Album:

N°36 album-hit in Groot-Brittannië voor Fleetwood Mac (Words and Music by P. A. Green) (Fleetwood Mac Production) ("Oh well" Recording Engineer: Martin Birch) als Oh Well (LP: Fleetwood Mac Greatest Hits) (℗ 1971) in 1972 [CBS S 69011]

In eerste instantie zou deze plaat helemaal niet in Nederland worden uitgebracht. Naar verluidt, althans volgens Lex Harding, zat Peter Green naar Radio Veronica te luisteren en hoorde de smeekbede om de plaat in Nederland uit te brengen, waarna hij belde naar Radio Veronica met "Als jullie er zo om zitten zeuren, dan laat ik 'm wel uitkomen" en zo werd alsnog geregeld dat de plaat in Nederland uitkwam.

Met ingang van 1 november 1969 kiest Radio Veronica iedere week een Alarmschijf. Oh Well (Part One) van Fleetwood Mac is de eerste Alarmschijf die iedere dag ten minste elke twee uur wordt gedraaid door de diskjockeys van de zeezender. Oh Well (Part One) van Fleetwood Mac komt een week later de Top 40 binnen. De plaat staat vanaf 22 november 1969 vier weken lang op de eerste plaats.

Songtekst

I can't help about the shape I'm in
I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh well

Now, when I talked to God I knew he'd understand
He said, Stick by my side and I'll be your guiding hand
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh well
