Put it a different way: people around here express the sentiment that Fleetwood Mac was so desperate by 1995 that they needed Lindsey to bail them out. How so? As you mentioned, Christine wrote lovely songs for Behind the Mask and Time, and even more so on the box set songs. So, the core three, the only ones who matter in the Time equation, still had their creativity in tact. So, they didnít necessarily need Lindsey to bail them out creatively.

So, how else would he have bailed them out? Commercially? That where the viability and sales come into play, because he wasnít in a position to bail anyone out on his name. Charity begins at home.
I donít get it. Yesterday you were comparing how a Stevie single charted just as poorly as Lindseyís Go Insane to show they were both in a similar state of decline...

But now youíre siding with the artistic merit of Behind The Mask and Time over the completely obvious fact that Tango was a blockbuster because it involved the original 5.

When you want to attack Lindsey you dive right into sales. When youíre defending Stevie or Chris itís all about art suddenly.
