CD Reviews

A Comment
John C. Timmann | 09/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Agreed this is first class Mac at their best before they became a factory pop band, but the previous review's song mentions do not match the titles on the spec listing. The CD cover art does not include "Oh Well" and "Green Manalishi"-two superp must haves for Mac fans. I have the original LP issue on UK CBS and they are on the cover. Is there some error here? Has the original been reissued on CD minus those two towering tracks?"
1989, not the 1971 CBS Greatest Hits
R. Porter | Sacramento, CA | 10/01/2008

"Be aware that this is NOT the 1971 Greatest Hits issued by CBS, featuring the amazing songs "The Green Manalishi" and "Oh Well." This is the 1989 CBS Greatest Hits, which confusingly has the same cover art, but a completely different song list. Make sure you know what you're buying. The 1971 issue is extremely hard to find, as it was not issued in the United States."
Solid introduction to fleetwood mac

"this best of early fleetwood mac will not satisfy music fans looking for deep album tracks ( there's quite a lot of great early mac not on this disc) or many fans of the later incarnations of this band, but it is a fine beginning disc for those interested in exploring the early fleetwood mac. with the exception of cream, this is almost inarguably the greatest aggregation in the entire late 60's" british blues boom." in addition to two guys who survived into the band's wildly successful mid/late 70's/ smooth west coast sound era, drummer mick fleetwood and bassist john mcvie, fleetwood mac were blessed with not 1, not 2, but THREE ultimately doomed guitarists, the great peter green, the comical jeremy spencer, and the talented danny kirwan, ALL of whom left the band due to drug and mental problems...

as for the music on this disc- well, it's awesome stuff for the most addition to monster british hits like the # 1 u.k. hit, the beautiful, hawaiian influenced instrumental albatross, the original version of black magic woman, a huge hit for santana in 1970, the sad peter green ballad man of the world, kirwan's obscure, somewhat late period psychedelic dragonfly, the incredibly powerful and beautifully complex oh well, the fierce blues/ rock of rattleshake snake, and the harrowing original version of green's haunting, demonic tour de force: the green manalishi ( with the 2 prong crown). this, the spiritually and mentally tortured green's last fleetwood mac hit, blows judas priest's late 70's cover away...this is a fine ( if not perfect) introduction to early fleetwood mac, but it's rather brief, and certainly not the whole story: albums like the mighty THEN PLAY ON from '69 also merit investigation..."
