Description by OLDIES.com:

Fleetwood Mac's multi-million selling Rumours was recorded in 1977. It sold 15 million copies worldwide, spending a staggering total of 433 weeks in the U.K. charts and 130 weeks in the U.S. Billboard album chart. It was also voted Album of the Year at the 20th annual Grammy Awards in 1978.

Fleetwood Mac had been in existence for over a decade by the time of Rumours. In 1974, after several changes of personnel, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Christine McVie were joined by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. The stage was set for a new chapter in the band's career. However, by 1977, when Rumours was recorded, John and Christine McVie were separating, and Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham's relationship was also breaking up. This was the album that almost never made it!

This is the definitive story of the making of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, an album that has truly earned its place in the pantheon of rock music history. Including a specially recorded version of Christine McVie's haunting "Songbird," and Lindsey Buckingham playing a wonderful new acoustic version of "Never Going Back," you can see why Rumours is a truly classic album.

Product Description:

Formed in 1975 from the remnants of a British blues band and a California soft-rock duo, Fleetwood Mac evolved into one of the most successful pop-rock groups of the 1970s--a reputation no doubt cemented by their 1977 masterpiece RUMORS. One of the bestselling albums of all time, RUMORS' impeccable songwriting, lush vocal harmonies, and polished production stand as testament to the band's cohesive powers--a fact made even more remarkable by the romantic tensions roiling amongst its members at the time (Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were ending their long-term romantic relationship; Christine and John McVie were getting a divorce). This episode of the CLASSIC ALBUMS series recounts the making of Fleetwood Mac's career-making opus through interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and live performances of timeless gems such as "Don't Stop," "Dreams,""Go Your Own Way," "You Make Loving Fun," "The Chain," and more.
