None of us can forget the great airbrushing tragedies that have befallen Christine, starting with The Dance cover. Oh, the horrors.

I still don't know who that woman was on the cover of ITM!

yes. i listened to that song again yesterday, and thought about that. i'm wondering whether they changed the lyrics now, updated them maybe? because some of the lyrics in that particular song were really clunky, but the whole paper and border were odd and intriguing. as was his British phrasing (never meant to give you a frown or 'round the corner).

so i pulled lyrics from the net http://www.fleetwoodmac-uk.com/still...ow_lyrics.html (thank you fmfanuk!) -


Sleeping Around The Corner

She called to me
Meet me at the border
Wake me up when my papers are in order

Lord I dont want to bring you down
No, I never meant to give you a frown
I'm just sleeping around the corner

Lord I dont want to bring you down
No, I never meant to give you a frown
I'm just sleeping around the corner

We made sweet love over and over
She said oh sweet darling
I'm your little red rover

Lord I dont want to bring you down
No, I never meant to give you a frown
I'm just sleeping around the corner

She said to me, I dont mean to scorn you
But I'm been lying
And I've been too scared to warn you

Lord I dont want to bring you down
No, I never meant to give you a frown
I'm just sleeping around the corner

Lord I dont want to bring you down
No, I never meant to give you a frown
I'm just sleeping around the corner

yes but once it became a FM album, why did one person's songs unilaterally have to be made to fit the style of other person's? Why not tweak some of both??

Lindsey's solo songs were tweaked. And not for the better. Most of the original versions of his songs were the better ones, but he changed them to make them more Macky.

Although, I do love Miranda and what Stevie adds to Miranda. Miranda, Thrown Down and EFO are my favorite songs on the album.

hmmmm.... adding Stevie's vocals was really the bulk of it. Having listened to both versions, I don't hear much else changed.

I was referring more to the previous comment about making her songs "fit" stylistically with his in terms of arrangement/production. There wasn't quite the same concern, IMHO, for making his songs stylistically like hers.

Doubtful either of their songs would benefit from being force-fit to the other's style....hence the dissatisfaction with some of her songs on DR.

Now with THAT said, kudos to him for the arrangement on Destiny Rules.

His songs weren't made to match Stevie's stylistically, but I do think they were changed to match Fleetwood Mac more stylistically and had less of an edge than the Gift of Screws demos promised.

I agree with bombaysaffires, the only difference I hear in Lindsey's songs are added Stevie vocals. Otherwise they seem exactly the same. Some of them don't even have Stevie on them. I was familiar with the solo versions first and I've never noticed any other differences. I believe in the documentary he even mentions that adding Stevie was all that needed to be done to his songs.

On Morrow, for instance, it seems to me like the mix on SYW is different than what it was in Lindsey's original versions.

Default Murrow

Regardless of the mix, Murrow is a train wreck of a song.

As are almost all of his songs on SYW. I fear for the BMcV album, it will be half Lindsey and thus likely about 50% skip tracks. Extended Play was an example of what we might be looking at...

I agree. I've never cared for it. Too dark and repetitious.

If it's anything like his last album with Christine in the mix, this is going to be fantastic~!
