During the summer of 1982, Fleetwood Mac's album 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: 3CDs, 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.
- Expanded: 2CDs. Original album remastered, plus a disc of b-sides and rarities.
- Remastered: Original album remastered.
Digital versions of the Deluxe and Remastered formats will also be available.
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.
