    Fleetwood Mac is set to release their first album from the Buckingham-Nicks version of the band in over 15 years Spring of 2003. I for one cannot wait. Everyone is on board except for Christine McVie, but as long as Lindsey Buckingham is a part of it should be quite an album. I picked up The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac double CD last week at Best Buy for $16 (couldn't resist...nice to have 36 classic Mac songs together on two discs) and am hyped for the new album.

    But I wonder if Buckingham still plans to release his solo album that has been rumored about for, oh, five years now? I hope he has only delayed working on his solo album to put all his efforts into the Mac album...which is probably the case.

    Anyone else looking forward to the new Fleetwood Mac release...and the oft delayed solo album from Buckingham?

    I'd heard that Fleetwood were going to release a new album this spring as well, Brian. However I hadn't heard that Christine wouldn't be taking part....bummer! This is a huge dissapointment as Christine is my favorite singer (in this band) and while I'm still looking forward to this, it will never be able to equal the classic Mac of the past without Christine.

    Wonder why she didn't participate? She seemed happy during The Dance concert.

    Excellent news!!! I highly await this release too. I just hope its a little better than Behind The Mask. I never cared for that disc at all, a big let down for the follow up to Tango In The Night.

    As I recall reading somewhere, Christine was never into rock n' roll life as much as the others. She wants to stay home in England rather than bounce from city to city performing on stage. She's put away enough dough away for more than a few rainy days. It is a shame she isn't participating anymore. The harmonies just won't sound the same.

    I've heard rumblings that the Buckingham solo album has been absorbed into the new Mac album, which may be a double-CD set.

    There's a mention of the upcoming Fleetwood Mac album in the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine (with Britney on the cover)...."Infatuation" is being considered as a possible title of the disc. Another possible title was mentioned but I forget.

    McVie is awesome and a big part of Mac, BUT having LB and Nicks together on the album should make it pretty damn good (hopefully). LB is my fav songwriter from the band.

    Behind The Mask, which I do not own, was Mac minus Lindsey Buckingham...which is roughly equivalent to fries without ketchup. It just ain't the same! Billy Burnette and Rick Vito replaced Buckingham for this Mac release and the subsequent tour. But there was no way they were going to replace the creative contribution that Buckingham had always brought to the band, one of the most underrated musicians and songwriters in rock history IMO.

    Ryan--A double album? Had not heard anything about that. Are you saying that the stuff Buckingham was working on for his solo album is being incorporated into the new Mac album done with the band or that Lindsey's stuff would be included as a kind of separate album without the band proper? The second option doesn't seem likely and if the first option is true then it would mean the Buckingham solo album has been scrapped...which would be a true shame. I have been looking forward to a new Buckingham solo album as much as a new Mac album with Buckingham included.

    It is a shame McVie has opted out of the new Mac project. I also read that it is because she is done with the rock n roll lifestyle. They will miss her vocally but musically she should not be very hard to replace...Buckingham has even made a comment along these lines.

    I'm betting it will be a pretty darn good album.

    i'm hoping the new album has some of the simplicity that made Rumours such a great album. Never Going Back Again, I Don't Want To Know and Songbird being my favorite songs on Rumours.
    Rumours being the very first album i ever bought [​IMG]
    (along with Fly Like An Eagle [​IMG] )

    Thanks for the info Brian. I knew something was missing but wasn't quite sure what it was. I bought that disc in 1990 when I was 16, listened to it once or twice and never bothered again.

    Maybe next time I'll read the liner notes.
