Track List

Background

In the late 1970s, Stevie Nicks launched Modern Records with record executives Danny Goldberg and Paul Fishkin as a vehicle for the backlog of unrecorded material that Stevie had amassed over the years. With help of producer Jimmy Iovine and high-profile acts, such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Eagles member Don Henley, Bella Donna became a critical and commercial success. Stevie later earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Rock Performance for “Edge of Seventeen.”

Release

Modern Records released Bella Donna on Monday, July 27, 1981. It reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart and produced the Top 40 singles “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” “Leather and Lace,” “Edge of Seventeen,” and “After the Glitter Fades.”

In 2004, the RIAA certified the album 5X platinum for the shipment of five million units to retailers. Bella Donna remains Stevie Nicks’ best selling album to date.
