Deluxe TUSK (DELUXE EDITION) delves deep into the vaults with five CDs including the remastered original album, an alternate version of the complete album made up of session outtakes, most of which have never been released, as well as an additional selection of singles, demos and remixes, including an outtake of the Top 20 hit "Think About Me," an early version of "That's Enough For Me" called "Out On The Road," plus several incarnations of "I Know I'm Not Wrong." Also included are two discs loaded with 22 unreleased performances from the band's 1979 Tusk tour with selections from concerts in London, Tucson, and St. Louis. It includes live versions of album tracks like "Sara," "Over And Over" and "Save Me A Place," as well as favorites like "Landslide," "You Make Loving Fun," "Rhiannon," "Don't Stop" and "Go Your Own Way." Rounding out the Deluxe Edition is a 5.1 surround mix of Tusk on DVD-Audio and vinyl of the original album on 2-LPs. The collection comes housed in an elegant box reminiscent of the acclaimed Rumours Deluxe Edition with a booklet that has extended liner notes that feature new interviews with all the band members.

After the first listen I found a few of the tracks decent enough but was not blown away, however after a few more listens (the whole album through headphones) I can say that the album is absolutely stunning. It is full of excellent invention and emotion ( haunting as the cover sticker describes well). The production, ideas and playing by Buckingham (who is the clear driving force)really are all top drawer, Stevie Nicks voice is the best it's ever been and the whole band sound excellent throughout. It is certainly not Rumours (of course also brilliant but in a different way) and is not full of radio friendly instantly likeable chart hits, however in my opinion many of the tracks are superior. Real music fans that seek out the talent thats sadly lacking in todays music world should learn to love this. Just give it a proper chance.
After watching various BBC documentaries such as "Fleetwood Mac - Don't Stop" about the trouble and turmoils that each band member went through while recording Rumors, I was hooked once again.
Then recently I listened to an excellent BBC radio documentary called "Followup Albums: Fleetwood Mac Tusk", after which I didn't really want to buy Tusk, thinking that it couldn't possibly be THAT bad?
But I did and have only just finished listening to it - oh my, what a surprisingly BRILLIANT album. I heard a few 'experimental' tracks by Buckingham and although they are a little 'weird' to say the least they are still GOOD. Listening to Sarah, Save Me A Place and Storms makes you feel that this album is another classic - except I heard from the documentaries that it wasn't well received. I just don't get it - WHY?
Was it Buckingham's tracks that reviewers didn't like or were the reviewer simply watching the antics of the band members too closely to fully appreciate the brilliance of Tusk? Even Ken Collett said it didn't sound very good!
I don't know and I am sad that it wasn't well received, but reading the reviews here on Amazon, you can see that the majority feel the same way as I do. Well Done, Fleetwood Mac for recording such a great album.
They have made some great albums over the years but this one is my personal favourite. No wonder the band thanked Lindsay Buckingham for it , his production of Tusk puts him up there with the very best producers and as a guitar player he is brimming with talent. I think that when Lindsay and Stevie joined the band it turned out to be a lottery win for the other three that would be hard to estimate the scale of.
If you know it - you already love it.
Interestingly - as of this month, you can also download the MP3 versions FoC (FREE) from your Amazon account, so I can hear them on my PC or from my none Apple MP3 player and thusly |FM stream a play list by Bluetooth into my car radio.

- oh sorry - not the last bit.
