Fleetwood Mac - Tango In The Night
This album was recorded while most of the band were deep in the throes of a severe cocaine habit. Stevie Nicks was fresh out of rehab when she laid down her tracks and her voice was apparently not what it used to be. Lucky for them, Lindsey Buckingham’s artful production skills turned this would be disaster into one fantastic album! It’s not quite the masterpiece of Rumours (but what is), but it’s still a great standalone album with some all time classic sing-along-worthy songs like “Big Love” and “Little Lies”. Anyone else a big Fleetwood fan? What do you think of this one?
"I think," says Buckingham, "some people are probably getting the impression that we are back together or something along those lines. Which is certainly not true. Not yet, anyway. You never know. I don't foresee that at all. But, you know, things . . ."
Stevie Nicks sits up very straight when she hears that notion: "Over my dead body. See, I don't want to be part of that darkness. He knows that. When we're up there singing songs to each other, we probably say more to each other than we ever would in real life. If you offered me a passionate love affair and you offered me a high-priestess role in a fabulous castle above a cliff where I can just, like, live a very spiritual kind of religious-library-communing-with-the-stars, learning kind of existence, I'm going to go for the high priestess."
Who doesn’t love a snapchat filter and #fleetwoodmac my little girl can’t get enough.... Check it out my piece up close and personal. The colours aren’t a true indication due to the snappy filter but look at all the #texture 😍
Best/worst cover art
#bobdylan#highway61revisited . One of my all time favorite cover albums. I want to go on a musical journey by the photograph and feel what was going through his mind when this album started to evolve. And that jacket 😍 maybe let’s get a reissue and the record could be the color of that jacket. 🤷🏽♂️ just saying.
#fleetwoodmac#tusk . One of the greatest bands of all time with one of the worsts album covers of all time. Their previous album covers felt like postcards. And that was pretty awesome to see. But wtf when this was printed. It also happens to be my favorite Fleetwood Mac album. 🙁
Y’all. My best friend, is so extra. My birthday just so happened to fall on my favorite day of the week.. TACO TUESDAY! She cooked tacos, street corn, got me macaroons, and bought me a ticket to the Fleetwood Mac concert in February. I seriously cannot fathom how awesome she is, superwoman is an understatement. Thank you @kirstenicole , you rock. .

Day 9 of 10 Ten albums, in no particular order, that made an impact on you and are still in your rotation today...
A minor explanation: most people would pick Rumours which is a classic of course, but the self-titled #fleetwoodmac (or “white album”), the first with Stevie & Lindsay, is the one I grew up on and it’s also excellent.
