Our featured album this week on Blue Panda Radio is “Tango in the Night”, the fourteenth studio album by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac.
The album was first released on 13 April 1987. As a result of Lindsey Buckingham’s departure later that year, it is the fifth and final studio album from the band’s most successful line-up of Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Stevie Nicks, though Christine McVie would make guest appearances on the band’s 2003 album, Say You Will. This line-up was not seen again until 1997’s live album The Dance.
‘Tango in the Night’ began as one of Buckingham’s solo projects, but in 1985, the production had morphed into Fleetwood Mac’s next record and has since sold over 15 million copies worldwide. Tango in the Night is the band’s second-biggest-selling studio album after the phenomenally successful Rumours, which was released ten years earlier.
Dave Marley will be playing 5 tracks from the album this week on Blue Panda Radio, Monday through Friday, on Marley in the Morning
