She did, thatís exactly why they released an EP instead of just 2 songs for streaming as LB originally proposed - as a calling card for the full album coming next ( which ended up morphing into BuckVie once Chris joined, instead).

Stevie didnít want to work on the album, the other 3 started and then gave her what they had to pick 2 songs to release for streaming before their 2013 tour. She picked Sad Angel and Miss Fantasy. They added her vocals to those but then she decided there canít be only LB songs coming out so she pulled her ancient demo and insisted on EP instead.

I'll buy that. Tango was mostly Lindsey and his tricks.

Tango was BuckVie 0.1.

Interesting that Christine was the only one that LOVED making Tango. John had trouble getting his groove to play. Stevie was in rehab or never there or showing up drunk. Lindsey was pissed at Mick buying drugs in his driveway and trying to just get the process over with. Christine says she loved this experience making Tango with Lindsey. So you are correct, it sort of was BuckVie, the early years.

I'm also a huge fan of Miss Fantasy although I can see why it might not fit everyone's taste. I also love It Takes Time. It's unlike anything Lindsey has ever done in or out of Fleetwood Mac. Without You is straight garbage and it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that it's a Stevie song. The song is so lifeless and dull and uninspiring. Lindsey deserves some blame for not getting more out of it but at the same time Stevie has a history with songs like this. Without You is right there with Second Time. They're two of the dirt worst songs in the history of Fleetwood Mac.
Without You is by Danny Kirwan?
No, I'm being smart.
Love Without You, love The Second Time.
Love All Over Again. (Christine song, current tour closer song.)

Doesn't hurt that the songs she wrote for that record were all monsters, (Mystified aside, perhaps, although if anyone wants to argue that point, be my guest).

Tango as BuckVie 1.0 is an interesting notion. And given all of that parallels/similarities, that might be the way people should look at it in the history books. All the same people, essentially, just a different name on the cover.
