Rhino Records have announced they’ll reissue Fleetwood Mac's debut live album as a super deluxe edition later this year.

Fleetwood Mac Live was first released in late 1980, with the new 3CD and 2LP vinyl edition set to arrive on April 9 – and along with a remastered version of the original 18-track record, the new package will also include a 7-inch single featuring previously unreleased demos of Fireflies and One More Night.

In addition, Live will also include an hour’s worth of unreleased live music recorded between 1977 and 1982 – and the previously unavailable version of The Chain, recorded at Cleveland’s Richfield Coliseum in May 1980 can be listened to below.

The super deluxe edition will also come with a booklet, a full itinerary of the band’s Tusk tour, along with a history of the live album which has been written by author David Wild. 

Wild writes: “Then and now, Fleetwood Mac Live artfully marks a fascinating time period for a group that, in one form or another, has been on the global stage for more than half a century. It’s a wildly entertaining rock’n’roll circus in full swing under a big tent of the band’s own creation as they leave audiences dazzled in locales from Paris, France, to Passaic, New Jersey.”

Fleetwood Mac Live is now available to pre-order.
