    Tusk is the 12th album by the British/American rock band Fleetwood
    Mac. Released in 1979, it is considered experimental, primarily due
    to Lindsey Buckinghams sparser songwriting arrangements and the
    influence of punk rock and New Wave on his production techniques.
    Bassist John McVie has commented that the album sounds like the work
    of three solo artists (Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine
    McVie), whilst Mick Fleetwood later proclaimed that it is his
    favourite and the best Fleetwood Mac studio album created by the
    group. Costing over one million dollars to record (a fact widely
    noted in the 1979 press), it was the most expensive rock album made
    up to that point.Tusk peaked at #4 in the US and was certified
    double platinum for shipping two million copies.[5] It peaked at #1
    in the UK and achieved a Platinum award for shipments in excess of
    300,000 copies[6]. The album gave the group two US top-ten hit
    singles, with the Buckingham-penned track (US #8/UK #6), and the
    Stevie Nicks composition Sara (US #7/UK #37). Further releases from
    the album, Not That Funny (UK only single release), Think About Me
    and Sisters of the Moon were less successful; however, the latter
    two appear in their single versions on the 2002 compilation The Very
    Best of Fleetwood Mac. Sara was cut to 4½ minutes for both the
    single and the first CD release of the album, but the unedited
    version has since been restored on the 1988 Greatest Hits
    compilation and the 2004 reissue of Tusk as well as Fleetwood Macs
    2002 release of The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac. Original guitarist
    Peter Green also took part in the sessions for Tusk, but his playing
    on the Christine McVie track Brown Eyes is not credited on the
    album.[7]Though the album sold four million copies worldwide, in
    comparison to the huge sales of Rumours and the unprecedented
    recording expense, the bands record label deemed the project a
    failure, laying the blame squarely with Buckingham himself.[citation
    needed] Fleetwood, however, blames the albums relative failure on
    the RKO radio chain playing the album in its entirety prior to
    release, thus allowing mass home taping.[8] In addition, Tusk was a
    double album, with a high list price of $15.98.The band embarked on
    a huge 18-month tour to promote Tusk. They travelled extensively
    across the world, including the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Japan,
    France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
    In Germany they shared the bill with reggae superstar Bob Marley. It
    was on this world tour that the band recorded music for the
    Fleetwood Mac Live album, which was released at the end of 1980.
