CD Reissue Notes:

LP Originally Mastered at Sterling Sound, New York

The music on this Compact Digital Disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to preserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of itís high resolution, however, the Compact Disc can reveal limitations of the source tape.

The Compact Disc Digital Audio System offers the best possible sound reproduction - on a small, convenient disc. Its remarkable performance is the result of a unique combination of digital storage and laser optics.

For best results, you should apply the same care in storing and handling the Compact Disc as you would with conventional records. No cleaning is necessary if the Compact Disc is always held by its edgesand is replaced in its case directly after playing. If the Compact Disc becomes soiled by fingerprints, dust or dirt, it can be wiped (always in a straight line, from center to edge) with a clean and lint-free, soft, dry cloth. Never use a solvent or abrasive cleaner to clean the disc. If you follow these suggestions, the Compact Disc will provide a lifetime of pure listening enjoyment.

3/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.0
Tasteful, stately, occasionally poppy album with one surefit hit single...
Review written by Jon the Moonspinner, February 22nd, 2010

Christine McVie deserved to have a hit song to call her own, and achieved that with "Got a Hold On Me", which sounded reassuring and lovely on AM radio in the mid-1980s. The self-titled album which followed didn't include anything else quite so surefire, though the writing is almost always smooth and the playing is faultless. You won't find a burning intensity churning under these tracks, they're pleasant confections and that's all they need to be. The effort was described by McVie herself as "quite perky, really", so anyone hoping for the smoldering equivalent to "Brown Eyes"...abandon those ideas.

4/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.0
An unnoticed gem from a legendary songwriter...
Review written by Ali Filipowicz (dr.flip@erols.com), August 21st, 2004

Have you ever realized that it was Christine McVie who has written the bulk of Fleetwood Mac's hits? Bet you didn't. Her 1984 release should have equaled her success with the Mac. It is a solid collection of songs that are great for any mood. The album features her superb, but not over the top, keyboarding and fine performances from her band and guesting musicians. "Got A Hold On Me" was a modest hit for her but so many other songs were also deserving. Hopefully the renewed interest in the music and members of Fleetwood Mac will eventually make this album the success it should've been so long ago.

    McVie's sultry warmth as a vocalist and sturdy pop/rock instincts have long been integral to Fleetwood Mac's charm, but while this new solo set (her first in 15 years) inevitably shares that band's current melodic thrust, the choice of material and musicians opens up a persuasive platform: in addition to the Mac-inflected current single, "Got A Hold On Me," the songstress flexes her r&b muscle on "One In A Million," one of several enticing collaborations with Steve Winwood, simmers midtempo blues rock and delivers several sweetly moody ballads. Lindsey Buckingham, Eric Clapton and Mick Fleetwood also contribute, but McVie's low-keyed presence still rightly dominates in a set that should be welcomed by mainstream pop, adult contemporary and AOR.
