Big love - Fleetwood Mac

'Big love' was written by Lindsey Buckingham, and was originally going to be part of his third solo album which he began working on in 1985, but the project became a Fleetwood Mac album instead. Since Buckingham left Fleetwood Mac in 1987 (shortly after the album 'Tango in the night' was released), the band never performed 'Big love' live until his return in 1997. Meanwhile, the single reached number 9 in the UK singles chart and number 4 in the Dutch Top 40.

Though many assumed the female 'ahh' in this track to be Stevie Nicks, it was actually Lindsey Buckingham performing both, created by way of his voice being sampled and altered in the studio to mimic that of a woman.

My collection: 7" single no. 513
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, 1987
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Big love' / 'You and I, part I'
