My Music Monday

Released tracks from artists I like that I somehow missed. 'tis the theme.

Fleetwood Mac has been through like 89 different iterations. At least six alone since Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nick joined the band.

So in that regard, how difficult could it be to miss a transition? Not very, I say.

After Buckingham departed in 1987, the band brought in Rick Vito and Billy Burnette as replacements. This version of the band lasted one album and maybe two tours - one for sure.

Somewhere in 1991-1992, the band became a foursome - with Nicks and Vito leaving the band.

Allegedly on their 1992 collection 25 Years - the Chain, the quartet of Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Burnette recorded a McVie song called "Love Shines".

Like a lot of her music in the 1987-1995 years, this was written with her then second husband.

McVie was the ground between Nicks flightiness and Buckingham's wanna-be quirkiness. They all needed each other to off set the other two - no matter which way you look at that triad.

"Love Shines" is nice and harmless. That is the McVie way. But this is ok, but not overly interesting. It's also not as lightweight as the disk she did with Buckingham back in 2017.
