This 1980 live album from Fleetwood Mac comprises some performances recorded five years before and others from the 1979 'Tusk' tour. It is, perhaps, a little eclectic, and will strike more of a chord with the more dedicated fans of the band. Whilst the track listing includes several renowned Mac songs - for instance a powerful rendition of Stevie Nicks' Rhiannon, and energetic versions of Monday Morning and Say You Love Me - there are some 'new' compositions which range from decent to forgettable. Also, at times it would seem that the choice of recordings was rather odd - on Landslide, Nicks is barely audible, and Christine McVie suffers a similar fate on what starts out as a promising rendition of Over My Head.
Nevertheless, as opposed to 1997's 'The Dance' which was a very polished affair, the listener gets the feeling that this album has really captured the Rumours-lineup at its live, creative, frustrated best. Lindsey Buckingham dazzles as usual with his guitar work, and Nicks and McVie both contribute beautiful vocals on the majority of tracks. All in all, compared to their peers and today's bands, this is a marvellous glimpse into an act which can really entertain and thrives in a live atmosphere.
