Album Review

In the spring of 2004, Warner Strategic Marketing reissued as remastered expanded editions Fleetwood Mac's first three albums with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Tusk restores "Sara" to its original running length (on the previous CD edition, it was offered in a truncated single edit in order to fit the whole album on one disc), and is given a bonus disc with 21 tracks, which is longer than the original double album. Of these, two are previously released single versions of "Think About Me" and "Sisters of the Moon," and of the remaining 19 tracks, only two are previously unheard songs — and both of those are covers, of Jorge Calderon's "Kiss and Run" and the Beach Boys' "Farmer's Daughter" (the former is a rough studio jam, the latter is polished and very good). The rest of the bonus disc contains demos, alternate takes, and working versions of songs from Tusk. Unlike the Rumours bonus disc, where the alternate takes often sounded like unpolished versions of the final takes, these are often really rough takes, which makes them more interesting listens. What's particularly fascinating is to hear several of Buckingham's songs develop from these demo and alternates to the finished versions on the album. "I Know I'm Not Wrong" is singled out with no less than three versions, and it's compelling listening to hear it grow and mutate from each take. Given that it consists of almost nothing but demos and alternates, the bonus disc is more for the historical record than for listening for enjoyment, but it does offer considerably valuable insight into the creation of the great, unwieldy album that is Tusk, which is what makes this one of the finest expanded reissues of a classic record yet released.

Customer Reviews

Fleetwood Mac Tusk 😎

I can't believe that the very first time I ever listened to a Fleetwood Mac album was when I listened to The album Tusk for the first time, and it was the best music I had ever heard in my life.

I'm a mega Fleetwood Mac fan I've Been to three Fleetwood Mac concerts the first was my first concert I ever saw in my life which was their reunion tour in Buffalo New York at the mid midland arena when I was about 4 years old at the time, the second was their Say You Will Tour in 2004 which was at the Worcester Centrum Centre in Worcester Massachusetts, the third was their 2009 Unleashed Tour at The Fleet Center in Boston Massachusetts.

I've also been to one Lindsey Buckingham Solo Concert at The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom there I was able to have the chance to meet Lindsey Buckingham and ask him to autograph his signature on my under the skin cd and he did by Signing it "To Chad Your Friend Lindsey Buckingham" in I still Have the autographed album today stored in my attic.

So you could say that I am obsessed with Fleetwood Mac and I'll reply by saying that you are right but I will also tell you that Fleetwood Mac has Somehow become a part of my life and they will always be my favorite band and when they come out with their last and final album I will have finally completed my entire Fleetwood Mac Collection.

The best from Fleetwood Mac

This album is sonic perfection. I'm looking forward to the reissue if only to finally hear a "live" version of Stevie Nick's "Angel". My favorite FM song...well one of them anyway.

TUSK!

This album was completely underrated. I'm over the moon excited for this 😍❤️🌙

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 were drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie -- the rhythm section that provided the band with its name....
