I'm very curious as to what might have delayed the 'official' announcement around the upcoming releases, as well as the logic behind a September release date. Don't Dream It's Over was released in Oct. 86' and aside from Now We're Getting Somewhere having been released in Sept. 86', I don't really see the connection between the dates. I'm still hopeful that with the official announcement, we'll get a surprise 2016-2017 Crowded House Tour. Maybe that's why Management and the band are being so...
From https://www.rollingstone.com/m...eartbreakers-730187, it appears as though Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Free Fallin'" made the list of rehearsal songs being considered for Fleetwood Mac setlists, as did Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over." "Oh, Well" was also included, but with vocals from Mike Campbell, as Neil apparently felt that they required more of a bluesy touch than of which he was capable. The first Fleetwood Mac tour date is now only three days away, so more on the...
Article said that Stevie pushed for Free Fallin even though Mike Campbell isn't a big fan of the song after playing it for so many years. Sounds like the band is going more for crowd pleasers over more obscure songs. Fingers of Love would be fantastic in this setting.
Based on promotional performances and interviews to date this portion of the Fleetwood Mac set has potentially been revealed so far: The Chain Gypsy Second Hand News Little Lies Gold Dust Woman Don't Stop Free Fallin' Don't Dream It's Over Oh Well (Part 1) Dreams As much as they've mentioned 3 hour sets, and I hope it's true - I'd guess this will be closer to half of the show. It's mildly surprising "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" doesn't appear to be the nod to Tom Petty & The...

Wow! Nice additions there, particularly - "Man Of The World". Neil and Mike Campbell did a great job on it at Largo while they were in tour rehearsals so a little surprising it's taken almost a year to make it into the set - it was a #2 hit. Only a few of their singles from any era of the band have charted higher in any territory. With "I Got You' reinstated in the set that would potentially be an additional three songs featuring Neil on lead vocal going forward on the antipodean tour...
Good review. I’m also pleased they noted that it takes an additional 5 musicians on stage to complement the 6 billed as Fleetwood Mac. I’ve seen this tour and really enjoyed it, but it is very much best not to think too much about it, musicianship-from-Fleetwood-Mac-wise.
I see the extra musicians as just filling out the arrangements...I don’t see them as compensating for something lacking in the core band. FM is rich enough to afford that level of production and I think they just want to put on a big show.
Exactly. It's also worth pointing out that what I recall as being much, if not exactly the same musicians and backing singers were augmenting the principal players when I last saw Fleetwood Mac with Lindsey in the band ten years ago and have been for many years and several tours. Plus they also receive full introductions to the audience during the show so it's not like they're a deliberately overlooked presence.
Yeah - I wasn’t suggesting it was either hidden (though for years the percussionist was behind Mick’s drumkit until they started getting bad press about it) or that it was different with Lindsay. I just find it interesting that it takes a village, as it were. It would be a nice moment if Christine were to play the DDIO organ, instead of leaving it to the keyboard player in the shadows.
Hopefully I didn't miss out on any -- final list: The Chain Gypsy Little Lies Second Hand News Gold Dust Woman Don't Stop Dreams Say You Love Me Black Magic Woman Everywhere I Got You [Split Enz] Rhiannon Tell Me All the Things You Do Storms World Turning Hypnotized Oh Well Don't Dream It's Over [Crowded House] Landslide Isn't It Midnight Monday Morning You Make Loving Fun Go Your Own Way Free Fallin' [Tom Petty] All Over Again Johnny B Goode [Chuck Berry] Hold Me Man of the World Blue Letter
The is one more off the radar corporate performance on Wednesday in San Francisco but I don't anticipate any set list changes, and possibly not even a full show performance so that does look like the complete Neil Finn/Mike Campbell era Fleetwood Mac all inclusive set list.
I tend towards the assumption that there's nothing major behind announcement delays. That is, there's nothing for us to worry over/get excited about. It's probably just making sure that everything is in place promotion-wise before hitting the Go button. But it's the "newly mastered" bit that worries me. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the mastering on the first three albums - in fact, it's pretty much as good as one could want IMO. Together Alone could use a little less compression but...
Release date on Amazon in the US is not until November 18 for the vinyl. No mention yet of the CD's. I think I'm going to wait and see if it is possible to just purchase the bonus tracks in download form at some point. I have no real desire to repurchase CD's of albums I already own, especially when I hardly ever listen to CD's any more.
I think the main reason to remaster any album of that era is, analog-to-digital conversion is vastly better than it was 20-30 years ago. All other things being equal, they will sound better for that reason. But I share your worry that all other things will likely not be equal..
