Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac

℗ 1968 Blue Horizon S7 63200

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac • 1968 • Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac's debut LP was a highlight of the late '60s British blues boom. Green's always inspired playing, the capable (if erratic) songwriting, and the general panache of the band as a whole placed them leagues above the overcrowded field. Elmore James is a big influence on this set, particularly on the tunes fronted by Jeremy Spencer ("Shake Your Moneymaker," "Got to Move"). Spencer's bluster, however, was outshone by the budding singing and songwriting skills of Green. The guitarist balanced humor and vulnerability on cuts like "Looking for Somebody" and "Long Grey Mare," and with "If I Loved Another Woman," he offered a glimpse of the Latin-blues fusion that he would perfect with "Black Magic Woman." The album was an unexpected smash in the U.K., reaching No. 4 on the British charts. = Richie Unterberger.

Got to Move

Got To Move 

Written by Homesick James Williamson. 


You've got to move, you can't stay here no more
You've got to move, you can't stay here no more, oh yes
You're my baby, I love you so, 
but, still you've got to go - away from here

You won't cook, you won't wash
You won't iron, you won't sew
Oh, no, you won't even scrub the floor
You're my baby, I love you so, 
but, still you've got to go - away from here

Well, I'd rather be dead and in my grave
Then to see another man here to take my place
Oh, yes, you've got to move, yeah
You're my baby, I love you so, 
but still you've got to go away from here

break:

Well, I'd rather be dead and in my grave

You got to move, away from here
Oh, yes, you got to move, away from here
You're my baby, I love you so
But still you've got to go away from here
