Fleetwood Mac

Got to Move

Song Review by

The final song on Fleetwood Mac's debut album finds the group covering a song by one of their idols, Sonny Boy Williamson. A knee-deep, mid-tempo groove is the basis for this fabulous ensemble piece, which gives all the bandmembers room to stretch their chops. The sense of dark sexuality, crossed with almost comical blues whimsy is more than apparent here, and the band's tough, no-nonsense attitude is one of the finest on the album. A perfect closing song to a near-perfect album.
