Product Description

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Fleetwood Mac's landmark Rumours album, the classic Fleetwood Mac lineup - Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks - have reunited for an MTV special, a national tour and this extraordinary new album. Drawn from three intimate performances on a Hollywood soundstage, The Dance features superb new versions of classic Fleetwood Mac material, as well as several new songs! Certified at 5 million units by the RIAA. (3/00)

Amazon.com

Fleetwood Mac's 1997 reunion could have been the kind of event that works on video--great concert, after all--but ends up not paying off in repeated listenings on CD. But The Dance, while concentrating on the group's '70s and '80s triumphs, finds the Mac energy running high and impassioned. New songs like "Temporary One" and "Bleed to Love Her" are fine additions to the canon, while "Everywhere" and "Say You Love Me" both breeze along the way you remember them and manage a reinvention in the live setting. The dark side of the vision is accounted for with Lindsey Buckingham's crazed solo "Big Love," but best of all is "Silver Springs," wherein Stevie Nicks tears the roof off the sucker and sets fire to the rubble. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

I am a huge Fleetwood Mac fan and this album is a great addition to the collection.
David
This is how much I love this album; I bought it twice in a month on cassette when it first came out because my first copy got stolen.
K. Churn
That's what has made it special and why this group will always make great music together.

It seems like every ten years Fleetwood Mac somehow finds their way into the spotlight. In 1977, they had the spotlight with the landmark album "Rumours". After the two follow-up albums to "Rumours" didn't quite measure up to the 1977 classic, Fleetwood Mac would take a five year hiatus. After that hiatus, the band would reunite for what was considered a moderately successful 'comeback' album called "Tango in the Night". It was following "Tango in the Night" that major changes would be in-store for the band. Right after the release of "Tango", guitarist and vocalist Lindsey Buckingham - a major creative force would depart from the group. Eventually Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie - the other 2/3 of the creative force in terms of songwriting and vocals would depart. By 1995, Fleetwood Mac with founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie would still try to go on - this time they would bring in the likes of veteran rocker Dave Mason, but it was clear things were not the same. As 1997 approached, things started to swing upwards again. As told on this CD, Lindsey Buckingham asked Mick Fleetwood to play drums on an album we was working on. Eventually "one thing led to another" and the 5 core members (Buckingham, Nicks, Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie) were all back in the studio. This would eventually lead to some touring - thus in 1997, the live album "The Dance" was released. With live albums, they are often hit or miss, but this on this one - Mac hits on out of the park. Not only do they put out an album that was the best of 1997, they put out one of the greatest live albums - ever.

There are two components to why "The Dance" was so special. These two components have been Mac staples throughout their careers. The first is that the 5 members captured raw emotion on "The Dance".

"The Dance," Fleetwood Mac's ninth and perhaps best album, is a must-have live recording of some of their greatest, most timeless hits mixed in with a few new gems from the group's three gifted, profific songwriters; Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and Christine McVie. The Mac sound better than ever as they dust off old favorites such as "Say You Love Me" and "The Chain" with renewed vitality. Stevie Nicks' rendition of the lost classic "Silver Springs" is the album's standout track; Nicks sounds just as powerful as ever as she wraps her sexy, velety voice around this grammy- nominated single. Other masterfully remixed tracks include a moving new version of "Rhiannon," as well as an amazing take on "Big Love." The USC Trojan Marching Band joins the gang for rocking renditions of "Tusk," and "Don't Stop." This album helped me rediscover Fleetwood Mac (and fall in love with Stevie Nicks)-- It's one of those great CDs you will listen to over and over again, and appreciate it more every time.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Candace Scott on September 2, 2000
Format: Audio CD
This live album showcases the incredible musicianship of Fleetwood Mac. John McVee is one of the most overlooked and under-rated bass players in rock. He is truly gifted, listen to his driving, pulsing back beat throughout most of the songs. Mick's drumming is also inspired. Buckingham is usually given most of the credit as the quintessential musician in the band, but this is shafting McVee and Fleetwood, who are awesome in their own rights. Moreover, the vocals here are fresh, vibrant and impassioned on all the songs. This album proves conclusively what a professional and polished unit Fleetwood Mac has always been.
What is remarkable is that these live versions are equal to, and in some cases, superior to the familiar and classic studio versions. Don't Stop and You Make Loving Fun on this album are better than the Rumours versions (honest!)
The pinnacle here is Stevie Nick's haunting and beautiful Silver Springs. She finally resurrects this little-known ode to Lindsey. The arrangement here is as stirring and lovely as anything this band ever recorded. This is a powerhouse band sounding (literally) better than ever. A joyful listening experience.

Live albums aren't easy to pull off, but this recording of Fleetwood Mac's 1997 reunion concert comes out a winner. THE DANCE marks the first time the most popular lineup of the band had performed together in 10 years and the program (along with the following tour) proved to be a moving and lucrative investment. The song set includes the typical mix of familiar songs along with a few new ones. Like most live albums, there is an air of predictability that hangs over the proceedings, although this never becomes a major problem. No matter how contrived the reasoning behind the band's reunion, the audio version of THE DANCE retains all of the cathartic emotion and sheer excitement of that evening's performance.

The band sounds great, and all three of the vocalists are in good form. It is true that Stevie Nicks has lost a noticeable amount of her vocal range. This is especially jarring on "Dreams," where Nicks' inability to reach the higher notes lessens the impact of number. However, Nicks' intensity as a performer carries her through, and her now-lowered actually benefits several of that evening's selections.

The same is true of Lindsey Buckingham, who does not seem to be able to reach the very top of his range with the ease that he once did. In many ways, he doesn't even sound like the same man when comparing that evening's performance of "Go Your Own Way" to the 1977 studio version. But Buckingham's voice has only increased in sheer power, and I have never heard him sing with such raw and unhinged passion before. Throughout the entire show, he sounds alive, wired, and very sexy.

No matter how you choose to look at it, there is no doubt that Christine McVie looks and sounds better than ever.
