Rhino records will reissue Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 album Mirage. The remastered effort features rare and unreleased recordings and boasts a 5.1 surround sound mix.
The deluxe set, available for pre-order here, is features three CDs, a DVD and a vinyl pressing of the original album. There is also a 2-CD collection, which includes 19 rarities and b-sides, as well as live performances. A 1-CD version of the remastered album will also be available. The reissue of Mirage will be released on July 29.
Mirage is the follow-up to the band’s 1979 double album Tusk and features the hits “Hold Me,” “Love in Store” and “Gypsy.” The effort continued the band’s streak of five straight multi-platinum albums.
Disc two of the deluxe set contains songs that did not make the original 1982 album including “If You Were My Love” and “Smile at You.” There is also an unreleased cover of the Fats Domino classic “Blue Monday” and the extended mix of “Gypsy,” which was used in the iconic music video.
The third disc contains a dozen live songs recorded in Los Angeles during Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 tour. It features renditions of “You Make Loving Fun,” “The Chain,” “Love in Story,” “Eyes of the World” and more.
