Music Box: Fleetwood Mac GYPSY

It remains my favorite music video of all time. Fleetwood Mac’s Gypsy is still, even after hundreds of times viewing it over the years, fresh and new every time I watch it. Such is the power with a work of art. At the time of its release in 1982, Fleetwood Mac was enjoying its first … Continue reading Music Box: Fleetwood Mac GYPSY

Music Box: In 1997, Fleetwood Mac Danced Again

***** It would have been easy, even in 1997, to discount Fleetwood Mac’s Phoenix-from-the-flame resurrection. Yes, it had been, at that point, almost 7 years since their last quasi-hit album, the Top 20 Buckingham-less BEHIND THE MASK, and a full decade since their last Top 10 (1987s TANGO IN THE NIGHT).  Their last #1, MIRAGE, … Continue reading Music Box: In 1997, Fleetwood Mac Danced Again

Released in 1982, after a short hiatus following the successful TUSK tour, Fleetwood Mac's MIRAGE brought them back to the #1 spot on Billboard's Top 200 chart, something that eluded them since 1977s mega successful RUMOURS LP, which remains one of the Top 5 selling albums in history. The first single was the Christine McVie/Robbie … Continue reading Music Box: Stevie Nicks – Lady In Red
