Okay but not consistent high standard on show sadly.

Sadly this double collection while great value for money reaffirms that the Nicks/Buckingham reincarnation of Fleetwood Mac really hit its peak with their first two albums and has lived on that reputation for all subsequent releases over the decades.
While much of those two albums is included it also underlines that a lot of subsequent material (about half of this set) is rehashes and filler and rarely hits the same standard (the main tracks form Tusk being the exception). An opportunity to include a lot of singles only released mixes and rare tracks over the years is overlooked and the three live tracks are unexceptional to my ears.
If you are not owners of those early two releases (Fleetwood Mac and Rumours) then I would start with getting those before this compilation
