absolutely... one of a kind peter green - if only...
Great album! Great title! Great cover!
That album is some kind of miracle.
wasn't until I got the BBC sessions that I realized that the "Madge" suite was actually a jam that regularly ended "Rattlesnake Shake" in concert. Creative way to finesse perhaps not having enough songs under the circumstances. just as amazing to was that they could regroup without Green and put out "Kiln House" next, which is also eye-opening.
Interestingly, this period of Fleetwood Mac, starting with Then Play On and including (in order) Kiln House, Future Games, Bare Trees, and Mystery to Me (some of my favorite albums by anyone!) are not to found on ANY streaming service that I've encountered. This mostly affects younger people that won't know what was out there in the first place. I'm guessing it's a "publishing" issue, but I have no clue. The fact that the music is some of the best of the era though, makes it truly a shame in many ways. Grab the vinyl or CD if you have an opportunity. You won't regret it! Big thanks, Sal for posting this masterpiece.
Oops, looks like I forgot to "sign in" properly...that was mine that's credited to "Unknown" above.
whattawino - practically all of the Mac albums are on youtube, including "Penguin" (pre Mystery to Me)
Those Madge jams are always skipped at my house.
Anonymous...So happy to hear that!.....But still, no acknowledgment on the "net" for those records is a crime, no?
Sal, thanks for highlighting this. I'm one of those who ignored for years the pre-Lindsey-Stevie period of Fleetwood Mac. What did Brits know about the blues? But you insisted this music needed to be heard and when I finally listened I was blown away. Great stuff, indeed.
