Product Description

Amazon.ca

With the pop sense of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks now leading the band, Fleetwood Mac moved completely away from blues and created this homage to love, Southern California-style. Each songwriter makes his or her presence known: Nicks for her dreamy, mystical reveries ("Dreams", "Gold Dust Woman:); Christine McVie for her ultra-catchy slogans ("Don't Stop"); and Buckingham for his deceptively simple pop songs ("Second Hand News", "Go Your Own Way"). "The Chain", written collectively, is the Mac at their most dramatic. But it's the ensemble playing, the elastic rhythms and lush harmonies that transform the material into classic fare. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars the beauty is in the sound June 1 2004
By Ishtar
Format:Audio CD
In a way, the remastering seems like a marketing ploy to make more money, to promote the second leg of their national tour (it amazes me that they could still be touring- it's like trying to imagine my parents running around the country from city to city playing rock music every night. I can't.).
Yet, I think it's also an effort to present the music to their fans on CD as it was originally recorded. The pre-existing CD versions are definitely sub-optimal- the transfer from the analog recording is flat and smoothed over. When I heard Rumours remastered, I almost started crying- in fact, I might have. It was clear and vibrant, the vocals had so much more depth, and the instruments stand out from one other- and the singing rises from the music rather than being plastered to it. This is the way it was meant to be listened to. This is the reason Fleetwood Mac is a blues/folk/*rock*- and not pop- band. I can hear vocals and sounds that I never ever heard before- it's just so intense. Definitely worth it

5.0 out of 5 stars "EU" Pressing Review April 24 2011
Format:LP Record
I bought this hoping for the much discussed "Hoffman/Gray" mastering, and it turned out to be the "other" cut that people seem to be dismissing for no apparent reason other than assuming it won't be any good if Hoffman didn't master it.

Instead of just returning it, I decided to take it for a spin ...

I found it to be simply astonishing. Fantastic, warm sound. Superb bass. Nice, balanced top end. As a comparison, I used the German Warner CD (which lacks the top end boost of the so-called "secret remaster" done in the US) and found this vinyl to be absolutely superior in every way. I know there are apparently other CD masterings, but compared to the one I have (which is supposedly pretty good), this reissue set makes it sound like tin.

I attempted to post positive comments about this reissue at the Hoffman site, and mentioned that I look forward to comparing it to the US issue, but they were deleted. Why it would be necessary to delete comments about this cut is something which eludes me. Whatever the reasoning, I suggest that you not *assume* just because Hoffman touches something it renders any and all other versions irrelevant. If you get this pressing, take it for a spin and judge for yourself.

I have seen some speculation as to the source of this reissue, but nothing concrete. I will update when I have had a chance to compare it to the Hoffman/Gray reissue, but I think this will be tough to beat. No matter what the source, this sounds like somebody either knew what they were doing or left well enough alone, as it is a very impressive reissue.

UPDATE: I have just received the Hoffman/Gray version. To my ears, it is inferior to the "EU" release and has too much EQ.

By Johnnie Neptune TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
From what I can tell in my web searcing, this remaster is the same as the 2004 one. That may answer any questions owners of that release have. As I don't have that release, I was surprisingly delighted by the sound of disc 1, the studio release with 'Silver Springs' moved to position #12 to close the album.

Silver Springs is for me the best song Stevie Nicks has ever done and of all the 'Rumours' lyrics about the personal lives of the band at the time, SS goes deepest and most beautfully.

"I'll follow you down 'til the sound of my voice will haunt you.
You'll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you."

I wonder what it is like for her to still sing those lines? And for Lindsey to hear them?

Leaving it off the original album is a travesty for me that is only corrected in the 2004 set, the DVD-A, the live "The Dance" and now this 2013 series that restores it. There is no leaving it off anymore!

Normally I prefer vinyl and I do have the latest greatest repress of this iconic Fleetwood Mac album. Sadly, there is no vinyl version of 'Rumours' that has 'Silver Springs' included. A shame that it didn't fit the 45 rpm re-release. So, I give this 3 cd box a '5 surprising stars' because I bought it mostly for the 1977 live disc as well as having a copy of Rumours that has the beautiful 'Silver Springs' integrated in the studio disc and those 2 discs at this price are great value.

If this is in fact the same remaster as 2004, they were wise not to tinker further. When I hear things for the first time in a familiar recording, I know something has been done very well. Case in point, 'Oh Daddy' has a big gong from Mick Fleetwood that I have never picked out before.

4.0 out of 5 stars I would have to agree.... April 26 2011
Format:LP Record
Your 'deleted' posts from the Hoffman site is very troublesome. I read his 'take' on this/your post and he said that you have an agenda/BUT....and I say But.... his moderators of his site DELETED your honest review of this disc?? That Action Alone Speaks for itself! So WHO has the agenda Here? I perused the Hoffman site for days trying to find ONE Listener who had the EU copy and gave their analysis, but I came up with only one reference to someone who said it was 'Dull' etc...... Hmmmm
Again, who has the agenda here?? I copped Steve at giving hell to a poster who was just asking a question trying to cut through the clutter of the thread, and just wanted to know some TRUTH, and my post also, was immediately deleted and not posted. Hmmmmm. Very Uncool if you ask me, but then again, I guess I didn't 'fit' into the Hoffman Click. But that being said, it's still cool that they did a 45 rpm version of this. All the controversy aside, it's only rock n roll in't it?? LOL. The Lemmings need to take a chill and open their minds to differing opinions, if they don't then......doesn't that lead us to Closed Mindedness?? And that's not a good thing.
So now, I look forward to the EU version AND the Hoffman version i've got coming in the next few days. And Unlike the UpTurned Noses on that site, I will, as one guy who digs Rock And Roll, will give my HONEST opinion without you schmucks squelching my opinion. You all SHOULD be ashamed of yourselves. John Lennon would kick all of your butts!
Gerard Masters

4-30-11 Update:
Well, after listening to both versions, I can now confirm J.Carney's observations.....
The Hoffman version is much more 'In Your Face', if that is what your trying to get.
