My first crush was Stevie when I saw this on "The Midnight Special".  Search for it, it is really fun version of this song.

Bill, why play commercial crap like this?

Oh wow! So does this mean that as long as I keep streaming now, I'll be one song ahead of the website?

 
I actually feel bad for you, so much energy into such negative thinking, about a song.   Hope you hear something you like soon.

So, the rest of the members of FM were victims of Nicks and Buckingham?!  I don't buy it. Band members change, bands change, instruments, styles and PEOPLE change.

We get it, you don't like it so get over it and move on.
 
Agreed.
The Oh So Tiresome "I knew them before they were popular" routine.
Whatever, dude. I can't think of another band in history that changed personnel as frequently as Fleetwood Mac.
So every single lineup was great until Buckingham/Nicks came along and "destroyed the band? Oh, Puh-leez.

My favourite band of all time is Fleetwood Mac, but this ain't it. If Peter Green, Danny Kirwan or Jeremy Spencer aren't in the mix, it's not the real Mac.

No one made music like Fleetwood Mac. They didn't fit in a particular genre of rock. They imitated no one.
But most unusual, no one imitated them. I can't think of anyone else to put in the same category.

Turned up the volume hearing the first 3 chords. I then realised I had to give this at least an 8.

Yes, we did, at least in my young engineering universe.  That was THE snare you wanted for rock.  It *was* new, at least to those who cared about such things and gave rise to the excess (of which I am still subject to) of taking forever to get a drum sound. Miking individual drums was not new, nor were good snare sounds, but Keith Olsen's was just epic in some way; we figured out that the midrange might have been pulled out at a specific frequency, or that was one theory.  Of course, that was not the whole story; a drum sound is complex and relies on drummers, drum heads, tuning, drum sets, mics, and on and on.  I've never analyzed why we wanted it, just took it as gospel, and it was the fad of the 70s (and long since), but you have me thinking now why it gave such pleasure to us and was the gold standard in those years.  If you couldn't approximate that sound, you felt as if your career was doomed.  I think the jazz crowd had a much easier and less naval-gazing time of it!  I guess a lot of it was following Alan Parsons' careful isolations, removing the room from the equation, and then adding an 'environment' back in.  Or something like that...but great topic!

Rock music has rarely been a good place to look for role models.

I remember rocking out to Fleetwood in my parents basement while lifting weights using Arnold's Guide to Bodybuilding. Thinking about it also reminds me of the Commodore 64 in the corner and online discussion bulletin boards (often dominated by Trekies). Sounds like an odd convergence, but totally ordinary in the mid-to-late 80s. And at the center of my musical world at the time (calling me out of the self-absorbing doldrums of teenage angst) was Stevie.

I may have said this before about a song or two, but there are a small number of songs (perhaps not THAT small, but small in relation to the total size of the playlist on RP) that, while they perhaps ARE way overplayed commercially in the world 'out there', are still wonderful, excellent tunes by great artists of one stripe or another. This (and many, many songs by Fleetwood Mac), to me, fall into this category. Additionally, I think that occasionally playing a song like this on RP actually serves to enhance a tune that might have been otherwise considered dull or ordinary, overplayed and milquetoast if heard on the freeway or while taking the kids to school on FM-schlock radio. If a song like Rhiannon had never made it big commercially, most of the 'tuned in' world would consider it an exceptional, wonderful song, the more special also for not being so over commercialized and exposed. The music is still great, and RP dusts it's music off like a little gem to show off, even the Hope Diamonds that everyone has seen. Just a thought.

 

Well said. I totally agree. most of this album falls into the "overplayed but still exceptional" genre.
