A Tune for Tuesday No.12

31 January 2012

Earlier this month we invited friends over for a classic album evening. The evening was in honor of David's birthday, so the rules were that we need to have a classic album for each of his decades and it had to be on vinyl: CD entries were strictly forbidden. So the night before we spent much time debating what albums could carry such a title. There were plenty of classic songs, but the criteria we'd set ourselves was that it had to be a classic album from beginning to end. By the time our guests arrived we had four piles. It was funny how we had a towering pile for the 70's; a generous pile for the 80's; a somewhat smaller pile for the 90's and a smattering for the noughties (don't you just despise that word!). I guess it had something to do with the declining number of albums now being produced on vinyl,  but why did our collection of 70's vinyl come head and shoulders above the rest? Maybe it's an age thing, or maybe it's that the 70's was the decade of the classic album. A combination of both I expect.

Anyhow, this was one of the most popular votes that evening: Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. So without further ado, here is one of my favourite tracks from it. Enjoy.
