The Hound says: "The original Fleetwood
Mac (1968-1971) were a very different band than the one that conquered
the American airwaves in the late seventies and became on of the
biggest bands in history.
The originals group-- Peter Green (guitar/vocals), Jeremy Spencer (slide guitar/vocals), John McVie (bass) and Mick Fleetwood (drums), supplemented in 1969 by Danny Kirwan (guitar/vocals) were a hard rockin' blues band, one of the best ever, with a great rhythm section and a triple threat front line who took their American blues influences and created a totally unique sound. I prefer them to anything Eric Clapton ever did, not to mention anything Jeff Beck or Jimmy Page did after the Yardbirds. Much has been written about Peter Green so I'll leave the subject alone for today to concentrate on Jeremy Spencer's contributions" Link.
