Rhino celebrates early Fleetwood Mac catalog with new box sets

Rhino is poised to reissue the band’s early catalog: Fleetwood Mac: 1969-1974 and Fleetwood Mac: 1973-1974

On September 4, Rhino will release two Fleetwood Mac box sets: the 8-CD 1969-1974 and 4-LP with 7″vinyl 1973-1974.

1969-1974 includes Fleetwood Mac’s seven albums between the years of 1969 and 1974. The seven studio albums are Then Play On, Kiln House, Future Games, Bare Trees, Penguin, Mystery to Me, and Heroes Are Hard to Find. Each disc includes the full-length album, along with alternate, live, and single versions (expect Penguin) — some of which are making their first appearance on CD. The eighth disc features the band’s live performance at The Record Plant in Sausalito on December 15, 1974. 

1973-1974 picks up where 1969-1972 left off (released in 2013), featuring Penguin, Mystery to Me, Heroes Are Hard to Find, and Fleetwood Mac Live from The Red Plant 12-15-74. The release also includes a mono promo edit of the Mystery to Me track “For Your Love” and the outtake “Good Things (Come to Those Who Wait).” A limited-edition colored-vinyl version of Fleetwood Mac 1973-1974 will also be available.

Fleetwood Mac 1973-1974

During this transitional era, Fleetwood Mac went through a series of notable guitar players (Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Bob Weston, and Bob Welch), as the band moved from a blues to contemporary pop-rock sound. Late guitarist Bob Welch led the band through much of the new musical direction, relocating the band to the vibrant Los Angeles music scene in the early 1970s. (Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham had made a similar relocation to the area around this time, before joining Fleetwood Mac at the end of 1974.) Welch sang lead and played guitar on five of the seven albums from 1971 to 1974, contributing radio hits “Sentimental Lady” and “Hypnotized.”
