Originally formed in 1966, The Fritz Rabyne Memorial Band consisted of Jody Moreing, Cal Roper, Bob Aguirre and Lindsey Buckingham. By the end of summer 1967, the group was comprised of Brian Kane (lead guitar), Bob Aguirre (drums), Javier Pacheco (keyboards), Stevie Nicks (vocals), and Lindsey Buckingham (bass). In 1968 they began their professional career playing gigs in San Francisco, and before long they were opening for acts such as Santana, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. The group officially disbanded in 1971.

Buckingham Nicks is the debut and sole studio album by the American rock duo Buckingham Nicks. Produced by Keith Olsen, the album was released in September 1973 by Polydor Records. Buckingham Nicks is notable as an early commercial collaboration between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, both of whom later joined Fleetwood Mac. The album was a commercial failure on its original release, and despite the duo's subsequent success, it has yet to be commercially remastered or re-released. The rights now belong to the pair.
