On this day in….1985:
Stevie releases her third solo album, “Rock A Little”. The album reached #12 on the Billboard chart and was certified platinum within a month of its release. The recording process was notoriously troubled. Jimmy Iovine was supposed to produce the follow up to The Wild Heart but left in 1985, supposedly because Stevie was increasingly difficult to work with due to a growing cocaine addiction. A complete album of recordings was scrapped in early 1985 and the release date was delayed several times.
It’s no secret that I love this album, it’s just wild, crazy and excessive in everything, and with some many demos floating around there are basically 3 Rock A Little albums instead of just 1.
"I Can’t Wait" was the first music video of Stevie’s I ever saw…and my life changed forever! <3
