    Assuming this is the same mastering of the black vinyl that came with the boxsets? And if this is true- are those considered good?

    Discogs says Chris Bellman mastered Tango In The Night on green vinyl. Not sure on the other Fleetwood Mac colored vinyl that Wal-Mart sells. I'm wondering if they are new masterings and how they sound.

    I know that Bellman mastered the most recent black vinyl pressing, so I'd assume they're from the same stampers.

    Probably going to pick one up, the price is right.

    I’ve got the colored vinyl Tusk and self-titled albums, both ordered from Amazon UK, and both are excellent. I assume these Walmart exclusives are the same pressings.

    I have the black vinyl still sealed from the box sets, I've only played the cds and surround discs. assuming these are the same mastering as the colored vinyl.

    Picked up Tango today, $17.99, flat as can be, CB in deadwax, comes inside the inner sleeve with lyrics/credits ala the original 1987 release.

    I really like 140/160g vinyl. It's usually perfectly flat and centered.

    Anyone know if the Tusk and white s/t are also CB, or if the Rumours is a Hoffman/Gray?

    it looks like Tusk and a/t are both Bellman cuts.

    I agree all the colored vinyl I buy is mostly 140/160 and I like it so much more than 180 never have the stupid warp issues.

    ordered Mirage and Fleetwood Mac. Already have Tango & Tusk newer versions on black vinyl. Also have a mint original US Rumours, not sure how much better the newer version will be to top that.

    I have them all except for the white vinyl Fleetwood Mac, which I will pick up this weekend.
    I think they were pressed by Record Industry in the Netherlands. These are really good bargains.

    If it's the Hoffman/Gray, it's better.

    Is the Rumours the Hoffman/Gray?

    The deadwax is super hard to read because it is clear.
    I don't see a SH KG signature like the one on the Van Morrison Moondance I own (Rhino Orange Vinyl Summer of 69 edition).
    I see some block numbers and some scribble that looks like VOIV or VIVO
    BB33893-A10 HL on side 1 and the same on side two except it is -B10 HL.

    Not the same numbers as the Euro 2019 edition of the same clear vinyl.
    Discogs is no help.

    Tango In The Night is definitely different. It has RI-25471 and BG26610-07 A 7 in the deadwax along with 087227946388 on side one. A CB is also in the deadwax.

    Perhaps Rumors silver is Optimal and Tango green Record Industry ? I have no clue.

    no it isn't the 2lp set. just single version. So the newer reissue would be better you think?

    honestly I have only started getting into Fleetwood mac & vinyl over the past year or so, so not that familiar with all their vinyl variations.
    I just happen to acquire a fairly large collection of vinyl that was siting around for the last 30 years or so a few years back and Rumours happened to be one the lps in it. Looks pretty much brand new still. I played it once and it sounded very good, but have nothing else to compare it too.

    Look in the runout groove for info. You can then do a search on Discogs to find out which pressing you have. The Hoffman/Gray-mastered versions were released in 2011.

    This is the single-disc 33rpm version.

    you got me curious so I checked. I know its not a 2011 issue because its been in a closet for the last 30-35 years. but this is what it says

    Label is Palm tree/BSK 3010/WB
    runout groove has: Bsk-2-3010-mca-4 F36
    mastered by capitol
    NY F115
    Also some kind of lettering- can't tell if its tl, kl, or H?

    maybe this can help clarify what Rumours I actually have.

    You'll have to do a search for it to determine what it is. You have the right info to find it which is already 10 steps ahead of most. :)

    I punched in some numbers and it seems to confirm what I thought. A FEB 4. 1977 US pressing.
    Looks like its 43rd anniversary will be in a few days then. It looks mint and sounds great. I still may pick up the colored vinyl version just to compare. I did receive Mirage and ST today. quick shipping from Walmart:righton:
