    Wow, that’s an amazing find. I kind of like the album this came off of. For some reason though you can’t find the video for this on youtube.

    Wow, didn’t thought that my request would come THAT fast! Thanks Paul.
    For some reason the 12 inch of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Seven Wonders’ did not make it to a (promo) CD release. Great remix, and I almost know for shure it’s in that archive of yours too…. 🙂

    Thank you for this! Amazing song….
    I have a question Paul: to your knowledge, is it the 7″version the same as the album version? I’m asking because I heard some arrangements (specially the drums) different from the album version, so I thought that maybe they remixed it a little bit to release it as single…
    Thanks!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    ElCid i am not sure I don’t have the album to compare the mixes I am sure this one is different though.

  11. Mike Says:

    Thank you! I have a lot of Stevie’s remixes but not many of Lindsey’s. That’s some big hair on the cover though! LOL

    I never knew this was even a single. Thanks for sharing and bringing back the memories 🙂

  13. Jennifer Says:

    I’ve got to second Silver Blue’s great response here: OMG, OMG, OH EMM GEE! lol

    I used to have a poorer quality digital copy of the extended version in my old music collection so the pristine upgrade here is very much appreciated! Lindsey made some great solo music. It’s a shame it didn’t more recognition back when it was released.

    Thanks, Paul!
