Iíve heard people say they donít think Stevie is on Magnet and Steel, so I defer to things like production notes before anything else. Because itís insane to me that anyone would say they donít think itís Stevie on Magnet and Steel, and thereís objective evidence to back that up- sheís credited on the song. Itís not just an opinion.

I donít hear Stevie on Heart of Stone, but she could be on it. But looking at the time frame, it seems very unlikely. She quit FM, then got into a tiff with Mick and they didnít speak for 2 years. The tiff started in 1991, and the Chain box set was released in 1992, which was when Heart of Stone and Love Shines were recorded. Iím trying to imagine a scenario where Stevie would be angry enough with Mick that she wouldnít speak to him, but then agree to return to sing backup vocals for one of Christineís songs. And not even both songs, but just one. Mick couldnít even get a new song from Stevie for the box set, even with the promise of a producer like Patrick Leonard, so they had to get Paper Doll off the shelf from 1988. It would be nice to think that Stevie would have reunited with FM for new songs in 1992, but does anyone see that as realistic?
