        I remember them playing the radio at my very first job ( Go your own way) back in '77. Damn time flies.

          Following over two months in Sausalito, Fleetwood arranged a ten-day tour to give the band a break and fan feedback. After the concerts, recording resumed at venues in Los Angeles,[10] including Wally Heider Studios. Christine McVie and Nicks did not attend most of the sessions and took time off until they were needed to record any remaining vocals. The rest of Fleetwood Mac, with Caillat and Dashut, struggled to finalise the overdubbing and mixing of Rumours after the Sausalito tapes were damaged by repeated use during recording; the kick and snare drum audio tracks sounded "lifeless".[11] A sell-out autumn tour of the US was cancelled to allow the completion of the album,[2] whose scheduled release date of September 1976 was pushed back.[27] A specialist was hired to rectify the Sausalito tapes using a vari-speed oscillator. Through a pair of headphones which played the damaged tapes in his left ear and the safety master recordings in his right, he converged their respective speeds aided by the timings provided by the snare and hi-hat audio tracks.[11] Fleetwood Mac and their co-producers wanted a "no-filler" final product, in which every track seemed a potential single. After the final mastering stage and hearing the songs back-to-back, the band members sensed they had recorded something "pretty powerful".[28]

            Rumours was a simply unbelievable rock album and I was fortunate to see Fleetwood Mac live at MSG in '77 at their peak. The song lyrics and music were just unbelievable. Not sure I've ever been to a concert where the crowd was more into the music ever. 'Course the artificial stimulants available back then might have had a little to do with that. Remember seeing Dylan in '77 at MSG also that summer and you had to peer thru a cloud of smoke to see the mam!

            In 1976, in the face of deteriorating personal relationships and massive record company pressure, Fleetwood Mac managed to create a record that would go on to sell 30 million copies.

              The tapes "degraded" because they played the snot out of them and that particular tape formulation from Ampex had issues according to the article.

              there was nothing unusual about the multitrack production, many albums were created the same way. Ditto for the bad tape formulations that replaced the tried and true formulas from the 50's and 60's. They were commonplace in the 70's.

              Sounds to me that they repeatly recorded and then erased the tapes. Is that what you infer Mark?
