New CDs: Fleetwood Mac!
Fleetwood Mac fans will be happy about a recently added CD to the Ann Arbor District Library collection: Tribute to Fleetwood Mac. 17 different beloved Fleetwood Mac songs are covered by a variety of lesser known artists on this unique album and I really enjoyed hearing the twists that the different groups put on the classic songs. Some tracks sound nearly identical to the Fleetwood originals with only minor instrumental changes, while others sound like completely different tunes, barely recognizable as covers of the well-known originals. Tribute to Fleetwood Mac is definitely a must-hear for those who love the band (who, incidentally, are fully reunited and on tour this fall!).
AADL also recently added the Fleetwood Mac album Mirage to our collection, which the band released in 1982, after the 1979 Tusk. Although Mirage is not as well-known or loved as the unbeatable Rumours, it does have the wonderful tracks "Gypsy" and "Hold Me" on it and the whole album has a classic Fleetwood Mac feel.
