Legendary Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham will release his first solo acoustic live album, Lindsey Buckingham: One Man Show, tomorrow, November 13. But today, we're excited to be teaming up with Buckingham to premiere the second track on the album, a stirring rendition of "Bleed to Love Her," which first appeared on Fleetwood Mac's 1997 live album, The Dance.
The band, its label and its management also came up with the idea to release the three discs in succession rather than put them out all at once or as a set. ¡Uno! comes out September 25, ¡Dos! hits on November 13, and ¡Tré! will be released on January 15, 2013. It’s an unconventional move, but one that’s perhaps more attuned to the short-attention-span digital era.
Based on the Harmony Bobkat model, which was produced from 1963 to 1966, and was also branded by Airline, Supro, Kay and many others, the Bobkat is fun playing guitar that in its day was the “go to” model for students and pros. And the new Airline Bobkat, with a street price of less than $400 US is on target to hit that same market.
