THE NADIR OF HEART’S CAREER – ALL I WANNA DO IS MAKE LOVE TO YOU
By Shane Pinnegar
No matter which era or style of Heart’s incredible career is your favourite, you’re well catered for.
The 70’s gave us such mega rock anthems as Crazy On You, Magic Man and Barracuda, not to mention more acoustic offerings as Dog & Butterfly. The big-haired pomp of the 80’s saw them enjoy a huge career resurgence with hits Alone, Never and These Dreams. Their electric works truly do electrify, while the sisters Wilson can hypnotise with their gentler, folkier outings.
Ann’s vocals and Nancy’s extraordinary guitar playing are a potent combination, but their trajectory has been up and down. After a fantastic run during the 70’s, in the 80’s they’d had a few flops and their record company insisted they bring in outside writers to help them craft another hit.
