Who doesn’t love Rumours? (The “iconic Fleetwood Mac album” kind, not the “Jeff Giles‘ wedding song was Rod Stewart’s ‘Love Touch'” variety.) This week, Warner Bros. reissued the greatest pop/rock album recorded while its members were enduring painful romantic splits with each other – a triple-disc affair featuring Rumours and non-LP B-side “Silver Springs” on one disc, another disc of live cuts from the band’s ensuing tour and a third disc of demos, early takes and other studio ephemera loosed from the vault for the first time. (None of the songs on that disc featured on the bonus disc from a different expanded edition in 2004, so there’s much less guilt than usual to be had about double-dipping!)
To add this nice little package to your collection, it’s simple! Send esteemed Popdose Editor Dave Lifton an e-mail with the subject line “Lindsey Buckingham’s Open-Collared Shirts” and provide your best theory as to why the Mac’s iconic 63-year-old guitarist is still able to get away with such an outré fashion choice.
