Second album reissued on vinyl LP!

Long before they became the multi-platinum chart toppers of 70's rock, Fleetwood Mac, anchored by guitarist Peter Green, were a pillar in the 1960s London blues scene. The band was founded in 1967 by Green and drummer Mick Fleetwood, along with guitarist Jeremy Spencer and bassist John McVie, with the band's name derived from their rhythm section. Three of the members (Green, Fleetwood, McVie) were all alumni of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers.

Playing straight up blues, the band have often become referred to as "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac" to distinguish them from the later iteration of the group, recording two albums for Blue Horizon — the self-titled release in April 1968, and Mr Wonderful in August of the same year, along with the compilation The Pious Bird of Good Omen, a collection of singles, B-sides and assorted other tracks.

Mr. Wonderful, the second album of Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green in its ranks, followed up on their massive same-titled debut album. Delivering hard edged, psychedelic and raw blues, the album counts as a staple from the late '60s. Adding to the rowdy energy of the album is the fact that the band recorded these tracks live in the studio, without using a sound board. The album introduced Christine Perfect (later McVie) of Chicken Shack on keyboards and a horn section. Great songs on this album include "Love That Burns," "Coming Home" and Elmore James' "Dust My Broom."
