Screw you if you don't agree with us when we say Fleetwood Mac's Rumours is one of the greatest hang-over cures of all time. Its timeless melodies, its after-the-coke-party glaze, the interpersonal tensions (you can just smell the musk of the band's members intermingling) ... it's just one of THE classic rock and/or roll albums. So forgive us if we're a little stoked they're re-releasing Rumours as a CD/DVD package with bonus tracks.
O.K., we admit that this particular album sounds best when played on a record player with a slightly dusty stylus, but we are obsessive completists so we're curious to take in the bonus material this particular reissue is offering. We don't even really care that it's an obvious grab at the average Boomer's steadily shrinking wallet.
In even better news, they've gotten the band back together and are going on a greatest hits tour! Fleetwood Mac "Unleashed" attacks Allstate Arena on March 5, but tickets go on sale December 15 through TicketBastard.
