Fleetwood Mac’s streak of five 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“. 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.
In 1982 Fleetwood Mac topped the U.S. Album Chart for five weeks with „Mirage“. 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 editions of „Mirage“ includes 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 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.”

Fleetwood Mac retreated from the insular strangeness of Tusk and returned to straightforward pop songcraft for Mirage. Boasting a glossy, friendly production that makes even the lesser numbers pleasant and ingratiating, Mirage nonetheless suffers from a lack of substance. Rumours had raw emotion to give it a core, and Tusk had Lindsey Buckingham's runaway ambition. For its part, Mirage sounds as if its sole goal is to sustain Fleetwood Mac's popularity, and while there may be a handful of terrific songs -- notably the hit singles "Gypsy," "Love in Store," and "Hold Me" -- it simply isn't as compelling as the group's previous three albums. --AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
