Stevie Nicks says that making her latest solo album, 2011's "In Your Dreams," was "the best year of my life." And she's even happier to have it chronicled on film.

Directed by David A. Stewart, the former Eurythmics member who co-produced and co-wrote the album, the "In Your Dreams" documentary will be shown for one night only on April 2 in North American theaters; locations and ticket information can be found at www.inyourdreamsmovie.com. This follows showings at several film festivals during 2011 and 2012, most recently at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, where Nicks also performed with Dave Grohl's Sound City Players.


"It's a magical little film," Nicks tells Billboard. "It really allows you to sit right there with us through the entire year of the making of 'In Your Dreams,' and it's funny. It's really funny. It's really compassionate and it's at my house for a whole year. Dave's team during 2011 took it down from a whole year to three hours and myself, my assistant and Dave's editor took it down from there to an hour and 40 (minutes). It shows how hard it was to make (the album) and also how much fun it was and how magical it was. I hope that when people see it they really want to hear the record, even if they didn't know I had a record out." "In Your Dreams" debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 in May of 2011 and has sold 188,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Well, considering that albums sales across the board are less than a third of what they were ten years ago, 188,000 is a solid showing- it would have been a gold album back in the day.

shocking that this record (arguably her best solo album) has sold so little.

and i wish they had hired a more experienced editor for the film.
the cheesy dated effects throughout give it a really amateurish feeling.

thats what the record business is like today its all interenet driven. records don't sell anymore! Its does not mean that the record is not good. because it really is good!!!

It does not mean records don't sell anymore. it means crooked music industry executives erase selling numbers and profits from the books, then tell artists their songs didn't sell well because of "internet piracy". it also means the ruler of all major money-making industries -- the Illuminati -- is subject to cause and effect, just like anything else within this universe.
