      Mirage was released in 1982 and proved to be, undoubtedly, the weakest album of the Buckingham/Nicks era. In the previous year Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood had all released solo albums and I think its fair to say that some of Stevie and Lindsey's songs were probably leftovers from their own albums. Inspite of this the album does contain some highlights, Stevie's Gypsy is particularly lovely. She wrote this song for her best friend Robin, who was dying of leukemia at the time of the album's release. Robin died the same year, three days after giving birth to a son, lines like "I still see your bright eyes" are sad and touching knowing the story behind the song. Stevie went on to marry her husband a couple of months later, but that's another story... Other gems include Lindsey's 50's throwback Oh Diane, (which was written about Princess Diana, he always did have a soft spot for blonds!) and Christine McVie's Hold Me and Wish You Were Here. The latter track was written for Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys (the good-looking one!) who Christine had been living with a couple of years before. He died in a drowning accident the following year. Mirage isn't the greatest album of all time, but it does have enough good tracks to keep you interested. My advice is to start with Rumours and Tusk if you want to get a fair idea what this band is capable of.
