Five essential albums from Fleetwood Mac's blues-fuelled early days with Peter Green, featuring Then Play On, Kiln House, Future Games, Bare Trees and Mystery to Me.
Top Customer Reviews
The albums cover four incarnations of the group, but the propulsive and inventive rhythm section of Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass remains throughout. The sound is ok - it could be better given that three of these albums were recorded using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio - the transfer to digital would benefit from a remaster - I recently reviewed Howlin Wolf's London Sessions (DeLuxe edition) and the remastered sound on that 1971 double disc is superb.
Then Play On (1969) was the final Peter Green album and saw the development from a pure blues band to a blues rock unit which was prepared to use influences from Spanish Canto hondo to classical. A good album, this US version has two Mac classics, Oh Well Pts 1 & 2 and Rattlesnake Shake, as well as a number of strong songs and a couple of instrumentals and hot excerpts from jams. Note that this US issue replaced two Kirwan songs from the UK release, Without You and One Sunny Day with the UK hit Oh Well Pts 1 & 2.Read more ›
Edit: Just bought the "Then Play On" remaster and it is great, especially with the added tracks.
Firstly, let me clearly state that, in my opinion, Then Play On is a classic. Where Mac could have gone, beyond this, if Peter Green had stayed, we can only wonder at.
With regard to the other 4 albums, I have to say that I found them all pretty dull, with very few memorable songs. It is not really surprising that the popularity of the band fell during this period. I was hoping for some material by Kirwan of the standard of Dragonfly or World In Harmony, but it just isn't there! Jeremy Spencer was a truly wonderful exponent of Elmore James slide guitar, but beyond that, his pretty amateurish rock and roll songs had me pressing the skip button very quickly! Other tracks, including those by Christine Perfect, are ok, but nowhere near the standard of her work with the later versions of Mac.
The last couple of albums in the series are probably the best, particularly Mystery To Me, but I have to say that the entire box set will be heading to
the second hand record shop fairly quickly (I already own Then Play On!).
OK this was a period of great change for the band the end of the first great period with Peter Green, (The US track listing of 'Then Play On' not the recent superior UK tracks), the Introduction of Christine McVie and a number of Guitarists taking charge to greater or lesser effect. Some albums work better than others despite the evocative cover 'Bare Trees' is more miss than hit and the production sounds poor Drums sound like cardboard boxes, while 'Kiln House' and 'Mystery to Me' have a better hit potential. Overall very pleased with the set it filled the gap in my Mac Collection and that is not a bad thing.

How on earth did I pass these albums by in the early seventies. These are true treasures and a bargain bought together in this 'Original Album Series'Published 9 hours ago by David W. Andrew
Mediocre blandness permeate this package apart from the Peter Green set and a few odd tracks on other albums. Was decidedly unimpressed.Published 8 months ago by Edman
