Individual ressiue from the 4 LP box set created by Reprise Records and Rhino, Fleetwood Mac: 1969-1972

Lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering

Housed in authentically reproduced packages, including gatefolds for Then Play On and Kiln House

Fleetwood Mac are one of rock's most enduring, beloved and successful bands, through several decades and changing line-ups they have steadily amounted more than 10 million album sales worldwide.

Future Games was the band's first album with American guitarist Bob Welch and also saw the official introduction of Christine McVie as a full band member, moving even further towards a folk-pop sound.

Future Games is an individually reissued 140-gram pressing from the 4 LP box set created by Reprise Records and Rhino, Fleetwood Mac: 1969-1972. Four complete albums — Then Play On (1969), Kiln House (1970), Future Games (1971) and Bare Trees (1972) are each housed in authentically reproduced packages, including gatefolds for Then Play On and Kiln House and single sleeves for Future Games and Bare Trees. To ensure superb sound quality, Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering cut the lacquers for all four albums.

The band's shift toward pop and folk styles continued on Future Games with songs such as "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.
