Rock On, Gold Dust....

I'm fortunate to have this record on original vinyl!  In our house, there are regular debates about who provides the true talent in the band.  Stevie?  Lindsey?  Christine?  The band's name-sakes?  Playful banter aside, it's fair to say that the elusive something comes from the group's unique composition.  I'd also add a respectful nod to the absent co-founder, Peter Green.  As it turned out, all roads led to the recording of the band's best known album - Rumours, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this month.   In this article over at Music Radar, the band's producer Ken Caillat reflects on the making of Rumours, track-by-track.  The article also features some great images of the band, on and off stage. Rumours - some say - after 35 years, is still one of the world's best albums ever made.  I'd agree.  Truly great, memorable, classic albums are like gold dust.
