Waking Up With… HAIM Sisters Going Mental With FLEETWOOD MAC Cover

Works faster than caffeine

The power-pop sisters HAIM made a big name for themselves over the past
10 years with 3 albums and explosive live shows. Here’s an example of the L.A.
ladies’ dashing antics on stage with a bold cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s 1969 hit
Oh Well (written/sung by the late great blues soul PeterGreen).

Nnot an easy song to cover with its rollercoaster progression, forth and back,
and Green‘s blistering guitar flurry. But the girls pull it off with aplomb and vigor.

Get up and cheer, ladies and gents…

Amazing Artwork – FLEETWOOD MAC 1969

Eye-catching album cover art

The original FLEETWOOD MAC line-up (1967-1974) fronted by singer/songwriter Peter Green (1946-2020) was all about raw-riff blues-rock. They scored their greatest hits with magic ballad Albatross, the bewitching mid-tempo Black Magic Woman and the jaw-dropping classic Oh Well.

Back in 1969, the band released a compilation called English Rose
with founder and drummer Mick Fleetwood in drag on the cover.

One of those FM I classics, OH WELL

Gorgeous lady

Stephanie Lynn “Stevie” Nicks was born on 26 May 1948
in Phoenix, Arizona. Happy 73 to the natural born star.

From 1972-1973 she formed a duo with her boyfriend
Lindsay Buckingham. They released one album called
Buckinham Nicks in 1973.

In 1974 Nicks and Buckingham (awesome guitarist) joined Fleetwood Mac who,
after their blues legend Peter Green left, became a pop/rock band, mind you,
a brilliant one. Between 1975 and today the group released 8 studio albums
with, of course Rumours as their multi-million selling magnum opus in 1977.
Stevie made as many solo albums herself.

Turn Up The Volume’s picked these three big Stevie moments…

– RHIANNON –
(Written by Nicks. On FM’s eponymous 1975 LP)

– DREAMS –
(Written by Nicks. From the ‘Rumours’ album)

– THE DEALER –
(From her 2014 solo album 24 Karat Gold)

The Late Great PETER GREEN And DAVID GILMOUR Need Your Love So Bad

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

8 May 2021


(Peter Green: far right)

PETER GREEN (29 October 1946 – 25 July 2020), co-founder of the original
‘blues’ Fleetwood Mac, is regarded by many (fans and critics) as the heart
and soul of the band’s initial incarnation.

One of their greatest hits was NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD – #2 in the UK in 1968 –
was originally a big hit for Little Willie John in 1955.

Now a new version has come to the surface featuring vocals from the late Peter Green
and a newly recorded guitar part from former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.

Check it out…
