Lindsey Buckingham Box Set Coming

Share This:

The first three solo albums from Lindsey Buckingham will be the subject of a 2024 box set. 20th Century Lindsey, features the studio albums Law and Order (1981), Go Insane (1984), and Out of the Cradle (1992), all with audio remastered in 2017 from the original master tapes. They’re joined by 20th Century Rarities, an eight-song compilation of non-album tracks containing hard-to-find mixes and soundtrack contributions, like “Time Bomb Town” (Back to the Future, 1985) and “Twisted” – his duet with Stevie Nicks (Twister, 1996). The collection, from Rhino, will be released on August 16 on CD [pre-order in the U.S. here and in the U.K. here].

From the May 8 announcement: When Fleetwood Mac finished touring for Tusk in 1980, the guitarist, singer and songwriter wasted no time jumping back into the studio, recording nearly all the instruments for his 1981 solo debut, Law and Order. Before the turn of the century, Buckingham added two more albums to his discography – Go Insane and Out of the Cradle – along with a string of memorable songs for films, including “Holiday Road” from National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983).

“Slow Dancing” (Extended Version) was previously only released in Europe as a 12” single in 1984. The track makes its streaming debut nearly 40 years to the date of its original release.

20th Century Lindsey explores Buckingham’s distinctive songwriting, intricate guitar work, and innovative production across dozens of tracks, including stellar songs like “Wrong,” “Countdown,” and the Top 10 smash “Trouble” – with Fleetwood Mac bandmate and drummer Mick Fleetwood.
