Subject: RE: Simplicity works for me...
Nick - very true. The only thing that disappoints sometimes is where the live performance is lacklustre when compared with the recorded one. I've had the misfortune (just now and then luckily) to have seen somebody I respected musically in, shall we say, a "tired and emotional" state!

As far as the Fleeetwood Mac track which helped to trigger this thread is concerned, my guess is that the stringless version perhaps is more appealing to the blues purist, but that Blue Horizon Records guessed - perhaps rightly - that the version with strings would reach a wider audience and make more money. Just a theory.
