NEW on CD: Real Gone Music Reissues Mick Fleetwood's '83 Album "I'm Not Me"

Never Before on CD
Real Gone Music Re-issues Mick Fleetwood's 1983 Zoo Album "I'm Not Me" May 22, 2012

Though I'm Not Me, the 1983 album by Mick Fleetwood's Zoo is commonly thought of as a Mick Fleetwood solo record, it really was the product of a band, and a helluva band at that. Aside from the drummer — who lays down the primal, bedrock rhythms for which he is famous — the denizens of this Zoo include Billy Burnette and Steve Ross on guitar and vocals, session bass player supreme Roger Hawkins and, on background vocals, none other than Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham (the band got its start backing Buckingham on a Saturday Night Live appearance). Though produced by Richard Dashut, producer of Rumors and Tusk, I'm Not Me was almost the anti-Tusk, a low-key affair showcasing the considerable singing and songwriting talents of Burnette, Ross and Hawkins. Given the talent assembled and the fact that it scored a hit in "I Want You Back," it's odd that this engaging, infectious album has never been out on CD. The Real Gone reissue includes notes by Scott Schinder that place I’m Not Me in its proper Fleetwood and ‘Mac context.

• Features a Supergroup of Mick Fleetwood, Billy Burnette, Steve Ross, Roger Hawkins, Christine McVie & Lindsey Buckingham.
• Remastered by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios, NYC.
• New Liner Notes by Scott Schinder.
