I never really liked this song much....till I sang it and it really stuck. I recently had to quit 2 bands I was in...one being a Fleetwood Mac Tribute, where I was Stevie. Stevie...Show More

Crystal. I know that you would look good on TV. If you look at some of the contestants on Idol, The Voice etc. A lot of them are not overwhelmingly cover model material. With a voice as beautiful as yours, you could sing anything. Be your own artist! I am a HUGE Fleetwood Mac fan. I saw them in concert at the University of Arizona Stadium, Tucson, AZ on 27 Aug, 1977. They held the 67,000 fans spellbound with a little help from Kenny Loggins, The Marshall Tucker Band and a local band called Arizona. I remember the local band because they employed a Moog Synthesizer and it was the first one I ever saw! Stevie had lost her Dad to heart disease and she was doing a benefit concert for the American Heart Association. I agree with Jerry. Your tone, inflection, diction and emoting the lyrics, wonderfully, places you miles ahead of a ton of others. I thoroughly enjoyed your rendition of this FM classic! YOU ROCK!!!! .......:-) Keith

You sound stunning on this. If I wasn't told, I's swear you were Stevie. Beautiful.

Know of Fleetwood Mac,, didn't listen to them much, had too many other that grabbed my ears. I have found that singing a song, reading the lyrics, bring to light, a better understanding. Another marvelous vocal, by you.

Before we started learning their material, I did not know a lot of them either. But once I started listening, and then trying to play them....it made me realize what a truly great and talented band they were. They really grew on me!

Wow... I know of one one other person who could sing along with Stevie Nicks and sound just about like her. You've done an absolutely OUT-FLIPPIN'-STANDING sing of this!!!

Thank you so much for your comment, especially saying I sound like her. I did a lot of work and listening to really try my hardest to emulate her as much as I could. Its good to know the hard work paid off :) I appreciate you listening!

Never was a Stevie Nicks fan because her songs tend to have a range of only 5 or six notes. But you on the other hand did this beautifully! I could listen to you all day. Getting to be a big fan!!

Ya, her songs are not exactly the most challenging, but after singing them, and doing some research, it definitely has given me a new appreciation for the band, and how incredibly talented they were, and all that they went through as a band. Thank you so much for listening :)

This is one of the few over 4 minute songs I adore..( I think there's even a 7 min version?) and I knew you'd give it justice.. I liked how you worked some of the end phrases singing up instead of down.( and it was just like, a great dark wing') Lovelier than lovely

Thanks for the listen. I do believe the very original song was 9 verses and 16 minutes long LOL. So glad they shortened it up!
