In honor of Stevie Nicks’ birthday, today’s rock pearl comes from Fleetwood Mac’s second album, Rumours. Fleetwood Mac is perhaps best known for Landslide, The Chain, Go Your Own Way, and Rhiannon, to name a few. Out of a somewhat chaotic existence and the ousting of members, artistic differences and scathing love affairs came some incredible music for this London-based band. They have sold millions of records worldwide and even played at President Clinton’s inauguration. Each album featured multiple lead singers. Nicks’ voice is particularly beautiful and haunting at the same time.
“Gold Dust Woman” sounds much like a trip west. Haunting guitar sounds from Lindsey Buckingham and perfect melodies from Christine McVie and Buckingham compliment Nicks’ somber but captivating voice. Turn up the volume on your device, lie on the couch or roll the windows down in the car and enjoy this pearl!
