Typical Setlist for 1970 (Including first half of year with Peter Green)

Kiln House Black and White Blues Documentary (1970)

Unveiling The Fleetwood Mac Project

kiln-house-lineupIt’s hard to go anywhere around the world without hearing a Fleetwood Mac song.

But before their international stardom broke in the mid-’70s there were a few years that time has now forgotten.  Between their blues beginnings in the late 1960s and the arrival of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks in 1975, Fleetwood Mac lost five years to history.

That’s a shame because between 1970 an 1974 Fleetwood Mac put out some of the more interesting, varied music of early part of the decade.  The group released six full albums during that time — Kiln House, Future Games, Bare Trees, Penguin, Mystery to Me and Heroes Are Hard to Find — and they’re far from receiving the appreciation they’re due four decades later.

Five of the albums released between 1970-74 featured future solo star Bob Welch, but so far they’ve not been remastered or reissued in any form since their original releases on vinyl, cassette and CD.
