Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. pressing of Buckingham Nicks by Buckingham Nicks, featuring Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.
This is the 1981 second issue with the non-gatefold cover.
About this copy: This copy of Buckingham Nicks is a 1981 U.S. pressing on the Polydor label of an album that was originally released in 1973.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact except for a very tiny “bald spot” at the upper left hand corner.
Unlike many copies, this one does not have any cutout marks – no saw marks, cut corners, or drill holes.
A nice copy of a rare Fleetwood Mac-related LP and a very difficult album to find sealed.
Background: Released in 1973, Buckingham Nicks is the only album by Buckingham Nicks, a group that consisted of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, who later became famous as members of Fleetwood Mac.
Before joining Fleetwood Mac in 1975, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham had tried several times, without success, to make it in the music business. They were initially in a band called Fritz that released just one single, and as luck would have it, that single was mispressed with the name of the wrong artist on the label. After that, they tried to make it as a duo, and they released a couple of singles and one album for Polydor Records in 1973, titled Buckingham Nicks.
The album, which did not chart, sold poorly and was quickly deleted. To this day, the Buckingham Nicks LP has never been released on compact disc, though a reissue has reportedly been “in the works” for a number of years now.
While it will be hard to find, this lone album cut by a young and ambitious (and still romantically attached) Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham a short two years before joining Fleetwood Mac is well worth digging out for your turntable. …Considering what the duo was to later accomplish, Buckingham Nicks is an engaging listen and served as a proving ground of sorts for both artists’ songwriting chops and for Buckingham’s skills as an emerging studio craftsman.
