Fleetwood Mac – Live (1980) – 2Lp

by Record Facts

Fleetwood Mac are a British-American band formed in 1967, in London. The band achieved more modest success between 1971 and 1974, when the line-up included Bob Welch, during the 1990s in between the departure and return of Nicks and Buckingham, and during the 2000s when Christine McVie was absent.













Artist:  Fleetwood Mac
Title:  Live
Year:  1980
Format:  2LP
Label:  Warner Bros. Records
Catalog#  WB 66097

Live is a double live album released by Fleetwood Mac in 1980. It was the first live album from the then-current line-up of the band.
This 1980, 2 album live set captures Fleetwood Mac at the height of its platinum popularity, performing such durable faves as “Don’t Stop,” “Dreams,” “Say You Love Me,” “Rhiannon,” “Go Your Own Way,” “Over My Head,” “Monday Morning,” and “Sara.” The band’s energetic performances put a fresh spin on the familiar material. 
Of particular note are three new songs — Christine McVie’s “One More Night”, Stevie Nicks’ “Fireflies”, and a well-harmonized backstage rendition of The Beach Boys‘ “The Farmer’s Daughter”. The latter two were released as singles, but only “Fireflies” charted. “Don’t Let Me Down Again” is a song from the Buckingham Nicks album. Also notable are two Lindsey Buckingham guitar showcases. The first, “I’m So Afraid”, was popular as a concert finale during this period. The second was Buckingham’s take on former Mac guitarist Peter Green’s signature number, “Oh Well” (originally a 1969 single release).
