Originally a British blues band, Fleetwood Mac wound up as the mellow epitome of California folk rock.  Rumours is their multiplatinum moment:  lushly produced, catchy as hell, charged with emotional undercurrents.  Buoyed by drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, the singers maintain a tense balance of power.  Stevie Nicks casts her gauzy-voiced spells on the lingering "Dreams," Lindsey Buckingham stands firm on the pointedly up-tempo "Go Your Own Way," and Christine McVie wraps her gruff voice around the seductive "You Make Loving Fun."  Rumored to be an autobiographical, Rumours flows like a conversation between ex-lovers.  The shifting alliances and conflicting feelings are resolved on "The Chain." ~ 1977, Warner Bros.
