Somebody’s got to be second class, after all. And Fleetwood Mac were definitely second class – no matter what stage they were going through. For almost ten years, their quantity certainly surpassed their quality, and even after the big breakthrough in 1975-77 they didn’t manage to encompass anything truly substantial, if you know what I mean.

Innovation and originality are certainly not the terms to be associated with the band. Maybe the most striking thing about Fleetwood Mac is their rapid evolution over the years. Having started off around 1967 as a hardcore blues band whose main ambition was to put to shame Cream, in less than a couple of years they’d discovered that this direction was a dead end and switched directions in a twinkle of an eye. This is the trusty rhythm section that gave the band its name, actually, and the band’s only stable skeleton. The early Mac were pretty much dominated by Green’s blueswailing, but Spencer did contribute to the band’s sound seriously, too. I wonder what Danny’s coming had to do with that? Thus is brought on the most famous line-up that recorded some of their biggest sellers and which lasted, hmm, until 1987 – a real long time, ain’t it?
