180-gram vinyl, 2014 Blue Horizon Records reissue
Lacquers cut from the original master tapes
Only seven months after their explosive debut, and afforded the luxury of a gatefold sleeve, Fleetwood Mac's second studio album Mr. Wonderful was released in September 1968 on Blue Horizon Records.
Mr. Wonderful, with Peter Green in its ranks, followed up on their successful self-titled debut album. Delivering hard-edged, psychedelic and raw blues, the 12-track set stands as a staple of late-'60s blues-rock. Adding to the rowdy energy of the album is the fact that the band recorded these tracks live in the studio, without using a sound board. Mr. Wonderful introduced key member Christine Perfect (later McVie) of Chicken Shack on keyboards and even features a horn section. Standout cuts from the album include "Love That Burns," "Coming Home" and Elmore James' "Dust My Broom."
