3CD/5.1 Surround Mix/LP Set Features Newly Remastered Sound, Rare And Unreleased Recordings, And More

2-CD Expanded Edition Also Available

Both Versions Set For Release On September 23rd From Warner Bros. Records

LOS ANGELES – Fleetwood Mac’s streak of five consecutive multi-platinum albums began in the Seventies and continued in 1982 with Mirage, the follow-up to the band’s 1979 double-album, Tusk. During the summer of 1982, Mirage topped the album chart and added to the band’s already impressive canon of hits with “Hold Me,” “Love In Store” and “Gypsy.”

Following last year’s deluxe edition of Tusk, Fleetwood Mac continues chronologically with the deluxe edition of MIRAGE. Available on July 29, this new edition expands on the original album with newly remastered sound, a selection of rare and unreleased recordings, as well as the stories and pictures behind the album. Three formats available:

- Deluxe: Three CDs, DVD and LP. Original album remastered, plus b-sides and rarities; the original album on LP; live performances; and a 5.1 mix on DVD. $99.98.

- Expanded: Two CDs. Original album remastered, plus a disc of b-sides and rarities. $13.98.

- Remastered: Original album remastered. $11.98.

Digital version will also be available.

In 1982 Fleetwood Mac topped the U.S. Album Chart for five weeks with MIRAGE. Along with instantly recognizable smash hits like “Hold Me” and “Gypsy,” MIRAGE also features great album tracks like “Oh Diane,” a Top Ten hit in the UK, and “Straight Back,” a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Rock Chart.

The new deluxe and expanded editions of MIRAGE both include a second disc that has 19 tracks dedicated entirely to outtakes and rarities. Among the unreleased gems are early versions of several album tracks – “Empire State” and “Book Of Love” – along with outtakes for songs that didn’t make it to the album: “If You Were My Love” and “Smile At You.” There is also an unreleased cover of the Fats Domino classic “Blue Monday,” as well as the rare, extended mix for “Gypsy” that was used in the music video.

Exclusive to the deluxe edition of MIRAGE is a third disc that has more than a dozen live performances recorded in Los Angeles during Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 U.S. tour. Along with early hits – “You Make Loving Fun” and “The Chain” – the collection includes performances of MIRAGE standouts like “Love In Store,” “Eyes Of The World” and “Gypsy.”

The DVD-Audio disc contains both the 5.1 Surround and 24/96 Stereo Audio mixes of the original album. The set also includes a vinyl copy of MIRAGE.

I'm most excited about this because of the second disc that features the demos and outtakes. The already released alternate take of "Hold Me" is awesome; it's fun to play it before the official version to see how the song evolved. We're also finally getting official outtakes of Stevie's "Smile At You" and "If You Were My Love," one of which should have been on this record to begin with. As for the live album, I'm not all that upset that it's only 13 tracks; I would rather have the full concert live on DVD but there's clearly a reason we're not getting the live concert DVDs with these sets. A licensing issue maybe? Who knows? I'm also very much looking forward to the DVD-A containing the 5.1 surround mix; the 5.1 mix of Tusk is amazing I can't wait for this one.

Mike- Should we assume that the live disc will be remastered or have a crisp new sound too? It doesn't explicitly say that the live disc is remastered. The live disc for the Tusk re-issue sounds great! I wish they would release additional performances from different nights of the tour. It amazed me how different the newly released live Tusk Tour performances were SUPERIOR to the ones released on the original FM Live album.

I would assume the live disc will have the same cleaned up sound as the Deluxe Tusk live disc, but I would not expect it to be digitally remastered as it does not specifically say that it is.

I really hope we will get the angry version of Smile At You... a bit of a pity that Straight Back ist not on the demo CD...

I also love the "hold me" early version. Does anyone know which song "put a candle in the window" is? Can't wait for the cds.

i am really disappointed in this re-release because the dvd does not contain the music videos for "hold me" and "gypsy". those were important music videos in mtv's formative years and they were really mini-movie masterpieces for the time. you'd think that they producers or the record company would have included those videos on the dvd... dvds holds over three hours of data on it - it wasn't as if it couldn't fit...
