Stevie Nicks has plummeted her own archive for 24 Carat Gold – Songs From The Vault, a collection of unreleased recordings and demo reworkings from the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Why they have remained unreleased until now is anyone’s guess, but we should be grateful that we can now enjoy such recordings as The Dealer, Blue Water and Starshine alongside covers of Vanessa Carlton’s Carousel, and Mark Knopfler’s She Loves Him Still. Each title betraying their Songs From The Vault tag as if they were recorded yesterday!
A treat for anyone who loves Stevie Nicks’ work with Fleetwood Mac and her solo outings particularly from The Other Side of the Mirror period.
