A trove of treasure from a great musician

"I've never understood why fans buy boxed sets. They already have the music except for the one or two new songs included (which usually aren't worth a listen). "Enchanted", however, is different. Disc three was obviously created with the buyer in mind, and I bought "Enchanted" because of that disc. I'm sure I've saved piles of money!The songs she's released for movies ("Blue Lamp", "Battle of the Dragon", "Violet and Blue", and "Sleeping Angel" for instance) rank with some of her best tracks. However, there was no way I was ever going to shell out the bucks for all those cheesy soundtrack CDs! All these songs are included in "Enchanted".The inclusion of "Gold and Braid" is great! I loved that performance when I first heard it, and now I have it! Plus there's "Gold", a Buckingham Nicks song, "Garbo", a remix of "I Can't Wait", and lots of other great stuff here to warrant the purchase. Even some of the tracks taken from her CDs are actually slightly altered versions of the original songs. It's like they're going out of their way to make you feel good about purchasing this!As to the demos ("Twisted", "Sweet Girl", and "It's Late"), I was surprised how much I enjoyed these stripped down tracks. As a solo artist, I think Stevie Nicks is sometimes over-produced, and I found the simplicity and intimate energy of these straight-forward performances really refreshing. She sounded very relaxed and natural. I would've happily paid even more if they'd added a fourth disc like disc three. They could've included the rest of Stevie's Buckingham Nicks music, "Sorcerer", the remix of "The Nightmare" from the "I Can't Wait" maxi-single, unreleased studio tracks (there must be lots), and lots of demos. I bet stripped down demos of songs like "Sister Honey" or "If I Were You" would be revelations. Or how about that FM b-side "Book of Miracles"...But I guess they had to draw the line somewhere! Great job!"
"Enchanted" delivers a haunting spectrum of Nicks' Career

"Stevie Nicks' musical treasure, "Enchanted" is a masterpiece of incredible songs, reflecting an incredible career. Spanning many facets of this diva's life, "Enchanted" offers many bonuses to the Nicks fan. Firstly, the music is as always, incredible! The songs are bewitching, charming, and sincere. Nicks achieves an intimacy with her audience through her truthful lyrics and her haunting voice. Secondly, the box set offers many never released demos which are just buried treasure for all who love Stevie. All of the songs span her solo career, except for the very personal piano version of "Rhiannon". The box set is almost worth buying just for this version of the classic. It's a subtly charming cut that weaves into the listener's mind, creating fancy and dreams. Accompanying the music is this incredible libretto of sorts, which includes many great pictures of Stevie, and her own words concerning her music. She has often described this album as a photo collection of all her memories, and truly this is the feeling with "Enchanted". You feel as if you are sitting down with this incredible and rare scrapbook of a star. Enjoy!"
Definitive Stevie Nicks, right up through 1998

"Seeing as how Stevie has only released one album since 1998, the excellent _Trouble in Shangri-La_ in 2001, I think one won't go far wrong by getting that album and this box set (in fact Amazon makes it easy for you by offering just such a deal!) I said "box set" but that's a misnomer; this is really a booklet-set, with the three CD's set in the inside covers of a 64-page booklet crammed with photos in color and B&W (many of them previously unpublished when the compilation originally came out) and a complete set of lyrics for all the songs. The first two discs contain all of Stevie's solo singles (with the notable exception of "Sometimes It's A Bitch", her single off the 1991 greatest-hits compliation _Timespace_; I seem to remember Stevie saying that she really hated that title and released the song chiefly at the urging of her label executives) and B-sides, including several non-album songs that have never before been released on CD. The third disc is where a Stevie fan really hits the jackpot, because here one finds demos, unreleased songs, rare tracks from movie soundtracks, the famous "Golden Braid" which was long a staple of her live sets (here we see that the real name of the song is "Gold and Braid") and even a cover of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" with Stevie on guitar!
As a Stevie fan for over 20 years, I simply can't say enough good things or heap enough praise on this superb collection. If you're at all interested in Stevie Nicks, buy this item today!"
