I must admit that period of Fleetwood Mac has passed me by. But people on this board have been positive about it.

They had no original album success in the years 1971-75 in the UK, though in North America their popularity was steadily rising.


Welch was the first American to join Fleetwood Mac and he was very instrumental between when Green and Spencer left in '70 and '71 respectively and when Kirwan left in '72. In fact, Welch and Kirwan recorded two albums together, "Future Games" and "Bare Trees". "Future Games" is rather experimental. Welch was a member from '71-'74 and again as I mentioned kept them afloat until Nicks and Buckingham joined in '74. Welch left and unfortunately never received his due, IE wasn't inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame w/the rest of them. Also, the five of the more successful commercial line-up contributed earlier during Welch's post FM solo career.

"Fleetwood Mac" self-titled was released in 1975 and a collection of hits, but "Rumours" was when they really took off obviously.... I love this "Fleetwood Mac" track:

Fleetwood Mac had a low profile in the UK during their touring and legal struggles of the 70s. They had no hits.

Ironically, Stretch, the band formed partly out of the 'touring Fleetwood Mac' set up by Clive Davis and Mick Fleetwood, did have a big hit.
