Fleetwood Mac have announced an expanded reissue of their 1980 live album, Fleetwood Mac Live.

The new version, Fleetwood Mac Live: Super Deluxe Edition, will be released as a three-CD/two-LP collection featuring remastered versions of the original double album, along with more than an hour of unreleased live music from the band recorded between 1977 and 1982.

Most of Fleetwood Mac Live was originally recorded while the band toured the world in support of Tusk, their 1979 two-LP studio album. Three songs from that record made it onto Live – “Sara,” “Over and Over” and “Not That Funny” – while the rest of the LP was made up tunes from throughout the band’s distinguished career. Highlights included “Dreams,” “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop” and a blistering rendition of “Rhiannon.”

The album also featured three new songs, including the single “Fireflies.”

Disc three of the new reissue is made up entirely of previously unreleased live versions of classic Fleetwood Mac tracks, including “Tusk,” “Gold Dust Woman,” “Songbird” and “The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown).” The set also includes a bonus 7″ single featuring previously unreleased demo versions of “Fireflies” and “One More Night.”

A booklet filled with rare photos, the band’s itinerary from the Tusk tour, plus a detailed history of the live album completes the set.

The full track listing for Fleetwood Mac Live: Super Deluxe Edition can be found below, along with and unreleased live performance of the group’s classic song “The Chain,” recorded in Cleveland in 1980.

Fleetwood Mac’s 1980 double-album Live was released as a way for the physically, emotionally, and creatively exhausted group to continue the winning streak that saw them dominate the last half of the ’70s with Fleetwood Mac, Rumours, and Tusk. The band recorded audio and video at every one of the 112 (!) dates they played between October 1979 and September 1980 and then proceeded to put together an album that putatively represented a Tusk tour date. In that regard, Live was perhaps the apotheosis of the Frankenstein-ed “live” album. The 2-LP set didn’t just combine recordings from multiple dates on the Tusk tour … it pulled in songs from multiple tours to present a weird, idealized version of “a Fleetwood Mac concert.” The original release threw in a few cuts from the Rumours tour, a song originally released by Buckingham Nicks (“Don’t Let Me Down Again”) that the Mac performed on tour in 1975, and even a couple of studio rarities (“Fireflies” and a cover of the Beach Boys’ “Farmer’s Daughter”). However the album may fail as an accurate piece of documentary audio it more than succeeds as a cohesive piece of rock ‘n’ roll. While some tracks do occasionally suffer a bit from the vagaries of live performance—a cracked voice here, a late guitar melody there—thanks to the embarrassment of riches in their song pool and given that the band was at the peak of their powers, the selection of their best individual performances yielded excellent results, and nearly all of the tracks bristle with energy, vibrancy, and a sense of creative electricity that was surely a bit of a crapshoot on such a long and grueling tour. And, in some cases—”Over and Over” and “Never Going Back Again” especially—the live versions captured here are actually superior to the studio takes, gaining an intensity and immediacy that accentuates their inherent drama. This new edition continues in the original’s tradition, tacking on a third disc of live rarities that’s similarly wide-ranging, including tracks recorded on the Mirage tour which happened two years after Live was originally released. While those extras feel (obviously) tacked on—more than an encore, but less than a standalone show—they also lack the flowing context of the main album and feel far more disjointed in their presentation. Nonetheless, getting to hear the Rumours band take on “The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Pronged Crown)” at the Oklahoma City State Fair Arena in 1977 or a transcendent version of “Songbird” from the tail end of the Tusk tour in Arkansas is still quite thrilling. – Jason Ferguson
