Wahoo! New Fleetwood Mac Remasters!

finally, their best three albums in remastered sound!

(this part from RollingStone)

FLEETWOOD MAC LOOK BACK

FLEETWOOD MAC's landmark late-Seventies albums -- "Fleetwood Mac,"
"Rumours" and "Tusk" -- will be reissued by Rhino on March 23rd and
padded with demos and outtakes. "Rumours," which has sold more than
19 million copies, is almost as famous for its creators' feuding as
its hits. "All of those problems, all of those drugs and all of the
fun and all of the craziness, made for writing all those songs,"
STEVIE NICKS said. "If we'd been a big healthy group of guys and
gals, none of those great songs would've been written."

Forget remastered sound. Get the Rumours DVD-Audio. That's awesome.

Wow. I'd like to hear the unreleased material. As far as sound goes I think the first go-round was well done. I'm not dissatisfied at all with the mastering. Never cared that Sara was the short version either.

agree with you there. Rumours has to be one of the most perfectly engineered albums ever. but, i'm still curious to hear what they can do with a remastering job, and those bonus tracks seem pretty enticing!

More details from rollingstone.com:


Fleetwood Mac Dust Off Demos

Rhino Records will reissue Fleetwood Mac's landmark late Seventies albums Fleetwood Mac, Rumours and Tusk on March 23rd.
The expanded version of Fleetwood Mac, originally released in 1975 and the first to feature Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, will include a previously unreleased jam, along with four alternate takes of album cuts. Both Rumours (1977) and Tusk (1979) will come with a full disc of unreleased demos and outtakes.

The roughs and outtakes on the discs offer a behind-the-scenes peak at the group's sometimes fractured songwriting process, which gave "The Chain" its name.

"It started out as one song in Sausalito," Buckingham told Rolling Stone. "We decided it needed a bridge, so we cut a bridge and edited it into the rest of the song. We didn't get a vocal and left it for a long time in a bunch of pieces. It almost went off the album. Then we listened back and decided we liked the bridge, but didn't like the rest of the song. So I wrote verses for that bridge, which was originally not in the songs and edited those in. We saved the ending. The ending was the only thing left from the original track. We ended up calling it 'The Chain' because it was a bunch of pieces."
