Greatest Hits (1988)

Greatest Hits is Fleetwood Mac’s second retrospective release with the 1975 group lineup, featuring the group’s most popular singles from 1975 to 1987 (such as “Sara,” which makes its full-length debut on CD). It includes two new songs, Christine McVie’s “As Long As You Follow” and Stevie Nicks’ “No Questions Asked.” Both songs feature vocals from new members Billy Burnette and Rick Vito, who replaced departing guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. In the liner notes, the band dedicates the collection to Buckingham, with “all our love.”

Release

On November 15, 1988, Warner Bros. Records released Greatest Hits on CD, cassette, and vinyl formats. The international edition featured a slightly different track selection (see below). The single “As Long As You Follow,” with an accompanying music video, helped promote the collection and reached number 43 on the Billboard Top 100 Singles chart and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart. On March 16, 2000, the RIAA certified Greatest Hits 8X platinum for the shipment of eight million units to retailers.

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019

The latest 4CD package, out October 25, compiles tracks from the previously released 2004 and 2013 reissues of the album. The package is a slimmed-down version of the 6-disc […]
  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
