Permalink Fleetwood Mac "Albatross" - from 1969

Calling Mel Waldorf! This song sounds almost exactly like the Meltones' "Kava Kava" (or vice versa, apparently). The similarities are uncanny! Either it's an amazing coincidence or Mel has some explaining to do. Wink

For reference, check the (short) cdbaby clip here.

Mel's label specializes in syncronization and somebody asked for "Albatross", so they asked Mel to do a song with the same feel. Didn't get picked up, though. I love that album, Surf Spy Space.

I had Heard the Albatross was a tribute, to the Shadows version of Sleepwalk.
I think I read that on the liner notes to a surf comp, that has Mac doing Albatross on it.

the surf connection being that many surf bands cover the Santo and Johnny version.
and that is my cue for a bathroom break when a band plays Sleepwalk.

That's why we cover Brian Setzer's version Very Happy

That is nice Billy!

Thanks Brian! Short, but sweet tune.

Be careful following the masses. Sometimes the "M" is silent...........................

Billy I agree that the acoustic guitar really sets up the electric in this version of the song.

A nice surf arrangement of Albatross by The Charades from Finland.

This was an exercise in how wrong a fellow can be. When I heard that, my first thought was that sounded like it bore the influence of Bob Welch, but it’s a Peter Green song, and a great one at that. Love the drip the rhythm player is getting.
