“Tusk,” Fleetwood Mac (their 12th album was the follow-up to 1977’s massively successful “Rumours,” featuring the title track, “Sara” and “Not That Funny”; at the time, it was the most expensive rock album ever made, costing more than $1 million; it wasn’t a commercial failure, selling over 4 million copies, but it’s unfair to compare it to “Rumours,” which is the one of the biggest-selling LPs of all-time, at 29.3 million worldwide; producers: Fleetwood Mac, Richard Dashut, Ken Caillat; Warner)
