Fleetwood Mac's Bare Trees is one of those rare records that, despite its lack of any hit single or significant sales in the initial years following its release, has gone on to make a well-earned name for itself among a wide-range of listeners. Now over 30 years old, the recording has become a quaint but well-executed document of early-seventies post-blues rock.
First up, Danny Kirwan, the group's then lead guitarist, contributes mightily to the sessions. Child of Mine and Bare Trees both hold up as solid, well-crafted rock songs. The former has a hard and driving quality that, in parts, prefigures some of the chords and figures evidenced in the group's long-standing anthem, The Chain on Rumors. The title track moves along sinuously at an even pace. Two instrumentals of very different character display the guitarist's subtle skills at arrangement. His best contribution, however, may very well be Dust, a mature acoustic ballad that features lovely harmonies, a great lyric, and a catchy though not over-obvious chorus.

Elsewhere, Bare Trees does not dissapoint either. Christine McVie offers Spare Me a Little of Your Love, one of her most well-known pop songs from this era. While not one of her best on paper, it is certainly sung with a heart-felt conviction that shows off her seductive voice. Homeward Bound is a better song with, perhaps,a poorer arrangement. Given an update, this tune could really be something.

Bob Welch's contributions are less thrilling than his work on Future Games, the group's previous recording, but Sentimental Lady proves an enduring song. It would be re-recorded years on with much success for the songwriter, but this original version holds the edge, in part due to the brilliant counterpoint between Welch's and McVie's vocals.

There's no question that Bare Trees sounds 31 years old. It's production and arrangements are dated. But the fire of some of the sessions best performances and the well-written tunes transcend most limitations that might arise due to changes in taste.
