Heart – The Essential Heart

A double CD highlighting the extraordinary songwriting talents of the Wilson sisters. CD 1 takes us from the pyrotechnic folk rock of “Crazy On You” and the Ice-T-sampled “Magic Man” through the kick-ass “Barracuda” on to the Zeppelinesque blues of the early ’80s, while CD 2 concentrates on their later MTV-friendly mainstream rock. It’s not perfect?there’s no “Mistral Wind” or “Rockin’ Heaven Down” to display vocalist Ann’s excessive best?but glorious nonetheless.
