Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 10 (2019) - The Draw!

To my knowledge, Buckingham Nicks has never been (legally) re-released or placed on streaming services. I believe this has quite a bit to do with Lindsey and Stevie's tumultuous on-and-off relationship, and with Lindsey currently out of Fleetwood Mac, I don't see a re-release happening anytime soon.

Really unsure where this fits in the "10%" rule - feels like just slightly over 10%? But the song as an entire piece feels very much like an instrumental and would place very highly on my list if allowed.
