The Royal Philharmonic and Peter Frampton cover “Rumours”

One of the most opinion-divisive albums, FLEETWOOD MAC’s “Rumours”, marked the band’s creative peak and their farthest move from their blues origins. Over the last year, this 1977’s masterpiece has been celebrated in many ways, including the record’s deluxe reissue and the “Mojo” magazine cover-mounted covers CD, but now it’s being taken to the new heights with the interpretation by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and famous guests.

The collective played rock numbers before, and this time the album is arranged by James Graydon, who worked with The Royal Philharmonic on the RUSH covers, and Richard Cottle, who worked with the likes of Eric Clapton. Yet, laid down at Abbey Road, it’s the first time for RPO to cover an entire record. So, to add to the value, here are two rock musicians on hand, steel guitarist Sarah Jory, whose credits feature Van Morrison, and Peter Frampton, who, like the MAC, moved from the HUMBLE PIE blues to the “Comes Alive” pop back in the ’70s. Meaning, it’s going to be golden indeed. The review is here.
