 FLEETWOOD MAC...Rumours  (1977)
"Rumours" has just been re-released for its 35th anniversary.  It was originally released 36 years ago in 1977.  It reached number 1 on the US Billboard album charts.  It receives 5 out of 5 stars and is highly recommended.  It is a stupendous album as Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie wrote some of the most recognized songs ever in rock/pop history.  Half of the album became a hit single as Fleetwood Mac dominated the radio airwaves (along with the Eagles) in 1977 and 78.  The expanded 3 CD edition includes the original album and the b-side "Silver Springs, " a dozen unreleased live recordings from the group's '77 world tour, and an entire disc filled with unreleased takes from the album's recording sessions
