Lindsey is an amazing player and is quite the show in concert.
His production skills are like the 6th member of Fleetwood Mac and those records that FM released in the 1990's without Lindsey's skills suffer greatly from his not being in there. Dave Mason, was on the "Time" album and as Dave is great in his own solo world he was not a good fit with Fleetwood Mac.

Nice! I love all three of those songs. Love That Burns is a particular favorite. That slow blues is what Peter excelled at. Great singing and tasty playing. Future Games is a great song and record. Amazing how they kept adapting after each songwriter left and created a new sound. World Turning is such a cool song. Love that lick Lindsey repeats. Nice intense build. Really cool song. Lindsey is such a great guitar player, very unique, memorable and rockin'.

There are three Fleetwood Mac's:
1. Peter Green's FM from 1967 thru his departure in 1970
2. The "Middle Years" of Danny/Bob Welch that began in 1971 and ended in late 1974 when Bob left.
3. The Buckingham/Nicks years of 1975 through today.

Each era of Fleetwood Mac has it's merits and the fan-base is different as well for these three editions of FM. Except for John McVie and Mick Fleetwood that remain the link from 1967 through to today these are really three different groups with three different music styles presented.

McDonalds' newest burgers:

1) The Fleetwood Mac - For the connoisseur with discriminating taste, a Peter Green era top sirloin burger with superior taste.

2) The Fleetwood Mac Cheese Burger - For the less (or no) discriminating taste, a post-Peter Green era ground beef & soy filler burger with lots of cheeeeez.

I saw Peter Green at Las Vegas a few years ago. Great band----great music.
I've been a F'Wood Mac fan for a long time.

Tim do you like that set better than the original single disks? Is it a significant improvement, I like those albums very much.

They were good players but found their blues stiff and sterile. No soul. Green is technically good though.

So I'll say it here: Why hasn't Warner Bros. released a properly remastered "Then Play On"?

The best mastered version I've heard is from the Original Album Series that includes the last five albums before the Lindsey/Stevie period, from "Then Play On" through "Mystery To Me". It is available on Amazon at a pretty good price. While it is not 'remastered', as such, it is taken from the best source available when it was manufactured.

I first heard Fleetwood Mac after Santana's hit, "Black Magic Woman" came out. I heard that it had been written by Peter Green, so I looked into his band and became a fan. A few years later I bought most of their albums from the early years and eventually, when they released a boxset, I bought it and I now have every album with Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Christine Perfect and Bob Welch on CD. The band changed a lot through the years, but, since I have very eclectic taste in music, I consider every album worth listening to occasionally. Sometimes I'm in the mood for Peter's band, other times, Bob's band and I listen to Lindsey's band more often than I like to admit. Every version is great, and you can't say that about many bands that changed members on a regular basis.

Bob Welsh has said many times that he has played "Oh Well" more times on stage than Peter Green did and I've heard his version of that one and he tears into as good as Peter. Lindsey as a player is brilliant as well. Fleetwood & McVie know how to find a decent lead guiar player and Green is excellent but he is one of many in Fleetwood Mac.

Why should the drummer and the bass player (the two guys for whom the band is named) change the name of their band because a nutcase like Green bolted? I also disagree that Fleetwood Mac "died" when Green left. One of the hardest things to do in music is play GOOD pop. Lindsey Buckingham certainly does that, and has been doing so for nearly 40 years. In his way, he's just as vital as Green was.

I agree, Fleetwood Mac died when Green left. What was left was another band altogether with a completely different style. They SHOULD have changed their name.

I choose to look at Fleetwood Mac as three (at least) separate bands, completely different, all with something to say, but each with a distinct and unique palate and voice, all to enjoyed for their widely different music....

Of the early Fleetwood Mac records I enjoyed English Rose and parts of Then Play On but, later albums with Bob Welch and some of the Buckingham/Nicks records have some great moments found on them as well. Every version of Fleetwood Mac has it's merits not just the Peter Green years.

Other than knowing what will sell well among the masses, I've never seen "making Hits" as a sign of any real talent.

EvenSteven says:
You can almost see a parallel with a band like the Byrds & FM in terms of career.
Both bands have had to pick themselves up dust off after departures of key members.
& inevitably the sound & direction of both groups did change but continue to make hits.
That's a combination of luck, will & talent.
I still like the "Green" era best but a guy like Bob Welsh was truly under rated & kept them afloat (post Green) until they hit platinum status.

re: "Certainly if blues are your thing"

I think it's safe to say while Peter was around Fleetwood Mac was "Blues-Rock", after he left they were "Pop-Rock". In my opinion that's a real step it would be for any band who were at the top of their game quality-wise. I don't blame Mac "too" much, he had to do what he had to do in order to save the group and keep food on the table.

Stevign, Certainly if blues are your thing the post- Peter/Jeremy years have little to offer. However, I think many of those albums are very good and Bare Trees is brilliant.
