Default 50 years: Don't Stop

Career-spanning compilation • 3CD or 5LP vinyl

You can’t move for 50th anniversaries right now and so Fleetwood Mac will celebrate a half century of music in November with 50 Years: Don’t Stop a 50-song collection that explores the group’s entire career, from its early days playing the blues, to the superstardom and rock/pop of the late 1970s, 1980s and beyond.

The 50 tracks span from 1968 to 2013 and that means music from every incarnation of the band with musicians such as Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremey Spencer, John McVie, Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, Bob Welch, Bob Weston, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Billy Burnette, Rick Vito, Dave Mason, and Bekka Bramlett.

The CD edition is a three-CD package, while to fit everything on vinyl means that is a five-record set. There’s 20-track single CD version that ends up being more of a traditional ‘greatest hits’. David Wild has written sleeve notes for this new release.

50 Years: Don’t Stop is released on 16 November 2018.

They called that The Chain boxed set, roughly 25 years ago.

So nice of them to sell us ANOTHER repackaging.

This one is a hard no for me. It's a missed opportunity for the latest lineup to put something, anything out.

Great little quote from a commenter on that website:

It's a cool collection to stream. No reason to purchase it.

My opinion too. It's got remastered versions of some good older songs and Save Me, and it's a better boxset for casual fans to use as a gateway to explore than The Chain was, frankly. That's about all its good for.

Emerald Eyes instead of Why? I find that an odd choice...

Kudos for including one (edited) song from Time. I think the choices from Say You Will are a bit too predictable and not the best of that album.

I can't decide whether I'm relieved that I don't have to buy this collection as they couldn't be bothered to record one song to introduce the new line-up. On balance, it's sad they didn't haul themselves into the studio. They were obviously too busy trying to get their story straight...

Oh dear, oh dear. How incredibly poor this is.
Despite being 25 years ago I think The Chain is actually a better option.
At least back then that release had a few new things of note.
Sad!

Very uninspired set, imho...

Agree that The Chain was a better offering; and if you're talking 1975+, Very Best Of 2002 was also better.

At least they're not just rewrapping all of their albums en masse and charging $200 for it, like the Eagles.

Yes, a great shame not to include "Why".
If the 2 minute musical intro was a problem, they could have tried editing it.


Some comments:
- Two what extent was Lindsey involved/not involved in the track selection? Do we know if he had any involvement back in 1988 for Greatest Hits?
- So when Lindsey is in the band they release greatest hits packages with the band's photo on the cover, and when Lindsey isn't in the band they use abstract designs of flowers or animals or tattoos.
- I like that "Fireflies" was included; at the same time, I absolutely hate that it was included given the current context.

Lame ..and no new songs . 25 years The Chain had 3. This incarnation of Fleetwood Mac is a creatively bankrupt cash grab unit.
