My Music Monday
While taken from a Fleetwood Mac concert back in 1996, with this version of "Big Love", one would be hard pressed to call it 'Fleetwood Mac'.
Since it is Lindsey Buckingham, the only person playing and only person singing, it is hardly a band effort.
I will give him this, he took "Big Love", a decent (not great), studio song from a decade earlier, rearranged it musically and completely transformed it into a show-stopping performance.
Buckingham, in my mind, has always been a woefully underrated guitarist and he shows here that he actually is in the upper tier of his craft. There are no studio tricks, no overdubs, no pre-recorded tracks. His execution of this song always makes me smile.
