Sisters Of The Moon and Lindsey's guitar
 
I've just been revisiting the Deluxe Tusk set, and I found myself marvelling at the guitar in the Sisters Of The Moon remix. I know Lindsey would always downplay his abilities as a screaming-guitar-soloist, but I think he protests too much. Songs like Tango In The Night, or the Live album versions of I'm So Afraid and Don't Let Me Down Again, all have magnificent epic solos. I'm So Afraid, in particular, rivals Comfortably Numb for me.

I've never had much time for guitarists who can noodle up and down the fretboard, as if they're just filling up their allotted number of bars by attempting to dazzle with their virtuosity. I much prefer a solo that comments on the song, or takes it onto another level. I'm thinking of that euphoric solo in You Make Loving Fun, or the glorious one that ends Book Of Love! So beautiful. Those two solos in Mystified - they just carry me off into rapture.

Book Of Love(and Can't Go Back) are pure pop heaven. Mirage is so underrated!

Oh definitely! And those backing vocals in Book Of Love - heaven.

I love LOVING CUP from Go Insane. His guitar melody and guitar solo is insane (pardon the pun).

I love it when Lindsey rocks or is mystical with Christine like on Oh Daddy and Straight Back

In my dream setlist world, I always wanted Lindsey to do Book of Love in a live setting. Even if he reworked it to a solo tune a la Big Love/Go Insane/NGBA, I think it would have been a great choice and a welcome way to change up that Big Love/NGBA duo he seemed to have stuck to in Fleetwood Mac shows.

Can't Go Back is another one that should have been tried some time. I could have seen that in the mini set where Mick plays the "cocktail kit."

yes - that screaming guitar solo on SOTM remix made me a fan of SOTM all together. and that's why i so disliked neutered version of SOTM on recent tours. guessing SN wouldn't let him steal her thunder considering all his solos on her songs were basically cancelled on recent tours, while once Christine came back he really added back some dazzling guitar solos, on songs like You Make Loving Fun. but SOTM remix guitar solo takes that song on a completely new level and it's among my favorites of his.

Everything about SOTM 78-82 was stunning.

I love the end of Wish You Were Here for the guitar.

YES
How could I have forgotten that one :eek: Its one of life's travesties that this song was performed on 3 world tours yet NEVER with Lindsey. We should sue for damages.

Chris's keyboard playing at the end of Oh Daddy is just as good.

Can I also add the fabulous demented chicken solo from I Want You (plus the playout)?
