Drawn from a 2007 PBS TV performance, The Soundstage Sessions finds Stevie Nicks reconsidering her song catalog with a reflective, insightful spirit. Arena rock overkill and diva dramatics are largely absent; these tunes are handled with affection and subtlety, revealing fresh colors. Nicks’ husky vocals are as seductive as ever, especially when applied to mystically tinged material like “Sorcerer” and “Circle Dance.” Tender versions of “Landslide” and “Beauty and the Beast” achieve a poignant blend of fragility and resolve; the rockers — especially “Fall from Grace” — are muscular without being overbearing. Nicks glides effortlessly above the synthesizer-driven “Stand Back” and “If Anyone Falls In Love,” wraps herself in sultry airs for the pulsating “How Still My Love,” and infuses Dave Matthews’ “Crash Into Me” with her own special brand of conflicted desire. Rather than simply running through her obvious hits, Nicks chooses songs for their flow and substance on this outstanding set.
A MUST buy for the Stevie Nicks fan's collection
When I was 13 a friend gave me Fleetwood Mac's Rumours Album. I was mesmorized by Gold Dust Woman and Stevie Nicks, I have every FM and Stevie Nick's solo albums, then I bought them again in CD. Compilation albums usually have me ho hum because they are cherry picking albums and for the most casual fan. And apart for the 2 covers I was like, why should I buy these songs again? I'll tell you why, because Stevie Nicks is the not only the original and Best Queen of Rock but even at 61 she mixed these songs up and her voice and this music is awe inspiring. I agree with previous raters about Sara, Edge of Seventeen and Gold Dust Woman. But don't underestimate the power of this version of Beauty and the Beast. It took my breath away. So glad I decided to buy this album, you should too. You won't regret it.
Stevie has proven to be the long distance winner!
Great collection of some of her classics mixed in with some of her lesser know jewels! Stevie is timeless, and proves that she has endured and still rocks the house down. The covers of Bonnie Raitts's "Circle Dance" & Dave Matthews Band "Crash" are both beautiful and with Stevie singing them, she makes them her own...Highly recommended!!!
Stevie Live at her BEST!
I have been a fan of Stevie Nicks since I was 10 years old and this live collection is amazing! Her voice is haunting, visceral, full of emotion and etches out things we all have been through. The first time I heard Circle Dance she performed in Ft. Lauderdale and she said that when she heard Bonnie Raitt’s original she played it over and over and cried her eyes out and said she had to do it. This truly is a gift on this track. The full string arrangements on Landslide, Beauty and the Beast capture the moments in her life and transcend them to us. Whether you are a new fan or one who has been there from the beginning, this is a great cd and must have of Stevie Nicks of which I highly recommend.
