Finally some of the Bob Welsh era FM is avalable on itunes.
One of the Great Albums of the Era
This is definitely a pop/rock album that set a standard for the genre, dominated by the songwriting and guitar work of Danny Kirwan who also sings on a few numbers with that soft, melancholy voice. Moody, creative and tasteful guitar playing abounds, with interplay between Kirwan and Bob Welch that remains as rich and satisfying today as it was when this album was first issued, though since then the sounds have been somewhat copied and transformed by other artists. Several great tracks make this a must-have album, though not all the songs are of equal value. The title song, “Child of Mine,” “Spare Me a Little of Your Love,” “Dust” and “Sunny Side of Heaven” are all lovely rockers with grace and heart, distinctive and beautifully performed. Christine McVie sings her best when she takes the lead, but it’s really Kirwan who is most responsible for this enduring classic.
One of my Top 5 Albums of All Time
So glad to have it on iTunes. Great music for reflection and regeneration for me. “Spare Me a Little of Your Love” was my introduction to Christine McVie and it’s still one of my favorites of hers.
My second favorite FM album behind future games!
Some great tunes on here, and not just deep cuts. The Mac start to transition from blues band to pop/rock here with Sentimental Lady and I think one of Christine's best , Spare me a Little ! Also love Ghost and Title track is an awesome rocker!
iTunes, Please add Kiln House and Future Games to your selection. I'll need songs from those albums for my Danny Kirwan playlist.
