FLEETWOOD MAC Live in Boston Warner Vision***

This could be more accurately titled Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks Live in Concert. Since Christine McVie stopped touring with the band, the divorce 'n' drugs group with the tangled musical history have continued as a quartet and are none the less effective. Culled from two nights of their US tour last year, the band bravely focus on material from their not-that-bad-at-all last album, Say You Will. Nicks can still belt them out in that strangely fractured girly vocal of hers, while Buckingham knows (just about though) when to pull the plug on his "look at me" guitar solos. And not since Watts/Wyman has there been (for this genre of music) a better live rhythm section than John McVie and Mick Fleetwood - although points have to be deducted for a thoroughly unnecessary drum solo towards the end. Highlights include Nicks giving it socks on Rhiannon and Stand Back, and there are some judicious pickings from their back catalogue
. Pity there isn't more from their much misunderstood Tusk album. Brian Boyd
