I prefer Early Fleetwood Mac.

Hence, my first nomination. Oh Well, Part 1 and 2

Don't you find yourself "conducting the orchestra" when it comes pounding back at 7:40? I know I do with a lot of fist pounding.

Then, there is Middle with Bob Welch. Hypnotized.

I may add more.
BUT REMEMBER THE ONE RULE.
You MUST provide a video so we can hear and pass judgement.

Hands down, gotta be YouTube link for me.

Oh Well. I agree with John the OFM. Fortunately the days when that was a dawghousing offence are past!

Saw Peter Green a few years back – he's not what he was, but it was still a great gig.

Hold Me (1982)

It was the song we kept hearing as we bounced along dirt roads and cross country when I was at geology field camp in western Wyoming.

Titles would be nice too. grin

It's a tie for me. Both from "Rumors" 1977 and featuring Buckingham's great guitar.

"Fleetwood Mac?" Is he any relation to Ross Mac? And what periods does he game in?

MHoxie Inactive Member04 Jan 2018 1:14 p.m. PST

He likes Wessex Games' rules for mammoth hunting.

Another vote for The Chain – Mainly for the F1 connection.

I was gonna say "Second Hand News" but Lori beat me to it. Great minds…

KSmyth04 Jan 2018 4:29 p.m. PST

Tough choices, but my favorite is "The Chain."

But you can also snag me with Tusk and the USC Marching Band--the only time I've ever written "like" and USC in the same sentence ever.

Love the original line-up of Fleetwood Mac and OFM's lead off selections are two of my favorite.

The Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham years are neat because of their ability to play live shows so well. Clean and tight sounding. Even something as simple as Gold Dust Woman from a live show in Japan was sexy.

YouTube link

As an aside, I fondly recall the Bob Welch & Dave Mason concert tour back around 1974. That was fun.

No. grin

Thanks for the assist,KSmyth.

No problem. Fleetwood Mac is/was a great band with a lot of great players and a sound that evolved. The guitarists, whether Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Bob Welch, or Lindsey Buckingham were all excellent.

Stylistically they simply evolved. The addition of Christine (Perfect) McVie and Welch in 1970 did as much to change the band, as the later addition of Stevie Nicks and Buckingham. It's all good just different. Mrs. McVie is a wonderful songwriter.

One more gem, but no YouTube link is the live version of I'm So Afraid from their 1980 live album. Lindsey live is good.

I like a lot of Fleetwood Mac, but I think its a toss up for me of Gypsy, Go your own way, or The Chain.
