Fleetwood Mac 1969-1972 (Box Set)Features Four Complete Albums: Then Play On, Kiln House, Future Games, And Bare Trees
Contains An Exclusive Replica Of The Original 1969 7 Single: "Oh Well - Pt. 1" b/w "Oh Well - Pt. 2."
FLEETWOOD MAC: 1969-1972 is a beautiful vinyl boxed set that collects four of the band's classic albums, each lovingly reproduced on 140-gram vinyl. As a bonus, the set comes with an exclusive replica of the original 1969 7-inch single of "Oh Well - Pt. 1" b/w "Oh Well - Pt. 2."
FLEETWOOD MAC: 1969-1972 features four complete albums - Then Play On (1969), Kiln House (1970), Future Games (1971) and Bare Trees (1972) - housed in a striking black slipcase. To ensure superb sound quality, Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering cut the lacquers for all four albums. The records look as good as they sound thanks to authentically reproduced packages, including gatefolds for Then Play On and Kiln House and single sleeves for Future Games and Bare Trees.
The set follows the band through an early transitional period. With Kiln House, Fleetwood Mac began moving toward a more melodic pop sound on songs like "Mission Bell" and "One Together." At the time, the band included: Jeremy Spencer (guitar, vocals, piano), Kirwan (guitar, vocals), John McVie (bass) and Mick Fleetwood (drums). Christine McVie was at the recording sessions and contributed backing vocals and the album's cover art, but she did not join the band until shortly after the album was finished.
The band's shift toward pop and folk styles continued on Future Games with songs like "Show Me A Smile" and "Morning Rain." This marks the first Fleetwood Mac album with Christine McVie as a full band member as well as the Mac debut of Bob Welch on guitar.
The line-up stayed the same for Bare Trees, which boasts a consistently strong collection of songs like McVie's "Spare Me A Little Of Your Love," Kirwan's "Dust" and Welch's "Sentimental Lady." Although Kirwan was a dominant figure during the recording, penning half of the songs, this would ultimately be his last appearance on a Fleetwood Mac album.Then Play On (1969)

The Pious Bird of Good Omen (Speakers Corner)
After the break-up of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in the summer of 1967, the time seemed ripe for Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood to take their leave from raw British rock 'n' roll. The newly established band Fleetwood Mac first turned to black blues, and their art of playing was so similar to that of other groups that the magazine Eye criticised them for their »almost ridiculous mimicry«. However, their choice of performance style took them in the right direction and in 1969, the year in which The Pious Bird Of Good Omen appeared, they landed at the top end of the pop charts, even ahead of The Beatles and Stevie Wonder.
Of course, in the cover version of Little Willie John's Need Your Love So Bad, which is treated with a velvety string sound, and other bluesy songs, the American influence still makes itself heard, but not without success! The highly individual sound of the group comes best through in the now legendary numbers such as the weightless, gliding Albatross and Black Magic Woman with its Latin and blues elements. Judged the best British blues ever to be played (allmusic.com), one can now sit back and enjoy this great album.

About Speakers Corner
At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.
During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.
A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.
We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.
We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.
To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. Need Your Love So Bad

Boston Vol. 1 (Out of Stock)
Live Recordings Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
Boston - Volume 1 is an Double LP which collects live recordings
from an earlier era of the band's colourful history. The set features
the classic blues line-up of Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer.
Originally recorded at the Boston Tea Party venue over three nights
in February 1970, for a planned release later the same year, these
recordings were left in the can, unissued, following leader Peter
Green's sudden decision to leave the band a few weeks after the
dates. Tracks from the shows were eventually released in various
forms in the mid-80s but these releases were blighted by poor
sound sources. The discovery of the original 8-track tapes and a
number of previously unreleased tracks in the late 90s allowed the
material to be re-mixed, re-mastered, and substantially overhauled for
vinyl release.1. Black Magic Woman

Boston Vol. 2 (Out of Stock)Re-Mastered Vintage Live Recordings From The Original Tapes Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
In 2013 Fleetwood Mac embarked on a massive world tour. The dates so far saw the band
playing sold-out shows to huge arena crowds and created another surge of interest in this
June 10th 2014 sees Madfish release Fleetwood Mac's Boston Volume 2 as a gatefold 2LP
set which collects live recordings from an earlier era of the band's colourful history. The set
features the classic blues line-up of Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie
and Jeremy Spencer.

The discovery of the original 8-track tapes and a number of previously unreleased tracks in the late 90s allowed the material to be re-mixed, re-mastered, and substantially overhauled for release, and Boston Volume 2 follows on from the previous Madfish Records 3 CD set - Boston Volume 1 released in 2013. Introducing Boston Volume 2 is the floating "World in Harmony," the only Peter Green /Danny Kirwin co-written track in the Fleetwood Mac catalogue, and one that, has never appeared on a studio album. The Kirwin/Green interplay throughout the legendary live set is stunning as they push each other past previous limits, driven by the forceful rhythm section of John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.
This new set brings together all of these remastered recordings as a 2 LP set to present the
next instalment of these historic shows.LP1
