Biography

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac ... Read more in Amazon's Fleetwood Mac Store

Fleetwood Mac's 1997 reunion could have been the kind of event that works on video-- great concert, after all--but ends up not paying off in repeated listenings in album form. But The Dance, while concentrating on the group's 1970s and 1980s triumphs, finds the Mac energy running high and impassioned. New songs like "Temporary One" and "Bleed to Love Her" are fine additions to the canon, while "Everywhere" and "Say You Love Me" both breeze along the way you remember them and manage a reinvention in the live setting. The dark side of the vision is accounted for with Lindsey Buckingham's crazed solo "Big Love", but best of all is "Silver Springs", wherein Stevie Nicks tears the roof off the sucker and sets fire to the rubble. --Rickey Wright

'The Dance' is, quite simply, the 'Rumours' incarnation of Fleetwood Mac at its best. After years of drink, drugs and acrimonious relations, the classic lineup of the group reunited in spectacular fashion for this recorded concert and subsequent US tour. What is more, they sound fantastic. The original concert's setlist is reduced for the purposes of this album, but still includes a myriad of hits and old favourites, including reworkings of some: Buckingham's acoustic solo 'Big Love' and Christine McVie's new twist on 'Say You Love Me' are particular highlights. There are four 'new' songs, each of which has its merits. There is also a thundering, highly emotive version of the 1976 Rumours B-Side 'Silver Springs' which proves that Stevie Nicks still has the magic and stage presence she first showed twenty years before. John McVie and Mick Fleetwood show that they are the most consistent and impressive rhythm section in popular music, adding much to the polished two hour affair. Overall, this album is a fine showcase for a band who have earned their place in the annals of rock history.

After ten years in the wilderness (and with further line-up changes), the classic seventies line-up struck back with style.
"The Dance" is an edited version of an MTV live special, and everybody is back on form. As a selective greatest hits collection it works surprisingly well.
Christine McVie is as consistent as ever. She breezes through classics like "You Make Loving Fun", "Everywhere" and "Don't Stop". Lindsey Buckingham performs a show-stopping acoustic version of "Big Love", and a striking "I'm So Afraid". His vocal range is a little more limited these days, but his guitar chops are as keen as ever.
The best news of all is that Stevie Nicks has rarely sounded as good as she does here. The years have added a fruity depth to her voice which revitalises tried and trusted nuggets like "Dreams" and "Rhiannon". Nicks is also responsible for the real highlight of this collection - rarely heard "Rumours"-era B-side, "Silver Springs", a stirring and anthemic tour-de-force which sounds better than the original.
Also included are four new songs, none of them particularly earth-shattering, but all competent.
Recommended as a interesting companion piece to the 1988 "Greatest Hits" set.

In 1997, that most excellent of rock bands, Fleetwood Mac got together for a 30th anniversary reunion. This is the product of that reunion. This excellent live concert recording is an excellent purchase - the sound quality is great, and there are many wonderful renditions of their older songs which became favorites, such as Silver Springs. And there are some new ones, including Bleed to Love Her.
This is a great CD, and a great addition to my musical library. I think that my favorite songs on this album are Bleed to Love Her, Say You Love Me and Silver Springs. I love this album and highly recommend it to all fans of great music!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a recording of the famous (to FM fans) 1997 live-reunion concert at Burbank, CA by the band's greatest-ever incarnation: the `Rumours' era line-up of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and the incomparable Lindsay Buckingham, who also co-produced the album. You can also get the whole concert on DVD, and a TV documentary was made about the band to celebrate the occasion.

Highlights include most of the band's best-loved numbers from the late 1970s, including `The Chain', `Dreams', `Everywhere', `Say you love me', `Go your own way' and `Tusk' complete with brass-dominant orchestra. There's also a handful of lesser-known classics like `Silver Springs' and new numbers such as `Bleed to love her'.

After years apart and with a tangled history of inter-personal turmoil, the reformed FM sounds just great: tight, melodious and full of soul, they rock the venue to its foundations to an ecstatically appreciative crowd. If you know the original albums from the 1970s - `Fleetwood Mac', `Rumours' (Brit-English spelling please!), `Tusk' and the equally good but later `Tango in the Night' - you might be surprised at how good these songs sound from the more mature band. A joy in playing and a confidence of delivery radiates from years of history together.

Fans of FM will know that Christine McVie finally quit the band, `retired' from touring and moved back to a quiet life in England in 1998, shortly after `The Dance' was recorded. Though the other four continued to play together, Christine's departure marked the end of an era for one of the greatest-ever melodious pop-rock bands, with 30+ years of accumulated success and tens of millions of albums sold. Alas, we may never see their like again.

The concert was amazing. This CD is a selection of the songs played there, and they show the band in perfect mood. Everything is a success, from the new songs (Bleed to love her especially, later released on Say you will) to reworkings of old hits (Buckingham's thrilling Big love). And some moments are simply magic (Landslide, Silver springs). The only fault here is the absence of Songbird, that closed the concert, and is one of the most moving performances I've ever seen. Anyway, The Dance is a great album, and one of the best live albums ever, like Who's next or It's too late to stop now.
