Continuing the 22nd – running between 30 July and 8 August and featuring my top ten Fleetwood Mac tracks – here’s Rhiannon, is a song written by Stevie Nicks and taken from Fleetwood Mac’s 2nd eponymous album released in 1975.

Voted  No. 488 in “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” by Rolling Stone magazine the single version’s Its US chart peak was in June 1976, when it hit No. 11. It peaked at No.46 in the UK singles chart for three weeks after re-release in February 1978.

Between 1975 and 1980, Fleetwood Mac’s live performances of “Rhiannon” took on a theatrical intensity building the song to a climax in which Stevie Nicks’ vocals were so impassioned that, as drummer and band co-founder Mick Fleetwood recalled, “her Rhiannon in those days was like an exorcism.”
