The boxed set's a little pricey, and besides, this CD has the goods: Dreams; Rhiannon; Go Your Own Way; Tusk; You Make Loving Fun; Little Lies; Gypsy , and more, including Bill and Hillary's favorite, Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow .
These are the greatest hits of the version of Big Mac that produced Hits with a capital H! While pre-Stevie Nicks-Lindsey Buckingham versions of the group charted in the U.K. five times between 1968 and 1973, the post-blues-rock edition of the band reached unprecedented commercial heights beginning with "Rhiannon," a No. 5 smash in the spring of 1976. It's on this 16-track solid-gold set, along with the rest of the hits up through 1988's "Everywhere." A long version of "Sara" and some bonus tracks are included for extra value. --Steven Stolder

Fleetwood Mac: Greatest Hits is not an exception to this rule. In fact, in my opinion, there are at least two tracks missing from this collection: Landslide and The Chain, which are, and I think you will agree, a couple of the band's most famous songs, and by not being included here, lessen the impact of the CD a little bit.
Having said that, this is a great collection indeed, with some amazing work and some really great, classic tunes, like Rhiannon, Don't stop, As long as you follow, Go your own way and Dreams. This is classic Fleetwood Mac, mostly from the Lindsey Buckingham-Stevie Nicks era.
But if you really want to have a better collection of the Mac's work, you should skip this CD and get the two CD The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac which includes 36 tracks. I would have given 5 stars to this CD if the newer collection didn't exist, but as it is, I should say that it's better than this one if only because it includes the two tracks named before, and some of the stuff that came after the release of the first collection.
And it's a pity, but here in Chile we don't get enough Fleetwood Mac in the radio stations. "Little Lies", "Go Your Own Way", "Sara" and "Dreams" were the only Fleetwood Mac songs I actually recognized before I got this CD (as a birthday gift coming from my sister), and the omissions made me ignore completely that songs I knew like "Big Love", "Seven Wonders", "Gypsy", "Everywhere" and (most notably) "Don't Stop" were from the same band!
Guess I was missing a lot. This CD is a great compilation of good songs. Although the booklet misses the composer credits and some of the history of the band (that would be necessary for beginners: I had to take it from the Internet), the music and, particularly, the lyrics, are stunning. You can hardly find a band talking SO deeply and sicerely about their own problems like Fleetwood Mac (and I'm always talking about the "Rumours" line-up). The big loves, the dreams, the little lies, the rumours, the crystal visions, the feelings from the inner souls of the composers are showing here, like they were opening their hearts for us to see.
That's why Stevie Nicks' songs are always removing and special. "Dreams", a particular masterpiece, showcases Stevie's simple, sometimes painful, sometimes bitter, but always pretty poetry.Read more ›

This is a great album. It is not a comprehensive compilation and if you're a big fan you will still need other albums. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Andrew
Good mix of Fleet Wood. I recommend getting a Rumours first thoughPublished 20 months ago by Dexter
