With half the new Stevie Nicks album bearing his name and a new Joss Stone offering coming later this month you cannot help but wonder how he found time to round up the talent and lay down the tracks for this new project.
Including songs he wrote with Bob Dylan and collaborations with Stone and Nicks and Martina Mc Bride, it’s a high-quality, bluesy, American-flavoured affair with Dave himself sounding like the veteran music man he really is.
The Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell plays an assortment of instruments and co-wrote a couple of tracks, though not as many as Dave Stewart, who also co-produced the disc with Glenn Ballard. Nicks opens with "Secret Love", a sturdily pulsing piece blitzed by growling powerchords as she sings of "a timeless search for a love that might work".
Vocal harmonies and acoustic guitars underpin the affecting "For What It's Worth" (no relation to the Stephen Stills one), while the pick of the bunch may be the title track, a scintillating blast of jangle-rock which harks back to the days when Nicks used to hang around with Tom Petty and his crew. Nicks, still festooned in hats, feathers and bodice-ripper gowns after all these years, channels Edgar Allan Poe in "Annabel Lee", runs with the Undead in "Moonlight (A Vampire's Dream)", and evokes vampire chronicler Anne Rice in "New Orleans". In Your Dreams lasts half an hour longer than Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, and the longer it goes on, the more you want to start pelting it with rotten fruit.
How time's don't change - she's still keeping it 'chiffon'.
Best-known as a member of the legendary Fleetwood Mac, Nicks has sold over 140 million albums worldwide also enjoying success as a solo artist.
Cheaper Than Free Stevie Nicks is one of the most iconic female musicians of all-time.
Producer Dave Stewart has helped create an album that sounds exactly like the Nicks of myth: spooky, otherworldly, emotional and sassy, yet stalked by some undefinable melancholy.
Mac bandmates and old flames Mick Fleetwood and Lindsay Buckingham guest, and while the latter doesn't lift Soldiers Tale above Nicks-by-numbers, the frisson of the Mac's complex romantic entanglements stalks Secret Love, written during the Rumours era.
