Before The Beginning? Fleetwood Mac gab es schon, noch bevor ihre bekannteste Version (nachdem Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks und Christine McVie dazugekommen waren) 1968 in allen Sendestationen ununterbrochen zu hören war. Die aus den Resten der Bluesbreakers hervorgegangene Gruppe – dank des genialen Peter Green (zusammen mit zwei weiteren Gitarristen, Jeremy Spencer und dem noch ganz jungen Danny Kirwan, sowie dem Schlagzeuger Mick Fleetwood und dem Bassisten John McVie) – schöpft aus dem Delta-Blues, indem sie dessen Legenden wie Robert Johnson, Elmore James, T-Bone Walker covert… Mit drei Alben erweckt Sony an die dreißig, erstmals veröffentlichte Live-Mitschnitte aus den Jahren 1968 und 1970 zu neuem Leben – darunter vier Demoversionen. Dass es diese Mitschnitte gibt, ist ein kleines Wunder, denn ohne irgendein Label sind sie durch die gnädigen Hände ihresgleichen gegangen, sodass wir nun eine recht kontrastreiche Vision vorliegen haben. Erste Anzeichen der 68er mit unterwürfigen, aber schwungvollen Gitarren. Dann die ausgeflippten 70er und die unterschwellige Implosion mit Greens langen, leidenschaftlich besessenen Instrumentaleinlagen wie etwa dieser 13-minütige erschütternde Rattlesnake Shake, dieser fuchsteufelswilde Oh Well oder der berühmte, schmachtende Albatross. Es handelt sich um schematische, weniger ausgearbeitete, ungeschliffene Versionen. Spencer sollte später zu den Children of God überlaufen, Kirwan wegen Alkoholproblemen hinausgeworfen werden und den genialen Peter Green treibt es endgültig in den Wahnsinn. Ein wahres Stück britischer Geschichte. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard

Santana’s CV boasts an iconic Woodstock performance, a dozen Grammy Awards, millions of record sales (thanks to his metamorphosis into a Latin pop star), and more and more prestigious collaborations... He’s one of those artists that everyone loves - peers, public and critics alike. Here, we explore the life of an accomplished artist who is constantly renewing himself, much like a lizard shedding its skin.

Fleetwood Mac: The Blues Period

Fleetwood Mac led two consecutive lives: a blues-driven outfit from the 1960s led by Peter Green, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, and another, a pop-rock band that became one of the most acclaimed groups of its era. Their 1977 album, “Rumours”, remains, forty years later, one of the best-selling records of all time and yet the band’s lesser-known early years are no less captivating.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
