Default Assemble a "Best of" Live Album

So I was making a playlist of my favorite live Mac material and it was pretty challenging! It got me curious as to what picks other people might have.

So here's the game: Pick 20-25 of the best live Mac songs and say where the recording came from. You can pull from any of the four Deluxe Reissues, The Dance, LIVE, the Tango show, and Live in Boston. You can explain why as well if you feel you need to provide a reason.

I'm still assembling mine but will post it soon.

(Also, one thing I realized while doing this is that we never did get a proper recording of Brown Eyes live )
"I am just one small part of forever" -Think About It (The song that got me into Stevie Nicks)

"The face of a pretty girl x1,000,000" -Isn't It Midnight (The song that got me into Christine McVie)

"The sun is bright, but not too bright to see. When the darkness comes you've got to fly into the light." -Doing What I Can (The song that got me into Lindsey Buckingham)

"I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain" -The Chain (The song that got me into Fleetwood Mac)

Its a good challenge but I will make it easy on myself. I LOVE the 1980 LIVE album so I will keep most of it. The album has some of the best live cuts of I'm So Afraid, Rhiannon, Over My Head, Oh Well, Say You Love Me, Over and Over, and Sara (even though Sara is studio touched).
So I will keep those songs as my base.
I hate the Dreams and Don't Stop sound checks so would drop those. I would also drop the new songs One More Lonely Night and Fireflies. I would add a Mirage version of The Chain and a Mirage version of Sisters of the Moon. I would include also Why from 1976. I would ideally take Why from 1974 but trying to keep the album with all the same band members.
I would not include anything post 1982. I like arena rock. The addition of background singers and The Dance being a more studio sounding live band.

Still I believe.....BACKSTABBING AND BETRAYAL will show us how

I love Mirage tour Sara. It sounds different from Tusk tour Sara. Lindsey’s guitar on Mirage Sara is really cool.

I'm disappointed no one wants the live version of The Green Manalishi from the White Album reissue. Stevie's wailing is glorious.
