Lindsey Buckingham was a key — arguably essential — part of the volatile mix that carried Fleetwood Mac to its highest peaks in the late '70s and early '80s, igniting the Rumours-era hits juggernaut with his versatile, florid guitar work and keen pop savvy. He's had a separate career too, from his pre-Mac folkie duo with Stevie Nicks to a recent series of solo albums, the latest of which is the elegant Seeds We Sow on his own Mind Kit label. Except for one song, the Elizabethanesque rocker "That's the Way That Love Goes," Seeds is an entirely one-man affair. Layering intimate, sometimes whispery vocals, intricate guitar work, and gorgeous melodies that drift, billow, and fold in on themselves like a cloud bank, Buckingham muses about diffident love, venal ambition, and karma, occasionally lashing out with raging rockers like "One Take." This solo performance is billed as "an intimate evening with," and advance reports suggest it'll be Buckingham presenting tunes from his solo career as well as Mac classics.
