An introduction to the "lost" middle period
Now that the band is entering into a new, perhaps final phase, with hints that its pre-75 output is going to get some sort of live airing in the upcoming tour, I wonder how we might introduce the uninitiated to the post-Green pre BN era, not that in my heart of hearts I think much (or indeed any) of it will surface during the next tour.
Using my somewhat anachronistic tactic of compiling an 80 minute CD and trying to make something cohesive and flowing out of the Kiln House to Heroes era, I've come up with the following. Yeah, I know, no Station Man (studio version is too plodding) and no Purple Dancer (original studio version unavailable on CD/download anyway). I couldn't bring myself to include a Dave Walker song, even for the sake of completeness.
Spare me a Little of Your Love
Woman of 1000 years
Show Me a Smile
Did You Ever Love Me
The Way I Feel
Caught in the Rain
Child of Mine
Sunny Side of Heaven
Anyone tried anything similar?
To lose Lindsey Buckingham once may be regarded as a misfortune, to lose him twice looks like carelessness.
