Oh well - Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac were formed in 1967 in London by Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer and John McVie. They released their self-titled debut album in February 1968. Six months later, 'Mr Wonderful', their second album was released. Both albums were very blues-oriented. Shortly after the release of their second album Fleetwood Mac added guitarist Danny Kirwan to their line-up. With him they recorded their third album 'The pious bird of good omen'. They soon made their last all-blues recordings, as they changed label and changed style.

Even though The Beatles wanted the band on Apple Records (Mick Fleetwood and George Harrison were brothers-in-law), the band's manager Clifford Davis decided to go with Warner Bros. Records, the label they have stayed with ever since. Their first album for Warner, released in September 1969, was the well-regarded 'Then play on'. This album contained the single 'Oh well', a single that became a number 1 hit in the Netherlands and a number 2 hit in the UK singles chrat in the autumn of 1969.
