Biography

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac ... Read more in Amazon's Fleetwood Mac Store

Product Description

Product Description

On February 4th 1977, after a year of recording through hedonism, scandal and relationship break-ups the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac released their eleventh studio album, Rumours. Although troubled with tension and setbacks the second time round combination of Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, John and Christine McVie, together with the production talents of Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut had created the band’s ultimate masterpiece. This 35th Anniversary Edition 3CD deluxe set features the remastered version of the original album, including extra B-side track "Silver Springs", a second disc of previously unreleased live performances compiled from the 1977 tour and a third disc of tracks from the recording sessions, also previously unreleased. Additionally there are new liner notes by David Wild.

BBC Review

Rumours will never die. Many years from now, when physical formats are forgotten and music is delivered directly into the brain via some sort of digital syringe, it’ll be there: re-released for the umpteenth time, complete with a full holographic performance, Mick Fleetwood’s eyes bulging like ping-pong balls.

They’re hypnotising here. Staring from the back cover of this triple-disc repackaging marking the album’s 35th anniversary (and released a year too late for it), the founding father figure dominates their line-up, even beside Lindsey Buckingham’s impressive ‘fro. Arguably it was the drummer who guided the band through Rumours’ troubled gestation, as relationships frayed and failed around him.

But the background of Rumours is well documented, and its songs have been heard the world over. Forty million copies sold – a figure that few present-day acts can dream of matching (although Adele’s 21, with 25 million sales and counting, could be a contender). So what does this release have to offer over past, high-profile reissues?

Disc two is filled by 12 previously unreleased live tracks, recorded at shows in Oklahoma, Tennessee and South Carolina during 1977. It’s a well-sequenced affair that gels into a most enjoyable ‘as live’ set. The crowd is never too intrusive but always present; interaction between band members is crisply captured; and Rumours’ standouts are present and correct.

Amongst these tracks are three stowaways from Fleetwood Mac’s pre-Rumours commercial high, 1975’s eponymous album. Rhiannon is Stevie Nicks’ most notable moment in the spotlight, a song that will forever sparkle. It’s as effective over almost eight minutes here as it is on its sub-four single edit.

Go Your Own Way’s B side Silver Springs is, as on earlier reissues, added to the original Rumours tracklist. Disc three contains “More from the Recording Sessions”, selections that didn’t feature on 2004’s double-disc remaster. Included are several early takes, with vocal annotations included – “Keep it going to the B-flat,” instructs Buckingham, between lines, on Oh Daddy.

Nicks sings beautifully on the lyrically bitter Planets of the Universe, which she released solo in 2001. And a slow, skeletal demo of The Chain is far removed indeed from the Formula-One-famous album version, its tremendous outro yet to take shape.

With its extra content engineered to appeal to collectors and casual fans alike, this is a justified addition to the many Rumours already making the rounds.

Reviewing a best-selling, immensely popular album over 30 years after it was released is a bit like trying to evaluate Marmite. It's been around for ages, you know that people will always buy it, but everyone either loves it or hates it already, and there's little point trying to change their minds.

For me, Rumours is just about the best album ever made, and 'Go Your Own Way' is my favourite song, my desert island disc, the one that still sends a shiver up my spine and makes me smile and / or cry (or both) every time I hear it. Part of that is down to memories of earlier times evoked by the music (it just sounds like it came from better days, whether it really did or not); part of it is down to a knowledge of the intricate human relationships within the band and the messages these songs were sending from one member to another; but largely it's just down to the sheer quality of the music. The 'classic' Fleetwood Mac line-up really was just that - Mick Fleetwood the 'Daddy'; John McVie the quiet, morose, no-nonsense bass player, together forming a tight, world-class, instantly recognisable rhythm section; Christine McVie the stalwart keyboardist; Lindsey Buckingham the brash, neurotic Californian with a talent for guitar-playing that is sorely underrated, an ego the size of the Hollywood hills and a perfectionist's drive to push the musical envelope; and Stevie Nicks, slim and fair, every 70s schoolboy's fantasy star-child, all black lace, high boots and flounces, with a voice that rasps and soothes in equal measure.

I have owned Rumours before, both in the LP format and the original CD format. Obviously this album has been a favourite of mine for a long time, with a slight more understanding of the tension involved in making it as the years have passed by.

What struck me, however, by hearing this new re-mastered version was the immense sound quality. Listening to Dreams the bass becomes so vibrant and alive with Stevie Nick's voice backed up with incredible harmonies with the addition of crisp guitar sounds and thumping drumming. On the next track, Never Going Back Again the guitar is spread in the mix giving the listener a feeling of actually being involved with the playing. Much of the same can be described by most of the other songs on the album, making me for my part re-discovering it again. Never before had I noticed how great the production was, not only in regards of the sound quality but also how it was mixed, both simple but yet innovative.

I took my old CD to compare the two versions, the hypothesis being that maybe this great sound had simply eluded me some years ago. The difference was, however, similar to hearing a worn cassette tape and a regular CD. The separation of instruments was not to be heard, a lack of depth was evident and the mix was muffled as if one were listening to a worn LP.

There is also added material. Silver Springs, a single not included on the original version, has been tacked between what before was side A and B. A fine song and its odd inclusion actually does keep the flow of the album intact (I believe having it at the end would spoil the fine ending of the original). There is also a bonus disk consisting of demos of the songs.

This is probably the culmination of this legendary band`s work - after the blues period, and with enough integrity to still be important, but before the extraordinary excesses and bizarre relationships took a firm grip on the quality of their output. Not for nothing has "Rumours" sold more units on it`s own than most bands do in their career, and not for nothing does it still sell today, so many years later.

This is quite simply pop/rock perfection, and proves the old adage that personal turmoil often produces the best art. The talents of Buckingham, Fleetwood, the McVies and the bewitching Stevie Nicks blend to offer an amazingly varied album, that gives you a little of everything; Opener "Second Hand News" is one of the great album starters, followed by the much copied, but never bettered, "Dreams". "Don`t Stop" and "Go Your Own Way" are two rightly famed songs, known by those who haven`t even heard of Fleetwood Mac. "Songbird" has of course been covered many times too, and everyone knows "The Chain"! This is one of those rare albums that people will still be introduced to and still be enjoying many years from now; it`s timeless. And it`s brilliant.

PS. This review was based on the original release - the 3CD release is an excellent buy, the demo versions are great listening.

Worth the money if only for the vastly improved sound quality from the pre-2004 edition I already own. Instruments and vocal mix are crystal-clear.
As for the songs, well of course they're exceptional. Better than most band's Greatest Hits in fact. But of course you already know this if you're a FM fan. If you are checking through these reviews undecided as to whether to purchase, well you really need to buy this album - it's just that good.
Disc 2 contains songs from their 1977 Rumours World Tour. Same great songs and sound quality. Though I do think there are slightly better FM live albums out there.
The final disc consists of early takes, outtakes and alternative versions. Perhaps slightly intriguing for one or two listens in the hope of offering a little insight into the band at that time, but nothing more than this, in my opinion.

Overall a stunning version of one of the classic rock albums of all time. A MUST buy!
