REVIEW: ★★★★ stars out of 5 Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold - Songs From the Vault

Stevie Nicks. 24 Karat Gold - Songs From the Vault
by Mark Orton
Otago Daily Times

For all the guys who fantasised about being with her and the girls who wanted to be her, Stevie Nicks is back to her best with an album of new tracks that could have been plucked from the '70s and '80s.

After the theft of demos from her house, Nicks put Dave Stewart in the producer's chair and with a host of rock legends reworked the previously unheard tracks.

24 Karat Gold is so laden with gems it seems absurd only to hear them now.

Stewart stays faithful to a hazy vibe synonymous with Nicks' sultry huskiness, as Stevie reels back her years of romantic misfortune.

Listen to Stevie Nicks talk about "Carousel" the one song included on the album that wasn't a previously written / archived demo. It was written by Vanessa Carlton and Stevie explains why she included it on the album.

Out Now! Order from

Wow-that's an amazing story, will have to look for the picture of Sulamith now... I really love this song and think it's so beautifully sung. I'm really not familiar with Vanessa Carlton's music and have only heard a snippet of her original version of this song but may check her out one day. I love the lyrics of this song too. It makes me think of the Joni Mitchell song, The Circle Game, whenever I hear it!
