Biography

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac ... Read more in Amazon's Fleetwood Mac Store

5.0 out of 5 stars It was the.....blues you gave me 17 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album.
It is early Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green on vocals and Guitar, Jeremy Spencer on Slide Guitar and vocals and Danny Kirwen on vocals and guitar. I only mention these three as they are the most influential members of the band at the time and all three are involved in the song writing. This album (the third by the band) was only originally released in America. It includes a about half of the songs on their second album, Mr Wonderful, which had not been released in the U.S. All a bit strange really.
It has a great mix of upbeat tracks as well as the classic slower "bluesy" tracks and everything in between. Songs like "Doctor Brown" and Stop Messin' around" are great fun with life affirming lyrics, upbeat rhythms and brash confident guitar playing."Evenin' Boogie is just that, an infectious boogie that anyone could dance to. Slowing things down, "Something Inside of Me" really strikes a cord with me, a real high point. Things get pretty dark with "A love that Burns", anxious and sad. " I've lost my Baby" , is great, I love the singing in this track and especially the way the guitar becomes more and more expressive as the song progresses. The all time classics "Black Magic Woman" and "Albatross" are here, although I find Albatross (although beautiful) to be a bit incongruous on this collection of songs, perhaps it does add to the variety though?
The other tracks I have not mentioned are by no means just filler, they all add to the album, making it a fine collection of blues styles. Easily one of my favourites in the genre.
The only downside to the package as a whole is that I would really like to know who plays, sings and writes on each tune, something I feel is unclear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice cover,eh? 6 April 2008
By Glen Kepic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the original Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac at their gritty best. I actually bought this as part of a 2 record set called Black Magic Woman on Epic records paired with the eponymous Trash Can release (also worth owning) back in '74 and has been played consistently ever since (I jammed with it just yesterday). For me there isn't a bad track to be had and is I think essential listening for anyone who digs Les Pauls, from the biting intro to Stop Messin' Round to the beautiful Albatross.

This album also shows how talented Danny Kirwan was with his tracks Something Inside Of Me (awesome minor key blues plus nice rhythm guitar work from Peter) and One Sunny Day (pretty mean sounding with great rhythm section work from Fleetwood and McVie, simple but effective). Jigsaw Puzzle Blues is another fine offering by Danny showing a bit of a Django Reinhardt influence, as was the case for many of the British players of the '60s.

I like Jeremy Spencer's work as well especially Doctor Brown with strong vocals and slide work.

But the best of all is the original version of Black Magic Woman, one of the all time greats (I also have the British single version where reverb is added to Peter's tone for the second cycle of his solo).
When I was in a cover band a couple of years ago we did Santana's version, mainly as a showcase for our drummer, but I would have been happy to play it Peters way. Love That Burns is another fave, displaying not only Peter's less is more fills, lead work and picking hand dynamics but his awesome vocals.

Its funny, my wife has a bunch of the Buckingham/Nicks Mac recordings but I can hardly think of them as the same group as the Peter Green era. English Rose is a perfect example of why. What an outstanding recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential re-issue 8 Oct 2003
By Neal T Dimick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording is not a compilation, as stated, but a straight re-issue of the 1968 Epic release I bought when it was new. Nothing has been changed, except the elimination of surface noise. Listen to the riffs as they were laid down here, before they were imitated into rock cliches. Was Green imitating the great Chicago bluesmen? Of course, but he listened more effectively than most. A raw, beautiful album that has engendered decades of debate as to how he got that tone from his instrument.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nix on Stevie....vote for the Green party! 20 Mar 2001
By D. Hartley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This early Mac import album from the Peter Green days was a tough one to track down even during its vinyl heyday (maybe distributors were concerned that pre-Monty Python era U.S. record-buyers would be frightened by the cross-dressed Mick Fleetwood on the cover!). Collectors can rejoice that it is now on CD! This 1968 release can be labeled "seminal" just on the basis of two tracks..."Black Magic Woman" and "Albatross". "Black Magic Woman" obviously inspired Carlos Santana, who not only covered it, but followed the original guitar arrangement almost note for note, which shows the kind of respect Green had from some higher profile musicians. And then there's the sublime "Albatross"... at least one of the Beatles has stated that "Sun King" was inspired by Green's memorable instrumental (listen to the two songs back-to-back sometime). The rest of the album is dominated by Green's authentic blues tone and great slide playing. While several compilations (of varying quality) of the Peter Green-led Mac are currently available, "English Rose", along with the domestic "Then Play On" are your best bets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mac's US only release you can't find in the US anymore 2 Oct 2005
By Kevin P. MacNutt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1969, "English Rose" was Fleetwood Mac's second US release which features the highlights from their second UK release, "Mr. Wonderful", the 1969 UK compilation "Pious Bird Of Good Omen" along with several Danny Kirwan contributions otherwise unavailable on LP. Unfortunately this album is rather hard to find nowadays since it provides a much more natural transition between the blues-wailing nature of their 1968 debut album and the 1970 "progressive blues" stylings of "Then Play On." "English Rose" features a variety contributions from Peter Green, Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer instead of "Mr. Wonderful" which seemed to concentrate only on Spencer's ability to emulate the stylings Elmore James, often to the point of irritating repetition. "English Rose" also subsitutes the Eddie Boyd tracks from "Pious," with newer Kirwan penned tracks which flow a little better with the rest of the material on the album. If you can find this for a reasonable price (or find it at all) I would recommend this over both "Mr. Wonderful" or "Pious Bird Of Good Omen."

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic Chicago Blues From The UK 14 Jan 2007
By Jack B. Nimble - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After hearing this original version of Black Magic Woman years ago, I understand why Santana (formerly The Santana Blues Band before the 69' S/T album) covered it in 1970 and why I do not desire to hear Santana's version anymore: 1. It's been played to death 2. Peter Green's original version give me the chills. It's simply incredible how many people all these years think Santana wrote this song. Anyway, English Rose was the 69' American release on Epic that features songs that were on Fleetwood Mac's UK releases. It is usually considered a compilation, but it is still a truely remarkable blues album to have with an odd novelty cover portrait of Mick in drag (dig the ugliness). Sadly, it does not contain "I need your love so bad" which is my second favorite P.G.F.M. tune during the late 60's. With Peter Green's soulful vocals and genuine blues guitar playing and Jeremy Spencer's Elmore James bag o' tricks, it doesn't get much better than this for Chicago blues. All songs are worth the price of admission here and are a perfect introduction to this incredible UK blues band once called Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Epic never released this CD domestically in the US, so this Japanese import (with the usual misinterpreted lyrics) is the only CD version available. Get it.
