Comments: Very nice audience/ALD matrix from Fleetwood Mac's reunion tour in 2003. The primary source used in this matrix is the ALD, and this features unusually good fidelity for an assistive listening recording -- the low-end is well-represented and clean, unlike most sources of this type. The audience source appears to have been used sparingly to fill in a little atmosphere in the recording.

I'm not enough of a Fleetwood Mac fan to comment on the performance, though I saw this tour a couple of times and enjoyed it. There are several songs from the album they were promoting at the time which didn't really grab me, but the older material sounded great with this lineup. Lindsey Buckingham was clearly the star of the show, literally throwing himself into every vocal and guitar solo, though everyone was in very good form considering the years that have passed.

This was mastered by John Tsalikes and "Mike" (a.k.a. "gottahaveit") and seeded on DIME in early 2005, about a year and a half after John's untimely death. This was downloaded heavily and dropped from the tracker quickly (3 months), so it's likely that many DIME members who would be interested didn't see this the first time around.
