I went through a bad break up in 2013. It was the impetus for me to leave Montréal for the first time after finishing undergrad (that, and a job back in NY). It was a pretty acrimonious break up with lots of hurt feeings and animosity between me and her in our small social circle of Art-Punks. We're on good terms now, but at the time I was hurting and hurting bad.
On Christmas Break back home going into my last semester, I rediscovered my copy of "Rumours" that had belonged to an uncle who bought it new in 1977. From the moment the needle hit the first notes of "second hand news" I knew I found a good "coping album". Listening to "dont stop thinking about tomorrow" helped me get through and stay optimistic, seriously.
Flash forward to 2014, I am on a big blues kick and start listening to Pre-Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac. Those early records with Peter Green were pretty intense stuff, could almost pass as real Chicago blues.
"Rumours" was a multi platinum selling album and for our Baby Boomer friends a record that may have allot of meaning, or serve as a soundtrack for better vanished times. So Cyburbians, what are your Fleetwood Mac highlights?
*Note: lets not talk about "Tusk" :p
