Remember how we all used to watch those late-night appearances religiously? They always came in clusters, like right before a tour.

It's crazy that I have been a fan since 1975 and I do not remember this? I don't believe I have on tape either. Great find!

She also performed on Letterman promoting Enchanted around the same time. The Enchanted tour was probably her best solo tour excluding Bella Donna of course. She really dug into her material and had a great band. She touched both my hands during her Edge walk

Mine too! By that point I had been to many Stevie shows but that was the 1st one that I was able to do the Edge walk. I went to 3 shows on that tour and loved them all but I thought that the Street Angel Tour was a little bit better. She really pour herself into the SA performances and she also had Rick Vito with her so it was a win-win. But I do think that the Enchanted Tour was the last great tour that she has done. I especially liked Enchanted,
Gold and Braid, After the Glitter Fades, Garbo, Rose Garden, Sleeping Angel,
Twisted, and Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You?

I thought the Storytellers released from that tour was just AWFUL.

I think her voice really changed towards the end of the Enchanted tour. The last of the high notes.

The 06 tour with Petty actually got her to up her vocals for 2007 and most of 2009.

She went up for the end of Rhiannon for the last few shows of 2007. She started hitting the high Stop Draggin My Heart Arounds in the chorus. The what you had in Dreams, the "and it lights up the night" in Gypsy, and she went pretty high in Storms in 2009.

I think Street Angel was the last of the high notes. She still had the Stevie rasp. When she quit smoking and hired a voice coach for The Dance, she was flat ever since.

For me, the joy of the Street Angel concerts was that she had her vibrato back. She even said on the radio that year how she had her vibrato back. I was delighted because in 1991, she had no vibrato and I missed it. Her vocals sounded so forced, so unnuanced in 1991 (as they also had intermittently in 1989ólisten to Beauty and the Beast on the Houston radio show).

Bummer that, in recent years, she is back to being nearly vibrato-free (except I suppose on Landslide). She is back to braying like an equine. I think the volume of the band pushes her to increase her air expulsion, as if she were competing with Waddy Wachtelís amplifier. I was hoping she would slide into old age the Judy Garland way: with a hyperemphatic vibrato that shook the timbers. I donít care as much about tonality if thereís a tantalizing vibrato. Pop singer voices should wobble up and down.
