Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

One of my all time fave albums - I am sure it is for many others - I gew up on it as a kid and its still timeless today!

Had it on CD for the last 25 years - more recently ripped in ALAC to my NAS - Sounds good thorugh my DAC.

Was browsing today in my local record shop - it was staring at me, the price label displayed £4 - I gingerley eased it out of the horrible paper sleeve - YES it looked prisitne, got it home a quick clean through the Knosti, new Nagaoka sleeve job done.

Been excited all day, waited until my daughter was in bed then dropped the needle on it! It sounds amazing, so much better than the CD, its momemnts like this that I absolutely love vinyl - even the missus has commented on how nice it sounds - anyway gotta shoot waiitng for The Chain & Gold Dust Woman - 2 of the best track on the album imho

Happy days!

Love the album, and agree with the sentiment.

Yes good album but don't play it much now. I think every hifi shop must have a copy, certainly seen a few in them lately. My vinyl was never very good, mid 70s, poor pressing maybe some distortion on side 2, my cd is not great either early one, the USA edition is meant to be much better. One a poor/average system the cymbals are not clear on the first few tracks. Even on a decent tweeters its not perfect.

I'm hoping to find a lost YouTube video where she is sooooo desirable.

RE: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

I've never heard the album but will give it a go on YouTube.

I have picked up on so many artists through threads like these (especially the 'what are you listening to' thread.

 Supreme, go listen now! It is a true classic. Heard it first round a friends house whose old man was playing it when i was about 28, and thought..whoaaa....how could I have missed this...but it's great to discover a classic a bit later on in life. 40 this year and hundreds more classics hopefully to discover..  :grin:

Hey Steve. When you have a spare 60 odd quid to blow the 2x45rpm Hoffman/Gray USA re-mastered is the copy to get. Kin amazing pressing , blows the original into the weeds mate.

I have had a listen and enjoyed it. I have heard quite a few of the tunes before here and there. I can see how this album could become like an old friend quite quickly

RE: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Rumours is a great album.  Got the remastered CD and very happy with the sound.  I've seen Fleetwood Mac live twice and both times they put on a brilliant show.  Couldn't afford to get tickets for this year's tour, but I'm so glad I've seen them.
