My obsession with “Alternate” Fleetwood Mac lp’s continues unabated. First the “Alternate” Tusk ... now “Alternate” Fleetwood Mac. RSD (bought new from Discog seller)

OMG! It’s simply superb! Real musicians, playing REAL instruments ... in a REAL analog Studio

Sound: A+
Music: A+
Three most important credits ...
1. Recoded at Sound City, Van Nuys, CA orig. analog tapes/tracks. Engineer Keith Olsen
2. Lacquers cut - by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Studios
3. Remastered by Dan Hersch D2 - superb work!

The packaging is crap ... the cover photo printing looks like a home copier 100th generation print ... EXCEPT for the nice black paper poly-lined inner sleeve. It’s obvious this lp is aimed at audiophiles (who don’t care about the packaging)

Lp: dead flat 180g, dead quiet

The engineering: pure voices are forward along with LB’s guitar AND drums. Most songs are stripped bare of orchestral overdubs ... and showcase just what a BRILLIANT collection of songs these are.

My favorite cuts:
Crystal: stripped bare, to just voice and guitar. Sounds fantastic.
I’m so Afraid: same thing, just the bare song no drowning organ background.

Some great alternate takes. Sound is absolutely outstanding except for the last track on Side 1, "Crystal". Lot's of distortion here. I thought it might have been my setup, but it was not. It may just be the quality of the recording is bad and there wasn't much else they could do with it. Anyone else have this issue on "Crystal"?

I cannot say anything original about this one, but I will say this is worth it to a fan as it sounds amazing from a dynamic recording to a nice pressing quality. Landslide and world turning alone is worth the coin. Plus my originals aged nicely or not don’t sound like this.
