A Christine McVie anthology would need to include at least one or two of her songs with Chicken Shack. She played an incredible blues piano, and it was the lead instrument on her songs. I didn't like Chicken Shack as a band -- the lead singer was a shrieker as both a vocalist AND a guitarist -- but the handful of songs Christine did with them are mighty fine.

I sometimes wonder what would have happened if, instead of quickly veering off into the pop world, Chris had stuck with the blues. As she developed both her songwriting and keyboard skills, if her popularity continued along the arc that her solo album set her upon, she could have become the Bonnie Raitt of the blues piano.
