A nice copy of a scarce Fleetwood Mac LP and the first copy we’ve had in several years.
Released in 1977, Rumours was the album that turned Fleetwood Mac into superstars. The album reached #1 in the U.S. and in the UK and has sold more than twenty million copies in the U.S. alone.
Rumours is the kind of album that transcends its origins and reputation, entering the realm of legend — it’s an album that simply exists outside of criticism and outside of its time, even if it thoroughly captures its era. Prior to this LP, Fleetwood Mac were moderately successful, but here they turned into a full-fledged phenomenon, with Rumours becoming the biggest-selling pop album to date. While its chart success was historic, much of the legend surrounding the record is born from the group’s internal turmoil. Unlike most bands, Fleetwood Mac in the mid-’70s were professionally and romantically intertwined, with no less than two couples in the band, but as their professional career took off, the personal side unraveled.
