Warner Brothers are in the midst of planning a new deluxe treatment of Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 Mirage album with a 5.1 audio mix by Ken Caillat
Rumoured release date of June, 2016
Ken has posted on Facebook that he started re-mixing Fleetwood Mac’s Mirage album in 5.1 for Warner Brothers re-release of a new Deluxe Box of that classic album and the 5.1 mix of Mirage is sounding fantastic! You will all hear stuff you never heard on the album!!
This follows the recent re-releases of Rumours and Tusk where they also received the deluxe box treatment and are also available in 5.1 DVD Audio mix.
Wonder what outtakes and extras we may also get in this deluxe re-release, hope that this will include the original Smile At You and If You Were My Love from Stevie, the jam session of I’ve Been Loving You Too Long and of course the full Mirage concert in audio and DVD of the partial live show that was shown on HBO and released on VHS video as Fleetwood Mac In Concert in 1983.

Fleetwood Mac fans had their minds blown in late 2015 – or at least that’s the reaction we were going for, anyway – when Rhino reissued Tusk in a deluxe edition digitally and on CD that included 22 previously-unreleased live tracks from the band’s 1979-80 tour. For those who didn’t want to buy their umpteenth copy of Tusk, not even for nearly two dozen heretofore-unavailable concert performances, it was also a very frustrating release, especially when those folks were additionally annoyed by the fact that the material wasn’t available on vinyl.
To those individuals, this piece may serve as the equivalent of an emotional massage, to release the tension you’ve been holding in your wallet since then: we’ve just issued Fleetwood Mac: In Concert, which features all of those live tracks on a 3-LP set pressed on180-gram vinyl.
The material on In Concert was recorded at four stops on the band’s tour: Wembley, Tucson, St. Louis, and Omaha. Some of the songs were recorded a few dates into the tour, others were recorded several months into the tour, but they’re all classic tracks, and the sound quality is outstanding.

After 16 years in the Kent wilderness, Christine McVie and Fleetwood Mac are creating magic once again… there’s even a new album in the pipeline. By Reyhaan Day
Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie offers me tea and a seat on a plush sofa. Among the things on her coffee table is a picture book called Crap Taxidermy. There’s a platinum record on the wall, and a stuffed dog looks out from under a side table next to a flickering fireplace.
“Do you like my dog? I found him in an antique shop – he’s 100 years old and I call him Jarvis.”
McVie is a dog person – she had two until recently. “I had a lovely time with them, but do I miss having dogs? Dogs tie you down. Who’s going to look after them when I go on tour?” she says. “I thought about getting a bird – a parrot perhaps – and teaching it to talk.” But McVie doesn’t want to be held back any longer. “I want my freedom now.”
As one fifth of Fleetwood Mac, Christine McVie has helped define popular music since the late 1960s. With her bandmates, McVie has written songs that are loved across generations. With 1977’s Rumours, Fleetwood Mac became superstars, experiencing both critical acclaim and public adoration. She explains that there is something about the band’s music, and Rumours in particular, that appeals to all ages. “Parents played the album at home, but kids gravitated to the album as well; and now some of their children are turned on to Fleetwood Mac.” It’s something that McVie is still surprised by. “It’s really quite amazing, the dichotomy of people coming to see the shows – it ranges anywhere from 80 to eight. It’s very exciting.” Continue reading
