Stevie Nicks 'Bella Donna' (Deluxe Edition) Enters Billboard Top 200 Chart

Stevie Nicks, Bella Donna (Deluxe Edition) - No. 128: A new expanded version of Stevie Nicks’ 1981 solo debut album, Bella Donna, arrives on the chart with 5,000 units earned. The original album reached No. 1, and remains Nicks’ only solo chart-topper.

The revamped deluxe title -- which features 25 additional tracks -- charts separately from the original album, and its sales history is also tracked independently of the original release.

The original Bella Donna album climbed to No. 1 on the list dated Sept. 5, 1981 and also marked the icon’s first of so-far nine top 40-charting efforts. She most recently visited the top 40 with her 2014 album 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, which debuted and peaked at No. 7.

Bella Donna also sports the most top 40-charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 of any Nicks album, as it launched four hits into the region. Its lead-off single, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, peaked at No. 3 (for six weeks!). It was followed by “Leather and Lace,” with Don Henley (which reached No. 6), “Edge of Seventeen” (No. 11) and “After the Glitter Fades” (No. 32).


Bella Donna along with The Wild Heart chart on the Top Catalog Albums Chart coming in at #7 and #15.  On the Top 100 Album Sales Chart for the week Bella Donna enters at #59 with The Wild Heart entering at #85 with sales of 4,302 and 3,175 units.

This was THE album for me in my college years and remains one of my all time favorites. I just ordered this expanded new release and can't wait to re-immerse myself in the magic of the album.

I debated investing more money in material I already had in my possession (for the most part), but after I decided to go old school and walk to one of the few remaining music stores in my city, I bought both remastered versions of Bella Donna & The Wild Heart on CD. I have to admit, I had no idea I would be so elated with my purchase. It had been quite some time since I listened to either of the original releases, but something about the updated versions awakened everything in me that made me fall in love with Stevie and her music back in the early 1980s. For the first time in a VERY long time, I find myself singing and moving/dancing to her music as if I was hearing it for the first time. The best $40 dollars I've spent in a while. :)
