Hey guys, I may have raved about Stevie Nicks but its the wrong concert! I remember faking illness so I could skip school and watch the concert at 1pm on HBO. It was 1983 and we did not have a VCR for another year or so. So I had to get my drug anyway that I could if it involved skipping school,waking up at 2 am, or writing long letters to HBO.

This is awesome! Sounds like the dedication I would have had if I had been born back then. We definitely take our modern technologies for granted.

Probably copyright issues.
Had anyone downloaded it in the meantime?

It's still on Vevo: https://www.vevo.com/watch/fleetwood...n/USSE91735504

The quality is a little better than the one that was on youtube anyway. I suggest downloading from there so you can keep a slightly better file.

Wow, Stevie made it so hard to harmonize on the chorus... not so much vibrato, girl..

Christine actually is playing 2 parts on the keyboards... (I sure would love to see her to play keyboards again)

Lindsey's solo was kinda cool. Turn it up a bit.

Great video. Although a few shots of John and Mick would have been nice. I hope we keep getting more US festival videos like this.

Wow... We definitely know why this footage and audio hasn't been released until now. If Dreams and The Chain are any indication of the rest of the show they were NOT on their game that night. I'm gonna hope Christine's songs (YMLF, love in store, brown eyes, etc.) will come off better than the others.

Still I love being able to see this stuff. So much of the older Mac stuff is edited and tweaked to oblvivion, it's great to see live footage of them that is both professional and raw (warts and all).

At the very least I do like the energy they've all conveyed in these two performances. It must've been great to see that live at the time, even if the performances themselves aren't TECHNICALLY very good.
