My Blues Jam in Chicago lists;

Volume 1:
Watch Out: Peter, Danny, John, Mick
Ooh Baby: Peter, John, Mick
South Indiana: Peter, Danny, John, Mick
Last Night: Peter, Danny, John, Mick
Red Hot Jam: Peter, Mick
I'm Worried:Jeremy, Danny, Mick
I Held My Baby Last Night:Jeremy, Danny, Mick
Madison Blues:Jeremy, Danny Mick
I Cant Hold Out:Jeremy, Danny, Mick
I Need Your Love:Peter, Danny, John
Horton's Boogie Woogie: Peter, Danny, John
I Got the Blues: Peter, Danny, John
Bobby's Rock: Jeremy, Peter, Mick

Can't find Volume 2

Looks about the same as what you have.
Looking through the book Fleetwood Mac: The Complete Recording Sessions 1967-1997' it seems to concur with the above.

However there are two discrepancies with what you've listed;
Talk With You: Danny, Peter, John (Mick is supplanted by SP Leary)
Like it This Way: Danny, Peter, John (Mick is supplanted by SP Leary)

The original release was Blues Jam at Chess

Hey, I don't know for sure...I'm just going off what I'm reading:
Fleetwood Mac: The Complete Recording Sessions 1967-1997 by Peter Lewry

Mick isn't listed as playing on the majority of the tracks OS recorded;
I Need Your Love
I Got the Blues
World's in a Tangle
Talk With You
Like it This Way

MF is listed playing with OS on;
Someday Soon Baby
Hungry Country Girl
Homework

I'm aware Mick sat out The Biggest Thing Since Colossus. I don't know the circumstances behind that. Did Spann take exception to Mick's playing?

sadly i can't really read the according writing on the picture of the reel boxes, but i'd say mr. lewry is probably wrong on this, as a) he seems to be the only one with this opinion, b) mick's style of drumming can be detected rather easily on the recording (being quite different to s.p. leary's) and c) in doubt i'd rather trust the info of producer mike vernon (he was definitely there).

as for the "colossus" sessions - again according to mike vernon - otis was keen on playing with the mac again, but insisted on his long-standing / trusted sideman leary to occupy the drum stool.

I am sure you're right. I've never really intently and consciously listened to drumming. To my untrained ear Leary's playing is more up front, fussy, and on the beat (though that description may be completely off).
