Unusual Rumors Fact

It's no surprise that Rumours, the 1977 Fleetwood Mac album that became one of the biggest releases in recording history is still selling well.  What is surprising is how many buyers of the album more than 30 years after its debut are the same ages as the fans that bought it when it first came out.  The angst and anger driven music most younger bands spew has driven many young people seeking music that speaks to their less aggressive side back in time.  John Sklute, who runs Good Records in New York City, says young customers seeking Classic Rock albums are regulars.  So many, that Rumours is a constant presence in his top 10 sales figures.  Sklute calls the record "emblematic of a certain type of record that is selling a lot to younger kids."
