Classic Album Of The Week: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

The legendary Fleetwood Mac make a welcome return to Dublin tonight for the first of three highly-anticipated shows at the 3Arena.

If you're one of the lucky people with a ticket, this is the perfect warm-up and if not, let our little trip down memory lane serve as some condolence from the comfort of your own home.

Rumours was released back in February 1977 and just over three and a half decades later, it is still as good now as it was then.

In the mid-70s, the group intertwined business with pleasure and consisted of two couples. However, as their professional career took off, the romance sadly did not. Personal tensions and volatile relationships within the band went on to inspire every song on the Rumours record.

Rumours proved the catalyst that elevated Fleetwood Mac from a moderately successful group to international stardom and 36 years on, the record still proves to be somewhat of a phenomenon.

Stevie Nicks famously didn't approve of the lyrical content in 'Go Your Own Way' noting it as "angry, nasty and extremely disrespectful" but it still made out  top four tracks from the album.

This was a very tough task, we literally wanted to put the entire record in.
