Fleetwood Mac — Then and Now

I first heard of Fleetwood Mac back in in 1968. My friend Gerald Saxon and I had played with one group and another in the Beaumont area since we were in Jr. High school. We were currently going through a bit of a blues phase and Gerald had just bought a copy of an album by a new British blues band called "Fleetwood Mac."
If you've never heard the work of Fleetwood Mac from their original line-up, let me assure you, it was a completely different sound with, for the most part, completely different people.

In 1968, this was the line-up for Fleetwood Mac:
- Peter Green – vocals, guitar, harmonica
- Jeremy Spencer – vocals, slide guitar, piano
- John McVie – bass guitar
- Mick Fleetwood – drums
- Bob Brunning – bass guitar on "Long Grey Mare"
And this was how they sounded;
