Perhaps the definitive live document of the original Fleetwood Mac, LIVE AT THE BOSTON TEA PARTY was recorded at a crucial point in the band's history. By 1970, Fleetwood Mac (the blues-based, Peter Green-led version, not the later pop aggregation) had achieved fame both in their native U.K. and in the U.S., and their pioneering blues-rock was beginning to be influenced by American groups like the Grateful Dead (as evidenced by the extended jams on BOSTON TEA PARTY). They were also about to fall apart, as Green was headed towards a mental breakdown and eventual abandonment of his group. This three-volume series, then, could be seen as something of a swan song.
On this first volume, the smoldering minor-key blues of Green's "Black Magic Woman" (made famous by Santana's cover version) moves neatly into the slow, aching blues of "Jumping At Shadows," written by Mac pal Duster Bennett. "The Green Manalishi" echoes what were the growing spiritual concerns of Green, who had forsaken Judaism for Christianity, and continued to explore religion. The centerpiece is a 24-minute workout on "Rattlesnake Shake," which highlights the improvisatory abilities of guitarists Green, Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer.
