Christine McVie (Christine Anne Perfect) is an English rock singer, keyboardist, and songwriter. Her primary fame came as a member of the British/American rock band Fleetwood Mac though she has also released three solo albums. McVie has a contralto vocal range. In 2006, Paste Magazine named McVie the 83rd greatest living songwriter. In 1968, a friend of Christine told her that her Sounds Of Blue's ex-band mates Andy Silvester and Stan Webb were forming a blues band and were looking for a pianist, so she wrote to them asking to join them. A few days later they replied, inviting her to play keyboards/piano and sing background vocals in their band Chicken Shack. Christine stayed with Chicken Shack for two albums; it was in that combo that her genuine feel for the blues became evident—not only in her Sonny Thompson-style piano playing, but in her soft, low alto which rendered the songs and standards she did sing authentic. In fact, Chicken Shack scored the #14 British hit "I'd Rather Go Blind" with Christine on lead vocals. She was given a Melody Maker award for female vocalist for both 1969 and 1970 respectively, and she was lauded for having one of the "top 10 pairs of legs in all of Britain". Christine left Chicken Shack in 1969 after meeting Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie. Christine Perfect is the debut solo album of Christine McVie. The album was released just after Perfect had left Chicken Shack, but before she joined Fleetwood Mac. It contained the Etta James song, "I'd Rather Go Blind", which had earlier been a hit single for Chicken Shack. Originally released in 1970, the album was re-released in 1976 as The Legendary Christine Perfect Album.
