Fleetwood Mac

In 1975, Fleetwood Mac first showed their classic lineup on their second self-titled album. Not only did Fleetwood Mac set up the musical chemistry for the band for decades to come, this helped solidify the band as a pop juggernaut along with singles like “Rhiannon” as well as “Say You Love Me”. Ahead of the January 19th 2018’s launch of the album’s expansive reissue, listen to an early version associated of Stevie Nicks’ classic “Landslide,” which would become among their signature songs.

 


 

The actual “Landslide” outtake sounds remarkably similar to the final version. Nicks’ voice has a little more rawness and edge, and also where the album cuts Lindsey Buckingham’s multi-tracked traditional acoustic guitars and a brief electrical solo, this version consists of just a single acoustic-guitar and some light percussion.

 

This particular reissue follows a recent number of remastered and re-released Fleetwood Mac albums. Like other bands, Fleetwood Mac will include formerly unreleased studio recordings. The reissue comes out in multiple formats, together with a deluxe version that includes 3 CDs, a DVD along with a vinyl LP.

 

In late January, artists such as Lorde, Harry Styles and Haim will perform at the Fleetwood Mac tribute show at Radio City Music Hall. The concert is part of the MusiCares benefit that will happen days before the Grammy Awards. The band’s classic lineup will also perform at the live concert.
