Complete tour schedule follows this release.
BELLA DONNA: DELUXE EDITION is a three-CD set for $29.98 and THE WILD HEART: DELUXE EDITION is a two-CD set for $19.98. Both will be available on November 4. On the same day, newly remastered versions of the original albums will also be available on LP ($21.98) and CD ($11.98). The music will be available digitally and through streaming services as well. A complete list of cuts on both deluxe editions follows this release.
"I've had so much fun reliving the making of Bella Donna and The Wild Heart while working on the liner notes and listening to all of the alternate versions and demo takes," says Nicks. "The liner notes are so much more than liner notes. They are like a little novel. I tried to make whoever reads this feel like they were there. I think...I succeeded...."
Nicks joined producer Jimmy Iovine to begin recording songs for her solo debut, Bella Donna following the recording of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk and subsequent tour. The 1981 album was quickly certified platinum. Today, the album is 4x platinum thanks to Nicks classics like "Edge Of Seventeen," "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and "Leather And Lace" (with Don Henley).
BELLA DONNA: DELUXE EDITION uncovers unreleased versions of "Edge Of Seventeen" and "Leather And Lace," as well as rarities like "Blue Lamp" from the Heavy Metal Soundtrack and "Sleeping Angel" from the Fast Times At Ridgemont High Soundtrack. This deluxe edition also includes a concert from 1981 that features performances of songs from Bella Donna along with several Fleetwood Mac favorites.
Nicks returned in 1983 with her follow-up, The Wild Heart, which peaked at #5 on the album chart and has been certified double platinum. The album produced hits like "Stand Back," "Nightbird" and "I Will Run To You," which features Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. THE WILD HEART: DELUXE EDITION builds on the original album with unreleased versions of "All The Beautiful Worlds" a session version of "Wild Heart" and "Garbo," the B-side to "Stand Back."
