I really love the Christine Perfect album. Its straightforward production is far from being a defect, as some fans of the later Mac would believe, I'm sure. To my ear, the simple, mostly unadorned recording of voice, keyboards, and drums/bass/guitar accompaniment is just right.

I'm sorry that Chris herself has criticized this album, when in my opinion what she doesn't like about it is why it's so good.

I absolutely love listening to the early Christine on keyboards, up through the end of the Bob Welch era of the Mac. Her piano and organ work on the early recordings is so prominent in the mix, and such a pleasure to hear. In fact, I really dislike the way the later Mac recordings tended to mix her keyboards down to the point that they sometimes get lost in the mix.

Agreed. When you hear the early take of Sugar Daddy, the organ is tasty!! It's so mixed down in the original studio that I cringe now when I hear it.

Or that YouTube version of Rhiannon where it’s just vocals and the Fender Rhodes. You really see how much of her presence has been mixed down. So sad. On the other hand, her layers of keyboards are all over Rumours.

Could you please provide a link to that - I haven't heard this version yet (I must confess that I'm more proficient in the Peter Green years than in the later eras).

Isn’t it great! I wish there were more audio videos that isolated Christine’s keyboard parts. And whatever we think of Stevie now, her voice was once so sexy and alluring….

That's true, and it's even more true of the White Album. I think that's the reason I like the White Album the best of the latter-day Mac albums (even more than Rumours).

You’re welcome. I love her playing. It has real character...she’s not an anonymous session musician.
