Page 7 of the insert (the 6th internal page) contains the standard “Compact Disc info” that used to come as standard on CDs when they firtst appeared.
Page 6, however, contains the remarkable, and sadly anonymous “NOTES”, which kick off like this:
“After a series of personnel changes that saw the departure of two of the group’s founding members, Fleetwood Mac rebounded with one of the most significant and satisfying albums of their career. Released in late 1971, Future Games was a breathtaking musical pastiche that heavily featured the musical contributions of the band’s newest members, American Bob Welch and Christine McVie, wife of bassist John McVie and an essential component to the group’s new sound.
“Fleetwood Mac was formed in 1967 when McVie, drummer Mick Fleetwood and guitarist Peter Green left John Mayall’s legendary Bluesbreakers to form their own band. [Not quite true; John McVie did not join straight away, although he was meant so to do – see far above in this blog]. Recruiting Elmore James enthusiast Jeremy Spencer, the group played its first gig in August of that year at the British Jazz and Blues Festival and immediately landed a recording contract. Fleetwood Mac’s [first] self-titled debut was released later that year and was an immediate best-seller, yielding the hit single “Black Magic Woman”.
Not quite as I remember it – see far above. I wonder if this an American version?
More next time.
