Without releasing a record or touring in 2012, Fleetwood Mac got their due in spades this year with music supervisor Randall Poster’s deservedly acclaimed tribute record. That set brought reverent takes on “Silver Springs,” “Landslide,” “Gold Dust Woman,” “Dreams,” and “Storms” to name a few standouts, with nobody taking on “Sara” — my favorite FM cut. Call it a “reunion tour” (as many have disingenuously done, in light of their last jaunt being just a few years ago), but perhaps the love inspired these 2013 dates from the great group.
The last nod to Rumours this year just arrived via the Staves’ “Songbird” contribution to Mojo Magazine‘s new tribute disc. Hear a fine entry point to their full-length debut of original material above and check out Your Truly‘s trip to their home in England below:
