Future Games


I will be the first to admit that this is not nearly as good as the version on the Fleetwood Mac album. But it is not terrible. I used to think that Fleetwood Mac meant Peter Green but as I get older I keep coming back to the playing and beautiful vocals of Welch and Kirwan, as illustrated on the albums Bare Trees and Kiln House and Future Games. What beautiful songs from this period. Bob Welch brought many of them, including Sentimental Lady, Future Games and Hypnotized. His life had a very sad ending, committing suicide after a terrible bout with spinal problems that his doctor said he would never recover from.
