Fleetwood Mac: Silver Springs

By Larry Flick
Billboard
August 2, 1997

* FLEETWOOD MAC Silver Springs (no timing listed)

PRODUCERS: Lindsey Buckingham, Elliot Schneider WRITER: S. Nicks

PUBLISHERS: Barbara Nicks/Wixen, BMI Reprise 8900 (c/o Warner Bros.) (CD promo) How appropriate that this nearly lost treasure from the Rumours sessions is chosen as the lead single from “The Dance,” an MTV Unplugged collection that reunites the Mac after umpteen years. Stevie Nicks is at her glorious, quirky best here, giving her words a poignant, worldly vibe. In the age of Alanis, Tori, and Courtney, lines like “you can be my silver springs. . . you can be color splashes” now sound a tad more fluffy than mystical. But that’s quite all right. Wrap yourself in this wonderfully executed tune like a warm and comfy security blanket.
