The (anonymous) potted history from the CD insert:
” With material highlighting the group’s consummate pop craftmanship, Fleetwood Mac’s Heroes Are Hard To Find features 11 original tunes ranging from the evocative love songs of Christine McVie (“Bad Loser”, “Prove Your Love”, “Come A Little Closer”) to the atmospheric explorations of Bob Welch (“Bermuda Triangle”, “Angel”, “Born Enchanter”). It is an LP that captures the legendary group in some of their most adventurous and evocative musical moods.
“Formed in 1967 by the brilliant blues guitarist Peter Green, the original Fleetwood Mac included drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassist John McVie and guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Spencer. The group released their self-titled debut album in 1968 [my emphasis] and, with the addition of a third guitarist, Danny Kirwan, followed it with a series of landmark LP’s [sic], including Mr. Wonderful, English Rose and Then Play On. In 1969, Green and Spencer cut Fleetwood Mac In Chicago with Willie Dixon, Otis Spann and other blues patriarchs, but even then the group was moving away from its blues format and, in 1970, Green left, opening the way for greater stylistic diversity.
Fleetwood Mac, which now included singer Christine Perfect (later McVie), formerly of the group Chicken Shack, underwent further personnel changes with the departure of Jeremy Spencer who was replaced by guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch in early 1971. The LPs Future Games and Bare Trees followed. Two more albums, Penguin (1973) and Mystery To Me (1974) reflected still more personnel changes with the departure of Kirwan and the addition of guitarist/vocalist Bob Weston and vocalist Dave Walker. [Details of all this can be found above].
For Heroes Are Hard To Find the group pared back to a foursome: Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie and Bob Welch. Released in September, 1974, the album is produced by Fleetwood Mac and Bob Hughes.”
Imperfect though these notes may be, treasure them; their like would not be seen again.
