    My favorite album is Rumours although Fleetwood Mac is a close second followed by their live album The Dance
    On another note did you know they are going on tour again and releasing a new album I hope I can get tickets when they come over to the east coast in March :D

    yes? do i need to draw a diagram?

    the Green era is the original, blues-rock Fleetwood Mac, he was the one who got the key pieces (John McVie and Mick Fleetwood) in place and got the ball rolling for them


    but the Nicks era, damn its good

    True although the Nicks era lost a good amount of their original blues-rock they released their greatest albums during that era and I hope their new album will be good and hoping I can get tickets as well to their concert (gotta save some coin myself) if I can I bet it will be epic they truly are one of my favorite bands (and both my parents as well)

    The only reason I think I like them so much is because of my parents they exposed me to all their music when I was a kid and now I love their music just like my parents (seems weird when I think about it though)

    Just because it's the original doesn't mean it's classic. But just because it's your favorite doesn't mean it's classic either! (Just saying)

    The Chain is probably the 4th on my list

    On a side note: we need more people to post in this thread because we need more opinions because I want to help compile a history of Fleetwood Mac with all their greatest songs from each era

    That would be great I guess you could also, put a 4th era which is the current from the start of the 90s so you could use three albums for a 4th era technically 4 considering they are releasing a new album

    I'm more familiar with material from the Buckingham/Nicks era. Some of my favorites are "Dreams", "The Chain", "Gold Dust Woman", "Go Your Own Way", "As Long As You Follow", "Bleed To Love Her" and "Over My Head".

    I have heard "Hypnotized" from the Welch era and like that one a lot. (He's got a couple solo songs I like too).

    I think that's kind of funny when you sit down and try to think of your favorite songs from different groups how they've changed over time. I know my favorite songs from some of my favorite groups change constantly. Might be a cool topic for another thread for somebody to start.

    I'm familiar with all eras except the Peter Green and Time album ones.

    The Bob Welch era was good, Bare Trees being one example. Speaking of Future Games, I don't recall enough of it to fairly judge it.

    The Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks era was great, especially with Tusk and Tango in the Night.

    I love Christine McVie. She added a special touch to their overall sound. Almost everything she wrote for this band was simply beautiful.

    I've been meaning to dive into Fleetwood Mac's discography for a while now after hearing Go Your Own Way on rb2. Where's the best place to start? Go Your Own Way is becoming one of my favourites, and I know my dad has Rumours on vinyl which I plan to dig out.
    Where do I go from there? :)

    well, Rumours and Fleetwood Mac (self-titled) 1975 (they have 2 self-titled) will get you into the Buckingham-Nicks era, then you can move either into the Bob Welch era with albums like Mystery to Me and Bare Trees, or delve deeper into the current era with Mirage and Tango in the Night

    with the Peter Green era I would start with Mr. Wonderful

    Thanks, I'm really enjoying Rumors at the moment. I will definitely have to check out the rest of their discography.
