Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ Gets A Reissue & ‘Deluxe’ Treatment [VIDEO]
One of the most enduring albums from the 70’s is Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours.’ Since it’s release in 1977, ‘Rumours’ made Fleetwood Mac a household name, earned the group a Grammy for Album of the Year and has gone on to sell more than 40 million copies worldwide. According to the RIAA, as of last year, the album has sold more than 19 million albums in the U.S. alone, tying The Beatles album, ‘The Beatles’ for 7th place on the Top-Selling U.S. Albums of All Time.
To celebrate it’s 35th anniversary, Rumours has been given the Expanded and Deluxe edition treatment.
The Expanded Edition:
This is a three CD set that includes; the original album along with a bonus track b-side ‘Silver Springs,’ a dozen unreleased live recordings from the groups ’77 world tour, and what I’m looking forward to the most, an entire disc filled with unreleased takes from the album’s recording session. This includes demo versions of ‘Songbird’ and ‘The Chain’ along with instrumentals of ‘Never Going Back Again’ and ‘Keep Me There,’ plus early takes of ‘Go Your Own Way’ and ‘Gold Dust Woman.’
The Deluxe Edition:
This will include all the CD’s mention in The Expanded Edition, plus an additional disc of outtakes that was originally released as part of the reissue in 2004, a DVD that features a 1977 documentary of the making of Rumours, called ‘The Rosebud Film’ and the album on vinyl.
Both the Expanded and Deluxe editions of Rumours will be available on January 29th from Rhino or as a digital download.
