His ‘Solo Anthology – The Best of Lindsey Buckingham’, which was released on October 5, is a comprehensive record of this illustrious career.

‘Solo Anthology – The Best of Lindsey Buckingham’ includes album, live and alternate versions of some of Lindsey’s celebrated solo albums including cuts from ‘Law and Order,’ ‘Go Insane,’ ‘Out of the Cradle,’ ‘Under the Skin,’ ‘Gift of Screws’ and ‘Seeds We Sow’ and incorporates songs from his collaborative album with Christine McVie, released in 2017. The anthology features Buckingham’s film work with ”Holiday Road” and “Dancin Across The USA” from the 1983 motion picture soundtrack to National Lampoon’s Vacation and “Time Bomb Town” from 1985’s Back to the Future. Live versions of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” and “Go Your Own Way” round out the album, but the most thrilling tracks come in the form of two new songs that have never before been released, “Hunger” and “Ride This Road.”

J.S. Ondara will serve as the lone support act. The Kenya native has been named an NPR Music Slingshot Artist (a collective effort among tastemaking NPR member stations to introduce exceptional up-and-coming artists). In addition, Rolling Stone Country is featuring Ondara amongst their “Artists You Need To Know.”
Ondara’s forthcoming debut, ‘Tales of America,’ is set for release February 1 on Verve Forecast. “It is essentially a documentation of my time in America,” Ondara explains. “A deliberation on the times, and a search for wisdom and the American dream.”
The completely acoustic album was produced by Grammy-nominated Mike Viola (Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis) and recorded at Boulevard Recording and East West Studios in Los Angeles. All lyrics were written by Ondara and the album features collaborations with artists including Andrew Bird, Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes and Joey Ryan of The Milk Carton Kids.
