It wasn't Mo who made that quote. The actual quote was, "could you imagine Mo Ostin telling SN how to write songs?" And that was probably said by Rolling Stone's writer, I'd guess.

It's definitely not her style but I buy that it's her work. It sounds like she's trying to push her writing through the filter of "peppy little rock song you can dance to". Considering it was written VERY early in her career I'd imagine it was when she was still trying to find her niche and get her writing style down. "That's Alright" is super similar, I buy it's Stevie but it's Stevie pushed through the filter of country music.

Her song Angel is a better example of Stevie maintaining her style while accomplishing the peppy rock song vibe.
"I am just one small part of forever" -Think About It (The song that got me into Stevie Nicks)

"The face of a pretty girl x1,000,000" -Isn't It Midnight (The song that got me into Christine McVie)

"The sun is bright, but not too bright to see. When the darkness comes you've got to fly into the light." -Doing What I Can (The song that got me into Lindsey Buckingham)

"I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain" -The Chain (The song that got me into Fleetwood Mac)

Odd the interviewer asked about "Julia." Was it in the original running order?

To my taste ""Garbo" and "Sleeping Angel" are better than much of what made the album, but I can understand why they wouldn't want to include tracks that are predominantly acoustic.

Thanks for posting these clips. I enjoyed the story about Kind of Woman the most. Its very similar in meaning as Silver Springs. She really wanted to haunt Lindsey her entire life and it looks like she has succeeded

How Still My Love is definitely sexy and also my favorite from Bella Donna. I wish she would have confirmed who it was about. The timeline suggests Mick but it really could be anyone.

She is really on top of her game here. Voice strong voice and very confident. Her writing was pure poetry for this album. Bella Donna could have been a double album it was so rich with material and players.

Still I believe.....BACKSTABBING AND BETRAYAL will show us how

Hes described it as a Stevie song before there ever was a Rumours.
