Description

Unsurprisingly, given the perfunctory nature of the sessions, there are few whole songs from the cutting room floor on this reissue: Nicks’ “If You Were My Love” is solid, and a more aggressive version of “Empire State” shows what might have transpired had Buckingham been allowed to make Tusk II. Some of Buckingham’s perception-shaking DNA remained intact: “Empire State” is the opposite of “Oh Diane,” a daring pop song indicating that Tusk was the result of calculated genius, not just megalomania and madness. Bel vinile di un gruppo molto famoso negli anni 70'/80' ,buona musica per chi piace il genere pop-rock .

The latter version was (initially) used in the video, and was not available on CD until the release of 1992's retrospective box set 25 Years – The Chain.

In 2009, another DVD incarnation of the Mirage concert was released under the title Fleetwood Mac – In Performance by the Showline label on a region-free disc. Apart from a very very small scuff on one corner of the cover,this album looked and played as if it was brand new,it was in mint condition. Every hour filled with an emptiness I can’t hide,” Christine McVie sings on “Wish You Were Here,” referencing her split from the Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson.

Having accepted that the band weren’t interested in “shaking people’s preconceptions of pop,” as he sniffed to any reporter who would listen, Buckingham resolved that Fleetwood Mac’s next album should be a proper group effort. It spent a total of 18 weeks in the US top ten and has been certified double platinum for shipments in excess of two million copies in the US.noted the absence of a re-release of the "Mirage Live" 1982 concert video release, which to date has not been released on DVD in the United States and United Kingdom. Buckingham in particular is hell-bent on leaping back several decades to escape all this mess: “Standing in the shadows, the man I used to be/I want to go back,” he growls on the peppy “Can’t Go Back. This album is about to be re released but I bet it will be digital and will not sound as great as the 1982 one that I purchased and am more than happy with,many thanks for a brilliant service.

Some of these songs include "Goodbye Angel" and "Teen Beat", which were both released on 25 Years: The Chain, and "Smile at You", later released on Say You Will. Regarding the album itself in my opinion "Mirage" is fairly underrated and "Tango in the night" way overrated. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Condé Nast. Newly remastered, the deluxe adds a second disc with 19 tracks dedicated entirely to outtakes and rarities, including early versions of several album tracks; outtakes for songs that didn’t make it to the album; an unreleased cover of the Fats Domino classic Blue Monday and the rare, extended mix for second single Gypsy that was used in the music video.

Fleetwood Mac’s internecine relationships and betrayals outdid any soap opera, though by 1982, they had plotted almost every conceivable love triangle and finally found partners outside the group. Three of these tracks, "Second Hand News," "Brown Eyes," and "Hold Me" would later be officially released on the expanded 1980 Fleetwood Mac Live album in 2021. There’s a grace to her lyrics that’s absent on Tusk, conceding to a partner who just can’t work it out: “I can’t define love like it should be,” she sighs.

In a 1981 interview with BAM magazine, Nicks reported that her original three submissions for Mirage were "That's Alright" (with the working title "It's Alright"), "If You Were My Love", and "Smile at You", although she said that Buckingham had encouraged her to replace the latter song with a different composition. Buckingham came into the studio with " Can't Go Back and "Eyes of the World", while his other three songs on the album were written shortly after his arrival in France. Instead, even as McVie is singing about Wilson, it plays as a plea for understanding and reconciliation between the estranged five-piece: “I don’t want no damage/But how am I going to manage with you?
