Yep and at the very least a digital copy of all of the solo albums by all the members (although I have to admit I have wetcamelfood to thank for a few of the out of print ones - Bob Weston and Brunning Sunflower for example).

The only one I did not buy is Time. But the next time I see it in a store for 5 bucks, I'll pick it up, just to finish the collection. Couldn't vote, no answer fitting.

I skipped Time and sold my copy of Behind The Mask at a garage sale.
Other than that, I have them all from the late 60's to the EP.
I really wish Then Play On, Future Games, Heroes, Bare Trees and Mystery to Me would make it to iTunes.

I have all of the FM albums.

I have all of the solo albums for Mick, John, Christine, Lindsey and Stevie.

[I had so many free copies of Something Big I thought of handing them out on a street corner]

I have some, not all, of the solo albums for Welch, Bekka, Billy, and Rick.

And I have other albums that Macsters are associated with from Sandy Stewart, Walter Egan, Zevon, John Stewart, Trailer Park Troubadours, etc.

I suppose option 2 would work for you? Thanks to everyone for replying. Maybe I should have included options for Rumours lineup/Welch era only and Rumours/Green eras only (that was me for quite a while in the early 90s- it was quite rare to see any mid-period Mac in the record stores here in the UK, and when I did spot them it was an expensive import. This was all pre-internet days so you couldn't cheat by sampling the dubious legality of delights that is Youtube!).

I suppose so. Remember I've only been in fandom four years. I'm also part of the Dark Shadows and Lucille Ball fandom. That coupled with my generous $18K yearly salary and taking care of my disabled mother, I have to make my purchases selectively.

P.S. Youtube and spotify have become very handy!

I guess I'm weird, but here's my FM collection:

Kiln House
Bare Trees
Fleetwood Mac
Rumours
Tusk
Mirage
Tango In The Night
The Dance
Say You Will

and via download, Extended Play.

I know obviously I'm a Buckingham Nicks era fan for the most part, but I also think Danny Kirwan is amazing. "Station Man" is one of my favorite songs. However, as much as I tried, a lot of the Bob Welch stuff just didn't do it for me. I mean, both "Hypnotized" and "Sentimental Lady" are both nice, but they don't truly grab me like a lot of the Mac's best. And as far as the Peter Green era, I've considered both the debut album and Then Play On, but I've never done it, and I'm not sure I ever will. Oddly, my favorite stuff I've heard from Peter Green is that early '70s stuff like "Heavy Heart", I think it's beautiful.

And then solo-wise, I'm pretty much just a Lindsey guy. I have Law And Order, Go Insane, and Out of the Cradle. And I have a Christmas compilation with "Holiday Road" on it, bought just for the reason of having a legal CD copy of the song, haha. I haven't gotten any of Lindsey's 2000s-era solo stuff though, because just from the samples I've heard, I'm not super impressed. I mean, there's a few really cool things like "Time Precious Time" and "Seeds We Sow", but I don't know. Anybody wanna convince me? At different times I've considered Under the Skin or Gift of Screws, but I just don't know. I hope somebody here helps me to decide to go for one of those, haha.

Anyways, I've been meaning to get a Stevie best of, but I just never did. And Christine, I dunno, I really love "Got A Hold On Me" or whatever, but I just haven't heard enough good things about her solo work to really jump in. Maybe one day.

So yeah, hopefully somebody on here would like to direct where, if anywhere, I should go next in Fleetwood Mac land.

I'm surprised at the die-hard fans that either
don't like Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, or that
won't even give those albums a chance.

When The Chain box set came out in the
early 90's it was Peter Green's songs on the
fourth CD that turned out to be the most
treasured by me of the ones I wasn't familiar
with.

On record, I have Then Play On from the Green years and then everything else from mid to Buckingham Nicks to Mask. Managed to get my hands on an original Mystery to Me gate fold a few years back. My Bare Trees has my original receipt at $7.98 bought in May of 1979. Bought Rumours and Tusk shortly after their release dates. Nothing really beats the sound of the record on the turntable despite all the (limited) remastering.

$7.98 was a good price for an album back then.
