Fleetwood Mac, one of rock s most enduring, beloved and successful bands, circulate another round of Rumours with expanded and deluxe versions of the album in celebration of its 35th anniversary. Rumours made the band one of the most iconic bands of the 1970s and garnered wide critical praise, earned the Grammy® for Album of the Year, and has now sold more than 40 million copies worldwide since its 1977 debut.
The expanded edition s three CDs 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.
Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks recorded Rumours against a backdrop personal turmoil, chronicling their raw emotions in songs like "Go Your Own Way, " "Gold Dust Woman" and "Dreams, " the latter becoming the band s first number one smash.
The disc of 12 unreleased live recordings from the band s 1977 Rumours tour features performances from concerts in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Nashville and Columbia, S.C. The songs include album tracks like "The Chain, " "Oh Daddy" and "Songbird" as well as "World Turning" and "Rhiannon, " two tracks from the group s 1975 eponymous release.
Producers also have compiled a selection of 16 unreleased recordings from the album s sessions including early takes of "Go Your Own Way, " "I Don t Want To Know" and the popular b-side "Silver Springs. " There are also several demo recordings, including one for the outtake "Planets of the Universe, " plus an instrumental version of "Never Going Back Again. "

Yet there is a quality about this album transcends the slick pop surface. I think it is because this album is one of contrasts. It may be contrast between the emotional impact of the lyrics and the mystically happy music. Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham were breaking up, as were Christine and John McVie. The lyrics deal with difficult emotions, the loss of relationships and the fear of being alone and abandoned -- the anger, wind of uncertainty and self doubt at the end of a significant committed relationship. They stand in brilliantly dark contrast to the slick, polished music which accompanies them. Or perhaps it is the ability of Lindsey Buckingham to rip of a tight, gut renching rock guitar solo in the middle of a light pop tune. Whatever it is which makes this album great, there is no denying that is an essential album in anyone's collection.
If you have a DVD player with a good surround system, I highly recommend buying the DVD-Audio version. This album is so clean and well recorded and marvelous, it deserves better than the CD format.
Those who play vinyl usually have a cleaning machine for their records before first play which I used on this disc. First play meant a few static pops here and there but second play was as pristine a sound as I could ever imagine.
Bottom line: Expensive somewhat but if your copy is more than ten years old treat yourself to this fine new pressing. And the next time you drop the rock, pour yourself a glass, settle back in that favorite lounge chair and let this terrific music soothe your troubled mind.
