Fleetwood Mac Tusk (1979)With the ‘Mac hangover still hanging thick in the southern air, it’s time for the lush reissue of 1979 epic Tusk.

Once the most expensive album ever made, this was their indulgent response to Rumours, the album which cemented the quintet’s status as titans of melodic West Coast rock.

While selling only fractionally as well, and marked by Lindsay Buckingham’s obsessive and sometimes inspired attention to sonic detail, this two-disc deluxe edition features five versions of the immaculate title track, tracking the evolution of one of their most intriguing pieces.

Fleetwood Mac. Tusk: Deluxe Edition. Warner Music.

Three and a half stars (out of five)

Single download: Tusk (April 6, 1979 USC Version)
For those who like: ’70s excess
