Fleetwood Mac have shared the unreleased live rendition of their hit “Go Your Own Way” from the upcoming Rumours Live, a double-LP capturing that band’s victory lap at the Forum in Los Angeles following the release of their 1977 masterpiece.

Recorded 46 years and two days ago today — August 29, 1977 — Rumours Live finds the classic Mac lineup —  Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham — performing the majority of tracks off both 1975’s Fleetwood Mac and Rumours, as well as their 1969 Peter Green-era hit “Oh Well.”

With the exception of the night’s “Gold Dust Woman,” the nearly 90-minute gig had remained unreleased until next Friday, September 8, when Rumours Live arrives. The concert was the first of three that Fleetwood Mac played at their stop at the Forum, performing to a sold-out crowd of 50,000 over the course of three nights six months after the release and eventual chart-topping rise of Rumours.

Engineer Ken Caillat, who helped record Rumours, also recorded the Forum concert using the Record Plant’s mobile recording truck. Rumours Live is available for pre-order now. The black-vinyl version has two 180-gram records in a gatefold jacket with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, while a crystal clear-vinyl version of the LPs will be exclusively available at Wal-Mart.
