Synopsis

Album Description
A 'Perfect Day' is a dozen tracks by the popular band Fleetwood Mac who are a British/American rock band formed in 1967. The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green; and from 1975-87, with the more pop-orientated band that featured bassist John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. The band enjoyed more modest success in the intervening period between 1971 and 1974, with the line-up that included Bob Welch. Drummer Mick Fleetwood is the only member present in the band from the start.
 

CD Reviews

Interesting Historical Recording
Carter Smolik | St. Louis, MO USA | 05/20/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I was surprised to see a newly released recording from this era of Fleetwood Mac -- a time which is usually eclipsed by first the Blues and later the California Pop eras that bookend it.

The sound quality is "ok" -- some premature fadeouts and no clues in the packaging as to the exact provenance of these recordings. Some are obviously live -- perhaps others are studio outtakes? Sounds mono to me.

Still -- a good and interesting listen for fans of the earlier Fleetwood Mac, particularly Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer. It's also unique in that this particular lineup -- Kirwan, Spencer, the McVies, and Fleetwood -- never "officially" recorded a studio album (although the Kiln House album features Christine, not yet an "official" member.)"
Included on British release

"The recordings on this release are included on the much more complete import Madison Blues: Live & Studio Recordings. This two cd set also includes an interview with Jeremy Spencer on DVD. Much more bang for your buck!"
John McVie was NOT an original member..

"Bob Brunning was the first bass player in Fleetwood Mac when they played their first gig in 8/67. Peter Green named the band Fleetwood Mac after his favorite rhythm section from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. He also hoped McVie would eventually join the band. After a couple of months, McVie did join FM because John Mayall was getting into jazz ("Bare Wires")and McVie wanted to play the blues."
