Biography

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac ... Read more in Amazon's Fleetwood Mac Store

The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac? Frankly, it depends where you live, in a sort of "I say tom-ar-toe, you say toe-may-doe" kind of way. Broadly speaking, the most notably interesting (and commercially successful) periods of Fleetwood Mac's episodic history remain the grubby blues of the original Peter Green-led incarnation of the late 1960s (big in Britain but a non-entity in America) and the refined, mid-1970s divorce-dissecting AOR of the Buckingham / Nicks Rumours era (big everywhere). It is fairly safe to assume that neither British nor American passport-holders are particularly interested in what happened in between. So then, the UK retail version of The Very Best of rightly condescends to throw in such Peter Green classics as the instrumental "Albatross" (a Number One single) and "Black Magic Woman" but--and here's the gripe--omits both "On Well" and "Green Manalishi" in favour of such peripherals as the less-than-spectacular 1988 Number 54 hit "Family Man".

It could be worse. The American Very Best of (unlike its British counterpart, a two-CD set available on import) incredulously neglects to include anything from the Peter Green line-up at all, not even the sulky brooding of the sensuous "Man of the World" (possibly the finest song ever written), a little matter that American audiences ought to find time to raise with the United Nations. Still, there can be no quarrel with most of what is on here, after all, there's a sizeable chunk from the Lazarus-style comeback of Tango in the Night and the multi-platinum Rumours(the gossamer-like timelessness of "Dreams" even managing to withstand a recent faux-folky mauling from the Corrs) it's just that there isn't enough of it. Can someone please hurry up and make CDs that play for two hours? --Kevin Maidment

This is a sumptuous feast of classic tracks culled from Fleetwood Mac's second incarnation. All the hits and memorable numbers are here in a beautifully remastered double set, currently selling for under a fiver. How good does life get? The set includes 'Dreams', 'Go Your Own Way', 'Rhiannon', 'Little Lies', 'The Chain', and many more delectable, melodically saturated slices of pure musical bliss. If you're in any doubt at all, just take a moment to listen to some of the samples, with Stevie Nicks richly seductive drawl underpinned by some glistening instrumental work, and insidious group harmonies. My only (pedantic) bitch would be that, without the glorious 'Albatross', 'Black Magic Woman' or the haunting 'Green Manilishi', this is really only half the Fleetwood Mac story. However, you can easily remedy this by exploring the wonders of Peter Green's bluesier version of this fine band on The Best Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac So, to recap: this is possibly the bargain of the century, so grab it while you can!

This should really be called "The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac 1975-1997". Whereas the single disc version of this compilation shows some of the early british blues material this double CD collection is the classic lineup only: Stevie Nicks, Linsdsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. It contains all of the big hits released by this lineup up including 'Go Your Own Way', 'Tusk', 'Little Lies, 'Gypsy', 'Sara', 'Don't Stop' and of course 'Everywhere. This is worth the extra tenner as it also contains some of the best album tracks like 'Sisters of the Moon' and 'Skies the Limit'. Any new fans should buy this as it contains the ultimate mac songs that would be perfect to pull in some new fans.

This is an excellent collection. This was out in the US in 2002 when we got the single disc version, so I bought it then. The difference is this sticks to the Buckingham Nicks era only, no Peter Green hits are here. It a comprehensive collection giving room to tracks like Go Insane only previously availible on the Dance DVD. Also you get a couple of tracks from the Chain box set, Paper Doll and Love Shines. Intrestingly they hav also decided to put the original 70's single mixes of Say you love me and Rhiannon which is nice as these were the original version bought on 7" and played on the radio, and it makes a change if you have the original Fletwood mac album. This has enough to keep the fan intersted and also a good introduction to the new commers too.

Having seen Fleetwood Mac in a great live concert in Belfast 2003 I bought this greatest hits CD and it lived up to my expectations. Like almost everyone else on the planet I already had somme Fleetwood Mac in my collection (In my case Rumours and Tusk)but this CD brings the best of those plus some essential tracks which were missing from my collection such as Gypsy and Rhiannon.
If you do not own any Fleetwood Mac this is a great CD to start with.

In the early nineties, every major group put out a BOX SET. Now the trend is to produce a double CD greatest hits package. It's all the rave - Rolling Stones, Elton John, Bee Gees, David Bowie and now Fleetwood Mac. But this is a good thing.
Fleetwood Mac's box set was nearly overly inclusive and really only sold to the most devout fans. A few years later, a single 'Greatest Hits" CD was released. Now with the double CD phenomenon, we have a more affordable and better selection of Fleetwood Mac's best. The Enhanced Sound is truly detectable and most of the hit songs are the singles versions, making for some refreshing song openings.
There is no material before 1975, however, it's a good selection and one that every true fan and every "maybe" fan will enjoy. The liner notes are good and there is a nice songlist with dates and chart notes. There is a fancy CD-ROM attachment with "sales" promotional stuff about the upcoming album, but it's really just another good excuse to keep people from burning a CD copy - yes, with a CD-ROM attachment, most people cannot make copies.
Trivia: It's tough to beleive that a group this popular only had one Number One Hit - "Dreams". They should have had more. This is a great set.

Well *sigh* yes another best of album but the Mac. Alas I cannot justify giving this album anything other than five stars due to just how amazing they are. This is a great collect of all things Fleetwood Mac. If you are new to the band, wanting a rounded collection of the hits, or just looking to add to your collection, then this is an excellent album. It contains their "very best" songs. Faultless...but we all know that. Worth a purchase if not just to have all these songs collected together.

I love Fleetwood Mac

I bought Rumours on vinyl and when CD technology was developed, I bought the CD version too.

I have several albums by FM but what really narks me is that the one track that went to number 1 and was played on Top Of The Pops every week for what seemed an eternity is never included in the later compilations.

Those of you who were around in the 60's and 70's will remember the instrumental "Albatross". A very easy to listen to track that reminds one of long lazy days in the hot summer.

This track appears on only one of the albums I have and I had to search many track listings for it. Its just called "Fleetwood Mac - Greatest Hits" on the CBS label (460704-2). It has only 12 tracks on one CD and also features Green Mannalishi, Oh Well (Parts 1 & 2), Black magic Woman and Man Of The World.

I can't understand why "Albatross" does not feature on more of FM's compilation albums. Its not even on the latest 3 CD offering that is being pushed by Sainsbury's.
