Posted by DjPaulT on 19th August 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“I Can’t Wait” is a 1986 song by American singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks. It was the second single released off of her third studio album Rock a Little. The song peaked inside the US top 20 at #16 for two weeks and is one of only four of Nicks’ singles to enter the US Dance charts peaking inside the top 30. It also charted in the UK, reaching #54 in the early months of 1986, her first single to chart there since 1981’s “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”. The song also featured on the charts at the same time as another song of the same title by Nu Shooz, something of a rare incidence.

This UK 12″ contains an extended version of the album track “Rock A Little” although it is not listed as such on the sleeve or record label. This version only appears on European issues of the 12″ single.

“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.

Stevie Nicks – Rooms On Fire (Europ 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th May 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

“Rooms on Fire” is a song by the American singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks. Released in May 1989, it was the first single to be taken from Nicks’ fourth solo album, The Other Side of the Mirror.

The song was quite successful on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching #16 in both the UK (Nicks’ first ever UK Top 40 solo hit and her highest chart position there to date) and the U.S. Billboard Chart, and also topped the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

“Rooms on Fire” was performed sporadically at Nicks’ live concerts up until New Year’s Eve of 1999, though has yet to be played live again.

In a 1989 interview, Nicks gave personal insight as to the meaning of “Rooms on Fire”:

“Rooms on Fire is about a girl who goes through a life like I have gone through, where she finally accepts the idea that there never will be those other things in her life. She will never be married, she will never have children, she will never do those [that] part of life.”

Stevie Nicks – Stand Back (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th May 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

“Stand Back” is a song by Stevie Nicks from her 1983 album The Wild Heart. It was released as the first single for the album on May 19, 1983, and went to number five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the U.S. Top Rock Tracks chart in August of that year. It was a major success, and still receives substantial airplay to this day.

The song has been a staple in Nicks’ live shows since its pre-album debut at the US Festival in May 1983, and it has also been included in Fleetwood Mac tour setlists since 1987.

The main intro of the song features an Oberheim OB-Xa synthesizer. The synth-bass is played on a Roland Jupiter 8. On the Rock A Little tour, the Oberheim is replaced with a Yamaha DX7. There were two mixes prepared for the song; the generally more well known Album Version (4:47) and the edited Single Version (4:18). Differences between the two are somewhat subtle, but the Single Mix tends to have more of a “collapsed” or “mono” sound to it and the electronic drum programs are mixed, rather dry and flattened, especially in the song’s intro bars; whereas the drum tracks on the Album mix are accentuated by a generous amount of reverb effect and harder compression. Acoustic drums were given a more backseat role on Stand Back. There is a further ‘polished’ version of the track, with crisper percussion and louder foreground synth, featured on Nicks’ 1991 best of compilation Timespace, remixed by Chris Lord-Alge, and running at 4:59.

Nicks has often told the story of how she wrote the song. She wrote it shortly after she was married to Kim Anderson. The newlyweds were driving up to San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara when Prince’s song “Little Red Corvette” came on the radio. Nicks started humming along to the melody, especially inspired by the lush synthesizers of the song, and “Stand Back” was born. They stopped and got a tape recorder and she recorded the demo in the honeymoon suite that night. Later, when Nicks went into the studio to record the song, she called Prince and told him the story of how she wrote the song to his melody. He came to the studio that night and played synthesizers on it, although his contribution is uncredited on the album. Then, she says, “he just got up and left as if the whole thing happened in a dream.” Prince is occasionally listed as the song’s co-writer, especially on mainland European releases.

“Stand Back” never really receieved an official extended remix however several remix services did remix the track in 1986. Including Prime Cuts and Discotech. The song was also later remixed and released again as a single on August 28, 2007 to promote the compilation album Crystal Visions – The Very Best of Stevie Nicks.
