Many of the tracks on this stunning debut album are now rightly regarded as classics in the canon, and who could dispute that with the magnificent 'Magic Man' and 'Crazy on You' as the jewels in the crown?
But there is a whole lot more here than just those two major hits - the funky 'White Lightning and Wine' has never showcased Heart in more sexy style, and 'Soul of the Sea' reaches epic porportions in its beautiful harmonies and string arrangements. Three versions of the title track might seem like overkill, but with three very different approaches, you're actually left wanting a FOURTH when the album closes.
Ann and Nancy have rarely reached such a zenith since ('Dog and Butterfly', 'Little Queen', and new CD 'Red Velvet Car' are comparables), and with its 35th anniversary fast approaching, it's about time that this was given the deluxe remastering treatment it so richly deserves!! There must be tons of outtakes, demos and live tracks to add into this to make a fine package - if anyone with any influence is reading this, PLEASE get the men in suits to listen!!!
Now, anyone for a remastered 'Magazine', with both 1977 and 1978 versions included - or am I really just dreaming??
