Stevie Nicks – Beauty and the Beast (live 1986 Radio Broadcast) Review

Album Review: Beauty and the Beast (live 1986 Radio Broadcast) by Stevie Nicks

Poor Sound, but it is a bootleg after all….

71rTySi5VRL._SL1064_I was gifted this CD as an Xmas present and was curious hear the quality of this set, I did not expect a stellar live recording and my fears were as expected fully justified, the sound quality is poor for a ‘supposed’ official release (would rate this a B+ in the bootleg world) and the packaging is pretty average.

If you want to hear Stevie singing live I would suggest the official Soundstage set from 2009 is worth your hard-earned money, not this set that is really only a bootleg and i do wonder how the publishers get hold of these recordings and are allowed to sell them via Amazon, I suspect Ms Nicks sees nothing of the royalties here. Also bear in mind that if you look hard enough online or engage with Stevie Nicks fans online, I dare say that this recording (and others) exist as bootlegs that can normally be sourced for free.

Two stars out of five
