Christine Perfect is the eponymous debut solo album of former Chicken Shack keyboardist/singer Christine Perfect (later known as Christine McVie). [2] 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.

Released in 1970, the album was originally meant to be titled "I'm On My Way" as evidenced on copies of the single "I'm Too Far Gone (To Turn Around)".[3] It was re-released in 1976 as The Legendary Christine Perfect Album.[4]
