Double 180-Gram Black Vinyl in Gatefold Jacket

Fleetwood Mac were at the top of their game in August 1977 when they played three shows at The Forum in Los Angeles for nearly 50,000 fans. Rumours had only been out a few weeks when the band left to tour the world, returning six months later to play in LA. Rumours Live captures the energy and excitement of the band’s opening night on August 29, 1977. The concert’s setlist draws almost exclusively from the Fleetwood Mac and Rumours albums, the first two recorded by the band’s latest incarnation: Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham. The lone nod to the band’s other nine studio albums is a performance of “Oh Well,” a rock guitar masterpiece originally released in 1969 and written by the band’s founder, guitarist Peter Green.

The concert remained unreleased for decades until 2021, when “Gold Dust Woman” and “World Turning” from the show were included as bonus tracks on Live: Deluxe Edition, an expanded version of Fleetwood Mac’s 1980 concert album. The other 16 songs on the collection have never been released before.

Engineer Ken Caillat, who helped record Rumours, also recorded the concert at The Forum using the record plant’s mobile recording truck. He captured the band’s impassioned performance at a moment of peak Rumours frenzy, including powerful versions of “Landslide,” “Never Going Back Again,” “Songbird” and “The Chain.” Laquers were cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.
