Complete Demo List

My wish for this page is to compile a complete list of all circulating Stevie Nicks demos and outtakes. Right now I know it’s horribly outdated, but I’m planning on updating it regularly.

I welcome any corrections, comments or feedback to, but make sure to put "Stevie Nicks" or something similar in the subject line or the email will probably get filtered out to junk mail.

Here’s how I define a Demo or an Outtake:

Demo: simple music and vocal track; usually just voice accompanied by piano or a drum machine

Outtake: full music and polished vocal track

If you are wondering where you can get any of these songs, please consider joining the Ivory Keys group on Facebook.
