All of 'em.

Seriously, it depends on what source you read. I've heard that they've sold upwards of 35 million albums in the US... but I have no idea how accurate that information is.

I think it would be interesting to see all of the sales figures.

Much Love,
Ethan

Figures from RIAA and Soundscan, as of December, 2006.

Pre-Soundscan era:

Future Games (1971, Gold)
Bare Trees (1972, 1x Platinum)
Mystery to Me (1973, Gold)
Fleetwood Mac (1975, 8x Platinum)
Rumours (1977, 19x Platinum)
Tusk (1979, 2x Platinum)
Live (1980, Gold)
Mirage (1982, 2x Platinum)
Tango in the Night (1987, 3x Platinum)
Greatest Hits (1988, 8x Platinum)
Behind the Mask (1990, Gold)

Soundscan era:

"25 Years: The Chain" (a Fleetwood Mac box set, 1992; 79,000)
"The Dance" (Fleetwood Mac, 1997; 4.4 million)
"The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac" (2002; 1.1 million)
"Say You Will" (Fleetwood Mac, 2003; 853,000)

Live in Boston is listed as platinum, but no sales figures are provided. So Fleetwood Mac has sold at least 50 million albums in the United States alone. If you include worldwide figures, the total would probably be close to 100 million. Not too shabby.

Wow. I didn't realize 1988's Greatest Hits sold as well. At the same time, I thought Heroes went Gold and that Tusk had sold a lot more...

Here's a link to RIAA's site. Says 48.5 million in U.S. for Fleetwood Mac. Stevie's at 10.5 million.

Certification information for Heroes isn't shown in the database. It may just be an oversight.

I had long considered Tusk a 4 million seller, thinking each record of the double-record Tusk was counted towards its certification. But then I read this from Wikipedia: "Multi-disc albums are counted once for each disc within the album, if the album is 100 minutes or more in total length." Since Tusk falls well short of 100 minutes in length, I suppose it didn't meet that requirement. The RIAA database seems to support this.

I don't get some of these album sale totals the RIAA site has Tango at 3 million units and Bella Donna at 5 million yet on the top 100 albums of the 1980s thread over on Chit Chat forum it had Tango at 5.1 million in the US. and Bella Donna is nowhere on the list?
