Oct 15, 2004


The Bottom Line IN 1967 FLEETWOOD MAC WAS FORMED IN ENGLAND WITH MICK FLEETWOOD ON DRUMS, JOHN McVIE ON BASS, JEREMY SPENCER ON GUITAR AND BOB BRUNNING ON BASS

Mick Fleetwood had previously played with the “Cheynes”, the “Bo Street Runners”, “Peter B’s Looners” and “Shotgun Express”. The “Cheynes” were the back up band for the group the “Ronettes” who were the opening act for “the Rolling Stones” on their 1964 UK Tour. In April 1967 Mick joins “John Mayall’s” back up band “The Bluesbreakers”. The group now is comprised of Mayall, Fleetwood, “John McVie” and “Peter Green” born “Peter Greenbaum”. Peter had also previously played with “Peter B’s Looners”, “Shotgun Express” and replaced “Eric Clapton” in “The Bluesbreakers” in July of 1966. Mayall allows Green, McVie and Fleetwood some spare studio time where they record early songs for their new group to come. By June Mayall fires both Fleetwood and Green.

“Mike Vernon” who is the owner of “Blue Horizon” records is looking to sign an American Blues Band and first auditions the “Levi Set” but rejects them. He next introduces “Jeremy Spencer” to Fleetwood and Green. The trio adds bassist “Bob Brunning” and decides on the name for the group to be “Fleetwood Mac”. On 12 & 13 August they make their major debut at the Windsor Jazz & Blues Festival in Windsor, Berks., England. On 17 September they play at the Saville Theater in London adding the recently fired McVie who replaced Brunning who had departed to form the “Sunflower Brunning Blues Band”. On 3 November their debut single on “Blue Horizon” records titled “I Believe My Time Ain’t Long” billed as “Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac” is released. The single fails to make the charts and they become the record companies’ regular house band backing for “Otis Spann”, “Duster Bennett” and others.

In March 1968 their debut self-titled album “Fleetwood Mac” is released and it peaks at #198 in the US going all the way to #4 in the UK. In August Green writes the song “Black Magic Woman” that the group releases as their second single and it peaks at #37 in the UK.

The band breaks up in1969 and Welch and 2 other members of the group head to Paris where they formed the R&B trio “Head West”.

On 1 November the group’s manager “Clifford Davis” is very upset that the group refuses to continue their current tour and sends them a letter threatening that he will take a new group to the US and call them “Fleetwood Mac”.

SOME SONG LYRICS

DON’T STOP
If you wake up and don't want to smile
If it take just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You'll see things in a different way
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone
Why not think about times to come
And not about the things that you've done
If your life was bad to you
Just think what tomorrow will do
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone
All I want is to see you smile
If it takes just a little while
I know you don't believe that it's true
I never meant any harm to you
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,

DREAMS
Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It's only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat...drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost...
And what you had...
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say...Women...they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean...you'll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It's only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and...
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness...
Like a heartbeat...drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had...
And what you lost
And what you had...
And what you lost

RHIANNON
Rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night
And wouldn't you love to love her
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover?

All your life you've never seen
A woman - taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless

rhiannon......, rhiannon......, rhiannon......

will you ever win
rhiannon......rhiannon......rhiannon......

Dreams unwind
Love's a state of mind
All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win

JAGUARDOG’S FINAL THOUGHTS

Fleetwood Mac was one of my favorite groups of the 70’s and 80’s and I owned almost all of their singles. The only album I owned by them was one of the biggest selling albums of the 70’s in “Rumours” as well as the CD listed above. I’m pretty sure most die hard rock fans have or have had the “Rumours” album or CD at one time. If for some strange reason you are a big rock enthusiast and you have never heard this album or own it you need to find it now! This groups’ music was amiable, brooding, celebratory, delicate, earnest, intimate, melancholy, mellow, plaintive, reflective, rollicking, sophisticated, stylish and theatrical. That’s all for this week folks next Friday I will be covering singer, songwriter, guitarist and pianist “Dan Fogelberg”. Thanks as always for dropping by, reading, rating and commenting and I hope everyone has a Wonderful and Safe Weekend and God Bless, Ron.
