Saturday 11/28/2020 3pm ET: Feature LP: Fleetwood Mac – Live (1980)

Live is a double live album released by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac on 8 December 1980. It was the first live album from the then-current line-up of the band, and the next would be The Dance from 1997. The album was certified gold (500,000 copies sold) by the RIAA in November 1981.

Live consists of recordings taken primarily from the 1979-1980 Tusk Tour, together with a few from the earlier Rumours Tour of 1977. According to the liner notes, two songs were recorded at a Paris soundcheck and three at a performance at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium “for an audience of friends and road crew.”

Of particular note are three new songs – Christine McVie’s “One More Night”, Stevie Nicks’ “Fireflies”, and a well-harmonized backstage rendition of The Beach Boys’ “The Farmer’s Daughter”. The latter two were released as singles; “Fireflies” reached the top 60 in the US, while “The Farmer’s Daughter” reached the top 10 in Austria. “Fireflies” was Nicks’ rumination on the tumultuous recording of the “Tusk” album and her observance that the band stayed intact nevertheless. Her lyrics referred to band members as the “five fireflies.” “The Farmer’s Daughter” appears to have actually been recorded at The Village Recorders studio where Tusk was recorded despite the liner notes – it appears in the Tusk re-release of 2004 nearly identical sans crowd noise. “Don’t Let Me Down Again” is a song from the Buckingham Nicks album and was actually recorded earlier than the rest of the tracks – the recording was made in 1975 in Passaic. The band covered “Farmer’s Daughter” at the request of Buckingham, who deemed the Brian Wilson tune obscure enough to include on the album.

Also notable are two Lindsey Buckingham guitar showcases. The first, “I’m So Afraid”, was popular as a concert finale during this period. The second was Buckingham’s take on former Mac guitarist Peter Green’s signature number, “Oh Well” (originally a 1969 single release).

Thursday 11/26/2020 1:15am ET: Feature LP: Fleetwood Mac – Rumours with Outtakes (1977)

Rumours is the eleventh studio album by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac, released on 4 February 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. Largely recorded in California in 1976, it was produced by the band with Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut. The band wanted to expand on the commercial success of their eponymous 1975 album, but struggled with relationship breakups before recording started. The Rumours studio sessions were marked by hedonism and strife among band members that shaped the album’s lyrics.

Recorded with the intention of making “a pop album”, the album’s music featured a pop rock and soft rock sound characterized by accented rhythms and electric keyboards such as the Fender Rhodes or Hammond B3 organ. The members partied and used cocaine for much of the recording sessions, and its completion was delayed by its mixing process, but was finished by the end of 1976. Following the album’s release, Fleetwood Mac undertook worldwide promotional tours. Rumours became the band’s first number one album on the UK Albums Chart and also topped the US Billboard 200. The songs “Go Your Own Way”, “Dreams”, “Don’t Stop”, and “You Make Loving Fun” were released as singles, all of which reached the US top 10.

Rumours was an instant commercial success, selling over 10 million copies worldwide within just a month of its release. It garnered widespread acclaim from critics, with praise centred on its production quality and harmonies, which frequently relied on the interplay among three vocalists and has inspired the work of musical acts in different genres. It won Album of the Year at the 1978 Grammy Awards. It has sold over 45 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. Domestically, it has received Diamond certifications in several countries, including the UK, Canada, and Australia, and has been certified 20× platinum in the US.

Often considered Fleetwood Mac’s best release, the album has featured in several publications’ lists of the best albums of the 1970s and of all time. In 2004, Rumours was remastered and reissued with the addition of “Silver Springs”, which had been excluded from the original due to tension within the band, and a bonus CD of outtakes from the recording sessions. In 2003, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry, being deemed “culturally, historically, or artistically significant” by the Library of Congress. In 2020, Rumours was rated the seventh greatest album of all time in Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”.

Friday 10/2/2020 1pm ET: Feature Artist – Christine McVie


Christine Anne Perfect (born 12 July 1943), known professionally as Christine McVie following her marriage to John McVie, is an English singer, songwriter and keyboardist, best known as one of the three lead vocalists and the keyboardist of Fleetwood Mac. She joined the band in 1970. She has also released three solo albums. McVie is known for her contralto vocals and her direct but poignant lyrics, which concentrated on love and relationships. AllMusic describes her as an “Unabashedly easy-on-the-ears singer/songwriter, and the prime mover behind some of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits.” Eight of her songs appeared on Fleetwood Mac’s 1988 Greatest Hits album.

In 1998 McVie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. The same year, after almost 30 years with the band, she opted to leave and lived in semi-retirement for nearly 15 years. McVie released one solo album in 2004. In September 2013, McVie appeared on stage with Fleetwood Mac at London’s O2 Arena. She rejoined the band in October 2014, ready for Fleetwood Mac’s On with the Show tour.

In 2014 she received the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.
