Fleetwood Mac – Rumours

News 16/01/2013
Fleetwood Mac, one of rock’s most enduring, beloved and successful bands, will circulate a fresh round of RUMOURS on January 25, 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.
In celebration of the release, the current line-up of the band, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, both original members since 1967, and Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, who joined the band in 1975, will kick off their first U.S. tour since 2009 in April.
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.
The deluxe edition also includes all of the music from the expanded version, plus an additional disc of outtakes, a DVD that features ‘The Rosebud Film’, a 1977 documentary about the album.
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’.
