Fleetwood Mac: Fleetwood Mac

Bud Scoppa, Circus, November 1975

FROM LISTENING to Fleetwood Mac, you'd think this once-definitive British blues band was a Southern California pop group – and you'd be right. The three remaining English members – drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassman John McVie, and keyboard player Chris-tine McVie – have moved to Los Angeles and traded in their first American member, guitarist Bob Welch, for a pair of Americans, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. These two have enabled the band to bring about the musical-cultural transition quite smoothly, and they're largely respon-sible for making this new LP Fleetwood Mac's best since 1973's lovely Bare Trees.
