All of Rumours, minus "The Chain" and "Never Going Back Again", plus the beautiful "Everywhere".

I'll show myself the door now.

I agree w/you (also on those two tracks).....

In no particular order:

1) "Rattlesnake Shake"
2) "Black Magic Woman"
3) "Green Manalishi"
4) "Albatross"
5) "Future Games"
6) "Oh Well" (part 1 & 2)
7) "Go Your Own Way"
8) "Miles Away"
9) "Hold Me"
10) "Gypsy"

I'll come up with a top 10 tomorrow. Yes, all eras.

This is one of my favourite songs. Child Of Mine from the Bare Trees album. The last album to feature Kirwan. Cracking song. They shifted to a more 'mainstream' sound after this album. Downhill in my opinion...

I love "Child of Mine" as well..... It was awfully difficult to narrow myself down to ten to encompass all eras..... I still wish we knew about Kirwan today.....

The band's best album Tusk is getting the same treatment that Rumours did a few years ago, maybe even better I dunno.

A 5-CD deluxe edition featuring many unreleased demos, live tracks and an 'Alternate Tusk' :
Tusk remastered
An alternate version of the complete album consisted of session outtakes, most of which have never been released
A selection of singles, demos and remixes
Unreleased performances from the band’s 1979 Tusk tour with selections from concerts in London, Tucson, and St. Louis.
5.1 surround mix - DVD
Tusk – 2LP 180-gram vinyl

A more digestable 3CD set with unreleased demos outtakes and the sort. A gorgeous heavyweight vinyl box set etc etc

Yes, Tusk is best. But don't worry, Then Play On is second.

I also love the Bob Welch era and it is so vastly underrated... "Future Games" was splendid....."Bare Trees", "Penguin" and "Mystery to Me" contain several solid moments between them as well.... but that definitely did get overshadowed once Buckingham/Nicks came on board!

Bare Trees is a good album but it's all about the Peter Green era for me. Yesterday I downloaded a LOAD of bootlegs of shows played from 1967-1970 and they are outstanding. Such an underrated live band in the grand scheme of things. But the Green/Spencer era was exquisite on every level.

And don't forget to mention Danny Kirwan. Him and Peter Green blended in so well together. True, Kirwan somewhat forced Spencer more into the background (mainly in terms of guitar playing), but also Kirwan's vocals added another dimension to them as well. I still favor that era more than the others!

I don't have any of the albums, but I like the hit singles from the Peter Green era. They were very much at the cutting edge of the time.

My parents really loved all Fleetwood Mac eras as well..in fact..they owned Fleetwood Mac in Chicago and I would listen to that from time to time..... Some stunning work on there indeed!

It remains their most interesting period to my eyes. They changed record labels twice - firstly to get more mainstream, then secondly because Immediate were in financial woes.

Just unfortunate what became of Green, Spencer, and eventually Kirwan......So glad though Green at least managed to battle his demons and recovered some and Spencer is no longer involved with that cult and their senseless acts!
