By stripping away production gloss, some of them—including, for example, many of the Rumours tracks— shine a light on a composition’s underlying strength. Given that most people probably don't need an "alternative" Rumours LP as they probably still have the original (which, as we all know, sold by the truckload), I think that sales of the ALT recordings would likely be limited to hardcore collectors (like myself)! For those who have listened to the original albums many times, it is a refreshing listening experience to hear these alternative versions. Some of his listeners probably wouldn’t have understood him if he had because they didn’t speak English.

This release on CD could have included more alternate outtakes from the Super Deluxe editions of Tusk and Rumours, making it a better value than the LPs and more comprehensive for those who missed out on the earlier editions or just prefer to listen to alternate takes alone. By the way vinyl doesn’t just warp unless exposed to undue heat, 180 g and 200 g vinyl will warp just about as readily as 140 g.

In this behind-the-scenes look at the making of Fleetwood Mac’s epic, platinum-selling double album, Tusk, producers and engineers Ken Caillat and Hernan Rojas tell their stories of spending a year with the band in their new million-dollar studio trying to follow up Rumours, the biggest rock album of the time.

With Christine recently passing it’s been nice to listen to this set and appreciate all she gave to the music of Fleetwood Mac. A limited-edition, clamshell-boxed anthology, it contains six CDs (or eight vinyl LPs) and includes versions of six of the group’s biggest albums that preserve their original cover art but offer different recordings of each of their tracks. Mirage is without doubt a superb album, capturing and showing off everything that is great about Fleetwood Mac in their earlier years. One example of that: The Alternate Collection’s “Suma’s Walk,” an amiable but unremarkable instrumental riff that with a new name, beefed-up instrumentation, and terrific vocals, became the Mirage ear candy known as “Can’t Go Back.

With my copy, though I encountered a sharp screech on more than 2 occasions in the first track alone. So, what do we get for the 50 th-anniversary edition of Catch Bull at Four, which happens to have been Stevens’s only No. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. The sound quality on these recordings is top notch, its so crystal clear and life like that you will have to be careful as not to deafen yourself because you will be constantly turning the volume up.

The alternative version here deviates from the other versions and includes a lot of songs not originally included on the initial album. I was not that interested in much of the later Fleetwood Mac output but have recently revisited their albums and I have to say this album has much more to it than I previously thought, hence the vinyl purchase.Même chose pour le Live de 1980 dont les titres bonus sont rigoureusement les mêmes que sur le coffret anniversaire sorti en 2021…Voilà donc un coffret qui n’apporte pas grand-chose au fan collectionneur quand même puisqu’il/elle possède déjà ces coffrets anniversaires. The contents have been previously issued on vinyl for annual Record Day events and have also appeared on deluxe editions of the original albums. At least there’s a large catalog of recorded material to remind us of just how potent a force this band could be. It includes not only a long list of studio and live albums, but a ton of alternate takes, versions, and mixes, as well as demos and rehearsal recordings.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Does Fleetwood Mac’s music from 1975 - 1987 need a review…no…if you are viewing this page and reading the reviews you know all about classic Mac.Originally released in 1975, Fleetwood Mac's self-titled release marked the addition of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks into the band's line-up. Le seul avantage est de les trouver tous réunis ensemble et pouvoir réentendre la magnifique Christine McVie nous chanter une de ses plus belles chansons, Songbird (sur Rumours). Clam shell outer box containing 6 CD's inside individual cardboard sleeves with inner cellophane protective sleeves. It offers no liner notes and fewer alternate versions, but it embraces the lion’s share of the most interesting such versions and costs far less than you’d spend for all the deluxe editions.
