For Your Holiday Weekend Listening Pleasure: Fleetwood Mac's '78 Cotton Bowl Landslide
The recording's an audience keepsake, though it sounds awfully good in spots for a stadium-sized back-pocket keepsake -- especially, and this'll make our Friend happy, during "Landslide." From the looks of the Rumours tour itinerary, the Cotton Bowl gig was toward the very end of a long road slog; a Billboard review outta New York a few days later insisted "Stevie Nicks was in poor form as she seemed unable to get her voice to do the things it does on record." The beauty of the vinyl-to-digital boot -- if she's shot, you can hardly tell. Setlist says the recording's incomplete, only because it lacks the beginning of "The Chain" and closer "Songbird." Which reminds me: What happened on The Voice last night? Ah.
