1.)There isn't a lot a Stevie Nicks fan can say about 'Bella Donna' that hasn't already been said over the past thirty-five years. The album is brilliant from start to finish and proved Stevie had what it takes to break away from Fleetwood Mac every now and then to satisfy her own creative needs. We've had these songs for years. Finally we have the entire album beautifully remastered - and the remaster is so beautiful it's like listening to the album for the first time again.
Disc One is the original album in all its remastered glory.
Disc Two contains real gems. There's a previously unreleased studio takes of "Gold and Braid," "The Dealer," and "If You Were My Love" along with alternate versions of "Think About It," "How Still My Love," "Leather and Lace," and "Sleeping Angel." The disc also includes an incredible demo of the title track as well as an 'early take' of "Edge of Seventeen." Rounding out Disc Two are remastered versions of the original releases "Sleeping Angel," which went to the soundtrack for 'Fast Times At Ridgemont High' and "Blue Lamp," from the 'Heavy Metal' soundtrack. If you're a lover of demos, alternate takes, and unreleased material this will be your favorite disc.
2.)Ask any Stevie Nicks fan what her best solo album is, and it's generally going to come down between 'Bella Donna' and 'The Wild Heart'. There isn't much to say about the songs themselves that hasn't already been said, so my review is here to address the sound quality of the remasters. These two albums have never sounded better. Most of 'Bella Donna' and a large chunk of 'Wild Heart' previously turned up remastered on the 1998 box set 'Enchanted', and the 2007 greatest hits 'Crystal Visions', and while those were an improvement over the flat and treble-heavy sound of the original CD's, the results were boomy in the case of 'Enchanted', and maximized-to-death on 'Crystal Visions'. The remastering on these new 2016 deluxe releases are absolutely perfect: the right amount of low end has been used without overpowering the rest of the mix. This is the closest I've ever come to hearing a digital version of either of these albums that match the natural and crisp sound of the LP records. Amazing, amazing mastering work by Bill Inglot, Steve Woolard, and Dan Hersch.
3.)Now, after 3 hit albums with Fleetwood Mac, Stevie did a big solo album of her own in 1981. It is perhaps her best solo effort, though she would continue to have success with later albums, most notably "Wild Heart" after doing "Mirage" in 1982 with Fleetwood Mac.
We not only get a newly remastered CD album, but 3 CDs and nicely done liner notes to boot! Whoever persona
