The band's 1977 collection debuted at number 77 on February 27 of that year, meaning the record will re-enter almost 36 years after its initial outing.
However, it wasn't until the following year (January 1978) that Rumours finally hit number one on the UK chart, reports The Official Charts Company.
To date, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours has spent a total of 493 weeks on the Official Albums Chart, making it the most charting collection in British music history.
It is trailed by Queen's Greatest Hits at 484 charting weeks and Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell with 474 weeks.
Fleetwood Mac's Rumours is due to re-enter the UK Top 10 this Sunday (February 3) after a deluxe re-issue was released earlier this week.
Meanwhile, Mick Fleetwood has confirmed that the band will headline some UK shows later this year, and teased the possibility of a new album.
