Stevie Nicks’ Bella Donna, released in 1981, marks her triumphant solo debut, showcasing a departure from her Fleetwood Mac roots. Crafted with producer Jimmy Iovine, the album blends rock, pop, and country, enriched by Nicks’ mystical lyricism and distinctive vocals. Key tracks like “Edge of Seventeen” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” a duet with Tom Petty, highlight her versatility and collaborative spirit. Bella Donna achieved multi-platinum success, cementing Nicks’ status as a solo star. Its cultural impact resonates through generations, influencing female rock artists and maintaining a revered place in the pantheon of classic rock albums.

In advance of the meeting, Colleen will send out a ‘Musical Lead-Up Playlist’ of 10 songs – music that will set the tone for the deep album listening featuring Stevie Nicks’ inspirations and other bands in their milieu at that time.

At the meeting, itself, Colleen tells the story behind the album for about 20 minutes and then we listen to the album in its entirety without interruption following our listening guidelines – phones off and no talking. To be clear, its up to you to source whichever copy of the album you can get your hands on – streaming online, CD, vinyl – whatever it is. We don’t broadcast the album over Zoom as you won’t have a great listening experience.

After the album finishes we reconvene and have a discussion about the album and our listening experience.

Patreon Members and higher tiers can attend the Album Club. You can subscribe here and don’t forget you can unsubscribe at any time.

We hope you can join us and thanks for listening!
