I really really really like this, Lisa. That singing voice is THE voice. The 1976 Fleetwood Mac could have turned this into a barn burner as popular as Go Your Own Way. I can almost hear an arrangement taking shape in Sausalito, expanding on the acoustic and the two electrics in harmony, along with Chris on acoustic piano and our spare, powerful rhythm section.

The electric guitar harmony lines in tandem remind me of So Afraid and Eyes of the World. I would have urged Lindsey to try a three-part harmony on electric guitar lines, and just go wild (like what he did on Love from Here).

What a great find! The bones of the song are there but sadly they didn’t get a chance to work on it as a band. Sometimes these half finished demos are the best versions anyway (for Stevie, I love the early demos of The Dealer and am not impressed with the final recording).

I heard this several years ago. I always wondered if Stevie didn't write this. It sounds like her lyrics and style during this time. But it very well could be written by Lindsey. I think this song is awesome and I really wish it had been recorded.

I hear it more as an early to mid-‘90s song, with fairly simple production (which was probably not in Lindsey’s lexicon), maybe produced by someone like Rick Rubin.

Great find. Love it! A few observations:

—That guitar solo sounds quite similar to something Danny Kirwan would do. I can see why Mick was initially entranced by Lindsey’s solo on “Frozen Love.” There is an eerie kinship to the Mac legacy even before he joined.

—Parts of this DO sound (as Steve notes above) like 90s roots rock, especially the “I’ve been used” sections.

—Early in each of the verses, Lindsey elongates a note the way Christine does. If FM ever recorded this (and why in the heck didn’t they?) I imagine the harmonies between their voices blending into that amazing androgynous voice they often made together. And Stevie’s aching, pleading alto as contrast.

I love this song, after about 10 times of playing it ..since yesterday.
I have it lodged in my brain ..
I think it’s a Lindsey song, maybe about touring without Stevie.

Ok, the more I listen to it, the lyrics do sound like Lindsey's.

Don't you know
you can find
peace of mind
On your own.

Just with very funky phrasing.

This seems like a Lindsey song -- and it definitely dates from the early/mid 70s. His voice and also the styling of his vocals and guitar solos are very BN era. By Tusk, he wouldn't be playing those very traditional 70s solos. Great tune and a great find! I would love to hear what he has to say about it.
