Fleetwood Mac – Then Play On (1969)
There are two Fleetwood Mac outings in this series. Mainly because they have such a long history, and mainly because there are essentially two Fleetwood Macs; the pre-girls blues years and the post-girls blues-into-something-else years. Both of which I love.
For starters here’s ‘Then Play On’, the band’s third studio album featuring Peter Green on vocals, guitar, harmonica, six string bass and percussion, Danny Kirwan on vocals and guitar, John McVie on bass and Mick Fleetwood on drums and percussion.
First released in the UK in 1969, the US pressing (also released in 1969) included an eight-minute version of ‘Oh Well’ featuring Jeremy Spencer on piano.
Then Plan On was the last Fleetwood Mac album to feature Peter Green.
