The Original Fleetwood Mac--Stranger Blues

Fleetwood Mac is one of the most popular bands in Rock N' Roll history.  However, many of you might be unaware that Fleetwood Mac started out as a blues band.   The original Fleetwood Mac composed several songs that are (or were) Rock N' Roll classics including "Oh Well" which was made popular by a group called The Rockets back in the late 70's and "Black Magic Woman" which, of course, was made enormously popular by Santana.

The band was originally led by a guy named Peter Green and featured a power-trio of lead guitarists -- Peter Green, Danny Kirwin and Jeremy Spencer.  This Elmore James cover "Stranger Blues" features Jeremy Spencer on slide guitar.
