Fleetwood Mac, one of the dominant groups in the current blues scene in England, will appear in America for the first time in June, on record and in person. The feature performer of the group is guitarist Peter Green, who was Eric Clapton's immediate replacement in John Mayall's Blues Breakers.

Fleetwood Mac was formed a little over a year ago by Green (guitar, mouth harp and vocal) who composes most of the material with Jeremy Spencer (guitar and vocal). Mick Fleetwood (drums) and John McVie (bass) seem to have provided the name. The group's first album Fleetwood Mac and single "Black Magic Woman" will be released in June by Epic Records while they shuttle between the Carousel in San Francisco and the Golden Bear and Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

This is a story from the July 6th, 1968 issue of Rolling Stone.
