Fleetwood Mac [1977.08.25] Sin City 77 Remastered [FM]



Fleetwood Mac
'Sin City 77' (Remastered)
Aladin Center For The Performing Arts
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Thursday August 25th, 1977


Excellent FM Broadcast Recording
Encoded: 320 Kbps MP3

This is in my opinion one of the finest Fleetwood Mac shows ever put on tape. Not only are you getting the group in its prime while riding high on the "Rumours" tour, you are getting a heartfelt, genuine performance as well. The entire group is at peak, with Stevie Nicks as a standout. She has never sounded better. She catapoults both "Dreams" and particularly "Rhiannon" into the stars. The girl is on fire, and it shows.

Although labeled as "Mega-rare", this double boot LP along with the Jethro Tull title "A Sack Full Of Trousersnakes" sold out very quickly and was repressed several times. This is taken from a nearly mint first edition on Dragonfly Records. But even if you have this album, your humble seeder believes you have never heard it properly. All copies of this show ran just fast enough to make the performance sound a little sick. I've corrected the speed to make the the album pitch properly. Even though this was just by a small amount, it makes a huge difference in the sound quality. -Original

This album is labeled "entire concert". Well, maybe it is and maybe it isn't. I have heard that "Monday Morning" may in fact have been played and isn't on this two-record set.
