Filmed in high definition at an exclusive show at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills in April this year, Songs From The Small Machine

presence to deliver a show that brings the audience to their feet and leaves them calling for more. Starting with five solo acoustic
performances, Lindsey is then joined by his band to rock their way through the rest of the set before a final acoustic encore of Seeds
We Sow brings a perfect evening to an end. TRACK LISTING

5.0 out of 5 stars The Small Machine is BIG on Sound November 1, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
With Fleetwood Mac as my number one musical group and "Go Your Own Way" as one of my two all time favorite songs, I've greatly anticipated the arrival today of this Blu-ray when it was announced back in September. Having attended many of their live concert performances and owning a multitude of the group or individual member's performances on LP's, CD's, Laserdisc, DVD and now Blu-ray through the decades, I am quite familiar with Lindsey's musical contributions.

Recorded at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, CA, this is a wonderfully intimate theater of 1900 seats offers the perfect venue for what is a solo performance by Lindsey for 1/3 of the set (6 songs out of the 19 total) running 1 hour 47 minutes. Sonically, it is Lindsey and his variety of guitars at their peak both in performance and recording. 5.1 DTS HD Master lossless audio without compression is on full display during his solo performances with a sample of the available dynamic range on "Never Going Back Again." Lindsey's vocals and his guitar plucks & twangs are solidly spread across the front soundstage with the surrounds limited to immersing the listener among the concert attendees who's every comment can be heard loud and very clear. As the 3 members of his band contributes their talents starting with the 6th track of "Under the Skin", the surround channels fill with the added vocals and instrumentals expanding the already spectacular sound stage to totally encompass the listener.

Visually, the dynamic range here is every bit as broad as the sound going from the Blackest Black backgrounds during each of Lindsey's solo performances to the absolute peak Whites when the high intensity stage lights are aimed directly into the camera's lens.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!!! September 22, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
ok I dont really understand why Lindsey in general gets such little recognition but even more so on his solo stuff. This new album is nothing short of amazing in my opinion and I have been lucky enough to see his shows starting with Under the Skin, Gift of Screws then I saw him with Mac and most recently Seeds we Sow, this man plays his heart out and is by far one of the best live performers especially for a guy whos 62. On that note if havent been lucky enough to see him live in concert you should definitely pick this up and even if you have you still should I am!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Performance - Amazing Sound November 3, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Like a few other individuals who have posted here, I was able to see Lindsey Buckingham live in concert this year. The experience was unbelievable - Lindsey is extremely underrated as a guitarist, and as I found out from the show, really should be considered the heart and soul of Fleetwood Mac - without him, I seriously doubt they would have had the same level of success.

This Blu-ray is a must own for anyone who is a Lindsey Buckingham fan (or a fan of Fleetwood Mac). The sound quality is just remarkable, and the fact that the set list is identical to what I saw in concert really allowed me to experience that night all over again. There is ample punch with the bass guitars / drums, but also extremely crisp highs showcasing Lindsey's picking skills. You will see several close-ups of the guitar throughout the performance, and his skill is no more evident than on the track 'Never Going Back Again.' The highlight of the performance does come from some of the older songs such as 'Go Your Own Way', but I definitely have new favorites in some of the new songs 'In Our Own Time' and 'End of Time.'

As a music fan, I also purchased his new CD 'Seeds We Sow', and while it is still very enjoyable, I must say that I prefer the new songs from this Blu-ray. Lindsey tends to use some sort of audio filter / manipulation on his audio CDs that allow his voice to come off differently than it does in concert and I have yet to figure out why. The audio from the concert tops the album CD without question. If you end up purchasing this, you will not be disappointed, it's one of the best concert experiences I own.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of our best contemporary musicians December 7, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
As Buckingham explains between a couple songs, the Large Machine is Fleetwood Mac and all the commerce and wealth that came with it. The Small Machine is just him. And he does several songs solo, but he also has 3 additional musicians join him for the meat of the program, so I'm not sure if that becomes the Medium Machine or whether they are just oil for the machine. In any case the machine is in fine working order. Having been in the audience a few years ago when Buckingham performed a concert at Bass Hall in Fort Worth, I can attest to his connection with the audience. That show became his last DVD concert. I noticed some similarities here. He opens and closes solo. He doesn't shy away from the greats ("Go Insane", "Trouble", "Tusk", "I'm So Afraid") which makes the audience increase the pitch to a feverish state. The best one of all is his Chet Atkins Gibson (isn't HD great) guitar shredding on "Big Love" which brings the house down. This time around Buckingham plays numerous tracks from his newest studio album "Seeds We Sow" which is a mixture of up tempo and slower songs with his back up musicians also vocalizing. At times I thought I was listening to "America."

Lindsey Buckingham writes some great songs and has an excellent, identifiable voice. His greatest gift however, may be his guitar playing. Changing guitars with every song, he rarely (saw maybe once) uses a pick and he doesn't have those long pointy fingernails. He uses his finger tips for the most part and he's masterful. The DTS-HD Master audio is spectacular as you might expect as are the visuals. Thankfully the director moves the cameras slowly and purposefully with most of the focus on the musicians and their instruments. An excellent show from one of our best contemporary musicians.
