Wallingford 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Trodd Nossel Studios, Wallingford, CT; September 23, 1975. (According to the wiki, the date should be September 3 as on September 23, the band performed at the Mary Sawyer Auditorium, La Crosse, Wisconsin.) Rebroadcast May 19, 2010. Very good FM.

This has been reported to be Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham’s first public performance with the band. However, might not be the case as the 1975 Fleetwood Mac tour started on August 7.

Thanks to mdshrk1 for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

Thanks also to Edge for posting the “extra” two tracks on the net.

  3. Yes, what a pleasure. Thank you!

    some Buckingham-Nicks would be interesting too.

  4. Wish they would have changed their name.
    To me, Fleetwood Mac was at their best as a blues band with Peter Green and to hear them try and ape the Green-era tracks just doesn`t cut it for me
    This version of the “Mac” is great in its own way , they didn`t need to try and recreate the blues era they were a tremendous pop rock band on their own.

  6. since it was named after john mcvie and mick fleetwood and they didnt leave the band there was no reason to rename the band in 75. or even in 72 etc.

    By darth on Jul 4, 2014

  7. Glen, it was named by Peter Green, the founder of the band, in a succesful ploy to convince Mick Fleetwood and John McVie to join (though it took a little time with McVie, so that he wasn’t yet in the band when they made their earliest recordings).

    By Willis on Jul 4, 2014

  8. who named it isnt the point. who it was named after is the point. the fact that they were still in the band when the line up changed and that some ppl think that they should have changed the name at that time is the point i am making. the fact that the two people who the band was named after were still in the band when the line up changed and therefore there was no reason to change the name is the only point i am making.
    both john and mick were in the band when they made those earliest recordings.

  9. since it was named after john mcvie …

    who named it isnt the point….

  10. anything to stir it up eh darth?

    By wokka wokka the dog on Jul 4, 2014

  11. i didnt stir it up. im explaining why it wouldnt have made sense to change their name. what youre doing is attempting to stir it up.

    By darth on Jul 4, 2014

  12. Wrong again, Glen. Mick and John were NOT both in the band when they made their earliest recordings. From your favorite source of information, Wikipedia:

    Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in 1967 in London. Due to numerous line-up changes, the only original member present in the band is its namesake, drummer Mick Fleetwood. Although band founder Peter Green named the group by combining the surnames of two of his former bandmates (Fleetwood, McVie) from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, bassist John McVie played neither on their first single nor at their first concerts, as he initially decided to stay with Mayall.

    By tin ear frohman on Jul 5, 2014

  15. Thanks, GMAL!
    (And, of course, thanks, BIGO!)

  16. Nice to hear the beginning of this era. I like how Lindsey presents the prior eras. But way too much Stevie on ‘Hypnotized’. She needs a more subtle approach to the song in my (worthless) opinion. (Overpowering the lead)

    Thanks Big O!

  20. Mac was one of my favorite bands until Bob Welch and Danny Kirwan left and Buckingham/Nicks arrived….then they got uber popular and the songs turned into Pop Anthems as well.

    Too bad the guy didn’t use a decent tuner to record this, that Sangean is one of the worst tuners ever built….Oh Well (pun intended)

  21. The history behind the rough diamond told a beautiful story of the legend..Fleetwood Mac!
    Hats off to Welsh, Kirwan and Mick! Bravo, John Christene Lindsay and Stephanie! ☆☆☆☆☆

    By Bonnie on Aug 19, 2015

  22. Wow hard to believe Stevie Nicks’s voice ever sounded that pure before the Yeyo took her down an octive! My son once shared a cab with her when she had to go back to the hotel to get a box of Lindsey Buckingham’s custom made picks he’d left behind! And yes I know Lindsey doesn’t use picks but Im only repeating my sons story!

    By Darths mother on Aug 19, 2015
