Fleetwood Mac (sometimes referred to as The White Album) was released by the band Fleetwood Mac in 1975. (see 1975 in music).

The album peaked at number one on the Billboard charts (where it remained for only one week, but set a record for most weeks on the chart before reaching the top position). It sold five million copies and launched three Top Twenty singles: "Over My Head," "Rhiannon" and "Say You Love Me."

Until the release of this album, Fleetwood Mac's albums generally sold around a quarter million. This eponymous album, then, helped launch them as musical superstars with an almost constant radio presence (which would be continued with their even more popular follow-up, Rumours).
