Default An introduction to the "lost" middle period

Now that the band is entering into a new, perhaps final phase, with hints that its pre-75 output is going to get some sort of live airing in the upcoming tour, I wonder how we might introduce the uninitiated to the post-Green pre BN era, not that in my heart of hearts I think much (or indeed any) of it will surface during the next tour.

Using my somewhat anachronistic tactic of compiling an 80 minute CD and trying to make something cohesive and flowing out of the Kiln House to Heroes era, I've come up with the following. Yeah, I know, no Station Man (studio version is too plodding) and no Purple Dancer (original studio version unavailable on CD/download anyway). I couldn't bring myself to include a Dave Walker song, even for the sake of completeness.

Spare me a Little of Your Love
One Together
Woman of 1000 years
Hypnotized
Dragonfly
Coming Home
Show Me a Smile
Dust
Did You Ever Love Me
Sentimental Lady
The Way I Feel
Caught in the Rain
Mission Bell
Remember Me
Child of Mine
Bermuda Triangle
Sunny Side of Heaven
Future Games
Why
Safe Harbour


Anyone tried anything similar?

I'm getting to know the Kiln House album better (though I've loved "Station Man" for decades) through the Fleetwood Mac channel on Sirius XM. However, I've long been a huge fan of the 1971-74 period covering Future Games through Heroes Are Hard To Find. I've made a 2-CD set I call Fleetwood Mac '71-'74, and its track-listings goes like this:

DISC ONE (1 hour, 11 minutes, 20 seconds)
01. Sunny Side Of Heaven
02. She's Changing Me
03. Dissatisfied
04. Emerald Eyes
05. Believe Me
06. Sentimental Lady
07. Come A Little Bit Closer
08. Sometimes
09. Spare Me A Little Of Your Love
10. Born Enchanter
11. Just Crazy Love
12. The Ghost
13. Did Your Ever Love Me
14. Silver Heels
15. Why
16. Bare Trees
17. Remember Me
18. Hypnotized

DISC TWO
(1 hour, 11 minutes, 19 seconds)
01. Bad Loser
02. Dust
03. Show Me A Smile
04. Child Of Mine
05. Keep On Going
06. Sands Of Time
07. Somebody
08. Danny's Chant
09. The Way I Feel
10. Woman Of 1000 Years
11. Heroes Are Hard To Find
12. Miles Away
13. Morning Rain
14. Angel
15. Homeward Bound
16. Forever
17. Prove Your Love

I agree that CDs are anachronistic so, despite their track lengths, I'd be loathe to exclude either Station Man or Future Games from a "middle period" collection.

Yes, I'm sorry! I'm glad you see the funny side. Oddly enough, I don't mind The Derelict but I couldn't see how it would really fit in musically with the rest of my selections , which total 77 min 58 mins, so a 2 min 49 second track would push it over 80 minutes anyway.

Roadrunner was never an option, I'm afraid. I wonder if he contributed any of the vocal "aahs" on Caught in the rain. I somehow doubt it, given the timbre of his voice.

I don't mean to denigrate Dave Walker, and I will confess to knowing next to nothing about his other work, but I'm part of the general consensus that sees him as being out of place in the context of FM.

I'll have to listen to your selections, Mclamb, to see how they flow. I get quite mellowed out listening to my track list at times. I wish this period was better appreciated and remembered.

Thanks for your replies and input.
