I've never understood why fans buy boxed sets. They already have the music except for the one or two new songs included (which usually aren't worth a listen). "Enchanted", however, is different. Disc three was obviously created with the buyer in mind, and I bought "Enchanted" because of that disc. I'm sure I've saved piles of money!
The songs she's released for movies ("Blue Lamp", "Battle of the Dragon", "Violet and Blue", and "Sleeping Angel" for instance) rank with some of her best tracks. However, there was no way I was ever going to shell out the bucks for all those cheesy soundtrack CDs! All these songs are included in "Enchanted".
The inclusion of "Gold and Braid" is great! I loved that performance when I first heard it, and now I have it! Plus there's "Gold", a Buckingham Nicks song, "Garbo", a remix of "I Can't Wait", and lots of other great stuff here to warrant the purchase. Even some of the tracks taken from her CDs are actually slightly altered versions of the original songs. It's like they're going out of their way to make you feel good about purchasing this!
As to the demos ("Twisted", "Sweet Girl", and "It's Late"), I was surprised how much I enjoyed these stripped down tracks. As a solo artist, I think Stevie Nicks is sometimes over-produced, and I found the simplicity and intimate energy of these straight-forward performances really refreshing. She sounded very relaxed and natural.
I would've happily paid even more if they'd added a fourth disc like disc three. They could've included the rest of Stevie's Buckingham Nicks music, "Sorcerer", the remix of "The Nightmare" from the "I Can't Wait" maxi-single, unreleased studio tracks (there must be lots), and lots of demos. I bet stripped down demos of songs like "Sister Honey" or "If I Were You" would be revelations. Or how about that FM b-side "Book of Miracles"...
But I guess they had to draw the line somewhere! Great job!
