If the 2 minute musical intro was a problem, they could have tried editing it.


Some comments:
- Two what extent was Lindsey involved/not involved in the track selection? Do we know if he had any involvement back in 1988 for Greatest Hits?
- So when Lindsey is in the band they release greatest hits packages with the band's photo on the cover, and when Lindsey isn't in the band they use abstract designs of flowers or animals or tattoos.
- I like that "Fireflies" was included; at the same time, I absolutely hate that it was included given the current context.

Lame ..and no new songs . 25 years The Chain had 3. This incarnation of Fleetwood Mac is a creatively bankrupt cash grab unit.

And of course the songs released between Greatest Hits and Time are either Stevie or Christine tunes.

Ohh but it's a new band!

It would of been more interesting to have them spend a month in the studio re-cutting some of the older blues tunes in a refreshed way with the new band. That would require effort.

This comp looks pretty good, plus it's actually going to get a vinyl release unlike the overrated Chain boxset.

Songs on the trailer..

Well, this is a little bit refreshing:


Don't Stop, Hypnotized, Station Man, Sentimental Lady, Sands of Time, The Chain...

If the middle four of those made into the set, however briefly, that would be cool...I'm not holding my breath, though...

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.

http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/ne...ars-dont-stop/
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.

I like that this collection is more organized than "25 Years - The Chain". The tracks on this new set are in chronological order, and it'll be nice to hear the progression of the band.

I'd have liked to see more of the material from the 1971-74 period here, though I'm happy to have "Emerald Eyes" included. Also would have liked more from Behind The Mask and Time, though if there could only be one song from the latter, "I Do" represents it well.


I'm very happy to see "Fireflies" here, though the live version of "Never Going Back Again", is sure to be skipped by me. I'll check out "Sad Angel", as I've never heard it before.

Basically, itís just the singles.

The only changes Iíd make:

Emerald Eyes -> For Your Love (single) or Miles Away (better song, not a cover)
Monday Morning -> Iím So Afraid
NGBA -> IKINW

And, Iíd drop all of the above for new material.

Never Going Back Again is live from what?
NGBA is live from the 1980 album called Live.

I think essentially what we have here is an A-sides collection. For all the comparisons with the Chain box set, this one gives the Bob Welch era a much better representation.

A few changes Iíd make:

Monday Morning > Iím So Afraid
Second Hand News > Songbird

The live Never Going Back Again I would jettison along with I Do which wasnít even Chrisís best song on Time. I think Blow By Blow would actually do well in theee in the version originally recorded for the 1994 World Cup compilation. Then Iíd probably include Love That Burns as Mr Wonderful is the only one of the 17 studio albums not represented here.

Strange that they didn't put something in from there, even if it was just to "represent." I wonder why not? "Love That Burns" would have been a great pick.
