Stevie Nicks:"If You Ever Did Believe"(3:35)
Producers:Sheryl Crow,Jeff Trott
Writer:Stevie Nicks
Publisher:not listed
Warner Sunset/Reprise 9500(c/o Warner Bros.)(CD promo)

How wonderfully appropriate that Nicks has the lead single from the soundtrack to the witch-themed comedy 'Practical Magic, 'given her "Rhiannon"/Welsh Witch musical alter ego. After enduring a long stretch of Nicks and Fleetwood Mac nostalgia, it's a real treat to hear this enduring artist flex her distinctive voice on something new. A rush of earthy harmonies are provided by Sheryl Crow, who also produced this acoustic-rooted rocker with Jeff Trott. The tender loving care Crow gave the track is unmistakable-as is the single's instant overall accessibility. Although it's prime initial audience will be at triple-A and AC formats, mainstream rock radio programmers should also give this a serious listen.

Thanks to Johnny Stew for posting this to the Ledge and to Anusha for formatting and sending it to us.
