When starting a vinyl record collection, there are obvious choices for must have albums. Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is still relevant and popular as ever in the vinyl music world. That is no small feat considering the album first came out 44 years ago.
Released on February 4th, 1977, Rumours is one of the top 20 best selling vinyl records of all time. Last year, Rolling Stone placed it number seven on their list of the 500 best albums of all time. Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On came in at number one.
If you want to purchase a vintage edition of Rumours, with the original album cover, expect to pay an average of $25 to $30 on a site like Ebay or Discogs. Copies without the record’s jacket – album cover tend to go for a tad cheaper.
Listening to Fleetwood Mac’s most popular album on vinyl provides for an entirely new listening experience, as compared with listening to it in a digital format. With songs including Go Your Own Way, Don’t Stop and You Make Loving Fun, the album is an enduring classic.
If you own a record player buy Rumours. You most certainly do not want to go your own way without it.
