Having come of age in the 1970s I’m always thinking about whether the music was as bad then as so many say. There was some bad; there was some good. For those who don’t think the 60s produced a few dogs, consider “Yummy, Yummy, Yummy I Got Love in My Tummy” from 1968.
Fleetwood Mac was some of the best of 1970s. No doubt. Rumours was of course an amazing album and “Go Your Own Way” one of the hits on it, as were “Dreams”, “Don’t Stop”, and “You Make Loving Fun,'” all released as singles.
Unfortunately ever since the 1992 presidential campaign I can’t listen to “Don’t Stop” anymore. Thanks Bill and Al.
Rumours won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978 and, though I don’t know how album sales are calculated in the digital age, it is surely still one of the best-selling albums of all time.
The group consisted of Lindsey Buckingham (guitars, dobro, percussion, vocals); Stevie Nicks (vocals); Christine McVie (keyboards, vocals); John McVie (bass guitar); and Mick Fleetwood (drums, percussion, harpsichord).
