12. The World Keep On Turning

“Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac was first released on February 24, 1968. The band started it’s life splintering off from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers with Peter Green taking Mick Fleetwood with him. John McVie was asked but had qualms about leaving so a temporary bassist named Bob Brunning was brought in for a few weeks as the original bass player”

11. No Place to Go

“Before the pop rock and the hits of the late 1970s, Fleetwood Mac was a blues act. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac is the beginning of this era, and one of only three albums to feature original member Peter Green.”

10. Hellhound on My Trail

“Peter Green’s tenure with Fleetwood Mac may have been short, but damn did it yield some greatness. The debut is a shining example of blues rock, as good as any other if not better. On occasion stripped down or rough on the edges, but never is it not passionate. I’d recommend this.”

7. I Loved Another Woman

“Listen to I loved another woman and you get the idea of the musicianship of this band, very moody and driving a bluesy sound. The guitar is so clean like a dreamy guide through the night.”

5. My Heart Beat Like a Hammer

4. Long Grey Mare

“Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac is real, raw british blues straight from the gutter. Cover perfectly visualize music. Their later album “Then Play On” is even better, more progressive, but got more polished sound. This is straight and simple, great dirty, heavy sound of the guitar plus that vocal. The Esssence of British Blues!”

3. Looking for Somebody

“Before the girls… Before the commerce…before the catchiness…there were the original and outstanding Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, and this is their historic, heavily blues based debut album. An outstanding collection of raw electric blues , played like there is no tomorrow.. Pure night mood music for drinking whiskey … Essential”

2. My Baby’s Good to Me

“All blues/rock with a mix of fairly hard blues rock and heavy blues, and somewhat more interesting mat’l than that found on the “Original Fleetwood Mac” album recorded the previous year. If you don’t like blues/rock, steer clear of this one.”

1. Merry Go Round

“”Merry Go Round” suffers from Clapton Syndrome but manages to save itself solely based on the lyrics, the guitar is straight white-man blues, which eventually sounds like a teenage kid jerking off. I think it was sometime in the mid ’70’s when Jimmy Page fell sick to Clapton Syndrome, his was so powerful it even rubbed off on Plant. We finally did halt its growth into other forms of music after the Hair Metal scene and it died out with Pearl Jam. But it seems as though the loss of the disease was worse for our general musical health because since then not only have their been any cases of the Syndrome but there hasn’t been any cases of good music for it to ruin either. Perhaps losing those annoying artists also meant losing the good ones that they were imitating. I guess Kenny G is the only living example of Clapton Syndrome anymore.”
