Failed relationships, failed marriages – including re-marriage to his first wife – failed financial management deals, cocaine addiction, bankruptcy, Mick Fleetwood’s lived through it all.

Reading through his autobiography, one forms the distinct impression that the one true constancy in his life has been his music, and more importantly, the continuation of Fleetwood Mac amidst varying musical trends, personnel differences, line-up changes and artistic squabbles. In fact, the one true marriage in his life has been the fifty year relationship he has nurtured with bassist John McVie, the rhythmic driving force behind the band. One suspects he realises all this now, if the final chapter of his book is anything to go by.

Better late than never ……………………

The Visitor (1981)

Before “Graceland.” there was “The Visitor.” Recorded in Ghana in 1981, Mick Fleetwood’s solo debut showcases heavy African stylisms for a wider western audience; or rather it would have if anyone had bought it.

Featuring an eclectic mix of African rhythms and British electric rock and blues, Fleetwood would utilise a a number of native musicians, including percussionist Lord Tiki, vocalist Ebaali Gbiko, vocals and more percussion by the Adjo Group, with additional vocals/percussion supplied by The Ghana Folklore Group. Also on hand were guitarists Todd Sharp and bassist George Hawkins. Ex-brother-in-law George Harrison contributes 12 string acoustic and slide guitar on Lyndsey Buckingham’s “Walk a thine line.”

Six of the tracks are not overt attempts at worldbeat, instead using a variety of West African musicians as sidemen, sidewomen, and, in the case of drum ensemble Ebaali Gbiko, sidechildren. Of these six tracks, several stand out. “Walk a Thin Line,” written by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, is an infectious pop song blending Adjo Group’s enchanting backing vocals with guest George Harrison’s lush 12-string and slide guitars. Another Fleetwood Mac veteran, Peter Greenbaum (aka Peter Green), accompanies a multinational percussion section for a remake of his “Rattlesnake Shake,” originally found on Then Play On. Even the Buddy Holly classic “Not Fade Away” gets supercharged with a percussion ensemble made up of Fleetwood on drums and Lord Tiki and Adjo Group on hand drums and percussion. The West African tracks that make up the remainder of the album are pure pleasure. “Super Brains” is a funk instrumental with a groove James Brown would be proud of; “The Visitor” features a synthesizer soaring above and growling beneath the Ghana Folkloric Group’s vocals and polyrhythmic percussion; and “Amelle” is a lovely finale that again showcases Adjo Group’s vocals. An underrated gem, The Visitor rewards repeated listening and deserves a wider audience.
