Do you have a favorite Landslide performance? I think my very favorite is the one from the Rumours tour in Japan. It's really so special. Even Lindsey has a certain look on his face throughout the whole thing.

Hey anon, I agree, the one in Japan from the ‘Rumours Tour’ is just gorgeous! I have so many favorites though… ‘The Dance’ DVD one holds a very special place in my heart because it was the first one I’ve ever watched. I was very touched by “this is for you Daddy” long before I became a fan.

I love the one from Passaic in 1975 where Christine introduces the song, she sings it so softly and there’s a beautiful “oooh” in the middle. Also the one from Wallingford in 1975, I’m pretty these pictures are from that radio show.

I absolutely love the one with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. The ‘Walden Woods’ benefit performance from 2002 has the most gorgeous arrangement and it’s just so different that it’s a favorite too! All the performances from the ‘Arizona Heart Institute’ concerts and the ones with ‘Sound City Players’.

And I was in awe of every single performance of ‘Landslide’ from the ‘24 Karat Gold Tour’. ♥

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.
