During her years with Fleetwood Mac, Christine McVie only recorded one album. It was released in 1984, after Mirage had run its course and the band was taking an extended break. Given its release date, it's not surprising that Christine McVie sounds like it could have been recorded during the Mirage sessions -- it's a collection of soft rock/pop and ballads that are pleasantly melodic and ingratiating.

    Her name was "Perfect" (not Love) before it was McVie

    She recorded a solo album between her time with chicken Shack and Fleetwood Mac and, while she's not crazy about it (from what I understand), it's worth seeking out.

    B&N doesn't carry it but it's available on vinyl in the kinds of shops that carry that sort of thing.

    A Lovely Soothing CD.

    WHEN ROBERT WELCH WAS WITH FLEETWOOD MAC,CHRISTINE MCVIE HAD ONE SONG ALONE EACH NIGHT THE BAND PERFORMED!IT WAS THE UNFORGETTABLE,"FOR YOU". THIS IS HER SECOND SOLO ENDEVOUR. TRY TO GET CHRISTINE LOVE. HER NAME PRIOR TO MARRYING JOHN MCVIE.WITH A STEINWAY GRAND, A SIMPLE RED ROSE IN A VASE AND THE LIGHTS ON MS.MCVIE HER FORMER HUSBAND AND THEIR BANDMATE MICK FLEETWOOD FELL INTO EACH OTHER'S ARMS AND CRIED. THAT IS HOW MOVING CHRISTINE MCVIE CAN BE IF GIVEN OPPROTUNITY. RUN FOR THIS ONE.FIND CHRISTINE LOVE. NEITHER DISAPPOINTS!
