AllMusic Review by

To promote Out of the Cradle, Lindsey Buckingham recorded this 46-minute not-for-sale CD for radio and press exploitation. On it, he reviews his career dating back to the Buckingham Nicks album in 1973 (the inclusion of "Stephanie" marks the first time any of that record has turned up on CD). Fleetwood Mac hits like "Go Your Own Way" and "Big Love" are included, as well as Buckingham's three chart singles, "Trouble," "Holiday Road" (otherwise available only on the National Lampoon's Vacation soundtrack), and "Go Insane," plus three tracks from Out of the Cradle. In essence, this is Lindsey Buckingham's greatest hits, complete with the artist's commentary, and if it were available commercially, would be his pick album.
