This Incredible Album From the '70s is Now Available on Vinyl! A Must Have LP!!!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 26/500!
A fine offering from one of England's oldest bands, this album mixes a
generous blend of pop and rock that appeals to both sexes: Women like it because
it is "listenable", men like it because most of the songs are borderline
romantic without being mushy.
With Rumours, Fleetwood Mac produced one of the most celebrated albums (and one
of the best-selling albums) of all time. While Fleetwood Mac had finally
attained their long-desired commercial success, the band was fraying apart
behind the scenes. The McVies divorced in 1976, and the Buckingham and Nicks'
romance ended shortly afterward. The internal tensions formed the basis for the
songs on their best album, Rumours. Released in the spring of 1977, Rumours
became a blockbuster success, topping the American and British charts and
generating the Top Ten singles "Go Your Own Way," "Dreams," "Don't Stop," and
"You Make Loving Fun." It would eventually sell over 17 million copies in the
U.S. alone, making it the second biggest-selling album of all time. Rumours
reads like a greatest hits package rather than an incredible record. This album
is a “must have” release in every sense of the word.
"The band's two romantic couples — bassist John and singer-keyboard player Christine McVie, who were married; guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks, who were not — broke up during the protracted sessions for Rumours. This lent a highly charged, confessional aura to such songs as Buckingham's "Go Your Own Way," Nicks' "Dreams," Christine's "Don't Stop" and the group-composed anthem to betrayal, "The Chain." The Mac's catchy exposes, produced with California-sunshine polish, touched a nerve; Rumours, a landmark Seventies pop album, ruled Billboard's album chart for thirty-one weeks." - www.rollingstone.com
