Subject: Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well Parts 1 & 2
From: Dave the Gnome

Just listening to both parts of this grand oldie from Fleetwood Mac before the girls replaced Peter Green ( ;-S )

Part 1 would be welcomed, I think, at any rock/blues club and even the more liberal folk clubs. Part 2 is completely different. In it's own way a cracker but seemingly out of step with most of FM's other stuff and, seemingly, nothing to do with part 1. Anyone got any insights as to why they did this?

Cheers

No insight but I have always thought the two together would make an awesome music video. Starts with guy drinking beer in a dive bar while a funky band (maybe behind chicken wire) is playing this wild music in 17/12 time (or whatever it is). He gets up and goes outside for some air, and the music changes. He turns back around and the bar is gone. He turns back around and the town is gone: it's just him on the sand. Then he wanders, sun beating down on him, becomes caked in sweat, etc., until finally he crawls back into the bar, where a different band is playing this ethereal music. Just as the music ends the bartender tells him, "I told you it was a mistake to drink so many beers in a row on such a hot day."

O..O

It is actually quite logical when you know the story. Peter Green met a girl who remarked upon her "ordinariness" and thought she had "skinny" legs. The young Peter Green started going out with her and she took him to a classical music concert. The first part tells the story of the original meeting at a gig and the second part is meant to evoke the atmosphere of the classical concert. I happen to think it is a wonderful piece of music too.

The second part has always seemed to me to have essences of a Mexican western movie. (Hence my music video)

Don't you laugh about the state I'm in. I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin.

Ahhhh - All makes sense now:-)

Thanks alanabit.

Is my memory skewed or does 'Layla' (Derek and the Dominoes / Eric Clapton) do something similar? Ie - wanders off into slow classical mode?

Cheers

Not really 'classical' but it does slow down, become piano-led and (to be blunt) go on a bit!!

I'd always thought the two bits of 'Oh well' related to the differing drug experiences Peter Green had 'encountered'.....

Incidentaly - It os a 'greatest hits' compilation sometime after the two bits of 'Oh Well' is 'Dragonfly'. Can't say I remember it first time round but that is a cracker as well!

Here it is if anyone's interested. Highly recommended from this rocking bluesy Gnome:-)

Or I have it on MP3 if anyone is interested. Not that I would illegaly share it of course but if you PM me I can not send it you...
