Offered for sale is a still sealed original Canadian pressing of Buckingham Nicks by Buckingham Nicks, featuring Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.
While this album was originally released in 1973 in the United States, it wasn’t released in Canada until 1975, after Buckingham and Nicks had joined Fleetwood Mac.
About this copy: This copy of Buckingham Nicks is an original 1975 pressing on the Quality label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears or holes. This album features a gatefold cover.
A gorgeous copy of a rare Fleetwood Mac-related LP.
Background: While the American copies of the Buckingham Nicks album aren’t terribly rare, the Canadian issue, which wasn’t released until 1975, is considerably harder to find.
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 released 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 sold poorly and was quickly deleted. To this day, the Buckingham Nicks LP has never been released on compact disc, though the project 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.
