New Chuck Berry and Fleetwood Mac (Almost)

Lindsey Buckingham Christine McVie
Lindsey Buckingham Christine McVie

I have just added 4 new classic rock tracks into high rotation.

First, I have added 3 additional tracks from the long-awaited “almost” Fleetwood Mac album – which became a self-titled release from Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie. It features Mick Fleetwood and John McVie in the rhythm section, but with Stevie Nicks declining to join the project, I guess they didn’t feel it was right to call it a Fleetwood Mac album. Nevertheless, the album features some sparkling pop nuggets. Listen for the new tracks Carnival Begin, Red Sun and Gone Too Far. Read the review here.

Also, listen for a track from the late Chuck Berry‘s last album of original material. Planned before his unfortunate demise – the project shows why the man was one of the architects of rock n’ roll. Listen for the track Wonderful Woman. Read the review here.
