In anticipation of Fleetwood Mac’s upcoming gigs with their full line-up (we’re glad to see Christine McVie is back!), we chose their eleventh studio album as our June Album of the Month.
‘Rumours’ is not only super-group Fleetwood Mac’s best-selling albums but it is also one of the best-selling albums of all time. It boasts many Fleetwood Mac favourites such as ‘Dreams’, ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘The Chain’ amongst others. However, despite the uplifting feeling of many of the tunes, times were tough in the studio as all of the bandmembers were going through a relationship break-up, some of which were with one another. There is a reason the album has been hailed as Rock’s Greatest Soap Opera. Read more about the album here.
Experience this album in an immersive fashion at one of our worldwide sessions. Each session will feature a musical lead-up which will set the tone for the album with music from Fleetwood Mac, their relevant contemporaries and their influences. Next we present the story behind the album. Finally, we play the album uninterrupted, on vinyl (the best pressing we can find!) on our world-class audiophile hi-fi ensuring that listeners will hear the album in a new way.
