Lindsey Buckingham played his
first-ever solo shows on Dec. 12 and 13, 1992, at two semi-secret gigs
at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. His first solo tour was
coming up and these were basically two warm-up shows. They weren't
allowed to advertise his name, so the ads just said "special guest"
(although Lindsey did do one interview in the Orange County Register).
The venue was packed with fans and also very heavy on Warner Bros
Records executives. Very small stage, and Lindsey had three or four
guitarists besides himself. Show was very much like you'll hear here
-- great versions of solo stuff, great Mac tunes. It wasn't till
after the show that a friend at the club told me Westwood One had
taped it for broadcast. That broadcast has been out on bootleg for
quite a while. This recording is pre-mixdown. My friend got her
friend at Westwood One to give her a copy of the show days after it
happened. She was given a cassette taken straight off the rough master
-- rough edits between songs, etc. This cassette was then mastered
straight to CDR, getting rid of the rough edits and making it flow.
There are good versions of this show out there, but I don't think they
get any better than this one. There were snippets of two instrumentals
on the tape, but just a few seconds of each, these are not included
here. Although the date on the art says Dec. 12, both nights were
taped and the eventual broadcast was a combo of both. I have no idea
which songs come from which night on this.

This set includes the only known
live recording of the song 'Wrong' which was not broadcast on the
eventual Westwood One Radio or on the other bootleg version that
exists of this show.
