I have been enjoying a number of new CDs and books over the past few weeks. I am currently reading Rod Stewart's biography on my Kindle and it is a well written and enjoyable book.
On the CD front I am currently enjoying the lavish 35th anniversary deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. The set contains 4 CDs and a DVD and includes some great highlights from the recording sessions along with a live recording from 1977. Rumours is my all-time favourite album and this new set sits nicely alongside my original vinyl copy, a cassette, the original CD and subsequent 2-CD set and the recently published book Making Rumours. Sad I know! If only I had a signed copy of the album by all five band members to add to the collection :)
They will be touring the UK again in September (unfortunately without Christine McVie) and I am hoping to go to one of the concerts.
Finally I have been commissioned to write another article for Vintage Rock (my fifth for them) which should be published in March. Look out for copies in your local W. H. Smith.
