Fleetwood Mac "The Very Best Of" Arrives on iTunes / Amazon Jan 29th for the first time

"The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac (Remastered)" 
Available for the first time on iTunes & Amazon on January 29th!

The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac is a 2CD compilation album originally released in 2002 to promote the 2003 album Say You Will and subsequent world tour.  It was released as a double CD in the USA containing 36 songs, and as a single disc in the United Kingdom. It debuted on the Billboard 200 album chart at number 12 on 2 November 2002. It spent 42 weeks on the chart. It was certified gold on 12 November 2002, and platinum on 10 January 2003, by the RIAA.

The US version contained the highly successful Californian era of Fleetwood Mac's work (1975 onwards). It also featured the B-side "Silver Springs", the previously unreleased The Dance performance of "Go Insane", and several rare single remixes of key tracks, such as "Rhiannon" and "Sisters of the Moon".  The UK version of 2002 contained a few songs from the Peter Green-led blues era of Fleetwood Mac. 

In October 2009, the two-disc US version was released in the UK and many other territories in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, to coincide with the European and Australasian legs of the group's 'Unleashed' world tour. The re-released version features a different picture on the outer slipcase to previous releases. The re-release has proven to be as successful in the UK as the previous 2002 release, and it re-entered the UK album chart at #6 (the 2002 edition had peaked at #7). Sales of both the 2002 edition and the 2009 edition combined have achieved quadruple platinum status (shipping of 1,200,000) by March 2010. The album had spent 100 weeks in the UK Top 100 by June 2011. It reached #1 on the Australian ARIA Catalogue Chart in December 2009, and achieved platinum status in New Zealand within only 5 weeks after release there.

This release marks the first time the album has been made available digitally in the US on iTunes or Amazon.

Most people probably agree that Disc 2, tracks 15-19 are out of place here, as they're far from the band's "very best."

But tracks 15-19 are good. And when they were good, they were very good...I'd rather hear any of those songs than what is played on a regular basis on the radio today.

Go to Best Buy and pick-up the CD package. A remastered mp3 is absurd. Why remaster when the mp3 creation is reducing the sound quality by virtue of the conversion process that produces it.

"As Long As You Follow" is musically stunning. Don't understand the comnent about it being inferior.

The video is visually pretty as well. Stevie looks stunning.

"Paper Doll" on the other hand........

Didn't use the term "inferior"; just pointed out that it (they) didn't qualify as "very best." Of the major bands of their era, Fleetwood Mac put out fewer albums than any other I can think of. Only 5 as a full on studio band over long 12 year span. It's not surprise a 2 disc "very best of" would grasp at straws, yet let's be realistic here. "Dreams" alongside "Paper Doll"? Really?

I also thing the SKIES THE LIMIT is a very charming song, but it sounds a little forced and over-produced compared to what Lindsey might have done with it.

Well, call me a freak, because I love "Paper doll". Hmm...
