3-CD And 5-LP Collections Celebrate The Legendary Band's 50th Anniversary
Fleetwood Mac will celebrate a half century of music this fall with a new 50-song collection that is the first to explore the group's entire career, from its early days playing the blues, to its global success as one of the most-enduring and best-selling bands in rock history. 50 YEARS-DON'T STOP will be available as both a 50-track, 3-CD set ($34.98) and 5-LP vinyl set ($99.98) on November 16. A 20-track single CD version ($18.98) will also be available on the same day. Both versions will be available on digital download and streaming services as well.
The new compilation touches on every era in the band's rich history and offers a deep dive into Fleetwood Mac's expansive catalog by bringing together essential tracks released between 1968 and 2013. 50 YEARS-DON'T STOP also highlights the talented musicians who have recorded under the Fleetwood Mac banner over the years, including Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremey Spencer, John McVie, Danny Kirwan, Christine McVie, Bob Welch, Bob Weston, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Billy Burnette, Rick Vito, Dave Mason, and Bekka Bramlett. The collection also features rare photos from the band's career along with new liner notes by veteran music writer David Wild.
The second disc focuses on Fleetwood Mac's most commercially successful period with music from a trio of multi-platinum releases - Fleetwood Mac (1975), Rumours (1977), and Tusk(1979) - plus the acclaimed concert album Live (1980). Together they've sold millions of copies worldwide, with Rumours alone selling more than 40 million copies. Several of the band's most beloved tracks come from these albums including "Rhiannon," "Say You Love Me," "Go Your Own Way," "Don't Stop," "You Make Loving Fun," and the #1 single "Dreams."
The final disc explores songs the band released between 1982 and 2013, including major U.S. hits like, "Hold Me" (#4), "Gypsy" (#12), "Big Love" (#5), "Little Lies" (#4), and "Everywhere" (#14). Also featured are several rarities ("Paper Doll" and "As Long As You Follow"); a live version of "Silver Springs" from the multi-platinum concert album, The Dance (1997); and "Sad Angel" from the band's most recent release, Extended Play (2013).
