FLEETWOOD MAC: 1969-1972 features four complete albums _ Then Play On (1969), Kiln House (1970), Future Games (1971) and Bare Trees (1972) _ housed in a striking black slipcase. To ensure superb sound quality, Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering cut the lacquers for all four albums. The records look as good as they sound thanks to authentically reproduced packages, including gatefolds for Then Play On and Kiln House and single sleeves for Future Games and Bare Trees.

Fleetwood Mac was already a popular blues band in 1969 when they released Then Play On, the group's stellar third studio album. It was the first with guitarist-songwriter Danny Kirwan and ultimately its last with founding member Peter Green. The album's powerful mix of blues and rock includes standout tracks like –Rattlesnake Shake," –Searching For Madge" and –Coming Your Way."

The set follows the band through an early transitional period. With Kiln House, Fleetwood Mac began moving toward a more melodic pop sound on songs like –Mission Bell" and –One Together." At the time, the band included: Jeremy Spencer (guitar, vocals, piano), Kirwan (guitar, vocals), John McVie (bass) and Mick Fleetwood (drums). Christine McVie was at the recording sessions and contributed backing vocals and the album's cover art, but she did not join the band until shortly after the album was finished.

The band's shift toward pop and folk styles continued on Future Games with songs like –Show Me A Smile" and –Morning Rain." This marks the first Fleetwood Mac album with Christine McVie as a full band member as well as the Mac debut of Bob Welch on guitar.

The line-up stayed the same for Bare Trees, which boasts a consistently strong collection of songs like McVie's –Spare Me A Little Of Your Love," Kirwan's –Dust" and Welch's –Sentimental Lady." Although Kirwan was a dominant figure during the recording, penning half of the songs, this would ultimately be his last appearance on a Fleetwood Mac album.
