We had great musicians in a big, grand studio. We were happening. Things were going our way. But up until that point I had been thinking of quitting it all and going back to school because I was sick of being miserable and I hate being poor. Waddy Wachtel was one of the musicians hired to assist in recording the album. So Keith and I started working together.
This was in like '68, '69 probably. And that's - from then on - that's when things started happening. And I want you to play on their record. The three of us became very tight, tight friends.
We were always together. I was crying when we took that picture. And Lindsey was mad at me. He said, 'You know, you're just being a child. This is art. This is me taking a nude photograph with you, and I don't dig it. I thought, 'Who are you? Don't you know me? I couldn't breathe. But I did it because I felt like a rat in a trap. Despite their efforts, Buckingham Nicks was virtually ignored by the promotional staff at Polydor Records.
Elsewhere in the country, the album did not prove to be commercially successful and was soon deleted from the label's catalog. However, shortly after the album's release, Mick Fleetwoodwhile evaluating recording studios, heard "Frozen Love" played back through studio monitors at Sound City by Keith Olsen. The touring band consisted of bassist Tom Moncrieffwho later played bass on Nicks' first solo album Bella Donnaand drummer Gary "Hoppy" Hodges, who played drums on the album.
Waddy Wachtel also toured with the band. Moncrieff and Hodges later formed the band Sinai 48 with a new singer-songwriter duo inmarking the first reunion of any Buckingham Nicks members aside from the continued collaboration of Buckingham and Nicks.
Despite the international success that Nicks and Buckingham later achieved, Buckingham Nicks has never been officially released on CD.
It has since been widely bootlegged, including one bootleg copy titled Buckingham Nicks: Deluxe Edition from South Korea.

He left my office, and I swear, by the time he got home, I had left a message asking him to introduce me to [Beck]". He explained, "I wasn't going to do anything for a long time, but Bong Load didn't have the means to make as many copies as people wanted. Geffen were involved and they wanted to make it to more of an organized place, one with a bigger budget and better distribution.
I never had any slack. That slacker stuff is for people who have the time to be depressed about everything. In his Consumer Guide, Robert Christgau gave the single CD a one-star honorable mentionpicked out two songs, "Fume" and "Alcohol", and stated that it's Beck's "greatest hit, an album demo, and two-for-three prime odds and ends".
Around the time of the song's release, Beck had been approached about including "Loser" on the soundtrack of the comedy film Dumb and Dumberbut he refused.
He recalled the process, "I remember getting a phone call one day. My manager said, 'There's a film. They want to use 'Loser' as the theme song. I tried to have fun with it, tried to not take it too serious. But at the same time, it was a little disheartening sometimes. The video for "Loser" was directed by Beck's friend Steve Hanft.
The unprocessed 16 mm film footage was frozen for 6 months until Beck signed with Geffen Records. Filming for the video was done all across California, including in Rothrock's Humboldt County studio and backyard and at the Santa Monica graveyard.
Beck insisted they were "fucking around" when they made the video; he told Option in"We weren't making anything slick — it was deliberately crude. You know? Two coffins were used, one which was a prop borrowed from a local drama school and the other which had been built by Beck and Hanft.
The moment where Beck is wearing a storm trooper mask is often censored for copyright reasons. The work's only clip shot on video rather than film is the one depicting famous mountain dancer Jesco White wearing a white satin shirt and dancing on a picnic table.
The clip was shot by director Julian Nitzberg and was added to the final cut on the last day of editing. The music video for Beck's song "Heart Is a Drum" features characters from the "Loser" video, including the grim reaper, and another version of Beck in which he wears the white outfit from the "Loser" video.
Also, two spacemen enter near the end of the "Heart Is a Drum" video as they ride away on the back of a pick up truck just as they do in the "Kill the Moonlight" film clip that was included in the "Loser" video. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Beck Carl Stephenson.
