Welcome back to Bootleg City! This week’s entry comes courtesy of our good friend Joe (of Illicit Noise) and it’s a good one. We’re talking Lindsey Buckingham in all his live, solo glory, and you don’t want to miss a single minute.

This was recorded in 1992, as Buckingham was touring behind his sadly underappreciated Out of the Cradle solo album, and finds him running the gamut between solo cuts and Fleetwood Mac classics. To my memory, the audio quality is outstanding, but my memory ain’t what it used to be (the files were also ripped at 128 kbps, unfortunately, but they’re still a hell of a lot better than nothing).

Anyway. Download, enjoy, and have a fantastic weekend. See you here next week!

UPDATE: By our pal Robert’s request (and on account of how it’s Friday, amen and hallelujah), here’s an extra helping of bootleggy goodness. I’m talking about Lindsey Buckingham’s much-anticipated, eventually scrapped solo album Gift of Screws.

Much of Screws, as you can see, was folded into the Fleetwood Mac reunion album Say You Will. Being a Buckingham/Christine McVie fan, and having little to no use for Stevie Nicks, I mostly very much prefer these versions to their officially released counterparts. But hey, judge for yourself. There’s some live stuff mixed in there too, but what are you going to do, complain?
