Default Out of the cradle

I made this post about what I consider Lindsey's best solo work: Out of the cradle is his masterpiece. But, leaving aside its musical brilliance for a moment, I love it more for a personal thing. I wasn't even born when the album was released, I'm barely twenty two, but I can surely say that this album has changed my life. Lindsey often says that this album gave him a new hope, confidence in his abilites. He found a warmer, open place to express himself after the Mac years. And yet he expressed his pain: the loss of a loved one, his loneliness. It helped me years ago when I felt alone, lost.
If I could ever meet him, I'd thank him for his music of course, but also for being the voice who seemed to understand. Have you any stories about the album to share?

I can't barely listen to the album nowaday, because it has so much power on me , kinda Paul McCartney cryiin for God Only Knows.

IMHO, Out of the Cradle is not only Lindsey's masterpiece but is by far the best solo work put out by any member of Fleetwood Mac, with brilliant production and overall musicianship which unfortunately largely fell on deaf ears at the dawn of the grunge era.

Yes Out of the Cradle is some of his best work. The critics loved it too. I had the cassette tape and would play it all the time in my 1985 Pontiac Grand Am

Stormwind I'm only 20 too. It's nice that FM music has caught on with younger generations a lot over the past few years.

Yeah, here in Italy FM and Lindsey are not so famous, but I was lucky to get into the music anyway.

OOTC is a brilliant piece work and the bootlegs from the tour of the same year are phenomenal. Songs like "You do or you don't" were even better live (his guitar there is speakin...). Unfortunately he didn't play songs like Countdown except for his tv promos at the late show.

Out of the Cradle is got to be my all time favorite Lindsey album. It is a masterpiece. It was a shame it didn't get the air play it should have. I think if it was released in 1989 only a couple of years after Tango in the Night things might have been different.
