You canít move for 50th anniversaries right now and so Fleetwood Mac will celebrate a half century of music in November with 50 Years: Donít Stop a 50-song collection that explores the groupís entire career, from its early days playing the blues, to the superstardom and rock/pop of the late 1970s, 1980s and beyond.

The 50 tracks span from 1968 to 2013 and that means music from every incarnation of the band with musicians such as Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremey Spencer, John McVie, Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, Bob Welch, Bob Weston, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Billy Burnette, Rick Vito, Dave Mason, and Bekka Bramlett.

The CD edition is a three-CD package, while to fit everything on vinyl means that is a five-record set. Thereís 20-track single CD version that ends up being more of a traditional Ďgreatest hitsí. David Wild has written sleeve notes for this new release.

50 Years: Donít Stop is released on 16 November 2018.
So are there any songs here that haven't been released before? I'll admit that after taking a glance at this, some of these songs I would like to get on cd. Sands Of Time, Fireflies, Sad Angel, Did You Ever Love Me, Tell Me All The Things You Do, Heroes Are Hard To Find, and Emerald Eyes. Are these remastered? And I'm also curious as to what the various single versions of these songs sound like as opposed to what is on the album(s). I have most of what the 3cd set is offering. But I will say it's not a bad collection of FM songs for the casual FM fan. It's more concise, coherent, and representative of all eras of FM.
