When the new Billboard Album charts came out on April 2, 1977, there was a new #1 album in the US, “Rumours” by Fleetwood Mac. It only stayed at #1 for 2 weeks when on April 16th, the Eagles “Hotel California” took the top spot for 5 weeks, staying there until May 21st, when “Rumours” went back to #1. “Rumours” then stayed on top for 8 weeks until the July 16th edition of the chart when “Barry Manilow Live” took over the #1 spot. But Barry only stayed there for one week, and on the July 23rd chart “Rumours” climbed back to the top for the next 19 weeks, until Linda Ronstadt’s “Simple Dreams” LP went to the top.
Yeah, it was a big record. Do you have a favorite song off the LP?
