I can only imagine how hot the organ was after a performance like this. I love Lindsey's guitar solo on the song but I much prefer hearing the organ on this one.
That $tevie is a saint, and quite the visionary.

Giving Warm Ways another listen. It is lovelier than I remembered. Still not crazy about that other line, but "into gentle slumber you can hide..." sigh. Dreamy indeed. Don't think it'll become a favourite, but it was nice to listen to again.

Now just imagine this song being track #2 during the Buck/Vie tour or instead of You Make Loving Fun, this was the second song during On With The Show. I would have fallen out of my chair.

If you listen closely. You can hear a little keyboard churning Say You Love Me in the beginning. Chris was loaded for bear for this album and all Fleetwood Mac albums I would say.

God that is soooooo good!! She really wrote some great songs.

They are unable to savor irony.

But I am equally enthralled with the morose sincerity of “Oh Daddy.” In its own way, that song is as iconic as, say, “Rhiannon,” an archetypal plea from earth-mother/woman-child...

“Sugar Daddy” reminds me of a Penguin for some reason. Not complaining.

The first three albums by the Rumours lineup are flawless, not a bad song on them.

Every "David's greatest hits" I've ever made include Sugar Daddy and World Turning. Every one. I never tire of either.

Can they not tell? I suppose nothing should surprise me. Haha.

Listening to it again today, I've decided it's a fun addition to the album. My former impression of it was that it wasn't ~*serious enough*~ and therefore worthy of derision or dismissal. According to last.fm, the last time I listened to it was in 2014 - once. The two times before that were in 2008, so I'd say it was high time that I listen to it again with fresh ears.

I agree. After that, it was hit or miss.

I agree, too.

As much as I hate $tevie now, Bella Donna is PERFECT. I love every note.

That's cool. Its fun to appreciate older songs you pass by and not like. Years later you learn to appreciate them. When I bought the album Tusk, I hated Storms. My album had scratches on the song which took away the intimacy of the song. Years later I discovered the passion of the song and paid attention to the lyrics and its a great song. One of the best of Tusk.
Only Over You is another song. I hated the song when I first got Mirage. Today, OMG, its one of the best songs on Mirage.
The best songs always take a little time to get to you.

Now if I could get everyone to appreciate Two Kinds of Love, I can sleep better tonight

(I know, I know, quit while I'm ahead)

I used to hate Only Over You and Mystified. I love them now.

Storms still blows goats, though.

No, not that one.

I like Honey Hi and TAM. That’s about it for her on that album.

Since Lindsey always liked to pull out a Tusk song for the tour, I always hoped that Honey Hi would see the stage like Storms and Beautiful Child did.

It sounds like she’s trying to do a Brando impression.
