      The Rumors being everywhere in 77 statement got me curious. I looked it up and that album produced 4 Top 10 hits. Not a lot ahead of that but a few. From some article:

      There are at least 15 albums in history that have produced five top 10 hits, including releases from Madonna, Janet Jackson, Bon Jovi and New Kids on the Block, to name just a few. The most recent projects that have pushed exactly five singles into the top 10 include Taylor Swift’s 1989, The Black Eyed Peas’ The E.N.D. and Fergie’s The Dutchess.

      Four titles have sent exactly six songs into the Hot 100’s top 10: Michael Jackson’s Bad, George Michael’s Faith, Janet Jackson’s Janet. and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream.

      Just four other albums have made it to seven top 10 singles, which currently stands as the most impressive performance among all albums in U.S. history: Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Bruce Springsteen’ Born in the U.S.A., Janet Jackson’s Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 and Drake’s Scorpion (which holds the record for the most simultaneous top 10 hits, with seven).

          That was in the RnR HOF Thread and I said I liked Europe and Survivor over Duran Duran not that they should get in their. Then again the put Dolly Parton in there this year so...

          Fleetwood Mac's commercial era is mostly meh. Peter Green's era was way bluesier way more catchy. Guitar work was way better. Songs were consistently good. Nicks/Buckingham era is still way better than the easy listening era from like 70-74.

            I would think one of the first NA Beatles albums would have pulled off that feat too. Prince's Purple Rain too.

                Fleetwood Mac. Gotta have a bad ear not to hear their greatness. But, they’re just one band I like. ZZ Top…burnt up many amps and woofers in the day listening to them guysms, amongst others. But no one is better than AC/DC far as R&R…no one. Here’s a gem that don’t get a lot of love:

                  That's great information and for sure, Thriller in 1983 was a lot like Rumours in 1977 and as you said it had even more hit songs. But what I remember about Rumours more than anything was the fact that just about every song got airplay at some level. And probably the reason for that is that radio was in it's wild west era. AM was still playing pop. FM was within a year of destroying AM as a signal. Stations like KATT weren't formula at that time.

                  So you had WKY and KOMA playing Mac's hit records on AM, you had new FM"album oriented" stations like KATT playing their what is now know as "deep cuts" and then we had "underground" stations like KOFM which played the rest of Rumours. KOFM was really avant garde in those days and played all kinds of crazy stuff.

                  By the time Thriller came out radio stations were structured again through the FM signal. KOFM went from underground to being the new WKY.

                  But the early '70s to about '78 was great if you had an FM radio (and not that many people did believe it or not).

                  Comment


                    Here is a vintage KOFM song from 1974. The Strawbs- Round and Round. Nobody in the States except for hard core FM people had ever heard of the Strawbs.

                      And while KOFM was playing shit nobody ever heard of...

                      KATT might be playing a similar type prog song like this "deep cut" from Ambrosia... "Nice, Nice, Very Nice"

                      Comment


                        And people actually knew who Ambrosia was because an AM station like KOMA would be playing their top 40 hit "Holdin' on to Yesterday"

                            Meanwhile, OKC's top radio station WKY-AM would deem all those other songs "too controversial" and would be playing something like this...

                                  ELO, there is no other band even in their league..while they may not be “the best” band all time, there’s no doubt they are the most talented. There’s not 3 or 5, there’s multiple members playing many instruments to bring the music they can put together. And they are great. If anyone has any doubts about this, just check out their live performance in Wembley, London a few years ago. The whole show…here’s a few:

                                              Black Sabbath showing their versatility here even under Ozzy with a Jazz song at the end of Symptom of the Universe.

                                                Here's another from Fleetwood Mac.



                                                Kinda reminds me of Since I've Been Loving You or Tea for One from Zeppelin.

                                                  If yer trying to diminish or make fun of Fleetwood Mac to those that grew up, listened to and appreciate their music, which absolutely seems like you are, don’t keep digging a huge hole.

                                                  And that’s about as nice as I can be. Nothing you are posting is legend FWM.

                                                    Are you not familiar with the original FM lineup? I don't see how posting the Peter Green years and comparing those to Zeppelin as him "diminishing" or "making fun" of the Mac?

The very reason I'm mostly meh on them Too much of a disposable pop sound at times. I get a few of their songs from that era like Tusk, Never Going Back Again, The Chain. But then you got the awful pop songs like Don't Stop, Landslide, Go Your Own Way, Dreams, or pretty much anything Nicks wrote.
                                                                        Other than Stevie Nicks sounding like a sheep, those MAC songs weren't that bad. They just got driven into the ground. I can't really listen to them anymore for the same reason I can't listen to Classic Rock anymore. All they do is play songs I'm still sick of from 40-50 years ago.

                                                                        But I will say that FM's sound prior to Nicks and Buckingham was way more bluesy and IMO more musically sophisticated. I actually think the only FM record I actually bought was "Mystery to Me" which came out right before they changed their sound. Didn't need to buy anything after that. Just listen to the radio.

And by the way, KEXP puts out a ton of really good live music performance videos. that's Seattle, right? Here's another one from a band I really like. I may have already added it a while back, but not sure.
