3 million? Come on records don't sell that much anymore. Even if it sells 50,000 that' no where near what they need to make a profit.

According to this q and a with Keith Olsen Stevie and Lindsey own the rights.
"Lindsey and Stevie now own the rights to Buckingham Nicks... they bought it back from Polydor/polygram etc etc... The label in the beginning thought that the album lacked imagination... but by contract they had to release it... nice eh? What a wonderful business this is... I hope they (Lindsey and Stevie) will re release it soon... I'll get on their collective case about it...! I guess I have the only CD in the world.. I pulled out the masters over a year ago, baked them to re-adhere the oxide to the backing, then built a master digital from it... it took me back so many years."

Call me crazy, but I would not be shocked if BN sold more than a Buckingham McVie II or new mac album. It has a large cult following that often spills into circles of folks who are not necessarily giant mac fans.

I am not sure it would. Most fans already have it -either on vinyl or a bootleg CD. The hardcore fans would buy it again if it were re-mastered. But without the Fleetwood Mac moniker, it likely won’t sell very well. Perhaps it should have been packaged with the White album deluxe re-release. That would have excited the fan base, which might have generated a momentum that could carry over to the casual fan. As you noted, sales to the casual fan are a key to success.

It's hard to believe as a serious fan that this hasn't been re-released. It's such a great album. It's the last thing they ever did as a duo of this quality. I mean Twisted is ok. And SA.. zzzzzzzz...

But, I do agree. Sales wise the album was a flop. And even with FM name.. how many units would it actually sell? 3MIL worth?

Would have been great to have a SUPER deluxe version w/ B/N for the White album. Great idea.

If LBCM is a duo album, so is SYW, although quality might be subjective.

SYW isn't horrible... it's just missing something.

Like the BALANCE that has always made FM work?

The QUEEN of FM?

Christine is what balances quirky Lindsey, and ditzy Stevie into.....viable product.

And I prefer Time to SYW!!!

Why would Mick need another drummer(except with FM?)?

I like SYW...it took me ages to get into it, it was a slow burner.
(I also like it as it was £3 from a charity shop, Best Buy ever....)

I think the songs are complex and need plenty of listening to.
Which is just what you want from an album.

SYW is a pleasant surprise every time I return to it. Unfortunately its then an album I tire of fairly quickly.

Apart from we know who, SYW lacks..... happiness

I mean, if you want an album to share your pain with, then SYW it's your choice. I suspect that's the reason Stevie doesn't want to record anymore with FM. She knows she's gonna depress everybody.

Exactly!!!

I too, think that she's miserable these days, and it certainly shows in her music. I'm old, I never married, I had no children(that I didn't kill), nobody loves me, blah, blah, blah. Now that's depressing!

Christine makes loving fun, and that's what always made FM fun!

SYW is a substantial, impressive effort, but it’s really more a gathering of songs—-a lot of songs—than a coherent artistic project. Still, I’m glad to have that music.

It DOES lack humor and light. But it’s intensity is powerful and authentic.

Still, I much prefer Christine’s ITM.
