The loss of founding member Peter Green dealt a blow to Fleetwood Mac which it took them five years to assimilate. Numerous changes in personnel robbed them of focus until Californian singer-songwriters Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham joined the ranks. The duo introduced a new dynamism to the group, their bright, melodious compositions offsetting the earthier muse of pianist/vocalist Christine McVie. Buckingham’s quicksilver guitarwork energized the group’s pulsating rhythm section, regaining, at last, the sense of purpose marking early releases. Titling the album Fleetwood Mac suggested a new beginning, which indeed it was. This set saved the group from ignominy, and turned them into one of the world’s leading rock bands.
