My point wasn't to revisit the who-wrote-what discussion so much as to provide actual audio (which some ledgies may not have ever heard) of the three songwriters working out the verses. Listening to that audio clarifies a great deal in my mind. But threads have a life of their own!

Adding that Mick seems to like covering songs when he likes them. Case in point: You Might Need Somebody, a Tom Snow song that's been recorded by several artists (including Turley Richards and Joe Walsh). The recording that Mick & Co. did for I'm Not Me is imo the best of them all—smooth, sexy, and ever-so-slightly Fleetwood Mac prickly.

Was it Mick's idea to record For Your Love in the early seventies?

That was Bob Westonís idea.

Good grief! This is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing it! WHY aren't there box sets and deluxe editions with stuff like THIS on them???

great stuff, looks like they seriously considered having a different melody for the chorus with the lyrics "write me a love song, take away the sadness..."

This is fascinating. Thanks for the audio clips. Such gems to hear.

And even though the thread is older and was boosted, I enjoyed reading through on the purported backstory of the song. I knew it was a collaboration of various works put together, and John's baseline, etc, but not so many details. Thanks again.

I still don't get how they got from those demos recorded at Sausalito, to the compressed vocals on the final track - why are they so tiny? It ruins the track for me, and many other Rumours songs, and makes me doubt the quality of the production that went into that album.

And HOW can a kick drum be recorded so badly that it is reduced to a tap.
