Fleetwood Mac reissuing 1982 album Mirage

Warner Bros. Records gives the 1982 album the deluxe treatment on July 29

After previously reissuing its classic albums Rumours and Tusk as expanded, deluxe box sets, Fleetwood Mac will do the same with its 1982 studio effort, Mirage.

The remastered version of Mirage will be released July 29 in a number of configurations, including a deluxe five-disc edition featuring three-CDs, an audio DVD and a vinyl LP.

Mirage originally hit stores in June of ’82 and went on to top the Billboard 200 for five consecutive weeks. The album yielded three top-40 hits, “Hold Me,” “Gypsy” and “Love in Store,” which peaked at #4, #12 and #22, respectively, on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

The deluxe edition of Mirage features a remastered version of the original album; a CD of outtakes, rarities and alternate takes; a CD of live performances recorded in Los Angeles during Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 tour; a remastered vinyl edition of the record; and a DVD-Audio disc that includes 5.1 surround sound and high-fidelity stereo mixes of Mirage.

The outtakes disc features 19 tracks, including early versions of several songs on the album, a couple of tunes from the sessions that don’t appear on Mirage, an extended mix of “Gypsy” used for the song’s video, and a cover of Fats Domino’s “Blue Monday.”

The live CD boasts performances of a few Mirage tunes, including “Gypsy,” as well as such well-known Fleetwood Mac songs as “The Chain,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Rhiannon,” “Tusk” and “Go Your Own Way.”

The Mirage reissue also will be available as a two-CD Expanded Edition featuring the remastered original album remastered and the disc of outtakes and rarities, a single CD featuring just the remastered original disc, and a digital version of the record.
