Mike Frost Band: Songbird

I was 8 years old when Fleetwood Mac released Rumours. My parents would spin that record often – as would I, despite not being allowed to touch the turntable.

One of my favorite songs on that record was Christine McVie’s “Songbird”. While I never imagined that song reworked for other instrumentation, bassist Mike Frost thankfully did. Here’s Mike and his band performing the tune, with some beautiful fretless bass work by the bassist setting the foundation.
