I subscribe to Google Play, and the new "Don't Stop, 50 years" release is available to stream and download. It's the closest thing to the old boxset, so I at least have it on my Google Play account now. Hopefully, one of these days, I'll find the "25 years" boxset on CD through eBay for a decent price.
You can get 25 Years: The Chain for 18 bucks on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/25-Years-Chai...dp/B00822KWME/

I was extremely disappointed to be honest. I was hoping for some kind of booklet with never seen before pics, like TITN.

But then I was hoping for the same with Lindsey’s Anthology. And again, no pics at all.

Here in The Netherlands, you can buy the 4 CD box set '25 Years - The Chain' in some CD shops for € 20.

Why has this done so badly in the US?

It's doing decently in the UK.

It's doing bad in the US because the 2 previous compilations are mega platinum. The older material, before Buckingham and Nicks, was much more popular in the UK

The lack of enthusiasm for this record does show how Fleetwood Mac as a band is close to finishing.

The whole Lindsey debacle put off many fans like me.

I love what this band was, but what it is now is just incredibly sad.

Exactly. They screwed their legacy by letting that bitter old goat be the bo$$.

$he's the worst thing that ever happened to FM.

The lack of enthusiasm for this uninspired record would have still been a dud if Lindsey hadn't of left. ZERO new material. Recycled collection.
I could care LESS about the current line-up, but critics have loved it, it's selling out and doing very well.
The only complaints I see are on the Ledge a few random youtube/facebook posts by the same 7-10 people that repeat themselves like a parrot. In the real world of Los Angeles and Miami, I hear nothing about it. People care more about their lives and families and own jobs than they do that Buckingham is no longer with FM.

Los Angeles and Miami are the real world

I also worked a season in yellowstone in the summer. I travel for work a lot. I subscribe to trade mags like Billboard, and Variety.
Anything I or somebody else says will get a negative reply if it's not supporting the doom and gloom of Buckingham's departure.
It's a shame he's no longer in the band.
But their legacy will always be intact.

Their legacy is f*cked.


Difficult to imagine someone with a "Stevie name" not thinking so.

It has nothing to do with my username.
As I have stated numerous times, I don't support the current line-up and am not attending the tour.
Fleetwood Mac's legacy is cemented into the history books.
They will always be one of the most iconic rock groups of all time and Lindsey will always be regarded as a genius guitarist and craftsman.

Lindsey's Solo Anthology has two new songs and one BuckVie song. Those three songs could have been part of this compilation if Stevie had said 'yes' to a new FM album when Lindsey tried to convince her to record new material that ultimately ended up being the BuckVie album. But because she said 'no'...

Critics haven't exactly loved it. I read more 'meh' reviews than 'oh, this is so good! Lindsey who?' ones. And it's not doing very well. It took them 6 months to start selling a second MSG. Six months.

I'm sure people also care more about their real lives in the whole world than Stevie being inducted again. I'm sure that day will go unnoticed by many people except for those 7-10 people on YouTube/Facebook/Twitter/IG that repeat themselved like a parrot because she's the first female that was inducted twice.
