Wow, Stevie's vocals sound AWFUL. Dreams is a mess, she doesn't even know the words, and Rhiannon is a sh&t show as well.

She pulls it out for Sara at least.

I've never been a fan of tribute bands but a small group of musicians from various bands did get together to perform Tusk from the first song to the last. They were very good. This was around 2008 probably. I went with another Ledgie.

Can anyone shed some light on Christine's 'Tusk' songs during the 1979/1980 tour?
There are probably plenty of setlists from that tour as well as other FM tours at www.setlist.fm .

Default If I could change one thing.....

As I was listening to several tracks today from Tusk the one thing I wish Lindsey would have done was to add Christine and Stevie’s vocals to more of his tracks. Save Me a Place, That’s All For Everyone and Walk a Thin Line comes to mind.

And what...make Tusk a full band effort? LOL

Some including Lindsey may say part of Tusk was Lindsey's first solo effort. He did say exactly that right after Tango comparing making both of the albums to the same process and formula. Tango started out as a Lindsey solo album and much of it was recorded by himself in his home studio.

Don't forget SYW. And then BuckVie had a few tunes already recorded.

Speaking of Tusk Rehearsals:

Does anybody have "Oh Daddy" from 10/19? That's the only track I'm missing from that day.

Thanks!!

I love the rehearsals of Save Me A Place with Christine on guitar. Also, the harmonies on that song. And I also love the long version of Not That Funny (Mirage) on the upright. Would love to have seen Don't Stop on the Upright on the HBO special.

It’s so nice to see posts that still exists that I can actually agree with. Save Me a Place with Chris on guitar the three part harmonies.......��

It's just really cool to see them playing as a band.

On the albums:

In their history (Rumours 5) They've also had a back log of songs. It's just that during Tusk and after. LB started recording without them. Then either leaving members off, or adding them later. I think that's my main problem with some of the final material.

Having said that, his work with Christine on Mirage and Tango is impressive. SYW, not so much of a chemistry even though some great songs came out of it.

I never understood why LB didn't exploit those gorgeous three-part harmonies (where both Christine and Stevie kick some serious butt). The lp version is lovely with a hundred Lindseys harmonizing with each other, but think of how much more human and exciting those three voices might have been!

It's for this reason that I particularly love all of side 4. Honey Hi--the harmonies! Never Forget--the harmonies! Beautiful Child--the descants! Walk a Thin Line--the harmonies!

Agreed. The live three-part harmonies on Isn't it Midnight and Eyes of the World are fantastic. Why, oh why were they not considered for their respective albums? Think of how cool Big Love would have been if all three of them were singing on it. When all three voices are singing on The Dance's Silver Springs, I get chills.

Love SYW as a testament to the duo's continued viability as songwriters. The set is strengthened by the trio's instrumentation. But it's so bifurcated. Christine is sorely missed.
