|It seemed only a matter of time before the members of Fleetwood Mac's most successful lineup--Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, and John McVie--found their way back to each other. The first fruit of their reunion is this live album, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of "Rumours" and the 30th anniversary of the band with live remakes of such "Rumours" classics as "Dreams," "Go Your Own Way," and "You Make Loving Fun," plus other Fleetwood Mac staples like "Rhiannon" and "Landslide." The album also contains three new songs and a beautiful version of "Silver Springs," initially a B-side and now the emphasis track. Unlike most reunions, this one yields satisfying results and suggests a new musical life for one of the most enduring acts of all time. (Billboard Magazine, 8/30/97)|

Reviewer: Anonymous, January 24, 2006 One of the greatest albums of all time. I can play it over and over and never get sick of it. I also agree with some other reviewers that Lindsey Buckingham's guitar playing has definitely been under-rated. He is up there with the best in the world.
wow wow wow and wow with a side order of wow.
Reviewer: Mike Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org), house d.j November 04, 2005 i had the dream of a lifetime come true watching tearfull amongst 15000 fortunate people a super amazing unbelievable and so on and on and on band. WOW what an evening in Birmingham two years ago I will remember for life. Muusic with everything and lots more I have the dance on video and its as touching now as it ever was. There is nothing quite like Fleetwood Mac and there could never be. Thanks to Lyndsey a magician and Stevie your perfect voice of an angel. If i could only meet them to say thanks. Im sure all will agree that talent and passion cries out in abundance from a band I thought I was to young to see. At the risk of upsetting who needs Mr Green? Mike Clarke 32. Kent England.
Talent & Wisdom
Reviewer: Rod (email@example.com), October 30, 2005 Here's the thing folks -- talent is one thing, but experience and wisdom need to go into the pot to produce this kind of music. Those of you who haven't kept up or never knew much about Fleetwood Mac should know that there were some serious personality differences and love triangles in store for this unbelievably popular group. They broke up many years ago under sad circumstances -- only to be reborn, to all of our benefit, with a "new" and wonderfully mature creativitity and voice. They did what few if any groups have ever done in the music world -- they came back more sophisticated, better educated, with finely-tuned talent and a depth of feeling in their voices and their instruments that can only be likened to "classical" music. And one last thing, and probably the most important-- they didn't "change" their music... they IMPROVED it! If I could meet each one of them intimately, I would give each one of them a big hug and a long kiss on their cheeks for giving all of us who care such a wonderful musical and emotional experience.
