Just love this album. It has my favorite version of Rhiannon because it has both taken by the wind and taken by the sky versus instead of just wind like the recorded version, or sky like in most later concerts. Also love these versions of One More Night, Over My Head, Over & Over, Sara, Fireflies and Iím So Afraid.

The mystery of Sara is an ongoing mystery. How did they rerecord a lead vocal in 1980 and make it sound like the Mirage tour vocal?

There was a Pop Eye (Patrick Goldstein) article in the Times in the weeks before the end of the tour in L.A. It said that the band was going to record the final two shows for a live album. I guess the band didn't like what they heard, and decided to make the album a cobbling together of different times and places. We've all talked before about whether we would have preferred a single unified warts-and-all recording from one night.

I haven't listened to it in years but I think the Hollywood Bowl bootleg (I guess this would've been the last concert of the tour) was pretty good but from what I recall, they were pretty rough by then.

I've loved the Live 1980 album for years but quite honestly, some of what came out on the Tusk Deluxe release is far superior or good in their own right. Sara and Rhiannon were from late in the tour and they sound great despite not being "peak" and some of the stuff from that Wembley 6/22/80 show is phenomenal. It was nice to finally get an official release of so many of the Tusk songs that the Live 1980 album ignored. I'll never get how they ignored Tusk, Sisters, You Make Loving Fun, or the freaking Chain on that album!?

Can't understand why The Chain was not included in this Šlbum.

You got that right!!!!!!!
Amen!
As wonderful as the Live album is, it could have been so much better. I would sacrifice Fireflies, One more lonely night, and Farmers Daughter for a 1980 Live Chain and Sisters.

The live album has probably the best live version of I'm So Afraid. Even though Sara is touched, you would never know it and its beautiful.
Over My Head rocks too. I wish they would play it like that today.

The one from the live album is good but my all time favorite Sara is the Tuscon Tusk tour one. The last 2 minutes or so of that give me goosebumps. Stevie did a wonderful fade out and the guitar performance that follows is probably one of the most breathtaking things I've ever heard, especially coupled with Christine's playing.

There were enough tracks left off the Live album to have had an alternative double live album in 1980!
Blue letter
World turning
Frozen love
Why
Station man
Hypnotised
Green Manalishi
Secondhand news
You make loving fun
The Chain (my fave track!)
Songbird
Oh daddy
Gold dust woman
Silver springs (they performed this in '77)
Think about me
Sisters of the moon
Tusk
Angel


I wish some of these had made the real album!

Instead, we got painfully long versions of NGBA, Landslide, O&O, NTF, etc.

OMG
Over and Over making the album was the best decision ever. The song is unleashed to something so much better than the album version. Those harmonies! The hypnotic guitar rhythm at the end. Its the best part of the live album IMHO.

No doubt they could have fit some amazing songs dropping Not That Funny and the unleased songs. The Chain would have been so good.
I like this album so much better than The Dance. The Mac sounds like a rock band on the 1980 Live album.
