I enjoyed the insight on this great last Fleetwood Mac album (BuckMcVie) Christine’s voice is on some of Lindsey’s songs it’s just very deep in the mix. You can see some of that in the documentary that was done promoting the album.

I wish she harmonized on many of the verses on the album like she did in the later live shows on the tour - it sounded great!!!!

I agree to that for sure.

I saw the podcast. Pretty accurate critique. The major weakness here is that Christine is not really present (or audible) on Buckingham’s songs, and Buckingham’s presence on “Game of Pretend” mars an otherwise moving, effective performance by Christine.

One note: there IS an extra Christine track that she wanted to put on the record. “I had high hopes for that song,” she said in a promotional interview. “We’ll use it for the next project,” Lindsey replied. My guess is that he didn’t want to use more than five of his songs on this project and was hoarding tracks for his ensuing solo album. To have six Christine songs to his five wasn’t going to fly either (Lindsey can get insecure). So, we get ten concise songs. I wish there were twelve.

I'm not sure if any other titles have been mentioned, although I do remember McVie saying that they had at least one unused song.

Someone who claims to have worked in the studio when the album was being made commented on the LB/CM YouTube documentary that Christine brought another song to the sessions called “Know Me” or Feel My Love.” I’m not sure if this comment is accurate or bs, but it’s more information than anyone else has ever offered regarding this.

I pretty much block out Lindsey's vocal on Game of Pretend chorus. I don't get that voice he uses on his solo recordings. It's weird because I hear Christine on Lindsey's songs, but most posters here say they can't.

I think it would have been cool to have the ten tracks and then a deluxe edition with two tracks or even the one you mentioned by Christine. Lindsey had Hunger and Ride This Road to my knowledge recorded before they started work on this record.

The silver lining is they performed 8 songs from the album at every concert. Nobody does that. Even Springsteen maxes out at 5 these days. I don't know of other seniors who do that many. Madonna did when she toured nw music but she's on a jukebox tour now.

I hope that song appears at some point as a final Fleetwood Mac track. Stevie could record some backing vocals to it at arm's length from Lindsey. Hopefully she wouldn't ruin it.

Christine is listed as songwriter for the following songs. I can’t remember whether any of these are on solo records. Also, some might be original titles for songs that morphed into other titles…
Can’t get enough
Don’t make me wait
Entire lifetime
Eye to eye
Gina
I believe I believe
Need your love (maybe became Prove your love???)
On our own
Ordinary man
Rain in the summertime
Slow down
This feeling of love
Too much is not enough

Damn….that’s potentially a whole album of material!!!

That’s an outtake from her 1984 solo album and was played on that tour.
