For a preview of Fleetwood Mac fingerpicker Lindsey Buckingham’s stop at the Southern this Saturday, look no further than “Songs From the Small Machine: Live In L.A.,” a new 16-track solo joint that captured Buckingham on stage last year at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.

The album presents the sort of career-spanning set you’d hope for from a luminary like Buckingham, delivering full-throated, impressively dexterous renditions of solo material new and old plus a healthy helping of Mac, some of it with a band, some Lindsey by his lonesome.

Make sure to arrive on time; this show is sponsored by the always-prompt Wexner Center, and there’s no opening act.
