Now - why 2 versions of "Edge Of 17"? Well, the studio version obviously is the one most people would want, so it is right up front. But by ending the album with the same track, we complete the circle, which, in Stevie's mystical world, just might be a cosmic necessity. (The End is just The Beginning, right?) Also, this album needs a very muscular finish, and with Stevie, the backup singers, the rock musicians and the orchestra having a field day at the end with additional lyrics and instrumental passages, the finale is quite a musical catharsis. Whew! I'll say it again: 78 minutes of power and pleasure!
Well worth the wait and long time fans won't be disappointed.
This collection may not have all the original versions of her hits but the live verisons and remixes that do replace the originals are still worthy of a listen. The recent live version of "Rhiannon" is powerful, and hearing "Dreams" in a dance version brings this timeless song into the millennium. It's a treat to hear the original "Silver Springs". It's hard to believe this track was not included on the original pressing of "Rumours". It's simply brilliant, and it's easy to understand why Nicks was upset that it wasn't originally included. But at least this song is getting its due. It's become an important part of Nicks' legacy.
And there are so many more great songs: "Edge of Seventeen", "I Can't Wait", "Talk to Me", "Stand Back", and "Rooms on Fire".
It would have been a perfect collection if this compilation included "Gypsy" and "Sara", two of Nicks' finest songs with Fleetwood Mac, but ultimately integral to Nicks' own career.
Small quibbles aside, this is highly recommended.

|Bad video quality on DVD?||
The quality of the music videos is -- and should be quite clear and top notch. however, the "recording of Bella Donna" home movies, are just that, Stevie's home movies from 27 years ago, so they look just like home movies should from 1980-81: streaked, washed out and sometimes blurry. ... Read More

|Live versions + DVD||
At first i was disappointed that there were no new song on this album, I agree that the live versions and dvd content will be well worth it. I was hoping for a live dvd which was suppose to out, but this will hold me over until Stevie's next new project.
