Elektra/Asylum CD Reissue Notes:
Lindsey Buckingham was born in 1949, and raised in the San Francisco suburb of Palo Alto. Taking up guitar at an early age, he was influenced by The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley. During a time Martin Mull has referred to as "the great folk scare of the '60s," Lindsey became a fan of The Kingston Trio, Ian and Sylvia and others, which prompted him to learn banjo and develop a more complex guitar technique. In the late '60s, he and vocalist Stevie Nicks first met, as members (he played bass) of the Bay area band Fritz.
After Fritz went on the fritz, Buckingham and Nicks remained together, recording an album for Polydor Records. It was the producer of that album, Keith Olsen, who introduced Buckingham and Nicks to Mick Fleetwood. The drummer invited them - virtual unknowns at the time - to join Fleetwood Mac.
Lindsey's first album with the group, Fleetwood Mac, included such hit singles as "Over My Head," "Rhiannon," and "Say That You Love Me," and quickly became the group's best-selling album to date. It was followed by Rumours, with singles including Lindsey's composition "Go Your Own Way," "Dreams" and "Don't Stop," an album that became one of the best-selling long-players ever released.
More and more, Lindsey's singing, songwriting and guitar playing became prominent in Fleetwood Mac, and it was his consciousness that helped reshape the group's musical direction into what it is today. Large portions of the band's epic, ambitious Tusk album are virtually solo Buckingham numbers, and his participation and growth within the band was one of the most prominent distinctions of Fleetwood Mac Live.
In addition to his activities with Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey co-produced Walter Egan's 1977 Fundamental Roll and 1978's Not Shy, and Kingston Trio alumnus John Stewart's 1979 Bombs Away, Dream Babies (featuring the hit single "Gold").
Law and Order is Lindsey's first solo album in the absolute sense, as he played practically all of the instruments and did all of the singing, except for two harmony parts, by himself. Recorded in the summer and winter of 1981, it features the hit single "Trouble."
