- The Edge of Seventeen….
Watch the Defiant Ones
There’s a bit of Stevie in that https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80214552?preventIntent=truePosted 2 months agoCountZeroMember
You should start with Buckingham/Nicks, the album Stevie and Lindsay were recording at the same time Fleetwood Mac were looking for a way forward, and it got them the job with Fleetwood Mac. It’s been unavailable for many years, I bought a vinyl copy in the late 70’s/early 80’s, only to find it was warped, took it back and the album had been deleted!Posted 2 months ago
A remastered CD with a second CD of outakes and non-album tracks has been released this year, and is really worth having.
As far as Stevie’s solo albums are concerned, I’ve got Bella Donna, Rock A Little and The Wild Heart – Bella Donna has Edge Of Seventeen, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, a duet with Tom Petty, and a bunch of other good songs, the other two are pretty decent too.
She’s a great singer, and a great performer too.jateMember
She always wanted to be a member of the Hearbreakers (Petty’s band) but apparently it was very much a blokes only setup. Petty wrote Stop Draggin’ for her and there’s some great footage on that there YouTube thing of her performing it with Petty. I always had a soft spot for Silver Springs which was supposed to be on Rumours but Buckingham blocked it, so it ended as the B side to Go Your Own Way. Excellent live versions are on YouTube however.Posted 2 months ago
Oh and hi to CountZero; trust you’ve got past being accused (along with the rest of us oldies) of being a “stern faced CIS male McStan” on Instagram by Ms McKee!!Malvern RiderMember
She’s still doing it and very well.
I really didn’t like Fleetwood Mac for most of my life and then one day heard a song playing on a young colleague’s bluetooth speaker. I asked them what it was and it was this
Captivating. And the music is so stripped back, and the drumming so ‘in the pocket’. It’s just perfection. As is her voice. She does looks ripped to the toots in that performance to be fair 😉
You should probably check out some other classics such as Rhiannon, Landslide, Gypsy etcPosted 2 months ago
