Fleetwood Mac
Started by: berylh (1682) Report abuse
Recently been re introduced to the great Fleetwood Mac playing Albatross - I just close my eyes and I see this majestic sea bird flying over the ocean. I guess we are all mostly of an age to remember this the first time round, it is still as fresh as it was then.


Not good at connecting to you tube, perhaps someone could oblige then we can all enjoy it again.

Green, Spencer and Kirwan all together there.

Classic stuff from the original band.

Posted by: berylh (1682) Report abuse
Isn't it wonderful to revisit these gems?

Posted by: raymyjamie (5354) Report abuse
It certainly is Beryl.

After I posted the link I played the youtube video through my headphones on my laptop, absolutely brilliant.

Tango In the Night is an all time Favourite album of mine

Posted by: roylew (2947) Report abuse
Different sound altogether Kath from a different group with same name....although the original name was Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac....man of the world

I saw the second line-up live a couple of years ago.

Well impressed.

Of course, Earl Vince and the Valiants were exactly the same group as Fleetwood Mac.

...And?

'Of course, Earl Vince and the Valiants were exactly the same group as Fleetwood Mac.'

Jarvo, I think 'uncle joe' thought it would be a nice piece of information for those who would like to know. But, for most people, it means nothing. This is due to the fact, most people probably do not have the 7" vinyl single: 'Man of the World'.

I listened to "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked in Tonite" for years without realising it was credited to Earl Vince.

kenee,
I am quite sure most people had no idea about the band behind the song and certainly didn't consider it to be early Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer)

It was not unusual for bands and solo singers to venture onto different ground and to use a different name - as to say, another persona: Bolan did it, Bowie did it, Freddie Mercury did it, Paul McCartney has done it...

It's a shame " The Green Manalishi ( With the two prong Crown ) never gets any radio play these days . A massive hit back in May 1970 on Reprise and also written by Peter Green .... excellent single

Recorded in 1976, by 2013 Fleetwood Mac's album 'Rumours' had sales of over 40 million.
It is the 11th best selling UK album of all time.

I went to see Peter Greens splinter group in Preston years ago when Peter came on stage he was shuffling his feet looked like he had a job to walk, he told the audience later about his drink being spiked in Germany and it ruined his health,but when he played the guitar it was amazing, the feeling in the tunes he plays for me cant be matched, later backstage had a chat with him got his autograph and had my photo took with him. ROVER green manalishi shake your money maker, those get your feet tapping.

Peter Green made a great contribution to the world of music and influenced Carlos Santana, The Beatles and Lindisfarne among others.

Posted by: Wigan Rover (637) Report abuse
Gary Moore , once of Thin Lizzy also cited Peter Green as being a huge influence on his career too

Posted by: kenee (2000) Report abuse
Gary Moore released a tribute album to Peter Green, Blues for Greeny!... and very good it is too.

Posted by: Wigan Rover (637) Report abuse
Thank you for highlighting that Kenee , I don't have the album issued in 1995 by Gary Moore (re mastered in 2003) , but I bet its very good

Posted by: kenee (2000) Report abuse
It is very good and Gary does justice to most of PG's classic numbers. He used Peter's Les Paul to record the album with the neck pick up wired back to front for the authentic sound. One track which he doesn't quite match Peters original is 'The Supernatural' (in my humble opinion).
I was lucky enough to see Gary Moore live at Manchester and Liverpool shortly before his death.

Thank you for that Kenee , very interesting . A lot of people like a lot of good music on this site
