Christine McVie “Christine McVie”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#215 in the Series) is the self-titled release from Christine McVie.

Christine McVie was released in 1984.  It was her first album since her Christine Perfect album, which  was released in 1970.

I always loved her contributions to Fleetwood Mac. I’d have no interest in seeing them now and watching Stevie Nicks sing Christine’s songs. I know Stevie has a ton of fans, but give me Ms. McVie anytime.

This album contained two hits.  ‘Got Ahold on Me’ and ‘Love Will Show us How.’ Got a Hold on Me’ peaked at #10 while ‘Love Will Show us How’ reached #30. You can listen to both songs below.

The Christine McVie album peaked at #26. It was produced by Russ Titelman.

Guest appearances here included Eric Clapton and Stevie Winwood.
