The Original Fleetwod Mac - CBS 1971 (68-69)
Most tracks are out-takes from the first album recorded in late 1967. The album as a whole is almost as good as their debut album and I actually like it better than their second "Mr Wonderful". A few tracks like the charming "Leaving Town Blues" may appear a little unfinished, but the material is mostly great with both Green and Jeremy Spencer originals.
For this version 4 bonus-tracks have been added - all recorded later in than the 12 originals, and all fine. "Mighty Cold" recorded in 1969 is Jeremy Spencer at his very best. "Jumping at Shadows" I have heard in other, better sounding versions, but Green's guitarplaying is simply a joy to listen to. "Man of Action" shows the "crazy" side of Spencer, and "Somebody's Gonna Get His Head Kicked in Tonight" was originally released as the B-side of "Man of the World". It may be a slightly different mix; I'm not quite sure about that. A must for fans of early Fleetwood Mac!!
