Oh, the heartache. Oh, the drug intake. And oh, the sales records they did break. It's all here in this 70-minute, 1997 chronicle of the making of one of pop music's biggest albums ever, Rumours. All five members of Fleetwood Mac's most successful incarnation are interviewed, and their comments are even more candid than the confessional songs ("Dreams", "Go Your Own Way" et al.) on the album itself; descriptions of the torturous process of making a record while John and Christine McVie's marriage and the Lindsey Buckingham-Stevie Nicks liaison were breaking up at the same time makes for compelling, if slightly discomfiting, viewing. Meanwhile, lest one forget that Rumours was terrific as well as revealing, plenty of attention is paid to the songs. Particularly fascinating (as with most Classic Albums packages) are the breakdowns of the separate instrumental and vocal components of individual tracks. This is a great tale, wonderfully told. --Sam Graham, Amazon.comSee all Product Description

Ultimately it is first a foremost, a documentary style programme on the way the infamous album "Rumours" was born. There is in-depth discussion with the entire band - even Lindsey!! There is discussion with the producers, who reveal interesting facts about the album. Did you know one of Stevie Nicks songs was omitted from the album because there wasn't enough room on the LP for an extra song - the days before CD I might add!! There's the ultimate performance of 'Songbird' and indeed every track on the album. Mick Fleetwood is as ever the joker in the pack and he injects some humour into the documentary.
Admittedly this documentary is nearly ten years old but despite this, it centres ONLY on "Rumours" and there is no reference to "Tango In The Night". So, should you buy this DVD?? Most certainly, at nearly 90 minutes long, you will never tire of watching it, but certainly it is recommended for compulsory renting - Amazon make sure you have plenty in stock !!!
Fleetwood were at that time made up of two couples .Christine and John Mcvie were married while Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks weren't but might as well have been. Mick Fleetwood was married but not to someone else in that group ..you'll have noticed the numbers don't add up for that to be a possibility .While the group were recording Rumours both couples were undergoing highly painful split's. Christie Mcvie was having an affair with the groups lighting director which made things even more awkward. Buckingham and Nicks were still on speaking terms though much of the time that involved arguing. Fleetwood meanwhile wasn't exempt from the emotional turmoil as he found out his wife was having an affair with his best mate. Cramped together in a small recording studio in Sausalito San Francisco there was no escape from each other and it's no surprise that the individual takes on their disintegrating relationships informed the material on the album. Christine McVie later remarked that they were all writing about each other, hence the title of the album.
This DVD exhaustively puts all this on record -which of course the band did too literally- and also gives fascinating insights into the recording process and the make up of individual songs , something this series always does really well and is arguably its most absorbing facet.Read more ›

Beware! This is not the "Classic Album" Rumours by Fleetwood Mac as shown. It is talking about when it was made and it's gone back!Published 18 months ago by Clive Hill
