Greatest Hits Tracklist:
An exceptional album full of songs that showcase the talents of the best band in history. It provides a great variety of songs that showcase the talents of each and every musician. Any Fleetwood Mac song could easily have made it onto this album, as each song is beautiful and transcending in its own particular way. (In my opinion, Landslide would have made an enormous contribution to this record.) Their music continues to inspire generations and will live on forever and always.
I’m 15 and I love Fleetwood Mac so much. I’m going to see them in April. Their music is unlike any other, and I wish more music like this would be made today. Music from the 70s-80s is BY FAR better than most of today’s.
Calling this FW’s “Greatest Hits” is both deceptive and a bit insulting, in that it focuses on favorites from their top seller, “Rumors,” while largely ignoring almost all of their earlier work. In particular, it neglects the period when Danny Kirwan played guitar for the band, especially some excellent music from their “Bare Trees” album. That’s a shame. There are certainly some excellent songs in this collection, but don’t mistake it for a true “best of” in breadth or quality.
Love this album. To those who review the album for content - itunes did not make the album, they only sell it, so itunes has no way to control what songs Fleetwood Mac puts in the album. This is Fleetwood Mac's greatest hits released 1988. IMHO it is a great album.
No Danny's Guitar, Oh Well, or Child of Mine tells me this isn't Peter Green, Danny Kirwan or Jeremy Spencer's Fleetwood Mac but Buckingham-Nicks version. Nice radio stuff but add the classic LPs, please--Then Play On, Kiln House, etc.
Jolie Lives-11/14/16 Someone, anyone, just Please Tell Me That "HYPNOTIZED" was Not, One Of The Bands MOST AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL SONGS!!?! That it's "Not" (?) One of Their Greatest Hits! That their Harmonies on the Song, weren't Truly Magnificent! Because of more Group Bloody Drama, not only is the Album Not Available, we can buy the Song, But Not Sung By Fleetwood Mac! This is The Biggest Bunch of Bovine Effluence, Anyone has ever attempted, to shovel over something so Exquisite, it's Bloody Criminal! He wasn't satisfied with the Quality of Hypnotized, on the Album. Yet, he'll sell his own version of it. We're sure that his decision wasn't at all influence by his access to the beaucoup ($) Dollars or was it the Bloody Freaking (£) Pounds??!!!! Kids, ask your 'rents about the Song and the Album! It was, One of Their BEST AND IT'S JUST GONE! The Politics of Money And Ego just can't be beat! It's comparable to "Can't Find My Way Home", by Blind Faith, just disappearing! While the Group has many other Great Songs, Hypnotized literally saved my life. Literally and figuratively, in many, many ways! Growing up, surrounded by literal Monsters, Music became and is still an Integral Part of my Surviving, Thriving and the many Successes I've achieved to Date, in my Life! To be unable (Without becoming Sherlock Holmes!) to add the Original Version of Hypnotized to my iTunes Library, makes me really Sad and Angry! Not only have I realized that it's absence has turned me off to Buying Fleetwood Mac's Songs, there's Always Going To Be A Huge Gaping Hole in my Musical Library! 😢😩😭😵😷💩
You’ve come to the right place. If you want deeper album cuts that were played heavily on radio when these albums came out, get the 2-disc VERY BEST OF FLEETWOOD MAC instead. There you will find “Landslide”, “The Chain”, “Gold Dust Woman” and other great songs plus nearly all these songs featured here AND the great and underrated “Skies The Limit". If you want the original studio version of “Big Love” download it individually on this collection or from TANGO IN THE NIGHT.
Where is “Mystery to Me”? “Bare Trees”? etc. etc. All of the great music before they got coked-out and boringly popular. Must be legal issues. Do yourself a favor folks, check out the albums before Stevie Nicks and Buckingham joined, wherever you can find them.
These guys are up there with the Eagles and Led Zepplin and AC/DC - they are iconic and unfortunately they just don't create like they used to (musicians, I mean.. don't hate, I am one, have been for 23 years now, and professional - well, I was anyway...) - no matter who you are, or how old you are, this music is soul nectar. Buy it. But I agree - they dropped the ball not including Landslide \m/
Greatest Hits got me hooked on Fleetwood Mac. That said, there are notable omissions from this collection. 1975's breakthrough "Fleetwood Mac" and even their magnum opus "Rumours" are surprisingly underrepresented on this compilation. Here are some examples of the hits that don't appear here. Landslide World Turning Monday Morning Secondhand News Never Going Back Again The Chain Gold Dust Woman The tracks I just listed alone could be released as another "Greatest Hits" by itself. The two disc greatest hits collection that is available would be the way to go, but the pacing and track listing on this comp. is great, if incomplete.
This album is amazing! Missing a few excellent staples from them such as landslide, the chain, seven wonders, but other than that it is a rewarding listen from start to finish. Some of the greatest and most talented voices in one group.
This greatest hits album provides a nice overview of some popular songs from the most commercially successful line-up of Fleetwood Mac (Fleetwood, J. McVie, C. McVie, Nicks, and Buckingham). It was released in 1988 after Buckingham left the band. Some gems haven't been included in this collection including "Landslide," and "World Turning" (from the white album), "The Chain" and "Second Hand News" and Gold Dust Woman (from Rumours, and "Think About Me" (from Tusk), but this collection is a good introduction to the band. I prefer listening to the songs in their original sequences, however. As for the editor's notes, Buckingham did not write "Don't Stop," Christine McVie did, and her other song that was mentioned is entitled "Little Lies."
Boy dang these fools huh? I only think they might finally figure it out!!! I can only be me ha ha!!! k. Now yo see ha ha. Gypsy my favourite song!!!!!!! That's me!! Ha ha and of coarse dreams. Me only me loves music. K. Best album. Believe in love please or love die's. Trust hard to find these day's
First, let me say this is a great starter collection. To those who complain its missing stuff from Peter Green (late 60s blues FM era, or Bob Welch era/Mystery To Me, etc stuff...this is a collection from the RUMOURS era lineup (1975-1987). So the earlier incarnations of the band aren't represented here. Even from the Rumours era, this merely scratches the surface as it doesn't include some minor hits the band had at this time, as well as key album tracks like Landslide, Second Hand News, The Chain and many many others. This collection also includes two new songs released for the album. Neither of which are particularly memorable. A better collection from the Rumours era would be The Very Best of FM, which came out a few years ago I believe.
