“Little Lies” is a song by the English/American band Fleetwood Mac. It was the third single to be taken from their 1987 album Tango in the Night. As of 2011, it is their final top 10 hit in the U.S. The song was composed by the band’s keyboard player and vocalist, Christine McVie and her ex-husband Eddy Quintela. When released, the song reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. (#1 for four weeks on the American adult contemporary chart) and #5 on the UK Singles Chart.

The single was also available on the 12-inch format, featuring an extended dance version, a dub version, and the single’s B-side, “Ricky”, a non-album track penned by Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham. A limited 12-inch picture disc was also released in the UK, and it was also the first Fleetwood Mac single to be issued on the cassette-single format.

Fleetwood Mac – Big Love (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th May 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

Re-Rip Remastered

I originally posted this 12″ in March of 2010 on the old Blogger site. Since originally ripping the single I have purchased newer equipment and improved some of my ripping technique. I decided that since I am doing a Fleetwood Mac series that I would revisit this 12″ and update the rip. This 12″ is also being offered in 24bit lossless for the first time. Enjoy!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Big Love” is a song by Fleetwood Mac, that appeared on their 1987 album Tango in the Night. The song was the first single to be released from the album, reaching number five on the U.S. charts, and number nine in the UK. The single was also a hit on the American dance charts, where the song peaked at number seven.

A 12-inch version featured an extended dance mix, with added vocals by Stevie Nicks. While the 12-inch version included “You & I, Part II” from the Tango in the Night album, the 7-inch version included an non-album track, “You & I, Part I”. A limited edition 12-inch picture disc was released in the UK, as well as a double 7-inch pack, which contained the “Big Love” single, and an exclusive 7-inch featuring “The Chain” as an A-side.

“Big Love” was written by Lindsey Buckingham, and was originally going to be part of his third solo album which he began working on in 1985, but the project became a Fleetwood Mac album instead. The song epitomised the stylised production techniques used on the album, with its provocative “oh – ahh” male/female vocal exchange. Though many assumed the female “ahh” to be Stevie Nicks, it was actually Lindsey Buckingham performing both, created by way of his voice being sampled and altered in the studio to mimic that of a woman. The sample was aired several times on Late Night with David Letterman, where Letterman told viewers they were hearing the sounds of CPR.

Since Buckingham left Fleetwood Mac in 1987 (shortly after Tango in the Night was released), the band never performed “Big Love” live until his return in 1997. It was in 1993, on his first solo tour, that Buckingham performed a stripped down guitar-only version of the song. In 1997, he performed it in the same style on Fleetwood Mac’s live album and video The Dance, as well as also appearing on the second volume of Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown film soundtrack. Buckingham continues to perform the song on Fleetwood Mac and solo tours.

Special note about this single: First pressings of this 12″ had the label missprinted to show that it portrayed having “You and I (Part 1)I”, as the B-side. This is incorrect, the single actually contains the album track “You and I (Part 2)”. Later editions had this corrected on the label. This problem also exists of the Canadian edition of the single. *As a bonus track I have included “Big Love (Remix Edit)” taken from the US 12″ promo Warner Bros. PRO-A-2723.

The Dream Academy – Indian Summer (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th April 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

Produced by Hugh Padgham and Lindsey Buckingham “Indian Summer” was the first single from The Dream Academy’s second album “Remembrance Days”. The song is about reflecting on the past, especially with previous friendships and relationships. The scene of the song is set with a group friends on holiday who decide to stay during an Indian Summer. Critics had drawn many parallels with the song and their debut single “Life in a Northern Town”, especially with the chant at the end of the song.

The video was played regularly on VH1. Despite this, the single failed to chart, something that would plague the band’s subsequent singles until they split up in 1991.

Lindsey Buckingham – Go Insane (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 22nd February 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Go Insane” is the title track of Lindsey Buckingham’s second solo album. Released as a single, 3 July 1984, it became Buckingham’s second solo hit (after “Trouble”, three years earlier). “Go Insane” is Buckingham’s most recent US solo hit (peaking at #23 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart); on the other hand, it did not chart in the United Kingdom.

Lindsey Buckingham has said, when asked about the meaning of the song, insanity can said to be very relative to the context you find yourself in. An example might be a very acceptable and typical behavior for a group of people in a little rock and roll microcosm, might be grounds for someone being committed if they worked in a bank.

“Looking at it that way we all tend to go insane a little bit, I think that’s ok. I think that’s one of the things the album is saying – it is ok to go insane, it can be quite cathartic actually, to watch yourself go out to the edge and sort of reel yourself back in – now hopefully you do reel yourself back in.

“Another point the song makes is if you happen to be with someone else who takes that sort of behavior too far, and you’re not willing to give up whatever that relationship might be – then you will tend to go a little bit insane with them.

“And if they are doing that you will experience a lot of the things they are simply by virtue of being a part of that. The important thing is not to take it too far, I guess.”

At the time, he had a relationship that was close to ending (or maybe had just ended) with Carol Ann Harris. According to Buckingham, she was using drugs and Buckingham tried to stop her, but with no results. Two of his lines, “I lost my power in this world / Cause I did not use it”, could be interpreted to be about how he had waited too long to try to stop her. Harris, however, in her book “Storms,” claims that she only used the drug with the band and her friends and Buckingham used it in equal abundance.

In pop culture the song was featured in the Miami Vice first season episode “The Great McCarthy.”

On the original “Go Insane” LP “Playing In The Rain” is split into two parts on this 12″ it is the full version.
