New Fleetwood Mac box set 1969-1974
 
Fleetwood Mac’s early rise to fame takes centerstage on two upcoming Rhino releases that spotlight the group’s deep-blues roots.

On September 4, FLEETWOOD MAC 1969-1974 will be available as an 8 CD boxed set that includes remastered versions of all seven studio albums the band recorded between 1969 and 1974, several bonus tracks, and an unreleased 1974 concert recorded just a few months before Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the band. The set covers a five-year span that encompasses several different band lineups, from founding members Fleetwood, Green, McVie and Spencer, to later additions like Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, Dave Walker, Bob Welch, and Bob Weston.

FLEETWOOD MAC 1973-1974, also available on September 4, includes the unreleased 1974 live album, along with ‘Penguin’ (1973), ‘Mystery To Me’ (1973), and ‘Heroes Are Hard To Find’ (1974).
All the albums are pressed on 140-gram vinyl and presented in replica sleeves made to look like the original pressings. The set also includes a 7” single with “For Your Love” (Mono Promo Edit) on one side, and the previously unreleased “Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait)” on the flipside. A limited edition, colored-vinyl edition of FLEETWOOD MAC 1973-1974 will be available exclusively from www.rhino.com. The studio albums, live recording, and 7” single will each be pressed on a different colored vinyl: ‘Penguin’ (yellow), ‘Mystery To Me’ (orange), ‘Heroes Are Hard To Find’ (gold), ‘Live from the Record Plan 12-15-74’ (white), and 7” (blue).

I’m thrilled for this. I already placed my order for the 8 CD set. I Can’t Wait!

Sweet Baby Jesus!!!

This was my second biggest wish, just after Christine coming back.

The only way it could have been better is if they had gone with the more recent deluxe version of “Then Play On,” with the original track listing, but I just ordered one of those.

And Purple Dancer appears as a bonus track on Kiln House...:)

Good Things is also a bonus on the MTM CD, which is a relief...I've never heard of "Stone" a bonus on Future Games, though...

This is pretty exciting and these desperately needed remastering. The Live Album sounds interesting. It was done right at the time Bob left. Has this been shared before as a bootleg? Was it done as promotion since it was done at the Record Plant? Hopefully there is a book or good liner notes.

this is the live Record Plant broadcast, from two weeks before you-know-who joined...

It’s been widely circulated over the decades. However, it might be much better sound quality.

Here’s a link for the whole show.

I've been so sick of post McVie/Welch/Kirwan/Green era.

Plus, I've already been listening to these albums already. (And a little bit of the 1975 White album Deluxe concerts which has a few of these tunes.)

I have also been listening to a lot of pre 1975 recently. I plan to listen to the entire box sets of the 5 post 1974 MAC because it’s been a while but I’m really looking forward to this box set. I hope the packaging is decent.

HONK MY HOOTER!!!! I’m totally getting this!!!!!!!

My only wish is that “Start Again”—the original (and to my way of thinking far superior) version of “Morning Rain”—was included.

Also, I’m not sure most of the music is remastered. It appears only the items that have already been remastered from previous reissues (THEN PLAY ON and several singles from the DON’T STOP compilation). But hopefully I’m wrong and the songs are remastered. Also curious about “Stone.”

The Rhino Site leads me to believe everything is re-mastered.

The real holy grail in this box is Stone, a previously unissued track on the Future Games disc.

Also of note:

Five out of the eight Future Games tracks appear in alternate forms here.

Penguin has no bonus tracks.

The Purple Dancer is finally out of the wilderness.
