Re-Imagining Fleetwood Mac - Stevie Nicks Edition

One of my favorite bands of all time is Fleetwood Mac.  What makes The Mac so amazing isn't one particular member.  The band is a true sum of its parts.  They are the gold standard when it comes to the team effort approach to their songs, albums and live shows.  Though they are a chameleon of a band who has evolved and changed over time, they have had their share of chaotic times.  But difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations.  When the group is in sync with each other, there is no one better. But what if that wasn't true?  What if Fleetwood Mac only had one singer?  The Mac has been known since their early beginnings as a band who has shared vocal duties.  But just for fun...what if that wasn't true?  What if they only had one singer?  What would an album by Fleetwood Mac sound like?  Over the next three days, I want to look at three different versions of The Mac...each one featuring a different singer.  What would an album sound like if only Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie or Lindsey Buckingham were the singer?  I am not advocating this should be the case...but what if? Up first, here is the Stevie Nicks version of Fleetwood Mac.  I have kept the album to a tight 11 songs, trying to find the best songs that cohesively fit together.  It's an interesting experiment and I'd love to know your thoughts.
