I love No Road!! I'm going to have to break out the Christine Perfect album.

Hard to pick one out from the others...
...but it if pushed it might be tied with Close to Me.

I'm particularly fond of "Wait and See," but the other tunes people have mentioned are great, too. Too bad Chris herself never really promoted this wonderful album, and the other tunes from that period like "Gone Into the Sun."

There are Fleetwood Mac tribute bands out there that are supposed to be pretty good. I'd really like to see a talented woman who sings with a smokey voice and plays killer blues piano present a tribute show covering Christine's early years. It might only appeal to a tiny segment of Fleetwood Mac's fan base, but I think it would be VERY appealing to those of us who care about that part of Chris' career.

The three songs she recorded after the album came out ("Gone Into the Sun," "It's You I Miss," and "Tell Me You Need Me") show real growth in her and in the band. If she'd stuck with that label and those musicians, she would likely have built a low-key but highly-respected body of Christine-centered music, somewhere between Dusty Springfield and Bonnie Raitt.

But, time proved her decision was the right one. Mac would not be Mac without her.

Where do we find the BBC rendition of No Road and the others? Are they on CD? Not the Legendary Christine Perfect version.

I’d like “Crazy ‘Bout You, Baby” a la Madison Blues.

I much prefer the Madison Blues (live in studio) version as well. She sounds great and the two guitars are aggressive yet tasteful.

Yes, indeed! I remember when this was released how much more I appreciated the song.

Thank you! Her organ work on a few of the pieces is inspired, as are her vocals and piano.

Did she play piano on "Tears in the Wind"?
