“Then Play On” was the last of Fleetwood Mac’s original albums featuring founder, guitarist Peter Green, who we just lost on July 25, 2020.
First released on September 19, 1969, Fleetwood Mac’s third studio album, “Then Play On (Celebration Edition),” now in pre-order, will be released on CD and vinyl on September 18. The deluxe, expanded edition of the album will feature all the original UK tracks, plus four bonus tracks. The CD includes a media book, while the 2-LP set will come with a 16 page book pack.
