Welcome to this week's Release Round-Up! Fleetwood Mac, 50 Years: Don't Stop (Warner Bros./Rhino) 3CD: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada 1CD: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada 5LP: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada In celebration of its 50 years, Fleetwood Mac is issuing a new career-spanning collection featuring 50 songs on either 3 CDs or 5 LPs. These include hits, favorites, and a smattering of rarities such as the CD premiere of 2013's "Sad Angel"
Fleetwood Mac hasn't stopped thinking about tomorrow. The venerable group takes off in October on a new tour featuring the band debuts of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn, following the shock departure of Lindsey Buckingham earlier in the year. To coincide with the tour, however, the Mac is taking a look back on 50 years of music with a new 50-song collection on 3 CDs or 5 LPs. 50 Years: Don't Stop arrives from Warner Bros. Records and Rhino on November 16, along with a single-CD distillation.
Fleetwood Mac shocked fans earlier this year by announcing the dismissal of longtime singer/songwriter/producer/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham just as a new tour had been confirmed. Now, Buckingham is back on his feet with a new collection and a tour of his own which will launch just days later than his old band's. Solo Anthology - The Best of Lindsey Buckingham, due October 5 from Rhino Records, will be available as a 3-disc set on CD and digitally and also as a single disc "highlights"
Take away all the artifice and ephemera of the new deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac's 1975 self-titled album (Reprise R2 559454) and you're still left with an intriguing and endlessly challenging question: how? How did a British blues band with only fleeting chart success in their home country metamorphose into one of the greatest rock bands of the 20th century's back half, architects of 18 Top 40 hits and eight platinum or multiplatinum records? And how did they do so with their ninth lineup? As

Over the last few years, Fleetwood Mac and Warner Music have worked together to expand their most "classic rock" era--the albums recorded with the line-up of Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood between 1975 and 1987. After deluxe editions of Rumours, Tusk, Mirage and Tango In The Night, the group finally unites the chain with a new expansion of their self-titled 1975 album, the first to feature this line-up, due in January 2018. Before the album
The music of Fleetwood Mac could fairly be said to define the 1970s - in all its style, tumult, and excess. Where did that leave the union of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham once a new decade emerged? 1982's Mirage found Fleetwood Mac trying to recapture the magic of 1977's epochal Rumours, and succeeding in large part. Yet Mirage felt as if it firmly had one foot planted in the previous decade. With its belated follow-up, 1987's Tango in the
Welcome to this week's Release Round-Up, featuring some of the most hotly-anticipated sets of the year!

Record Store Day has been an institution for a decade now, so leave it to this year's 10th anniversary event to be one of the biggest! We've already shone the spotlight on releases by David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Prince, Omnivore Recordings and Legacy Recordings; now, it's time to take a look at Warner Music's incredibly generous lineup. Over 30 titles will be featured from the label group at independent record stores on Saturday, April 22. There's really something for everyone: vintage 12"
Three decades after it was first released--and following similarly expansive editions for three of the group's earlier albums from this period--Warner Bros. Records and Rhino will expand and reissue Fleetwood Mac's 14th studio album, Tango in the Night. The last studio album from the band's modern classic line-up of Lindsey Buckingham (vocals/guitar), Stevie Nicks (vocals), Christine McVie (vocals/keyboards), John McVie (bass) and Mick Fleetwood (drums), Tango in the Night marked the group's
When Fleetwood Mac entered the Château d'Hérouville studio outside Paris at the dawn of the 1980s, the band had one goal in mind: to create a commercial pop success in the mold of their record-breaking Rumours. Not everyone in the quintet was sold on this goal, necessarily, especially after the quantum leap forward from Rumours into the beautiful madness that was Tusk. But while Tusk sold four million copies, it couldn't help but be viewed as a disappointment after the world domination of its

What do Deep Purple, The Move, Hawkwind, Fleetwood Mac and The Yardbirds all have in common? Though each of those five bands carved out distinct musical identities, all incorporated elements of psychedelia in their early hard-rock explorations. A new 3-CD box set from Cherry Red's Grapefruit imprint offers an in-depth chronicle of the music that planted the seeds of progressive rock and metal. I'm a Freak, Baby is, as per its subtitle, A Journey Through the British Heavy Psych and Hard Rock
On the heels of last year's deluxe box set of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk, Warner Bros. Records has just announced the legendary band's Mirage will be next to get the lavish treatment. On July 29, the label will unveil the 1982 chart-topping smash in a variety of physical formats: Deluxe Edition (3 CD/1 DVD/1 LP): Original album remastered, plus B-sides and rarities; the original album on vinyl; a disc of live performances; and a 5.1 mix on DVD Expanded Edition (2 CD): Original album
Tomorrow, Saturday, April 16, music fans and collectors will flock to their local independent record stores worldwide to celebrate both the sounds on those familiar round black platters and the cherished opportunity to shop for music in a physical retail environment.

Welcome to this week's Release Round-Up, featuring a host of titles on CD and vinyl! Fleetwood Mac, In Concert (Warner Bros./Rhino) (Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada) This 3-LP concert album features 22 live recordings from Fleetwood Mac's 1979-1980 tour, originally presented in December on the Tusk Deluxe Edition box set, for the very first time on vinyl.

Last December, Fleetwood Mac expanded its seminal album Tusk to box set proportions. Among the material premiering on the Tusk: Deluxe Edition was an all-new 2-CD concert album featuring 22 previously unreleased live recordings from the band's 1979-1980 tour. On March 4, Fleetwood Mac: In Concert will arrive for the first time as a stand-alone vinyl release. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl with Tusk-inspired artwork, its three LPs will be presented in a tri-fold jacket. The music heard on In
Can an album that sold four million copies be fairly called a cult classic? If the answer is yes, that album would certainly be Fleetwood Mac's Tusk. One of the most willfully unconventional albums ever made, the follow-up to Rumours nonetheless went multi-platinum. Nobody expected the band that had already morphed from blues-rock to the epitome of California pop-rock (and everything in between) to defiantly go the "art-rock" route, yet that's precisely what Mick Fleetwood, John McVie,

Those aren't just rumo(u)rs! After one week of premature reporting all around the 'net, Rhino has confirmed the long-awaited news this morning: Fleetwood Mac's 1979 magnum opus Tusk is coming in a 5-CD/1-DVD/2-LP Deluxe Edition, a 3-CD Expanded Edition and a 1-CD remaster on December 4!

Since making his big-screen debut as a writer with the 1982 comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High, onetime teenaged Rolling Stone scribe Cameron Crowe has made music an integral part of his films - and we're not just talking about Almost Famous! Every one of his movies as writer-director, from 1989's Say Anything... to 2011's We Bought a Zoo, has had its share of musical highlights. His next film, Aloha, should prove to be no exception. On May 26, Legacy Recordings and Madison Gate Records
On September 29, Fleetwood Mac kicks off its sold-out On with the Show tour in Minneapolis, Minnesota, marking the band’s first tour with returning member Christine McVie in sixteen years. The same day, Stevie Nicks will unveil her latest solo album, but it’s one with a twist. 24 Karat Gold – Songs from the Vault features songs penned by Nicks between 1969 and 1995, but rather than presenting archival recordings of the tracks, all have been newly recorded by the singer in Nashville and Los
It never should have worked. Since its formation in 1967, Fleetwood Mac had endured radical personnel changes, a stylistic shift from blues to rock, even a challenge from a "fake Mac" claiming to be the band in concert. When guitarist-songwriter-vocalist Bob Welch became the latest member to pass through the Fleetwood Mac revolving door, Mick Fleetwood and the husband and wife team of John and Christine McVie invited two young Californians to bolster the line-up. Lindsey Buckingham and his
