I know! And when the infamous documentary will be out we'll have a remastered HQ version of it! I want to see even the sweat dripping from their foreheads.

I loved the Mirage/1982 tour so rock and roll just the 5 of them no back up band.

Wonderful to see this. Looking forward to more with the festival doc.

There must be so much footage from throughout the years out there somewhere.

Having said that, it's a bit of a mess, isn't it? What with Stevie missing her cue, and whatever happens in John's bass solo - it sounds like he comes in on the wrong beat, and Mick almost restarts, or something. The sound is not so good - Lindsey solo is very hard to hear...

However, I am grateful for anything!

The audio is screwed up on that video. I'm listening to it on headphones and the left speaker is completely silent. I checked to make sure it wasn't the headphones. They should re-upload it.

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.

I remember at a very young age when I started seeing Fleetwood Mac I realized there was the Studio Band and the Live band two very different sounnds. Today that gap has shrunk.
