Default Peter Green`s Fleetwood Mac

Fantastic blues band-in my humble opinion far superior to any later, more successful incarnations.

I agree! I like the earlier albums with Peter Green better than the Pop sound of the later line ups. I have Blues By Green and it`s a fine album. Mick Fleetwood has returned to the Blues with his latest band, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, it`s worth a listen.

Clapton is the only one I can think of when it comes to white players. Or Jimmy Page. Mike Bloomfield.

All great players-(I LOVE Led Zep BTW).
But for the few years that Green`s Mac were successful and he was healthy, he was a magical guitarist.

Peter Green was an amazing guitar player but Fleetwood Mac in that era hardly offered anything new in relation to the multitude of blues rock albums around at that time, they had some great songs but I be hard pressed to say that they put out a great album, in fact "best of" albums from the Peter Green era I think are he best way to listen to them.

When Lindsey Buckingham took over the band, they became something very special, in fact a rock myth.

I see what you're saying. Buckingham is a great guitarist. I think Peter Green was great, though, and I love the blues. So part of me likes the old Mac better, but part of me likes the Buckingham era just as much.

Live at the Boston Tea Party, the full 145 minute version, is probably my favorite blues rock album. You're right. There isn't much to distinguish the blues rock bands that came pouring out of England in the mid 60's. But Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac has just a little bit more of a boogie/groove in their music; compared to the likes of John Mayall or Epic Clapton. Cream did too, put I think was in part due to the psychedelic influences. It's not much, but that slight variation separates them for me.

On Boston Tea Party there are several long tracks that would shrivel up and die under normal circumstances because they lack the hypnotic quality from someone like Junior Kimbrough. What keeps them going is that groove. It reminds me a lot of the stuff from the short lived Band of Gypsys, actually. It slight, but once you notice it, it keeps on going and makes Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac a cut above the other blues bands of the era.

Sorry to name drop so many artists not named Fleetwood Mac, but they are all fresh in my head from a conversation with my boss.
