    I gave up finding my textured US pressing. Life is to short. All I know: mastered by CAPITOL, a lot of letters and numbers I could not find, and in NM condition - That’s enough for me.

      Can anybody shed some light on who "CJ" in the runouts is?

        Okay, now that I've given this a few dedicated listenings, here's my repeated experience with my copy.

        Snagged for $5 from Record Surplus in Santa Monica, dubiously marked "AS IS—". Visual inspection in store turned up VG, so For a Fiver I Got Rumours™.

        After cleaning four or five times per side, the hissing and popping is so minor I hardly ever notice it, so I feel like I've gotten a fairly honest assessment of the recording quality. There are two skip points within 30 seconds of each other at the end of "Go Your Own Way," one of which is a truly magnificent loop within the guitar solo's climax, so perfectly framed that it feels somehow designed. I genuinely love it. Side 2 is, somewhat disappointingly, excellent.

        Through all of that, the legendary production of this album shows clearly. Absolutely every instrument and voice is its own autonomous entity in the soundspace, working perfectly with each other, exacting and precise. The first thing I've noticed in an LP listening versus streaming, which I'm used to, is how much MORE there is! Whole instruments I didn't realize were there. Little licks and flourishes I'd never heard before. New dimensions to the outro of "Gold Dust Woman" which already always blew my mind. The funky, bouncy bass lines. Finally "getting" the hype about Mick Fleetwood's genius as a percussionist. It's amazing now to think that I had always considered Fleetwood Mac as kind of a "soft" rock band. As it turns out, I just wasn't hearing ALL of it, and it's wonderfully complex, compositionally, emotionally, sonically, taxonomically...

        Anyway, if I can get repeatedly blown away by an obviously well loved 46 year old LP, then it is clearly of the highest caliber. I nominate Side 2 for Greatest Side of All Time.

        5/5. Duh.

          Also in the vinyl bag I have this info W/18/77? Is there any info or photo of that inner bag.

            "They were also printed with a centered number "0798" in the middle of the spine on the LP cover."

            Is this number only printed in this version or could there be other versions where is the Same number in the middle of the spine? 🤔 Having Hard time To find which version I have. ☹️

              Does anyone else see "Pitman" or "putnam" etched on this?

                The one to get says "mastered by Capitol" in deadwax and is one of my favorite albums in my collection. this is the one you put on to show friends what you mean when you gush about the "warmth" of the vinyl.

                  funny cover : thin man´s testicles swinging freely....out of trousers. Pretty woman trying to catch them...family jewels.

                    My copy has WW2 F11 and a ‘1’, &
                    LW1 F6 and a ‘2’. Curiously, the ‘2’ looks like ‘CJ’.

                      Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" . . . what else can be said that hasn't already been said? We know it was one of the highest grossing albums Fleetwood Mac ever put out . . . that more than half of the titles listed on the album made it to the radio . . . and that bringing Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham into it made this band outstandingly unique!!! Once again, if at all possible, it would be my honor to introduce to you the very best single LP of Fleetwood Mac . . . "Rumors"!!!
