This afternoon my internet travels led me down a random path to discover that before there was Fleetwood Mac, there was Buckingham & Nicks.
According to Wikipedia, “Buckingham Nicks is the debut and sole studio album by the American rock duo Buckingham Nicks. Produced by Keith Olsen, the album was released in September 1973 by Polydor Records”.
You can listen to the entire album on YT. http://youtu.be/UKBft-I4UdU
Word on the web is that the album didn’t do so well. Can’t image why.
Favorites thus far: an amazing instrumental, “Stephanie”, and “Frozen Love”. Buckingham and Nicks were some dynamic duo. That photo says it all doesn’t it. A delightful throwback.
Don’t allow the Enemy to steal your JOY! Once your joy goes, it’s all downhill from there.

Check out Solange Knowles’ latest fashion project. Knowles lent her style sensibility as Art Director for PUMA’s Girls of Blaze Disc collection.
In November of 2013 PUMA announced that Knowles joined the team as a creative consultant. Knowles said, “Working with PUMA has allowed me to express my love for not only design but the conception of creative ideas, and the execution of them by curating amazingly talented teams,” said Solange. “I’ve had so much fun producing special content, events, and working alongside the PUMA team with some of my favorite emerging artists, photographers and graphic designers to create activations that really celebrate both mine and PUMA’s approach and philosophies.”
“PUMA couldn’t be happier to work with someone as talented as Solange,” said Tara McRae, Vice President of Strategic Planning and Brand Management for PUMA North America. “Her signature fashion sense along with her keen eye for design is unmatched. We are thrilled to bring her vision to life with this collection.”
The PUMA Disc Blaze was first introduced in 1992 as the world’s first laceless running shoe, just turn the Disc’s dial and the internal wires tighten the upper to maximize fit and comfort. In the 90’s, the Disc proved to be head-turning and record breaking on the track. Today, the Disc is back and making an impact on the lifestyle side with clean lines, and street style. This season marks the first time it is available for women.
Although it appears that PUMA did not make significant changes to the construction or design to the DISC perhaps Knowles’ celebrity fashion sense could be enough to draw enough “buzz”, and perhaps drive sales.
This song is taking me back to a simplier place and time @PVSpaceprincess- does’t it take you back? #throwbackfriday #barelybreathing
