Not all the greatest or very best!

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.
