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.”
