We’re revisiting Fleetwood Mac’s lauded second album, Rumours, which arrived in 1977 with iconic hits Dreams, Don’t Stop, and Go Your Own Way.  


'Rumours' (1977)

Originally part of the mid-‘60s British blues boom, Fleetwood Mac decamped to California in the mid-‘70s to become one of the most successful AOR bands in history. With a hit self-titled album under their belts already, the “classic” lineup of Mick Fleetwood, John & Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks topped it with their second, Rumours. The 1977 collection was recorded while two romantic relationships within the band were disintegrating – a situation that would’ve produced disaster in most cases but produced a masterpiece in this one, as the raw emotions were channeled into songs like Go Your Own Way, Don't Stop and the band’s first number one smash, Dreams. Rumours garnered wide critical praise upon release, earning the Grammy for Album of the Year, and has now sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.

Let’s revisit those iconic hits below!
