3/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.0
An oddity.
Review written by becca, August 9th, 2004

The main reason to find this would be to have eight of the twelve tracks from Christine McVie's debut 1970 solo album under the name Christine Perfect which are very worthwhile. You also get a mixed bag of Peter Green era Mac tracks which will mostly be redundant if you have even a couple pre-Reprise albums from that period. I would reccomend the CD version for the Perfect tracks mainly which are fairly hard to find on CD.
