Considering how remarkably crisp and emotionally intact their first sessions for the first album, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, still sound 40 years later, it is rather amazing that they were engineered (by Mike Ross) onto a four-track machine, over three slim days, completely live, including vocals, with no overdubbing whatsoever. This alone places them in stark contrast to their other famous British peers, who were by then making experimental music that could not be performed live at all, thus beginning an alienation from their audience that would corrosively affect their creativity in the long run.
Even Jethro Tull started out as a pseudo-blues band. Meanwhile, the American blues roots were being further tilled by extraordinary talents such as Paul Butterfield, 30 Fleetwood Mac: 40 Years of Creative Chaos Canned Heat, and the Blues Project, featuring the incendiary guitarist Mike Bloomfield. ‘‘There were a million groups making a mockery of the blues. And a million guitarists playing as fast as they could and calling it blues. I didn’t want the music messed about. I was possessive about it,’’ he lamented.
Their long-term vision, however, unfolded in slow motion—so slowly, in fact, that many people are unaware of their magnificent middle period. Their creative trajectory was so distinctively innovative precisely because of this long-delayed production of their own uniquely personal style. Unlike their ambitious peers, who seemed to arrive full blown on the musical scene, it took Fleetwood Mac another 10 years (plus a great deal of tragedy) before they would deliver the shiny baby of their later pop phase.
