First You Love Me, Then You Get on Down the Line

FleetwoodMonday mornings are about as celebratory as striking a 10d x 3in nail through your foot, but that didn’t stop the newly formed supergroup (circa: 1975), Fleetwood Mac, from churning out a righteous soundtrack that pairs perfectly with a stiff cup of joe on this, the beginnings of another working week.

Written by Lindsey Buckingham, Monday Morning launches the 1975 self-titled album (the band’s second… self-titled that is), and features, for the first time, the inclusion of the now defunct, but once romantic pair, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

  1. It’s a great story, isn’t it? How the Mac wanted to recruit Lindsay Buckingham for the revolving door male guitarist/singer spot and he insisted that he and his girlfriend came as a package. A couple of years later they’re breaking up (along with the McVies) and chalking up one of the biggest selling albums of all time.
