I got the box set too a few weeks ago. It's so well made (give us a Carpenters one!) Bobbie is such a cool artist.
It was only a few years ago I found out that Destiny’s Child had borrowed the opening guitar riff from Stevie’s “Edge of Seventeen” for their track “Bootylicious”. I couldn’t believe there was a whole other song behind that riff and was mesmerised by Stevie’s song. The song title came from a conversation she had with Tom Petty’s first wife, Jane, about the couple's first meeting. Jane said they met "at the age of seventeen", but her strong southern accent made it sound like "edge of seventeen". She liked the sound of the phrase so much that she told Jane she would write a song for it and give her credit for the inspiration.My latest artist I'm really getting into recently is Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac. Been listening to "Dreams" on repeat for days now
There's No Stopping Your Heart" is one of my favorites.OK, this is a stretch, Marie Osmond. Is anyone a Marie Osmond fan here? Not so much for her music with me, I did like Paper Roses back in 1973, but for just the amazingly beautiful woman she is! I saw her on some panel discussion show today, and was amazed at how well she has held up. What a beautiful woman! I love doe-eyed, brown-haired diminutive female singers!! Let's go back in time and appreciate this young beauty (yes, I understand that she was only around 15 at this time but I was all of 16!);
Nice choice, Stevie's a phenomenal talent. In 1977 after the "Rumors" album came out, Dreams was literally worn-out being played on Album Rock oriented FM stations down in southern California where I grew up.My latest artist I'm really getting into recently is Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac.

Here’s my favourite performance ever by Lindsay and Stevie and one of my favourite of all his compositions. Their onstage chemistry is still so evident, even though they’re standing apart for most of the song.Have you heard Silver Springs? Love this song which she wrote and performed about her break-up with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. So beautifully done;
Indeed. Her music is difficult to pin down to a specific genre - that's partly why it's so intriguing, although I suspect that it made her record company struggle to market her effectively after her first album.Having listened to all of her recordings, it's difficult to place her into one genre. Her first two albums were very much deep Mississippi country. Her last two or three were more pop.
This is the only footage available of her in Vegas (that I can find) check it out, this is wild!
Love it !Indeed. Her music is difficult to pin down to a specific genre - that's partly why it's so intriguing, although I suspect that it made her record company struggle to market her effectively after her first album.
Her last album Patchwork fell victim to record company changes/politics and kind of fell through the cracks as a result. She then couldn't agree terms with her label on future projects so didn't record any more until her contract expired. She did go on to record an album's worth of material on Warner Bros in the late 1970s - only a single was released at the time, but three more tracks randomly turned up on a compilation in the 1990s. This one is my favourite from those sessions - perhaps one day all the tracks from that time will see release:
Here are those other 3 songs from the Warner Bro sessionsWhat a song! I can imagine KC singing this and the arrangement RC would have given it. Sultry.
