45 Years Ago Today Fleetwood Mac Released Their Most Successful Album

Released on this day in 1977, Rumours is the eleventh studio album by Fleetwood Mac. Largely recorded in California during 1976, the album was fueled by two forces; love affairs within the band, and cocaine... plenty of cocaine. The album reached the top of both the United States Billboard chart and the UK Albums Chart. The songs "Go Your Own Way", "Dreams", "Don't Stop", and "You Make Loving Fun" were all released as singles. Rumours is Fleetwood Mac's most successful release; along with winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978, the album has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.
