On this day in music history: February 4, 1977 - “Rumours”, the eleventh studio album by Fleetwood Mac is released. Produced by Fleetwood Mac, Ken Calliat and Richard Dashut, it is recorded at Criteria Studios in Miami, FL, The Record Plant in Sausalito, CA and Los Angeles, CA, Zellerbach Auditorium in Berkeley, CA, Wally Heider Studios in Los Angeles, CA, Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA, and Davlen Studios in North Hollywood, CA from Early - Late 1976. Following the bands’ marathon tour in support of their breakthrough album “Fleetwood Mac”, all of the members are affected by personal conflicts, including John and Christine McVie getting divorced, drummer Mick Fleetwood splitting from his wife Jenny Boyd, and Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham also ending their long term relationship. In spite of the obvious tension, it will also see the band at its creative peak, with Buckingham, Nicks and Christine McVie all writing songs about the breakdown of their relationships. Proceeded by the single “Go Your Own Way” (#10 Pop) in December of 1976, it is an immediate critical and commercial hit upon its release, spinning of four top 10 singles including “Dreams” (#1 Pop), “Don’t Stop” (#3 Pop) and “You Make Loving Fun” (#9 Pop). Later pressings of “Rumours” feature an alternate mix of the track “Gold Dust Woman” which features glass shattering (glass panes broken by Mick Fleetwood) and howling low in the mix (by Lindsey Buckingham) at the songs’ climax. The mix released on the initial pressing is without the shattering glass, and with the howling prominently featured in the mix. Original vinyl copies of “Rumours” feature a textured LP sleeve, with a lyric sheet booklet featuring photos of the band on the outer front and back. Later LP pressings feature a non-textured cover. Originally released on CD in 1985, and then is remixed into 5.1 surround sound by original recording engineer and co-producer Ken Calliat, and released as a DVD-A disc in 2001. A two CD deluxe edition including the original stereo mix is remastered (by Bill Inglot and Dan Hersch in 2004 and 2013) and reissued on CD in 2004. It is also remastered and reissued as a 180 gram vinyl LP in both standard 33 1/3 RPM and 45 RPM double vinyl pressings in 2011. The album is remastered and reissued on CD as a triple disc edition in 2013, with the first disc featuring the original album adding the B-side “Silver Springs” (also on the 2004 reissue). The second disc includes live performance material from the “Rumours Tour” in 1977. The third disc features song demos and outtakes from the sessions. The set is also issued as a Super Deluxe box set expanded to four CD’s, including a DVD featuring a documentary and the vinyl LP. “Rumours” spends thirty one weeks (non-consecutive) at number one on the Billboard Top 200, winning the Grammy Award for Album Of The Year in 1978, and is certified 20x Platinum in the US by the RIAA, earning a Double Diamond Certification.

On this day in music history: May 25, 1983 - “Holy Diver”, the debut album by Dio is released. Produced by Ronnie James Dio, it is recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA in Early 1983. The first album for the former Black Sabbath and Rainbow lead singer follows a central theme of the clash between good and evil forces. The album spins off two singles including “Rainbow In The Dark” (#14 Mainstream Rock) and the title track (#40 Mainstream Rock). Well received upon its release, in time it is regarded as Dio’s best album and one of the greatest heavy metal albums of all time. The albums cover artwork features a painting of a devil slaying a cleric, featuring the first appearance of the bands mascot “Murray” who is featured on several other albums by the band. “Holy Diver” peaks at number fifty six on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: February 25, 1992 - “Little Earthquakes”, the solo debut album by Tori Amos is released. Produced by Tori Amos, Eric Rosse, Davitt Sigerson, and Ian Stanley, it is recorded at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA, Stagg Street Studios in Van Nuys, CA, SquawkBox Studios, in Los Angeles, CA, and Strawberry Studios in Stockport, Greater Manchester, UK from Mid 1990 - Late 1991. A few years after an unsuccessful stint as the frontwoman for the synthpop band Y Kant Tori Read, Atlantic Records gives the songwriter and musician the opportunity to record her first solo project after hearing a ten song demo she has recorded in the interim. The new album is recorded in three phases, initial sessions take place with producer Davitt Sigerson (The Bangles), then at Rosse’s home studio in Los Angeles, and final sessions with former Tears For Fears keyboardist Ian Stanley in London. Much of the material on the album is autobiographical, focusing on Amos religious upbringing, self discovery, sex, bad relationships, childhood and early adult traumas including the harrowing “Me And A Gun” which depicts her own experience of being sexually assaulted. Bolstered by the tracks “Silent All These Years”, and “Crucify”, it is warmly received by Modern Rock radio.  The album is remastered and reissued on CD in 2015 as a double disc deluxe edition, with the second disc featuring eighteen additional bonus tracks. “Little Earthquakes” peaks at number fifty four on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 2x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: June 20, 1978 - “Double Vision”, the second album by Foreigner is released. Produced by Keith Olsen, it is recorded at the Atlantic Recording Studio in New York City, and Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA, from December 1977 - March 1978. Issued fifteen months after their eponymously titled debut, the band work with veteran rock producer Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Heart) on their sophomore release. The album is even more successful than their first, spinning off three hit singles including the top five hits “Hot Blooded” (#3 Pop), and the title track (#2 Pop). “Hot Blooded” is later featured in the film “Vision Quest” in 1985, and is sampled on Tone Loc’s Platinum selling single “Funky Cold Medina” in 1989. The album is remastered and reissued on CD in 2002 with two additional live bonus tracks. It is also reissued as a hybrid SACD and 180 gram vinyl LP by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab in 2011. “Double Vision” peaks at number three on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 7x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: June 5, 1976 - “Young Hearts Run Free” by Candi Staton hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #20 on the Hot 100 on August 21, 1976. Written and produced by Dave Crawford, it is the biggest hit for the Alabama born and raised R&B vocalist. Considered one of the quintessential Southern Soul artists, singer Candi Staton records her most successful record not in her native south, but in Southern California. Paired with producer Dave Crawford, best known for his work with The Mighty Clouds Of Joy and B.B. King, they cut the track for “Young Hearts Run Free” at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA. The single features musicians such as Ray Parker, Jr. and Jay Graydon on guitars, Ollie Brown on drums, Scott Edwards (Stuff) on bass, Funk Brothers percussionist Jack Ashford, Sylvester Rivers, Sonny Burke and Michael Boddicker on keyboards, and also features Rochelle Runnells of Stargard and Deniece Williams on background vocals. Regarded as a seminal R&B/Disco classic, “Young Hearts Run Free” has been covered numerous times over the years, most notably by Kym Mazelle on the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s film “Romeo + Juliet” and by Gloria Estefan for the “Desperate Housewifes” TV series.
