Fleetwood Mac_Deluxe+Product+ShotFleetwood Mac has just revealed the full track listing for the forthcoming reissue of their Grammy-nominated 1979 album Tusk – and let’s just say, it looks pretty fantastic. On December 4th, versions will be available for casual listeners and completists alike, via Rhino Entertainment: a five-CD deluxe edition, three-CD expanded edition and a single disc of the newly remastered original two-record set.

Following the phenomenal success of 1977’s Rumours, the band took a more experimental approach with their 12th record, Tusk, introducing sparser arrangements as well as punk rock and new wave production influences. It was also the most expensive rock album made up to that point, costing over a million dollars to record – a fact pointed out often in the 1979 press. The album yielded two Top 10 hits: the ambitious title track (featuring the University of Southern California marching band) and “Sara” plus a third single, “Think About Me.”

And while Fleetwood Mac has had multiple lineups, Tusk featured the band at their most well known: Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

The deluxe reissue offers no shortage of goodies for your listening pleasure. In addition to the original album, fans can enjoy an alternate version of the record, featuring unreleased session outtakes, singles, demos and remixes. There will also be two full discs of unreleased performances from the band’s 1979 tour, with live versions of favorites like “Landslide” and “You Make Loving Fun” culled from concerts in London, Tucson and St. Louis. Extended liner notes showcase brand new interviews with all of the band members.

If you’re looking for something a bit more streamlined, the three-disc expanded version offers up everything but the two live discs. All three versions are available for pre-order (see below).

Meanwhile, the members of Fleetwood Mac continue their trek around the globe as part of the acclaimed “On with the Show” world tour. Tickets are still available for concerts in Australia and New Zealand.
