In 1967, Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie played in the legendary John Mayall & The Blues Breakers, and were given free studio time during which they recorded five songs. Peter Green was so convinced of this band's musical prowess that he formed it on the spot and named it after the drummer & the bass player.
John McVie, however, wasn't convinced yet, and it forced Fleetwood Mac to find a temporary replacement in Bob Burning. After a short while, however, he was as hooked on the Elmore James influenced British Blues that he left John Mayall to take a risk on a group of unknowns. The rest is history.
Fleetwood Mac, the self-titled debut album, was released in 1968, and was one of the highlights of the late British Blues movement. It was a traditional blues album true to form, but one that also showcased Peter Green's budding singing and songwriting skills. "I Loved A Woman" has a hint of the Latin Blues fusion he would perfect in "Black Magic Woman" a year later, while "Looking For Somebody" balanced humour and vulnerability that would come to characterise their style.
