A nice copy of a scarce colored vinyl Fleetwood Mac LP. This LP is quite a bit harder to find than the white vinyl issue of Rumours that came out in the Netherlands the same year.
Background: In 1978, record companies around the world issued a number of older and then-new titles on colored vinyl as limited edition collector’s items. Many of these titles were widely imported in the U.S. where they were found in the “import” bins of major record stores.
Released in 1975, Fleetwood Mac was the first LP by the band to feature then-new members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.
The LP became their most successful album to date, reaching #1 on the U.S. charts and selling more than seven million copies.
Allmusic.com gave Fleetwood Mac a 5 star review:
Fleetwood Mac represents not just the rebirth of the band, but in effect a second debut for the group — the introduction of a band that would dominate the sound of American and British mainstream pop for the next seven years. In fact, in retrospect, it’s rather stunning how thoroughly Buckingham and Nicks, who had previously recorded as a duo and were romantically entangled in the past, overtook the British blues band. … While Rumours had more hits and Tusk was an inspired work of mad genius, Fleetwood Mac wrote the blueprint for Californian soft rock of the late ’70s and was the standard the rest were judged by.
