Deluxe, remastered edition of 1987 LP includes previously unheard demos, alternate recordings
Fleetwood Mac will release an expansive, 30th anniversary edition of their 14th studio album, 1987’s Tango in the Night, on March 10th via Warner Bros. Records. The reissue is packaged in three formats: a one-CD set featuring remastered audio, an expanded two-CD version with rare and unreleased recordings and a deluxe version featuring three CDs, a 180-gram LP and a DVD with music videos and a high-resolution version of the album.
With Tango in the Night, Fleetwood Mac fully immersed themselves in the decade’s glossy production style. Showcasing the diverse styles of primary songwriters Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie, the 12-track LP spawned a quartet of hit singles: “Big Love,” “Seven Wonders,” “Everywhere” and “Little Lies.” Their second highest-selling album behind 1977 masterwork Rumours, it remains the group’s final studio project with the classic quintet line-up of Buckingham, Nicks, McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.
The deluxe and expanded reissues features a disc of 13 previously unheard recordings, including an alternate version of shimmering Christine McVie ballad “Mystified,” a demo of Buckingham’s epic, percussion-heavy title-track and rare B-sides “Down Endless Street” and “Ricky.” The deluxe edition offers a third disc with 14 12-inch mixes – including dub versions of “Seven Wonders and “Everywhere” – and a DVD with videos of “Big Love,” “Seven Wonders,” “Little Lies,” “Family Man” and “Everywhere.”
Buckingham and Christine McVie recently announced an album of duets tentatively titled Buckingham McVie. The set, which features contributions from John McVie and Fleetwood, is loosely slated for a May release. Continue reading
