The B-side features the international hit single "Albatross" and Peter Green's composition "Black Magic Woman", the latter being popularized by Santana's version in 1970. I am confidently awaiting the arrival of my new, Music On Vinyl, vinyl 2012 edition that should be the correct track listing. Danny Kirwin is the magician guitarist of those early years and he stayed with the group in albums, such as "Then play on", "Kiln house", "Bare trees", and "Future games" when Bob Welsh joined as a lead wizard guitarist.

The Pious Bird of Good Omen is a compilation album by the British blues rock band Fleetwood Mac, released in 1969.The US-only compilation English Rose was a similar package, sharing four songs with this album, and was released earlier in 1969. I have no beef with the later Mac but for me this album depicts what was great about the original band. All the reviews of this album and the Wikipedia page, say that both these songs come from Boyd’s album 7936 South Rhodes on which the three Mac members played. The phrase refers to the albatross killed in the poem ("The ancient Mariner inhospitably killeth the pious bird of good omen").

The original 1969 compilation has the first four non-album singles and their b-sides plus two tracks from the second album, Mr Wonderful and two tracks with Green, McVie and Fleetwood backing bluesman Eddie Boyd.

Quel régal de réécouter des titres comme: "Albatross", "black magic woman", jigsaw puzzle blues", pour ne citer qu'eux, que l'on écoutait dans les juke box à l'époque. Very nice clean pressing with some great tracks including Black Magic Woman and two tracks backing pianist Eddie Boyd.

In 2002, the tracks from this album were repackaged by Sony BMG and released as a new collection with cover art very closely resembling the Greatest Hits album (1971), but with the addition of " Shake Your Moneymaker" and "Love That Burns".The title of the album is a phrase found in an 1817 gloss (marginal note) to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1798 epic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. beautiful sounding record , nice to have this collection of songs off those early mac albums which are getting hard to find in good condition and expensive if you do find them .
