An aside but I bought the Then Play On re-issue itself. It's exactly the same as the box set but the booklet is nice and I'm a completionist and had to have it.

I received my box set and what an awesome weekend going through these recordings and hearing many sounds for the first time. My standouts were that rocking version of Homeward Bound on the Bare Trees bonus tracks, Purple Dancer, and Dragonfly on Kiln House and my god, Good Things Come to Those Who Wait, make the crown jewel of the already stellar Mystery to Me. Sounds like it was recorded in 2020 it's so fresh and invigorating. I also liked Stone on Future Games and the sounds of Kirwan's guitar are nothing short of genius . Made me haul out the CD player for the first time in a long time, and what a great journey through time.

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait really is very good. Should have been included over For Your Love. I love Christine's backing vocal moans/warbles.

I love those backing vocals too. The sound just sounds so fresh and completely different from anything Fleetwood Mac ever did before or since to me.

She does them again on the THREE HEARTS reboot. They sound great there, too, though this time without the echo effect.

Wow, I love the ALT versions on Future Games! They seem more authentic.

I’m loving these remastered masterpieces.Hypnotized just came up on a rotation....what a classic song. It was always in my Fleetwood Mac “Top 10” but it probably has moved up a notch after this release.😎
