Science literacy is your vaccine against the charlatans of the world who would otherwise exploit your ignorance.

-If you want something done, then do it.
-Peer review is an asset.
-When you write a program don't be upset when someone else finds an error.
-An artist's retirement never warrants removal of his/her/their releases.
-If the voting system upsets you and/or you use the voting system to punish others then you joined Discogs with too large an ego.
-If a user makes some mistakes, it does not mean he or she is out to sabotage the site and all you've worked for.
-Be patient. You weren't so different back in the day.
-If you're selling a particular release, please add an image to the release page if one isn't already there. People need to know what they're buying.
-Protect the aluminum backing of your CDs. The protective polycarbonate layer is there for a reason.
-Keep in mind that a rare import to one is a common domestic to another.
-Shrinkwrapping an already opened release does not make it new nor does it make the release mint.
-To anyone who complains about a compromised jewel-case or keep-case... just stop.

As far back as I can remember my father had me listening to Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham, The Cars, and Linda Ronstadt. From there my passion for music flourished as my tastes in music fermented and expanded. I began listening obsessively in my free time and I would make free time so I could listen to more. I'm at the point now where I can't even drive for 2 minutes without listening to music. I've gone through countless CD players and MP3 players over the years, as I'm always sucking the life out of batteries.

I am also an obsessive collector of all music media, mostly CDs. The bulk of my collection is a hoard of CD's organized alphabetically by artist. In the span of each artist I have them organized chronologically by the date of the recording. I'm beginning to collect more DVDs, vinyl and cassettes, and I have a soft spot for splatter colored bootlegs.

A near-perfect collection of tracks from each of their 1990s lineups. Whoever put this compilation together obviously cared deeply for what potential critics would think. The quality has some variance because many different sources were used, but all ... See full review

It's good to see them performing Not That Funny and Farmer's Daughter. The video quality is rather distant and grainy at times but you can see the group performing and smiling while they do it.

I quite enjoy this release because it compiles performances from numerous shows in addition to featuring a few new studio-like live tracks. The Farmer's Daughter sounds like it belongs on the latter half of Tusk itself with an overall appeal not unlike ... See full review

Reportedly released with Osaka 1980 1st Night as a companion disc. Outside sources claim the two releases are of the same quality but in my opinion this release is superior.

Reportedly a companion release to Keep Passing Us By. The quality has been compared to its companion by other sources but my ears say this is of lesser quality than its companion.
posted a review of Fleetwood Mac - Boston Tusk. about 1 year ago
The audio is less muffled than that on The Angels Dream and the guitar solos taken off the rails by Buckingham are easier to distinguish from speaker feedback.
posted a review of Fleetwood Mac - Memphis Mirage. about 1 year ago
Of your typical soundboard quality; not the best but certainly not the worst quality in my collection. Missing from this release are recordings of Love In Store, Not That Funny, and I'm So Afraid, and perhaps a few more.
