Stevie Nicks, The Wild Heart (1983)
I came back from last week’s Fleetwood Mac concert newly enthralled by Stevie Nicks – she’s great, and I’ve obviously always thought so, but just lately I’ve been talking about the band and reducing her role somewhat, baffled, I guess, by her super-fans’ devotion. But, man, get her deep inside a song and she’s amazing. I own a few of the solo albums and this one’s always been a favourite – the track Stand Back featuring Prince on keyboards is reason enough to own this. I think I bought up the first three Nicks solo albums while amassing Fleetwood Mac records some 20 years ago. Well, I need to go back through the Nicks solo canon. And I’m starting here.
Sample Track: Nightbird
