Since this is the first post we would love to drop-in with a classic.
Most people are familiar with the later efforts of Fleetwood Mac with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham at the helm.
Some would rather choose to aknowledge the early "Blues Years" with Peter Green as the guiding force. In this post, I want to focus on a song from the transitional period between their British blues incarnation and the mega-pop band they would become. Released as a instrumental single in 1968, Albatross marked a departure from the blues-rock they had been playing into a style very much their own.
Combining a basic blues pattern with elements of calypso music, Albatross is a beautiful moody number that is sure to evoke a dreamy seaside afternoon between the sun and the warm sand. Although the single didn't chart in America, the ambient instrumental was a huge hit in the U.K., influencing an entire generation of guitarist to come. John Lennon pays tribute to Peter Green by using same pulsating feel of Albatross on the Abbey Road song Sun King.
