Fleetwood Mac

Cold Black Night

Song Review by

Although each of the songwriter/guitarists in the early Fleetwood Mac had their own individual style and sound, "Cold Black Night" finds them influencing each other to a great degree. In this song, Jeremy Spencer takes Peter Green's mysterious, neo-calypso style on, and the results are wonderfully swampy and evocative. This song also shows the band capable of handling a slow blues quite well, aside from their patented ability of boogie.
