Initial sessions for Fleetwood Mac's smash Rumours album took place in Studio B of The Record Plant in Sausalito, Calif., in '76 and '77. Richard Dashut co-roduced with Wally Heider engineer Ken Caillat. Before Rumours, the bandmembers had done most of their recording in L.A., but as Dashut told Mix in 1999, “Mick [Fleetwood] thought that if he took us out of our homes, we'd all have to hang out together with very few distractions.”
