Thoughts of you
Spinning round
As thoughts do
I just wondered if
Your eyes still shine
As they did
When you were mine

I can see
In a dream
Thougts so clear
And jewels that gleam
Would your eyes
Still sparkle then
If we were, once again

Jewel eyed Judy please come home
Jewel eyed Judy don't leave me alone
Jewel eyed Judy please come home
Jewel eyed Judy don't leave me alone

Lovely Judy
Can you see
Where it is
You're meant to be
Where you lay
Your head tonight
May the stars
Find your light
So am I
Sitting here
Moonlight glistens
On my tears
Is this all
That we could find
Chains of memories
Left behind

Jewel eyed Judy please come home
Jewel eyed Judy don't leave me alone
Jewel eyed Judy please come home
Jewel eyed Judy don't leave me alone

Sad loss. Miss you Danny.
 

Sad loss. Miss you Danny.
I had that album back in the day, and swapped it for something else. I bought the CD a few years ago and it's much better than I remembered. IMO, the best track is Danny's Earl Grey, a simple (on first listen) and captivating instrumental - right up there with Albatross.A few years ago, at a jam session, I borrowed a Les Paul with Soap Bar pick ups, although I wasn't playing a Mac song, the tone was pure Danny. I offered to buy it but no deal, and I've lost tough with the guy who had it. :(
Zorn: 
Thank you for putting this near my ears so long ago.
Ah, Danny, there's a damned good reason Peter Green invited you to join the Mac. Anything less than a Godlike 10 rating would be an insult.

Precisely  : )
{#Cowboy} spencer and kirwin together was definitely zesty !
The guitar work in the middle era FM is so good! Worth listening to through headphones.
Brilliant album. And song. Another "Had to Be There" moment via RP. Thank you!
such a great album and song / listen closely u can hear Christine mcvee or Christine perfect as she was known then playing keyboards / thanks bill
Loved this album!  Played it till wore out the grooves.

I'm still amazed that FM wrote this song about you. You certainly did have sparkling eyes that could instantly mesmerize. And here I bought the school yearbook solely to have a small picture of you, but you wore mirrored sunglasses for the photo! What was up with that?

And boy, oh boy, you had legs to kill; thanks for wearing that party dress when I took you out.
Danny Kirwin was brilliant

I thought it sounded like Paul McCartney myself... Wings edition.
Ah, Kiln House.  Love it the most.  All of it.  Best Fleetwood ever.

miss you so much, Cynaera...

I have lots of vinyl in storage (soon to be back at home).  Have this album.  Great to listen to this song again.   It has been a while!  Thanks for playing it.  Great memories!


Everybody in my hotel room loves this song, and this whole extraordinary album...

Sweet one from the Mac.  (9)
My fave Fleetwood Mac period is w/Peter Green and Danny Kirwan, but dang, this Danny Kirwan one without Peter is great, too!

Almost. No Peter Green on this album.

Per AMG this is post Peter Green, pre Buckinghman and Nicks, with Danny Kirwan on the vocals.

Interesting tune.
I've never heard this before and never would've guessed it was Fleetwood Mac.
Like it though.

Nice!

Thanks and I get the subtle hint. 
I don't know much Fleetwood Mac other than what's on the GH package, so I've never heard this song before. And it's not just that it's great, it's that it's 40 years old and sounds like it could have been released a week ago. How many bands on the Garden State soundtrack want to sound just like this?

Yes, back in the day, they were great!!! Now, it's all about take the money and run! I refer to them today as "Fleece the Pack!"

Hi Judy, wherever you are.
Love the way it builds to the chorus, then KICKS it!

Thanks RP. Nowhere else can we hear Kiln House except on our own turntables.

This song is contender for my favorite song on this fantastic album...  competition is fierce on this album...


Definitely a "great song from a great album."  In fact, I think it's an underrated album and one of FMAc's best.


This is a great song from a great album...


This really takes me back.  Sophmore year in college.  I really loved the early Fleetwood Mac.

A lot of really good music in the pre-famous Mac!

Oz is Washington and the Wizard is FDR. I thought the lion was the military?
An interesting sidenote: the plot of The Wizard of Oz has often been used, rightly or wrongly, as a Parable on Populism in the Gilded Age, to explain the political situation at the time of its writing, including the 1896 Presidential election, and the turn-of-the-century Populist movement. Here are a few of the allegorical connections, most of which were originally recognized by Henry M. Littlefield, and published in the American Quarterly in 1967: * the Scarecrow - the wise, but naive western farmers * the Tin Woodman - the dehumanized, Eastern factory workers * the Wicked Witch of the East - the Eastern industrialists and bankers who controlled the people (the Munchkins) * the Good Witch of the North - New England, a stronghold of Populists ( and gutboy!} * the Good Witch of the South - the South, another Populist area * the Wizard - President Grover Cleveland, or Republican Presidential candidate William McKinley * the Cowardly Lion - Democratic-Populist Presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan * Dorothy - a young Mary Lease; or the good-natured American people * Dorothy's silver shoes - represents the 'silver standard' (acc. to the Populists, "the free and unlimited coinage of silver") (gutboy note- according to Antiques Roadshow, the silver slippers were changed to ruby for the movie because they wanted to take full advantage of the color film, silver looked gray) * Toto - the 'teetotaling' Prohibitionists (or Temperance Party), an important part of the 'silverite' coalition * the Yellow Brick road - the 'gold standard' - paved with gold, but leads nowhere * the land of Oz - oz. is the standard abbreviation for ounce, in accordance with the other symbolism * Emerald City - Washington, D.C., with a greenish color associated with greenbacks * the Poppy field - the threat of anti-imperialism Source: www.filmsite.org/wiza.html

I usually hate Fleetwood Mac. I heard this and thought, lost Beatles session? Pleasant surprise. I gave it an 8.

If you want some more vintage "Mac" go find "Bare Trees" or "Mystery to Me", to of my favorites and two I wish Bill would play some of as I never hear any cuts of them on RP.

Kiln House is an album by British blues rock band Fleetwood Mac, released in 1970 (see 1970 in music). This is the first of the post-Peter Green Fleetwood Mac albums, and their last album to feature Jeremy Spencer. Christine McVie was present at the recording sessions and contributed backing vocals and cover art, although she was not a full member of the band until shortly after the album's completion. Spencer's retro 50s homages and parodies dominate the album, but Danny Kirwan's more sincere songs are almost equally prominent. "Buddy's Song" is credited to Buddy Holly's mother, but is actually the song "Peggy Sue Got Married" with new lyrics listing a great many Buddy Holly song titles. From the F.M. wiki An early version of Kirwan's instrumental "Earl Gray", entitled "Farewell", was later released on the compilation "The Vaudeville Years".
Good stuff.I recently listened to this album after a gap of over 30 years and was quite amazed at how much I enjoyed it. BTW this isn't "early" Mac,this was the first album after the "early" Mac disintegrated. Damn,there's now a crap version of Oh Well playing now.
