39 years ago today Fleetwood Mac released Rumours. The songs ‘Go Your Own Way’, ‘Don’t Stop’, ‘Dreams’, and ‘You Make Loving Fun’ were released as singles. Rumours was Fleetwood Mac’s most successful release and won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978. The Rumours studio sessions, however, were tainted by hedonistic behaviour and interpersonal strife among Fleetwood Mac members; these experiences shaped the album’s lyrics.
The album has sold over 45 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. It is ranked No. 120 on Rolling Stone ’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
