Fleetwood Mac- Tusk pt 1- Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham

It’s getting to look a lot (more) like Christmas… Fleetwood Mac is releasing a five disc  edition of  Tusk this week, replete with enough alternate takes to actually comprise an alternate version of the original two-record set! And unreleased live concert recordings from that 1980 tour are included, as well. 

Imagine an entire season of the tv “reality series” show Survivor if it had been filmed in a locked down recording studio instead of a remote island, and with guitars instead of spears, and you have the story of Fleetwood Mac‘s 1979 double opus TuskLindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks  bare their souls dealing with the phenomenon of supertardom in a post-Rumours world, all the while lifting the curtain on the songs “Think About Me”,”Storms”, “The Ledge”,”That’s All for Everyone”,  Stevie’s magnum opus “Sara”, and the filial fantasy “Sisters of the Moon”. –Redbeard
