Jeremy Spencer

June 8, 2009 in Uncategorized

A wonderful old clip (turn up your volume, it's not the best sound) of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, with our Issue 90 cover star Jeremy Spencer singing and sliding..

Danny Kirwan (g), John McVie (b) and Mick Fleetwood (d), completing the line-up, of course.

    u gotta to love this brings memories seeing rthe mac tolworth toby jug in the late sixties its just great

  2. This band put a whole new spin on my life – Peter Green in particular. I was of that generation who heard this stuff even before we ever heard the Black dudes. Green will always be the ‘real deal’ for me and many like me – not to mention they were the best in terms of making the Blues a whole new bag through western minds and engaging minor chord melody chops. What a band. Saw them live in Aberdeen Music Hall – the night I was baptised in the blues! Hallelujah!

  3. yeah Dr Blues they were the real deal first time i saw them about 67/68 windsor jazz and blues fest they awesome not a word i normally use they were the bar everyone has to aim at and not many have reached their heights yet

    THE MAC WERE THE FIRST ENGLISH BAND I SEEN HERE IN BELFAST N.I SAW THEM THREE TIMES IN THE 60S. THOSE WERE THE DAYS WHEN THINGS WERE SO SIMPLE MUSICALLY, NO BIG EQUIPMENT( NO BIG STAGES NO BIG LIGHT SHOWS) TO WATCH P GREEN&J SPENCER LIVE WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE FOR A YOUNG BOY OF 13 . IT HELPED ME DEVELOP A LOVE FOR THE BLUES WHICH STILL CARRIES ON TODAY. A FEW YEARS AGO I GOT THE CHANCE TO SEE P GREEN&THE SPLINTER GROUP IN BELFAST AND IT WAS DEJAVU AGAIN NEARLY . .!THE FIRST FLEETWOOD MAC ALBUM AND J MAYALLS BEANO ALBUM ABSOLUTLY FIRST CLASS!

    I knew Jeremy when he played in the Lichfield area before he joined Fleetwood mac. What a great slide player! … It was the first time I had heard bottleneck guitar, and I`ve loved it ever since. Those early `mac days were the muts nuts!!

    This footage is taken from the november 3, 1969 show at the Njardhallen in Oslo (Norway). More can be found on the “Early Years” video. Too bad there is so little on film left of this magnificent line-up.

    What a night that was at the Toby Jug. One of the best nights ever can still remember it like it was yesterday. 100 club was a great venue in those days as well. Happy days.
