AllMusic Review by

Comprised of songs from the early, hard-edged blues-based Fleetwood Mac, before they morphed into the polished rock act for which they will forever be known, Collection Gold is an excellent overview of the group's roots and the vision of guitarists Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer. The raw groove of one of Green's most famous compositions, "Black Magic Woman," the beautiful atmospherics of "Albatross," and the shuffling cover of the Howlin' Wolf tune "No Place to Go" certainly highlight the early days of Fleetwood Mac and serve to document a fascinating group who commanded as much importance in the British psychedelic blues scene as much as the American pop scene.
