Fleetwood Mac: Mirage

Fleetwood Mac: Mirage


Fleetwood Mac’s streak of consecutive multi-platinum albums began in the seventies and continued in 1982 with Mirage, the follow-up to the band’s 1979 double-album, Tusk. During the summer of 1982, Mirage topped the album chart and added to the band’s already impressive canon of hits with Hold Me, Love In Store and Gypsy.

Following last year’s deluxe edition of Tusk, Fleetwood Mac continues chronologically with the Deluxe Edition of Mirage. Available on June 24, this new edition expands on the original album with newly remastered sound, a selection of rare and unreleased recordings, as well as the stories and pictures behind the album.

Three formats available:

  • Deluxe: Three CDs, DVD and LP. Original album remastered, plus b-sides and rarities; the original album on LP; live performances; and a 5.1 mix on DVD.
  • Expanded: Two CDs. Original album remastered, plus a disc of b-sides and rarities.
  • Remastered: Original album remastered.

Digital versions of the Deluxe and Remastered formats will also be available.


Mirage topped the U.S. Album Chart for five weeks in '82. Along with instantly recognizable smash hits like Hold Me and Gypsy, Mirage also features great album tracks like Oh Diane, a Top Ten hit in the UK, and Straight Back, a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Rock Chart.

The new deluxe and expanded editions of Mirage both include a second disc that has 19 tracks dedicated entirely to outtakes and rarities. Among the unreleased gems are early versions of several album tracks – Empire State and Book Of Love – along with outtakes for songs that didn’t make it to the album: If You Were My Love and Smile At You. There is also an unreleased cover of the Fats Domino classic Blue Monday as well as the rare, extended mix for Gypsy that was used in the music video.

Exclusive to the deluxe edition of Mirage is a third disc that has more than a dozen live performances recorded in Los Angeles during Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 U.S. tour. Along with early hits – You Make Loving Fun and The Chain – the collection includes performances of Mirage standouts like Love In Store, Eyes Of The World and Gypsy. 

The DVD-Audio disc contains both the 5.1 Surround and 24/96 Stereo Audio mixes of the original album. The set also includes a vinyl copy of Mirage.
