Sought-after record is back on vinyl for the first time in nearly 35 years!

In 1967 Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie played in the legendary John Mayall & The Blues Breakers, and were given free studio time during which they recorded five songs. Peter Green was so convinced of this band´s musical prowess that he formed it on the spot and named it after the drummer & the bass player.

John McVie, however, wasn't convinced yet, and it forced Fleetwood Mac to find a temporary replacement in Bob Burning. After a short while, however, he was as hooked on the Elmore James influenced British Blues that he left John Mayall to take a risk on a group of unknowns. The rest is history.

Fleetwood Mac, the self-titled debut album, was released in 1968, and was one of the highlights of the late British Blues movement, climbing to the #4 slot in the U.K. album charts without producing one single, and managing to stay in the charts for 37 weeks.

It was a traditional blues album true to form, but one that also showcased Peter Green's budding singing and songwriting skills. "I Loved A Woman" has a hint of the Latin Blues fusion he would perfect in "Black Magic Woman" a year later, while "Looking For Somebody" balanced humor and vulnerability that would come to characterize their style.
