After reading some of the Stevie Nicks "unpopular opinions" thread, it makes perfect sense to me that in order to satisfy Stevie in the wake of cutting "Silver Springs" from Rumours, they agreed to give her writing credit on the song that replaced it ("I Don't Want To Know").

I LOVE LOVE LOVE his studio wizardry. One of the reasons I became a fan. I do wish he would not do those whisper vocals as much.

agree with all of this; but there are times when he takes the wizardry too far, like it's more about showing off the wizardry rather than in service of the song.

Evidently by 1977 he had abandoned the slide on "Monday Morning" (and probably overall):

I think there are too many layers of backing vocals on the Buckingham/McVie album, and not enough use of Christine's voice on Lindsey's songs. I wish that the choruses on every song on that whole album consisted of one clear Lindsey voice and one clear Christine voice singing lovely harmonies together.

YES!!! this exactly... ever since SAY YOU WILL (Or maybe even as far back as EVERYWHERE) Linds stoped making backing vocals for the Mac sound like the THREE DISTINCT vocalists, and instead went for that homogenized multiple- Lindsey-vocal sound. I dont like it. I love how on Tusk, Rumours, and Mirage you can obviously pick out who sang what. It felt organic and beautiful. Now --- esp on Bucky McVie -- you cant descern anyone in the backing vocals It's a like a wash of autotuned, effected martians.

The whispering on "Say Goodbye" really stands out in a negative light when you compare it to live performances. True of many other songs as well (like "Shut Us Down"). It's like he's using his "inside voice."

Default Unpopular Opinion?

I think the Go Insane album is awful. I can't believe he put so many songs from it on the new anthology.

Sounds like someone is playing slide on "Stephanie" from Buckingham Nicks (it's almost a pedal steel sound that comes in at the end of the song). It's either Lindsey or Waddy Wachtel, who seems to be playing slide at the end of "Lola My Love"). There's also slide at the end of the single mix of "Crying In The Night," but that again sounds like Waddy.

"Stephanie" is three instruments (acoustic guitar, keyboard, electric guitar) and sounds more like a Lindsey solo project.

Does anyone know?
