Fleetwood mac: Greatest Hits

Mat Snow, Q, January 1989

A GREATEST HITS without 'Oh Well'? 'Man Of The World'? 'The Green Manalishi'? A Fleetwood Mac Greatest Hits without, for goodness' sake, 'Albatross'?!? Apart from record company wrangles over F. Mac's early back catalogue, there is a good argument for saying that the Fleetwood Mac most of us know and love only started in January 1975 with the recruitment of a pair of hippy refugees whose musical career had started in a group called Fritz back in the same year that the very first Mac line-up trod the boards, 1967.
