Welcome to this week’s Release Round-Up!
Fleetwood Mac, Fleetwood Mac [Various Formats] (Reprise/Rhino)
The 1975 debut album by the Fleetwood Mac line-up of Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood arrives in a variety of deluxe formats, including a 3CD/DVD/LP box with the remastered album on CD and vinyl, bonus singles, previously unreleased studio outtakes and a live concert recording, and a DVD with high-resolution stereo and surround mixes.
Todd Rundgren, Something/Anything and A Wizard, A True Star Hybrid Stereo SACDs (Analog Spark)
Analog Spark has added luster to singer/songwriter/sonic auteur Todd Rundgren’s third and fourth classic studio albums with these new hybrid stereo SACD editions (playable on all CD players). Both titles are packaged in mini-LP replica jackets with gatefolds. These two albums – each radical in its own way – have never sounded better.
