Fleetwood Mac: Danny Kirwan, Bob Welch (vocals, guitar); Christine McVie (vocals, piano); John McVie (bass); Mick Fleetwood (drums).
Recorded at Advision Studios, London, England.
By this album, Fleetwood Mac had only 2 members from the original line-up of 1967: Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. Danny Kirwan joined in 1968, in time for the group's second album. Christine McVie (nee Perfect) joined in 1970, and Bob Welch joined in Spring 1971 to replace departed guitarist Jeremy Spencer.
Not a Mac album that springs readily to mind, when you consider the multi-billion sellers in the catalogue. This was during their "lost period," when they were neither a boy or a girl. Greeny had long departed and Stevie Nicks was not even a twinkle in Mick Fleetwood's eye. Bob Welch was the frontman, and shared the songs with Christine Mcvie and Danny Kirwan. McVie's "Morning Rain" is a strong song, spoilt by messy production. The album's jewel is Welch's title track. Had he not been discredited for a marital indescretion within the band, this is a song the latest Fleetwood Mac could easily justify doing today.
