothing much new or adventurous in the blues field, merely their attempts to duplicate what has already been done by countless other blues artistes. Doubtless it’ll appeal to Fleetwood Mac fans as opposed to blues fans. Also the recording quality was too often flat — compare this with the punch of Elmore James or Howlin’ Wolf items. This is a shame because throughout the album some brilliant touches come through. “I Loved Another Woman” is perfect, and the instrumental and vocals are mostly very competent, and often inspired. ***
