45″ Friday: “Ricky” by Fleetwood Mac

Posted on the 30 December 2011 by Thewildheart @wildheartrocks

In the music world, there are “jam bands.” Fleetwood Mac used to be one of these, albeit a british blues band. The Mac daddy45″ Friday: “Ricky” by Fleetwood Mac and friends return to this with the b-side to the 1987 smash hit Little Lies entitled Ricky. However this time that semi-jamlike sound gets a nice 80′s production makeover.

Ricky is a Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham-penned track. It doesn’t have much as far as lyrics go, but it shows off the rest of the band’s musicianship, especially the licks from bass player John McVie, whose bass playing serves as the main melody of the entire song. McVie shines well on this track.
