Countless blues-rock guitar greats emerged during the late '60s — the most recognizable names being Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. But one who usually gets overlooked is the great Peter Green, who led Fleetwood Mac early in their career.

The Best of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac is an exceptional document of Fleetwood Mac's early years.
