Fleetwood Mac – Albatross (Leaping Ahead #278)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #278: 161004

[A 1960’s song (10)]

The first time I heard this track was at a free festival on the local green in the small town I grew up in. It was 1970 and two years after Fleetwood Mac released ‘Albatross’, Peter Green’s haunting instrumental and their only Number 1 hit with the original line-up. I’ve no idea who the band was that covered the tune at the festival, but they inspired me enough to save up for ‘Then Play On’, Fleetwood Mac’s third studio album released in 1969. I’ve still got that!
