A book showcasing the legendary Fleetwood Mac blues session at Chicago’s Chess Studios in January 1969
Taken by the only photographer present, some of these photos were originally shown on the first release of the album recorded that day:
Fleetwood Mac in Chicago
. Now, for the first time, all of the color and black-and-white shots from that day are presented in one collection, including many that have never before been published.
Along with founding Fleetwood Mac members Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Mick Fleetwood, and John McVie, the major Chicago blues musicians featured at the session, including Willie Dixon, Otis Spann, and Buddy Guy, are shown in high-quality images, created directly from the author's original negatives. Forewords by both producers present at the session, Mike Vernon MBE, and Marshall Chess, provide the setting for the music created that day. Also featured throughout the book are recollections by many of Fleetwood Mac’s contemporaries, such as Kim Simmonds, Aynsley Dunbar, and Martin Barre, as well as a new interview with Buddy Guy.
The resulting volume is sure to be a must-have that belongs on every fan's and collector's bookshelf.
