Then Play On is the third studio album by blues-rock band Fleetwood Mac, first released in September 1969. It was the first of their original albums to feature Danny Kirwan and the last with Peter Green. Jeremy Spencer did not feature on the album apart from “a couple of piano things” (according to Mick Fleetwood in Q magazine in 1990). The record, appearing after the group’s sudden success in the pop charts, offered a broader stylistic range than the classic blues of the group’s first two albums. The title is taken from Duke Orsino’s opening line, “If music be the food of love, then play on,” from William Shakespeare’s comedy play Twelfth night.

The Fleetwood Mac of 1970, before Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the group, was primarily a British blues band. Fleetwood Mac continues today as one of the most enduring and successful rock bands in history.

“Then Play On is a reminder of how pervasive and powerful Green’s influence was on Mac’s originality and individual stance beyond his involvement. Still highly recommended and a must-buy after all these years, it remains their magnum opus.” -Michael G. Nastos,
