29) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Fleetwood Mac-'Kiln House'.
As long as the band has John McVie and Mick Fleetwood,
then it's considered Fleetwood Mac. I guess this is what Mick and John
said when their leader and guitar god Peter Green decided to leave the
band. This is a transition album, and a new beginning for the band.
An unaccredited Christine McVie plays her amazing blues piano, and she
even lends a little of her voice for the first time with the Mac. She
even created the amazingly colorful cover art, which she does get the
credit for. It would be her first credit in the long list of great songs
to come. It also features the wonderful Danny Kirwan. A brilliant guitarist
that took his rightful position as band leader and main songwriter for
this album. He would be with the band another 4 years, but the first
American member, Bob Welch, would become the band leader by the next
recording. This is really a terrific album, and it shines with Buddy
Holly tributes and amazing, and might I add original blues riffs. It
certainly sounds like a bridge between the blues period Fleetwood Mac
and the more polished sound Lindsey and Stevie would eventually bring
to the band a mere five years later. I guess my mother used to play
this one back when I was a wee lad, but I didn't really fall in love
with it until I was way into my 20's. I didn't really understand the
greatness therein. Short, but very very sweet. This isn't my favorite
album by them, but neither is 'Rumours'. 'Rumors' isn't bad, but it
most likely will never be played as a Mid-Morning Recording; as it has
been obviously overplayed. 'Kiln House' is incredibly overlooked.
