...who left the band before Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks could make them pop superstars.
Hopefully I've done this great track some justice...
Here's a live version from 1987:
I made it a bit longer and more club friendly...
Next up is "Easy To Fall" by Bob Welch from his post Fleetwood Mac solo LP "French Kiss."
This LP has my favorite Bob Welch solo cut "Sentimental Lady":
Love that song....
However, I chose "Easy To Fall" because I felt like if I remixed it it would work on a dancefloor (I may do "Sentimental Lady" later, in the meantime you can find it as part of my 70's AM / FM tribute mix DJ4AM/FM Presents a ghostly 70's radio composite).
I gave it a major overhaul in arrangement, no disrespect, but I felt like the string parts were just to good not to exploit...word.
thanks and enjoy...
It's got a couple of my edits mixed in alongside Bjork, Portishead, D-Nice, Chi-Ali, The Wascals, Toni Tone Tony, Desmond Dekker, Group Home, T-Love and an edit by my homeboy Kev.

The concluding statement in the commercial for the polaroid SX 70 by Phillip Morrison manages to summarize the ideals that inform all the Eames' design work. It stresses an optimistic and humane take on modernism, in which technology is seen as the ultimate creative enterprise.
I find this attitude especially moving since it comes from a era reeling from the recent discovery of the destructive power of atomic weapons, and a technophobic skepticism of applied science could be so easily justified.
I'm definitely looking forward to visiting the Eames Office, and some of their buildings when I'm in LA.
