My "Time" representatives on a project like this would be "Winds of Change" and "All Over Again"...and would be tempted to include "These Strange Times" as well.

I'd also HAVE to include "Bermuda Triangle", too.

A rewarding and eclectic listen in my humble and biased opinion. It helps that Chris, Peter and Lindsey (twice) appear on tracks when they weren't part of the band.

The Chain
This is the Rock
Black Magic Woman

Behind the Mask

Although the sun is shining
Save me a place
Love that burns
Brown Eyes
Smile at you
Woman of 1000 years
Sentimental Lady
Little Lies
Go your own way
Nothing without you
Gypsy
Miss Fantasy
Caught in the rain
Safe Harbour
World keep on turning
I've been playing around with another unlikely 2nd 80 minute CD to accompany the one above using broadly the same rules- out in the shops, soon no doubt...

Big Love
Show me a smile
Dust
Closing my Eyes
Sara
All over again
Albatross
Landslide
Man of the World
Did you ever love me
Never going back again
Lazy Poker Blues
Eyes of the World
She's changing me
Say you love me
Sad Angel
When the sun goes down
Say Goodbye
Mission Bell
Gold Dust Woman
I loved another woman
Why


Too bad nothing from the definitely-not-and-was-never-going-to-be-a-Mac- album-honest could find its way onto it...

Default Have you any dreams? No.

Hmm.. my final revised attempt at a 3 CD (how quaint!) (near-enough) 50 year retrospective look at the breadth of the Mac's music. Each 80 minute CD has to include at least one track from each studio album and the EP. Sometimes a writer's work has been passed over from a particular album which may seem unfair, but time constraints, stylistic choices and a need to try to balance their contributions from other albums forced hard choices. So Mr Wonderful is all Peter, Kiln House is all Jeremy, no Bob Welch from Future Games or Penguin, no Chris from HAHTF or Mirage, no Lindsey from the White album, no Stevie from Tango and the EP. And no Dave Walker or Bob Brunning at all... shoehorning anything in other than the title track from Behind the Mask seems fraught. The Second Time, to my ears at least is not as bad as everyone makes out (cowers in the corner). Its chief virtue is its brevity, however. Still, four hours agreeably spent listening to it and the sequencing works, at least for me .

1.
The Green Manalishi (with the Two Prong Crown)

We don't need another compilation without the studio version of 'The Purple Dancer' included...

Well, I'm only doing it for my own amusement! I don't actually have the licensing agreement to market this...

Granted, if the original studio Purple Dancer ever does appear on CD I would be the first to try and fit it in somewhere but it might prove tricky. The version on the Madison Blues set is just too loud. It's a crying shame it's not available, I agree.

Is it the only commercially released FM track (other than the truly dire Lizard People) never to make it onto a CD or a digital download?

Interesting choices, Fuzzy. I'm not sure you would be able to squeeze them onto two discs, though. Maybe I'll try listening to it to see how it hangs together as it seems a bit scattershot (although doubtless my selections do when you see them written down).

Nothing from Mr Wonderful and the original pressing of Then Play On seems a tad harsh though? I appreciate there are a couple of singles and rarities from that era included, though.

Which Angel, by the way?

Yeah, I wasn't sure either whether they'd fit on 2 discs or whether they'd need to be on 3. I'm not really sure how many songs can be put on a single disc these days... I just remembered The Beatles' 1 album has 27 tracks (though I know a lot of their songs were really short).

I'm not too disappointed about missing Mr W, though I was certainly conscious about Then Play On. Perhaps I could swap over one or two.

Angel...you've got me...???...Nicks' I think.

Aw, Love that burns is truly beautiful. In fact Christine's keyboard work on Peter's tracks on Mr Wonderful is great. The Peter-Chris-John-Mick lineup of Fleetwood Mac that almost existed...
