The future says it all!
Review written by Mike, August 20th, 2004
This is Fleetwood Mac at their transition. Peter Green already gone after " Then Play On " leaving Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan to carry on with " Kiln House " Although a great tribute to Buddy, Elvis, Carl Perkins and such Station Man and Jewelled Eyed Judy are all that really do it for me there! Ah, But! Then we have the Yank save the the day! In what I would think would be the start of the demise, becomes my favorite Mac Album. ( can we still call them that ? )
Heroes Are Hard To Find
One of the best Mac albums
Review written by Mike (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Buffalo, NY, August 18th, 2004
From my first listen of Fleetwood Mac's 1974 LP "Heroes Are Hard To Find" i was intrigued by it. The Bob Welch-era Fleetwood Mac has always been my favorite, and highly overrated. That one guy's homepage review of "Heroes Are Hard To Find" is way off. Bob Welch's efforts are the strongest on this LP than any of his other Mac albums. "Silver Heels" is one of the best songs he ever wrote, "Angel" is a great rocker, "Bermuda Triangle" is the typical Bob Welch mysticism, "She's Changing Me" is another Welch influenced by a female track and he toots his own horn with "Born Enchanter". Christine's tracks set the stage for what was to come from her in Fleetwood Mac. "Heroes Are Hard To Find" is a great opening track, with good lyrics, although the horn section could've been mixed a little bit stronger, "Come A Little Bit Closer" should've been a hit single, "Bad Loser" and "Prove Your Lover" are great tracks as well. "Heroes Are Hard To Find" is an album that i hope people who buy the 1975 "Fleetwood Mac" album will go out and get to listen to the effort before the big time hit the band. I've always wondered what Mac would've been like if Welch stayed for a little longer.
