RE: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

There are a few sealed copies out there but not too many. 4000 limited run. There is a 2x45 Europe version out there so be carefull that you dont get ripped off if you are tempted.

 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:

 

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

 

 absolutely. some great singles and i think the flow of the album as a whole is fantastic. The first time i heard the bassline on the chain whilst listening to the album (round said friends house) i was blown away. Great album.

RE: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Love Rumours, yet I find myself drawn to the much-less-appreciated 'Mirage' album even more. Not only good musically, there's some tracks which are such great hifi testers. For example "That's Alright": from 27sec onwards, there's what sounds like claves struck on the 2nd and 4th beat of the bar, and they're way at the back of the soundstage slightly to the left, and this is one of the things I listen for intently to judge  new speakers' imaging properties.  Other favourites are 'Can't Go Back", 'Empire State", and the last four tracks from "Hold Me" to "Wish You Were Here", which really seem to hang together as a sub-album on their own. They could almot have been on a 'Mirage EP'

Great album, but I actually prefer "Tusk''.

RE: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Like Big H my CD copy is an original pressing and not that great quality... must buy the remastered... not a bad track on it.

I used to have a membership but didn't find it had the tunes I was looking for. Besides, at the moment I just play CDs with a view to adding vinyl and streaming in the future.

RE: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Anyone heard the BluRay music release? £15 from amazon only £5 remastered Cd in HMV -worth the premium?

 

For new converts to the band, the original FM headed by Peter Green with hits Albatros and Man of the World - saw them live @1971. Agree with the above, Fleetwood and Mcvie one of the best bass/drum combos ever IMHO. Formula 1 fans will be familiar with the excerpt from the Chain.

Check out on spotify different versions, 1 is better than the other but I can't remember which one it is, looks like there is only one version now the Super Deluxe one, just tried it does not sound good on Second Hand News, a bit tizzy towards the end. For me it got overplayed and in some ways I prefer the previous album "Fleetwood Mac". Tusk and Mirage have their moments but I find them a bit patchy.

Has quite a wide coverage, there are a few big ones missing like the Beatles and Led Zepp. Have added Pink Floyd and Eagles recently. You can still use it free for 10 hours a month, good for checking stuff before buying.
