§Cover Art-Domesticated Mural Painting (1917) by Maxwell Armfield
Produced by: Fleetwood Mac

Note: The greatest record Fleetwood Mac ever made—suffered from trackitis betwixt the UK, US, & the US reissue in 1970.
Read the whole story here , cause I ain't repeating it! (see last note)
2023 Update: Why so little participation by Spencer? He was promised an EP to be included with the album. Needless to say .

Another clueless Rolling Stone magazine review
John Morthland (12/13/69) said Fleetwood Mac had fallen "flat on their faces", "Most of the music on the album is slow and wandering — instruments in search of an idea." and later dismissed the album as mostly "nondescript ramblings."
