Eugene McDaniels, Eddie Boyd, Fleetwood Mac, Reinbert de Leeuw/Erik Satie and the soundtracks Alexander, Puzzle and Slender Man
Blues pianist Eddie Boyd's 7936 South Rhodes was recorded in London in January 1968 with three members of the early line-up of Fleetwood Mac: Peter Green (guitar), John McVie (bass), and Mick Fleetwood (drums). It's a tantalizing setting for Boyd's straight up Chicago piano Blues, going heavier on the slow-to-mid-tempo numbers than the high-spirited ones.
Fleetwood Mac, the self-titled debut album, was released in 1968, and was one of the highlights of the late British Blues movement, climbing to the #4 slot in the UK album charts without producing one single, and managing to stay in the charts for 37 weeks. It was a traditional blues album true to form, but one that also showcased Peter Green's budding singing and songwriting skills.
Alexander is the original film score of the film Alexander, and created by Greek electronic composer Vangelis. "I tried to remember how it was to live at the time, to be there.
