Fleetwood Mac's Rumours set to re-enter UK Top 10

Fleetwood Mac Rumours

The classic 1977 album has just been re-released in several deluxe packages

Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is set to re-enter the UK Top Ten this weekend — 35 years after it first reached Number One.

Several deluxe reissue packages were released yesterday (January 28) to mark the 35th anniversary of Rumours hitting the top spot on the UK’s Official Albums Chart. The album originally came out in February 1977, but did not climb to Number One until January 1978, nearly a year later. After spawning the classic hits “Don’t Stop,” “Dreams,” and “Go On Your Way,” it would go on to sell over 40m copies worldwide, placing it in the all-time Top Ten.

Responding to the success of the reissue packages so far, Official Charts Company bigwig Martin Talbot said: “As someone who grew up with Rumours on the family stereo, it is great to see it back in the Official Albums Chart again.”

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks has recently spoken about the undimmed popularity of Rumours. “When I listen to it, I think if I was 20 years old, I would definitely want to be in that band,” she told Rolling Stone. “There is something strangely timeless about it that makes you feel like it was just recorded last year.”

Continuing, Nicks insisted she still finds the classic tracks from Rumours exciting to perform. She explained: “The songs morph a little bit every time we do them. Instrumentally, they morph. ‘Gold Dust Woman’ is sometimes Indian. Sometimes it’s just rock & roll. It travels, and all these songs do that. To me, they are always exciting. I never feel bored when we burst into one of our big hit songs, because what they were all written about was so heavy that they could never be boring.”

Fleetwood Mac are now gearing up for a massive North American tour, which kicks off in April and runs all the way into July. UK dates have yet to be announced, but Mick Fleetwood has recently hinted that the band could hit Britain in September or October.
