Fleetwood Mac – Tango in the Night

The Guardian has reviewed the upcoming ‘deluxe’ reissue of Tango in the Night.  If you read the first post on this blog you’ll know that this is perhaps my favourite album.  It’s almost all killer.  I can’t get tired of it’s solid gold driving pop and have always been a little surprised that it gets glossed over by the band itself in the various TV docs (no doubt due to what appears to be the toxic environment in which it was created).

I’m a big fan of many elements but the percussion really stands out.  Pulsing and driving on tracks like ‘Caroline’ and ‘Tango in the Night’.

‘Isn’t it Midnight’ another example.  The subsequent ‘live’ VCR in which Stevie Nicks insisted on cutting in close up shots of her face is however priceless.
