4.0 out of 5 stars Pre-UK-fame days 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Canadian folk rockers Heart released seven albums to world-wide acclaim...well, wordlwide never included the UK in the 1970s, since the popular music scene was held back like a retarded child by the radio 1 playlist policy. Here are five of those seven albums that were unleashed on the world before their first hit single in the UK.

Not everything they did was exceptional, and like many bands of the era, albums tended to be built around one or two potential hit singles, plus one or two possible follow-up singles, and a whole load of dubious fillers. so there's a mix of good, bad, and indifferent on all the albums collected here.

Interestingly, included as a bonus on Little Queen is Stairway to Heaven (live), and gives knowledgable fans some idea why the worldwide music press declared them to be "The New Led Zep" when they first started touring in the mid 1970s. Be that as it may, they never quite achieved the success that was laid out for them, and turned to formula song writing and power ballads.

Dog and Butterfly, slated by the UK music press but arguably something of a masterpiece, is a fine example of the best and worst of Heart: some long, powerful, progressive pieces, mixed with clumsy short rockers.

Sadly missing are Dreamboat Annie and Magazine, two quintessential albums; as they did not come out on the same record label as this collection, no doubt there was some problem getting permissions to include them. such is the music industry....

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart attack 27 Mar 2014

What made Heart famous before they were international. Faultless melodic rock. Wasn't fashionable then and isn't now, but this is the 10 years before global superstardom and AOR heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars great value 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
These 'packages' are great value. I have several by other bands and bought this one 'cos I love Hearts earlier stuff. Also easy to stick on the car stereo without having to mess about with awkward plastic cases. If you want to listen to the music-buy this, if you want to stare at the sleeves and microscopic cd booklets, go elsewhere!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart - Original Album Classics box set 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Exactly as I hoped.. I bought this as I have no way of listening to my original album (LP) collection of the same recordings and wanted to listen to them again, the packaging is a little "cheap and cheerful" and doesn't reflect the original but that's not a problem as I have the originals so just needed the CD versions for listening purposes..
A great value way to own the first 5 albums...
