As Long As You Follow (as made famous by Fleetwood Mac)

“As Long as You Follow” is a song by the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac. Written and sung by band member Christine McVie, and her then-husband Eddy Quintela, the song was one of two new tracks on the band’s 1988 greatest hits album.

Released as a single on 28 November 1988, the song reached number 66 on the UK Singles Chart late in the year.[1] It narrowly missed the Top 40 in the United States, peaking at number 43 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the early part of 1989; however, the song did spend one week at number 1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart in January 1989.[2]

The B-side to “As Long as You Follow”‘s individually sold cassette tape single is a live version of the band’s 1969 song, “Oh Well”, which peaked at number 2 in the UK when originally released. This live version was recorded at a 1987 Fleetwood Mac concert at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, California (filmed as the Tango In The Night concert video), and featured lead vocals by new band member Billy Burnette. The 12-inch and CD single formats further included the original 1977 studio version of the Stevie Nicks track “Gold Dust Woman”, as featured on the 1977 album Rumours. The cover sleeve is identical to its parent album, Greatest Hits.
