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.
With the departure of Peter Green, Fleetwood Mac moved towards a more melodic pop sound on Kiln House, Christine McVie was present at the recording sessions and contributed backing vocals and cover art, but did not become a full member of the band until shortly after the album's completion.
Kiln House 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 set follows the band through an early transitional period. With Kiln House, Fleetwood Mac began moving toward a more melodic pop sound on songs such as "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) and McVie.
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.
