Fleetwood Mac’s hit 1982 album, Mirage, is set for reissue on July 29th in an expanded package that contains live tracks, early versions of familiar songs, outtakes and previously unheard studio jams. It will be available as a bare-bones remastered album, a two-CD expanded edition and a deluxe-edition box set that contains three CDs, a DVD and a vinyl LP. Preview the set below with an early version of the Stevie Nicks-sung single “Gypsy.”

Mirage came just three years after Fleetwood Mac released their experimental double LP Tusk, but in that time both Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham launched solo careers and MTV drastically changed the pop-music landscape. Unlike many Seventies rock bands that struggled in this new era, Fleetwood Mac thrived. Mirage singles “Hold Me” and “Oh Diane” became big hits on radio and MTV, and the band supported the LP with an extremely successful American arena tour.

Fleetwood Mac’s next album, 1987’s Tango in the Night, was their final release with the classic Rumors-era lineup, though the band did reunite for a tour in 1997. In 2014, keyboardist Christine McVie returned to the band after a long absence for a rapturously received reunion tour. There’s been talk of a new studio album, but there’s no clear sign they’ve actually begun work on it.
