Default From the Beginning 1968-1970

Two live recordings featuring Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac have been found and are being released officially on CD and vinyl as Before The Beginning 1968-1970.

The recently discovered recordings date from 1968 and 1970 and were discovered unlabelled in the US, so not much is known about them other than they have been authenticated by experts and approved for release by Fleetwood Mac.

These live performances almost bookend Peter Green’s tenure with the band as the 1968 recording represents the band in their early stages while the 1970 recording will, in contrast, be one of their final shows before Peter left the band. The earlier set contains early incarnations of ‘Madison Blues’ and ‘I Need Your Love So Bad’ from the blues era and the likes of ‘Long Tall Sally’ and ‘Willie And The Hand Jive’. The 1970 performance includes ‘Oh Well’, ‘Green Manalishi’ and the UK number one ‘Albatros’.

Before The Beginning 1968-1970 is being issued as a three-CD set containing all the live recordings and four previously unreleased demos. The images suggest that this comes packaged in what looks like a seven-inch book format.

In terms of vinyl, this content is being split into two volumes. ‘Volume One’ is a 3LP set that features the 1968 live recording and will be issued in June with the triple CD package. A second volume with the 1970 live recording (and the demos) will be released at a later date.

Before The Beginning 1968-1970: Rare Live and Demo Sessions will be released on 7 June 2019, via Sony CMG.

. . . aaaaahh, yes - keep it coming! i only hope that the sound quality doesn't leave too much to be desired. and too bad there are no recording details provided - so professional and amateur mac detectives should get to work . . .

i just listened to a short soundbite of "albatross" on amazon, and if this one's indicative for the remainder of the 3 cds, then we're in for an enjoyable release!

Looks good to me. I wonder if the “demos” are from the BBC recordings.

somewhere i read that this release would comprise only previously unreleased material - hmmm . . . well, as long as i can't have a listen to it, i'll be cautious.

Aside from the fact that it's one of Peter's superb, haunting compositions, I wonder why the decision to title the set that way?
