LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM: ‘SOLO ANTHOLOGY’ Rhino; 3 CDs, $29.99; 6 LPs, $119.99; 1 CD, $9.99

It’s still startling that Fleetwood Mac toured in 2018 without Lindsey Buckingham, the guitarist and songwriter whose complex sparkling guitar parts and melodic architecture were absolutely essential to the band’s sudden 1970s superstardom; his guitar solos were onstage climaxes. Buckingham’s solo recordings can play like research and development for his contributions to Fleetwood Mac — a virtuoso on his days off. He toys with guitar tones and production strategies; he takes more liberties with his vocals; he leaves things less glossy. And while Fleetwood Mac may have commandeered most of his poppiest hooks, he kept some for himself including “Trouble” and “Holiday Road.” The three-CD and six-LP configurations include two previously unreleased songs and more than a dozen live band performances.
