I saw Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, as they were then called, at a small club in 1969. "Albatross" was a big hit single and they were fulfilling their pre-hit gig obligations, so still playing places like the Norwich Engineers' Club.
A wonderful blues band, Peter Green was one of the finest guitarists, far better (in my estimation) than Clapton, and a very soulful singer too. The main thing I remember about this gig was that Greenie played the entire set wearing a gorilla's head to disguise himself. I had my doubts, then, about how he felt about being in the public spotlight.
