Big for me all my life. I don't often get mushy about the past, but 70s AOR was pretty great and I have great memories of mom singing along to these in our Capri with a very small me in the passenger seat. Formative musical memory.

Magical voice, great writer (I believe both of these are hers), some life. RIP lady.

She was great, and a rock n roll survivor. I listened to the Bare Trees album so many times I lost count. Glad I got to see her live with Fleetwood Mac, too, several times. She, with Mick, was always the voice of reason in that band.

She was 79? I didn't realize she was that old.

The Billy Burnette and Rick Vito era of the band is sadly even more overlooked than the Bob Welch era of the band. But I argue that the Burnette/Vito era yielded one of the most beautiful ballads Christine ever made.


And yet, nobody recognizes "as long as you follow" as being such.

Rest in peace, Songbird.

I recorded a cover of that song way back in about 1989. Damn, she was my favorite voice in that band. I laid the guitar track (my only recording ever!), and I don't even remember the name of the girl who sang for it, but she did a nice version of Christine's vocal. RIP Singbird indeed. :cry:
