Fleetwood Mac, perhaps more than any other band, has several very distinct - and successful - identities. The music they were creating in 1967 may sound dissimilar to what came only ten years later in the shape of Rumours, their best known album, but there was an important throughline in the form of two key band-members, the rhythm section of drummer Mick Fleetwood (b. 1947) and bassist John McVie (b. 1945). The roots of Fleetwood Mac lay here, along with other founder member, blues guitarist Peter Green (b. 1946). 

Unknown to many Americans, John Mayall is a legendary figure in British music and is best known for his outfit The Bluesbreakers. John McVie became a member of the band in 1963 and remained for four-a-half-years, while Green joined in 1966, swiftly followed by Fleetwood in April 1967. The latter’s stay was cut short when he was unceremoniously booted from the band a month later. In June of that year, Green decided to leave and contacted Mick, wanting to start a new band. John was also asked to be a part of this venture but was hesitant to leave and remained under contract with Mayall; Bob Brunning was therefore recruited as bassist. In short course, they were signed to Blue Horizon and began work on  a first single ('I Believe My Time Ain't Long'), ably assisted by slide guitarist Jeremy Spencer (b. 1948). At this juncture, 'Rambling Pony' plus 'Long Grey Mare' were also recorded, with the latter finding a home on Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. John McVie reconsidered and accepted the offer to join in September of 1967, and Brunning amicably left the group, having known it was likely to only be a temporary position.
