Bella Donna is the first solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks, originally released in July 1981 by Modern Records.

Stevie Nicks' solo career was off to an impressive, if overdue, start with Bella Donna, which left no doubt that she could function quite well without the input of her colleagues in Fleetwood Mac.

After three albums with Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks was doubtlessly the most recognizable figure in that popular and talented band. However, her actual participation as far as songwriting and lead vocals had never eclipsed 50% on any of those albums. So prior to her debut solo effort in 1981, there was uncertainty about how a full album of her music would pan out. One serious listen to Bella Donna would set all doubt aside. This debut solo album went on to achieve critical and commercial success, topping the U.S. album charts and spawning four Top 40 hit singles, while reaching the Top 20 in six other nations.

The album yielded a number of hits that seemed omnipresent in the '80s, including the moving "Leather And Lace" (which unites Nicks with Don Henley), the poetic "Edge Of Seventeen", and her rootsy duet with Tom Petty, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around". But equally engaging are less exposed tracks like the haunting "After The Glitter Fades" a pure country song, reminiscent to some of Olivia Newton John’s early stuff, with dynamic vocals nicely complimenting to rich arrangement, which contains virtuoso piano by Roy Bittan and masterful pedal steel by Dan Dugmore.

Stevie Nicks of course continued on with Fleetwood Mac as well as producing more solo albums with much success in both throughout the rest of the 1980s and well into the 1990s. But artistically, she would not again reach the heights of Bella Donna in either side of her musical career.

Bella Donna peaked at #1 on the US Billboard 200, #11 on the UK and #1 on the Australian Albums charts.

Check out the singles from the album: “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”; “Leather And Lace”; “Edge Of Seventeen” and “After The Glitter Fades”.

This reissued LP with remastered audio with replicated artwork is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
