Can remember buying my first copy of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours as an LP in 1977 after hearing "Dreams" on the radio three or four times in one morning. Written by Stevie Nicks, it became the only U.S. number one hit for the group, and even today, so many years later, it remains one of their best known songs. That first LP went it's own way years later, but was replaced with a CD copy. That one still surfaces in my untidy collection now and then, but when I saw the MP3 version here, it was an instant no brainer to grab it.

That classic classic disc was the number-one album on the charts for over 30 weeks, and Rolling Stone named "Rumours" as the 25th greatest album of all time. Today it ranks as the 10th best-selling album ever, with more than 40 million copies sold to date, and it features four top 10 singles. "Rumors" won the 1977 best album Grammy, and even 35 years later, it today remains remains the band's most successful effort, and ready to be shared with yet another generation.

These are the album tracks on the MP3 version here:

1. Second Hand News (LP Version); 2:53
2. Dreams (LP Version); 4:13
3. Never Going Back Again (LP Version); 2:15
4. Don't Stop (LP Version); 3:13
5. Go Your Own Way (LP Version); 3:35
6. Songbird (LP Version); 3:23
7. The Chain (LP Version); 4:31
8. You Make Loving Fun (LP Version); 3:29
9. I Don't Want To Know (LP Version); 3:15
10. Oh Daddy (LP Version); 3:57
11. Gold Dust Woman (LP Version); 5:02

For this listener, the only other song that I would have liked included here is

"Rumours" probably forever ruined the old tried and true maxim "no dating in the band!" Anyone fed that line today can simply respond, "yeah, that so didn't work for Fleetwood Mac." Arguably, dating, not to mention other things, in the band likely gave Fleetwood Mac an ineffable edge to help them attain unimaginable heights of popular music. An unanswerable question lingers as to how the album would have turned out had the band's relationships not gone sour. No one will ever know, of course. And that's very much OK. Because regardless of the emotional miasma, drama, drugs and whatever else went on, the late 1970s line up of the then nearly 10 year old Fleetwood Mac released a hugely acclaimed, and not often disputed, classic rock/pop album.

No doubt the "real" rumors in the press and subsequent documentaries detailing the band members' intimacies and the undoubtedly uncomfortable situation surrounding the recording of the album have contributed to this album's staying power. Everyone likes a good drama, after all, especially from a distance. This may have led to the creation of a new recording industy marketing strategy: take a collection of great songs, add interpersonal drama and a mega-hit will result. Struggling band managers may have started complaining "Hey! Why is no one dating in this band?!? Come on! Start kissing!" The trick, of course, remains writing a collection of great songs. And without the unquestionably great songs the drama behind the classic "Rumours" (spelled in the British manner for obvious reasons) probably wouldn't hold anyone's interest for too long. Many may have come to this album titillated by the drama or mesmerized by the sales figures and ended up staying for a direct emotional connection to the music.

That's what I read somewhere, it is in the top 10 albums of all times. I can't argue with that.

I don't know if I love this album because it takes me back to my childhood one summer when we played this non-stop on a camping trip (On an 8-track no less), or if it's just that good. I can listen to the songs over and over again and not tire of them. I think each song stands on its own and showcases the talent of each member of Fleetwood Mac. I think Christine McVie's voice is just beautiful and her performance of "Songbird" is one of the highlights of this album for me.

If you want good, solid songs for listening anytime and in any mood, this album is for you.

I may have been born 19 years after Rumours came out but I know good music when I hear it. My mom calls me old because I prefer music from before I was born and before she was even born. The first song off Rumuors I had ever heard was Dreams, then Landslide, but my favorite has to be a tie between Never Going Back Again and Songbird. The song writing on this album is purely poetic. If your are young and browsing for some awesomely written songs download Rumours. BTW it's $5 cheaper on here than on iTunes!

I hadn't heard this album in several years. I purchased this Mp3 and listened to it in its entirety, and I can tell you it is as good today as it was when it was released. It definantly has stood the test of time! A MUST own for any Classic Rock fan or if your just a fan of music in general. IMHO, if you only purchase one Fleetwood Mac album, make sure it's this one. You won't be disappointed!!!
