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.

It was the polar opposite to what the music industry and the so called music critics expected. To say that Tusk was a bold and brave release, would be an understatement. When I first heard the title track Tusk it was on a pirate radio station. The very next day I went out and bought the double vinyl. I knew that Tusk would be completely different from Rumours. As such, I ignored all of the music critics of the day. Ofcourse everyone is entitled to their opinion, be it good, bad or indifferent.
What many failed to realise the sheer amount of complexity on this album.
There are so many different styles of music here,that would make your head spin. What Fleetwood Mac achieved with this album was to show you that their musical horizons were infinitesimal. When I say "styles of music ",what I am trying to articulate is that they are all unique to Fleetwood Mac.
All 3 cds have been beautifully remastered, so you need have no fear as to the quality of the sound quality. CD 2 shows how many of the songs were created. When you get to CD 3 the alternate version, it will be immediately enthralled.
Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie were both at a songwriting peak and their songs on this album are truly awesome, although Stevie's Storms and Sisters of the Moon are real highlights. Buckingham's 'made at home' demo-style songs that sound like cardboard boxes were used instead of drums and rubber bands instead of guitars are really strong too.
The 3 CD deluxe version has an 'alternative Tusk' disc with different version of each song including the 9 minute Sara (edited down from 16 mons apparently).
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.
