The members partied and used cocaine for much of the recording sessions, and its completion was delayed by its mixing process, but was finished by the end of
Which makes it all the weirder that Rumours sounds so innocent and so much fun. An upbeat country rock song from Stevie Nicks that dates from well before the Rumours sessions.
