Default FM Record Plant Sausalito December 1974

I just got my copy of this unofficial FM record. Very interesting!!!
Bob Welch singing and playing The Green Manalishi, Oh Well and Black Magic Woman live... Christine: Spare me a little, Why and Believe me... Angel, Sentimental Lady, Future Games, Bermuda Triangle, Rattlesnake Shake, Hypnotized... Live! All my favorites!
I just love Bob's voice and John's bass playing knocks me of my feet.
Just WOW!

Anyone?

Anna

Interesting you should post this; I was just thinking of this show the other day for some reason. I love Bob Welch, too. That was a great show!

Here's the "Real" Fleetwood Mac Playing "Black Magic Woman" in 1974
One of the group's final shows before Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks arrived to usher in a new era of radio rock.


Did you know that Paste owns the world’s largest collection of live music recordings? It’s true! And what’s even crazier, it’s all free—hundreds of thousands of exclusive songs, concerts and videos that you can listen to and watch right here at Paste.com, from B.B. King to The Stones to Tom Petty to Public Enemy. Every day, we’ll dig through the archive to find the coolest recording we have from that date in history. Search and enjoy!

The brief and awkward window between Fleetwood Mac’s late ‘60s start as a pioneering British blues band and their mid-’70s reign as a pop juggernaut is often neglected by fans and historians alike. This period was full of personnel changes, beginning with the departure, in 1970, of the band’s founder and leader, guitarist Peter Green, as he slipped further into drug-induced insanity. In 1974, Fleetwood Mac were a still a year away from re-charting their course with new additions Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. In fact, at the time, the group’s previous management had a bogus Fleetwood Mac out on the road, so the band wasn’t just competing with the glory of a previous lineup; they were also battling to make it clear that they were indeed the real Fleetwood Mac.

This recording, captured on Dec. 15, 1974, at the Record Plant in Sausalito, Calif., captures the lineup fronted by Bob Welch and Christine McVie performing some of their finest material of that era, including a few tributes to Green. Late in the set, the band alights on three Green classics: “Black Magic Woman” (which originally appeared in 1968 as a Fleetwood Mac single, but would of course become a huge hit for Santana in 1970), “Oh Well” and “Rattlesnake Shake.”

This recording marks one of the last existing live documents of Fleetwood Mac with Welch on board. Like Green, Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwin before him, Welch too would soon depart to pursue a solo career, leaving the band in search of another frontman/guitar player. They had no idea what kind of astronomical success lay in store for them.

I LOVE this Record Plant recording. OMG. I remember taping it from the radio around 1983. They play all the great early Mac tunes and Why is extra special. They open with an amazing The Green Manalishi and I LOVE Christine's keyboards on this. Bermuda Triangle, Sentimental Lady, and Hypnotized are extra special.
The date of this concert always fascinated me. Its just 2 weeks before Stevie and Lindsey join the band. Mick probably already heard Frozen Love. I am so thankful Bob did this concert before leaving. Its a classic.

Love the recordings from this era. I have a bootleg CD I purchased years ago. My brother tried to steal it. I mean, that's how good it is!

The talking parts of Bermuda Triangle used to actually scare me as a kid. The song is so mystical and spooky in parts
