Fleetwood Mac

Yeah, they did actually have a song called "Fleetwood Mac". But, it's on neither the 60's Green-era debut nor the 1975 Fleetwood Buckingham Nicks Mac christening. It was on that early 70s Green-era thing of outtakes called The Original Fleetwood Mac.

Sorta on topic:

XTC - The phrase "orange and lemon" appears in the lyrics of the album before Oranges and Lemons, and the word "nonsuch" on the album before Nonsuch

Hideous Lump, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 14:56 (one week ago) link

Maybe Partridge just has an appallingly limited vocabulary and uses those phrases in conversation all the time?

the phrase "Apple Venus" is on "Then She Appeared" too

I think the first two times were unintentional, but when someone pointed it out to Partridge he skimmed the Nonsuch lyrics for a good album title

ELP had a song called "Brain Salad Surgery" which was cut from the album, presumably for "Benny the Bouncer"

funny thing about that was I downloaded it from KaZaa back in the day where it was tagged as [unreleased, extremely rare], which led me to believe it was something that had gotten secretly leaked from "the vaults" and really wasn't available anywhere else. I later found out it was on Works Volume 2, lol
