This set of five albums covers Fleetwood Mac's album releases from 1969 to 1973, excluding Penguin from 1973 and replacing it with Mystery to Me, their later release from 1973. It is an interesting and inexpensive package to explore the development of the group from Peter Green's blues rock through various styles including the emerging pop rock harmonies that would distinguish the Buckingham / Nicks hit making outfit of 1975 onwards. These albums were not mega sellers on release, although they continued to sell steadily as the group became popular. Then Play On reached number 4 on the UK charts and Kiln House charted in USA, UK and Australia, and both Future Games and Mystery To Me are now certified Gold and Bare Trees is certified Platinum.

The albums cover four incarnations of the group, but the propulsive and inventive rhythm section of Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass remains throughout. The sound is ok - it could be better given that three of these albums were recorded using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio - the transfer to digital would benefit from a remaster - I recently reviewed Howlin Wolf's London Sessions (DeLuxe edition) and the remastered sound on that 1971 double disc is superb.

Then Play On (1969) was the final Peter Green album and saw the development from a pure blues band to a blues rock unit which was prepared to use influences from Spanish Canto hondo to classical. A good album, this US version has two Mac classics, Oh Well Pts 1 & 2 and Rattlesnake Shake, as well as a number of strong songs and a couple of instrumentals and hot excerpts from jams. Note that this US issue replaced two Kirwan songs from the UK release, Without You and One Sunny Day with the UK hit Oh Well Pts 1 & 2.

Some really obscure songs here, many of which I was totally unaware of, as they never ever received radio play back in the day, but thanks to this series, have at long last come to the surface again. many excellent tracks, and you can hear the subtle changes in the groups sound as they cross from the earlier Peter Green influence through the Danny Kirwen era and then into the softer sounding Christine McVie lead vocals, which sound very much near the soft rock sound they became famous for after Nicks & Buckingham took the lead.

For those missing out on the so-called middle period Fleetwood Mac this is a highly recommended package. Kiln House the first post Peter Green issue sees Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer share the leadership through a eclectic album from blues to country to pop leanings. Jeremy Spencer jumps ship to be replaced by Bob Welsh sharing guitar and song-writing duties and to me Future Games, is the best of the period. Bare Trees is the same line-up and is another excellent offering. Out go Kirwan and the bands takes various shapes, even to the point of having a lead singer. These albums were a bit variable to say the least, but Mystery was by far the best of them. As for Then Play On, I was never a fan of the blues except for the first album, my main attention being drawn by the non album Green Manalishi, Man of the World, Albatros etc. So 4 stars for the middle three from me.

Edit: Just bought the "Then Play On" remaster and it is great, especially with the added tracks.

Having read many of the reviews, I was quite looking forward to hearing the 4 albums in this set that I was not familiar with. Having seen Fleetwood Mac a number of times in the 1960s, including once when the band was fronted by Messrs. Kirwan and Spencer, I was hoping that the post-Greeny stuff would contain plenty of wistful Kirwan songs, and not too much Spencer rock and roll!
Firstly, let me clearly state that, in my opinion, Then Play On is a classic. Where Mac could have gone, beyond this, if Peter Green had stayed, we can only wonder at.
With regard to the other 4 albums, I have to say that I found them all pretty dull, with very few memorable songs. It is not really surprising that the popularity of the band fell during this period. I was hoping for some material by Kirwan of the standard of Dragonfly or World In Harmony, but it just isn't there! Jeremy Spencer was a truly wonderful exponent of Elmore James slide guitar, but beyond that, his pretty amateurish rock and roll songs had me pressing the skip button very quickly! Other tracks, including those by Christine Perfect, are ok, but nowhere near the standard of her work with the later versions of Mac.
The last couple of albums in the series are probably the best, particularly Mystery To Me, but I have to say that the entire box set will be heading to
the second hand record shop fairly quickly (I already own Then Play On!).

How can you go wrong with 5 Fleetwood Mac albums at for the cost of 1 Full price CD.
OK this was a period of great change for the band the end of the first great period with Peter Green, (The US track listing of 'Then Play On' not the recent superior UK tracks), the Introduction of Christine McVie and a number of Guitarists taking charge to greater or lesser effect. Some albums work better than others despite the evocative cover 'Bare Trees' is more miss than hit and the production sounds poor Drums sound like cardboard boxes, while 'Kiln House' and 'Mystery to Me' have a better hit potential. Overall very pleased with the set it filled the gap in my Mac Collection and that is not a bad thing.
