Fleetwood Mac: The Elements Of Rumours
After two months of hedonistic and turbulent music-making, the band felt they had tapes that were ready. Christine McVie and Nicks promptly left the studio to the men to do their post-production. However, a near-tragedy struck when the tapes were used so much in these sessions they wore out. The band's sold-out 1976 tour was cancelled so that they could concentrate on getting the album finished and a specialist expert called in to restore the tapes. All teetered on a knife's edge.
