It includes a live version of "Landslide" (also recorded with the Melbourne Symphony), a knock-out version of Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll", the Deep Dish dance remix of "Dreams" and "Silver Springs" from the original master of "RUMOURS."  

Released in two configurations a stand alone CD and a CD/DVD Version.  The DVD component of "CRYSTAL VISIONS" offers 13 Stevie videos with voice-over commentary by Nicks.  Also included on the DVD is a never before seen Stevie Nicks home video which was filmed during the making of the five-times platinum "BELLA DONNA" album.  

One bonus track was offered on the digital version purchased via iTunes; a live version of "Stand Back" recorded in Las Vegas.
