I can see why it was important to include it in the set over Dreams or Rhiannon which had already been done the year before on Stevie's HBO special.
I'll take it just to hear Christine play piano and not even look at the keys. She would be playing/pounding and looking at Lindsey or the audience. So freaking cool.


See.....ITS NOT THAT FUNNY!
If 95% of people fast forward through it, it shouldn't have made the cut.

And how can anybody who says he loves the way Buckingham plays guitar not be wowed by his Travis picking during the jam? “Not That Funny” always had some bone-crunching stuff in it live, which wasn’t to everybody’s taste perhaps (and the orgasm at the end was only funny the first few times). But it also usually had the band’s most breathless ad-libbing from Fleetwood, McVie, and especially Buckingham — not every time out the gate but often enough to make me look forward to one of the old concerts. Listen to Buckingham here and tell me this isn’t Travis cool. It’s like “Midnight Special” on amphetamine! Imagine if he had laid down this stuff on the studio track; we’d all be raving about it. And check out Fleetwood’s work on the rims, with occasional slam on the kick for the weird Mick Fleetwood emphasis. This is Austin City Limits at the Inglewood Forum, kids. Picking

Yes, exactly. And now that I've seen it I'd say it's not a prop.

Even more recently, in their dotage, the band released a video of Lindsey and Stevie smoking a joint while recording in the studio. You have to slow down the video to see it.

I think it's absolutely terrific! I don't mind the orgasm. I love watching these 4 make music together like a machine. And as a teen, I was always fascinated that you could do a long song like that and the crowd ate it up. The guitar work is fantastic. And Stevie is back stage doing lines and not faking the percussion.

Do you remember an early 80s radio show called the "Rock Album Countdown"? It was on a rock station I listened to and they would do a weekly countdown of the rock albums and play a song from each album. They also had interviews that may not have been exclusively theirs. I would listen back in 1983 when the Wild Heart was in the countdown. An interviewer asked Stevie point blank: What do you do with so much time back stage at Fleetwood Mac concerts? Stevie's answer: I breathe steam for my voice. Yeah ok LOL I mean she is half right. A white substance was still going up the nose so she was giving a WHITE lie (get it....white lie)

Remember in the backstage Tusk footage she had her head over that steam thing? She had to dance around and do lots of giggling with Robin.

I liked that stuff. I remember at one point Robin was pinning up her hair and Lindsey was like please for the love of heaven can you hurry up. I mean every time he complains about something, she thinks it is because he is jealous of her, but sometimes I think he complained because she was just so darn annoying.

Smoking pot, smoking Kool menthol 100's and doing tons of blow does wonders for the voice

Because she milks her success. Even to her own band. She really has zero class.
