Ken Caillat hints at possible Mirage reissue

On Saturday, Fleetwood Mac producer Ken Caillat (Rumours, Tusk, Mirage) raised fan hopes of a possible Mirage reissue when he posted on his Facebook page about the 5.1 surround sound mix of Mirage “sounding so fantastic” (see his Facebook post below). Despite piquing fan curiosity, Ken didn’t elaborate on whether the 5.1 mix would be released in the near future or if an expanded edition of Mirage was even in the works. But his post certainly generated social media buzz among diehard fans.

Fleetwood Mac’s 13th studio album Mirage was released on June 29, 1982. On August 7, the album reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart, remaining in the top position for five weeks through the week of September 4. The album’s lead single “Hold Me” was the band’s first Top 10 single since “Sara” (No. 7) from Tusk (1979), reaching No. 4 during the summer of 1982. The album’s momentum continued with the release of the next two singles “Gypsy” (No. 12) and “Love in Store” (No. 22). Heavy MTV rotation of the music videos for “Hold Me” and “Gypsy” contributed to the album’s popularity.

In 1983, Fleetwood Mac received two American Music Awards nominations for Best Pop/Rock Group and Best Pop/Rock Album. In 1984, the RIAA certified Mirage double platinum for the shipment of two million units to retailers.
