Overview

For years, Fleetwood Mac was a chameleonic beast, shifting mood and sound as members came and went. The band's steady if unspectacular career arc changed dramatically, however, with the arrival of Yankee interlopers Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks -- and that's the lineup chronicled on this 36-song set. The vast majority of the material on the two discs is culled from the late-'70s period that made the Mac a mainstay at rock radio. While all the hits from that era, such as Nicks's spiraling "Rhiannon" and the driving "Go Your Own Way," are included, fans can also find a healthy smattering of tunes that don't often make the airwaves. The haunting studio version of "Silver Spring," better known in its live incarnation and long available only as the B-side to "Go Your Own Way," is probably the best known of the set's lesser-heard songs, but several of the other obscurities -- like "As Long as You Follow" and "No Questions Asked," both of which were previously released only on the band's 1988 Greatest Hits set -- are worth honing in on. The collection flags a bit when the focus turns to latter-day material, but a passel of live tracks, including a nice take on Buckingham's solo hit "Go Insane," makes up for those missteps. Mac enthusiasts might want to hunt down a copy of the sprawling, now-out-of-print box set, The Chain, for a full career retrospective, but anyone with a soft spot for Fleetwood Mac's commercial peak will be more than satisfied with this collection.
