Stevie Nicks Stand Back!
By nick trap
I love the live Stand Back on this live album. Good job Fleetwood Mac!
The whole concert has about 20 to 30 songs but these 10 separate are the best!

Love their live versions. Always have. Stevie was fabulous back in the 80's when she solo'd with Bella Donna, Wild Heart - great writing. Despite her "party days" she always managed to keep a solo career, the band participation and her duets that were a part of her own touring were great too! (With Kenny Loggins; Don Henley and Tom Petty). But the ultimate is way, way back; hard to find these days is "BUCKINGHAM & NICKS" - Lindsey and Stevie young and debuting - fabulous stuff. This album is what caught the attention of the threesome FM; they invited the duo in and the band was formed. Rest is history.
Not the whole concert
Was watching the concert on TV and was disappointed that not all of the songs from the concert made it to the album. They sound good and Lindsey's guitar playing is outstanding but I wish Christie was there. I agree that "The Dance" is a better "live" version but I'm sure they cut some of those songs too! Still all in all they are still Fleetwood Mac!
Preview before buying
Disappointing performance from tired and aging rockers. Sorry but it's true ("and I'm getting older too"!). Mick and John are almost as tight as they ever were but Stevie and Lindsey are noticably off the mark. And without Christine's heavenly chorus and bluesy chords they are a shadow of their former selves. If maturing as a performer means subjecting fans to songs that no longer work because they can no longer be played then please performers either never grow up or bring some new magic to the arena. The newer Stevie and Lindsey material is fantastic, but if you want to hear classic Mac live stick with the mindblowing Live '80 album or go to any number of online sources for unpublished performances. There's nothing on this album for me to come back to.
NICKS OF TIME
Stevie will always have that nasal sound. Too bad coke burned it out. She should have done an episode of Nip Tuck
good, but not as good as the dance
Not quite as good as the dance, but it was a great album, and the live version of stand back was incredicble! I just wish the would have put more songs on here.
Fleetwood Mac is the best live band

The only thing better than listening to this album is watching it. I saw the concert on TV and have gone to every Mac, Buckingham, and Nicks concert since. They are fabulous live, never miss a beat and every song drips with energy and passion. For those of you who already have the recorded versions, the live songs are just as good, but have more edge, emotion and aggression. "Come" is a good depiction of this. It's an amazing new song, and a must have.
Best Fleetwood Mac Ever!
This album shows Mick Fleetwoods true prowess on the drums. On Stand Back he does an incredible drum solo that is mind blowing. Only a top drummer who has made a study of drums, their use in different cultures, and with his experience could come up with this. Really inspiring!
FM's still got it!
By music critics who kno good music
i watched this concert on TV a few months ago, and it was so amazing i stayed up until one in the morning wednesday night (or i guess thursday morning) to watch it again. even at 61 stevie nicks has got the best voice on this entire planet, and lindsey is right up there on my list of best guitar players ever. i want to see them live so bad that it physically hurts!
Fleetwood Mac is the best!
A bit disappointing
This album is okay; but it's nothing compared to their 1997 live album, The Dance. One key element is missing: Christine McVie. Seven of the ten songs featured here also appear on The Dance. So, if you already own The Dance, don't bother with this album. The magic and beauty of these seven songs are captured better on The Dance.
