Rumours by Fleetwood Mac Album Info

Rumours is the eleventh studio album by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac. Largely recorded in California during 1976, it was produced by the band with Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut and was released on 4 February 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. The record peaked at the top of both the main United States Billboard chart and the United Kingdom Albums Chart. "Go Your Own Way", "Don't Stop", "Dreams", and "You Make Loving Fun" were released as singles. A Grammy Award winner, Rumours is Fleetwood Mac's most successful release with sales of over 40 million copies worldwide, and diamond certifications in several countries, including the US, UK and Australia. The band wanted to expand on the commercial success of the 1975 record Fleetwood Mac, but struggled with relationship breakups before recording started. The Rumours studio sessions were marked by hedonistic behaviour and interpersonal strife between Fleetwood Mac members; these experiences informed the album's lyrics. Influenced by pop music, the record's tracks were recorded using a combination of acoustic and electric instruments. The mixing process delayed the completion of Rumours, but was finished by the end of 1976. Following the album's release in 1977, Fleetwood Mac undertook worldwide promotional tours. Rumours garnered widespread critical acclaim. Praise centred on its production quality and harmonies, which frequently relied on the interplay among three vocalists. The record has inspired the work of musical acts in different genres. Often considered Fleetwood Mac's best release, it has featured in several publications' lists of the best albums of the 1970s and the best albums of all time. In 2004, Rumours was remastered and reissued with the addition of an extra track and a bonus CD of outtakes from the recording sessions. In July 1975, Fleetwood Mac's tenth album was released to great commercial success, eventually selling over four million copies and reaching #1 in 1976. The record's hit single "Rhiannon" gave the band extensive radio exposure. At the time, Fleetwood Mac's line-up consisted of guitarist and vocalist Lindsey Buckingham, drummer Mick Fleetwood, keyboardist and vocalist Christine McVie, bassist John McVie, and vocalist Stevie Nicks. After six months of non-stop touring, the McVies divorced, ending nearly eight years of marriage. The couple stopped talking to each other socially and discussed only musical matters. Buckingham and Nicks—who had joined the band before 1975's Fleetwood Mac and after guitarist Bob Welch had left were having an on/off relationship that led them to fight often. The duo's arguments stopped only when they worked on songs together. Fleetwood faced domestic problems of his own after discovering that his wife Jenny, mother of his two children, had an affair with his best friend. Press intrusions into the band members' lives led to inaccurate stories. Christine McVie was reported to be in hospital with a serious illness, while Buckingham and Nicks were declared the parents of Fleetwood's daughter Lucy after being photographed with her. The press also wrote about a rumoured return of original Fleetwood Mac members Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, and Jeremy Spencer for a 10th anniversary tour. Despite false reports, the band did not change line-up, although its members had no time to come to terms with the separations before recording for a new album began. Fleetwood has noted the "tremendous emotional sacrifices" made by everyone just to attend studio work. In early 1976, Fleetwood Mac crafted some new tracks in Florida. Founding members Fleetwood and John McVie chose to dispense with the services of their previous producer, Keith Olsen, because he favoured a lower emphasis on the rhythm section. The duo formed a company called Seedy Management to represent the band's interests.

PAckley - My all time favorite album

I had Rumors on 8-track in my 1968 Camaro! That's dating me but I wore that thing out and the speakers in my car!! I have it on CD and my iPhone now. I saw them in 1976 and they are still one of the best rock bands of all time!

monty5 - What is there to say...

Perfectly classic. What all records aspire to be.

XxiiKILLu4FUNxX - Unworthy

Hotel California deserved best album of the year

Yungwavegod - Unreal

My mother used to play this album constantly when I was growing up. Brings some of the greatest memories that will never happen again. Stevie Nicks is a Queen.

Animal1959 - Best to track entire record each time you listen.

Back when vinyl was the format of choice I would usually track one or both sides of a record each time I chose to listen to a record. After tracking the record a few times I would develop a “sonic” memory of the songs and the order they are tracked in. Years later buying the digital version of the album that “sonic” memory from 1977 comes rushing back and my brain excites with the knowledge of what song is to play next on the record. “Rumors” means 1977 which means high school senior year. There was good and bad at that time of my life but music was the glue that held everything together. Don’t hesitate to buy this record (with all of the tracks) if you are missing any part of it. When the music police come to visit you, not owning this record could mean bad mo-jo for you!

Camels8181 - Greatest album!

One of the finest albums ever written and produced. Go Your Own way is amazing - written when Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks split and yet they still sang this together. The whole album flows. This album tells a story, as such, this type of album will go away. Today's music of buying one song at a time will make album story telling a thing of the past. Sad........

bluesfan76 - unmatched!

Rumours was, is and always will be the greatest album of all time regardless of musical genre or individual taste. When taken into consideration the break-ups and divorces that the band was dealing with before and during the making of this album (not to mention the substance abuse) it is amazing to think what they were able to accomplish. The songwriting, production and vocal harmonies are absolutely briliant. Rumours is made even greater by the fact that their previous album, the first with Stevie & Lindsey, was a smash hit also. How many times have we seen bands or artists struggle to follow up a smash album with something even close in terms of quality or success. Yet the Mac comes back and blows their previous recording out of the water with Rumours. I'll stop rambling and leave you with this..Tusk, in and of itself was a pretty solid album, but when released as the album that followed Rumours it was considered a failure.

QueenChristine4 - legend

this is the best album of all time. all the songs on this album are amazing. I'm 14 and i can honestly say this is one of my favorite albums.

@Nerd4Film - Crescent Fresh

The rare album where the drama behind the scenes translated into genius on the record. This one pulsates with raw emotion start to finish. A microcasm of a relationship beginning to end (but not in order) ,Such is Life #HAF

Curlyhair9197 - Love this !

Their music Is and always will be the greatest !!!!

Crempster - Classic!

This album is great from top to bottom. So great fleetwood Mac could never even come close to matching the success of this album. If you don't have this in your collection you don't know what your missing.

DMacLean15 - Wow

Incredible album

Jon122342692393 - Top to bottom great album

Track 3 and 9 are my favorites

Pancake 22 - STEVIE NICKS

I don't usually write reviews. Like, ever. But I am obsessed with this album and band. I grew up listening to this, and always loved it, but only recently I have fallen truly in love. The emotional trauma and work that must have gone into this album as they were all divorcing and breaking up produced some of the most emotionally-charged music I've ever heard. The lyrics and songwriting is mystical, meaningful, and beautiful. Stevie Nick's throaty, strong, sexy voice is possibly the best thing I've ever heard. Lindsey Buckingham is so talented with the guitar. And of course, much love for Christine McVie/ Perfect, Mick Fleetwood, and John McVie. Thank you all so much for making this music. On a side note, I am a teen and no, we do not all listen to terrible pop music.

ThePurposeInside - One of the Greatest Rock Albums of All Time!

Even though I didn't grow up in the '70s, this definitely deserved the Grammy for Best Album. It is what makes Fleetwood Mac an awesome band. There is not a bad song on here, and each one tells a story. Go Your Own Way, Dreams, Don't Stop, You Make Loving Fun, The Chain, and Gold Dust Woman are the best tracks. In fact, it's most of their biggest hits. Along with other great songs like Songbird, Second Hand News, and Never Going Back Again, this album is just flawless. It is Fleetwood Mac's best and should be passed down from generation to generation. Even though Glee pretty much butchered these classics, it has given others a chance to discover the originals. Thanks for making this great music, guys. You rock!



RockNRollStaaaa - Amazing

Easily one of the greatest albums of all time. And that's coming from a guy who mostly listens to Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Van Halen, harder stuff. Buy it.

odeiminikwe - Love it😍

One of the best albums ever created!

Awesomeness! Fun game! - omg

One of the best albums and bands off all time, if not THE best band and album of all time! This record is ageless- defiantly my favorite.

Joe7Name - The best album of all time

Amazing album! SNL recently did I Don't Want To know

marconiusrex - The most perfect Album Ever!

Just…just ….so Just ….well!!!!! Perfect!

Evan232323 - A vision of crystal perfection.

Fleetwood Mac is the only band I have ever experienced that has conquered different stylistic changes flawlessly. This album deserves its title as one of the best selling albums of all time. The writing is exceptional, the harmony is exquisite, and the story is fascinating.

nursejano - Great!

Who can top these guys?

Spaulding-sport - This defined a new age in music

Lindsey Buckingham's magnum opus...this is truly a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, and still stands alone in its genre. Their amazing live albums and other covers continue the legend of this greatness. Thanks 'Mac and please keep your art flowing.

Gdmacc1 - A must have

An all time greaaaaat album, and one of the best shows I've seen live. Buckingham is a beast guitar player who is highly underrated!!!!!

shrdlu123 - Yeah, it's *that* good.

I've never gravitated to a specific group or performer. I have a huge library of film scores which I primarily use in work. But this album is one I've always had since the 1970's, whether vinyl, 8-track, casette or download. It's just that good, really.

Rye Lee - 70's...Take me back

Great album, almost makes me feels like I'm back in high school again. ;)

jctMUSE - Truly Joyful Energetic Music from Classic Rock / Pop / Folk

From the period of one word albums, either first efforts or, as in this case, a "certain direction" (per the band), something unique happened that I just appreciate more over time. Someone once asked me if that wasn't the album from "like 20 years ago?" to which I thought, well, yes, "the" or "an" album from late 70s / early 80s with very talented musicians playing so joyfully together. By over time, i mean appreciating the talent and way in which it's so symbiotically applied so the tasty guitar licks come sparsely but subtly you might not notice, and it feels like a live take (per the 2013 documentary on LA's "Studio City" and its 1 of 4 in the world Neve console). To add the memories from that part of my life brings it back, and holds more in store for a mixture of emotions and insights that come from real life over time. One example, besides the classical relationships and human condition archetypes, not to diminish that, is the space each member leaves for the others. And the bass player, quite tall, was a guest starter for our rowing team in Marina del Rey, with his height and position, clearly seen by all, added a palatable sense spice to our already superbly motivated Varsity Eight shell. Just one of those moments that makes it more personable. Wish we'd all had more time to meet and speak, but the essence is, there's not a song on the album that isn't ingrained for me, and I'd think for others that enjoy fine musicianship, live feeling, and meaningful songs.

Cccoooooooooooooooooool - Best album ever!

I wore the vinyl album out from listening to everyday when I was a teenager!!!!

Angiiloveu - Amazing!!!!

I just love Fleetwood Mac and this is by far my favorite album. It's just perfection.

Fleetwoodmacboss - Perfection.

Best album I have ever heard.

MissCinderella02 - Classically Obsessed....

One of THE best rock albums of All Times. Not many people understand why I have an obsession with a 70s band when I was born in 96. It's all in the lyrics. As Christine McVie once said "the music revolves around the lyrics, not vice versa." And those words ring true, for so many albums but especially this one. This album alone has helped me get through many many tough times in my life that other music just couldn't do, and for that, I will forever be greatful. <3

gogos4ever - Timeless

One of if not the best albums ever recorded. No fillers; every song is fabulous.

Quinnster99 - Best album ever!

Quite simply, the best album in the history of rock and roll. It still stands but must be listened to in the original track order. A masterpiece.

tekanut - Ones of the Great Bands of the 70's

I met my first wife listening to a 8-track of Rumours she had in her car. I was so impress with the sound and music, that we listen to the whole tape holding hands.

jffmac - Classic

One of the greatest albums of all time! Buy if you don't have it already

Beavernickle - Essential

It's a sad day when 1D have a gazillion reviews and RUMOURS has zero... This was the first 'real' album I ever bought. It is an incredible album and collection of songs, made even more special when you know the turmoil the band was going thru while recording it. Most other artists would have walked away but Fleetwood Mac channelled the chaos into one of thee greatest albums ever made. There isn't one filler on this baby it's amazing start to finish, and The Chain, what an iconic bass riff, this is worth the price alone. It's a no brainer, if you don't own it, hit BUY.

Mainmantied - Mac at their very best!

Its a rollercoaster of struggling emotions, reflecting the real life experiences of the band. The blend of superb musical competencies, inspired songwriting and tempremental dispositions allows for a once in a blue moon musical masterpiece. Do not miss ths gem!
