Album of the Day
Then Play On
Originally part of the British blues boom, Fleetwood Mac was among the most popular groups in that style by the time THEN PLAY ON was released in 1969. The quintet's stellar third studio album was the first with guitarist-songwriter Danny Kirwan and would be the last with founding member Peter Green. The group's inaugural collection for Warner/Reprise includes such highlights as “Rattlesnake Shake,” “Searching For Madge” and “Coming Your Way.” Drawing on influences that go well beyond the blues and making extensive use of editing and overdubbing for the first time, THEN PLAY ON hints at the Mac's future glories while standing confidently on its own.
