Great Rock Albums of the 70s: Heart- Dreamboat Annie

Forget about power ballads such as “What About Love” and “Alone” which Heart were famous for in the 1980s, because a decade earlier, Heart were a true hard rock outfit. I freely admit as a red blooded male, it was the attractiveness of the Wilson sisters that first turned my head in their direction, they were the first true rock chicks, but when I heard this album, I was hooked by their cool hard rock sound.

“Dreamboat Annie” was the album that launched Heart into the ionosphere in rock. It served as the springboard for what would be a string of albuns and singles that would keep them at the top throughout the last half of the 1970s. Hits like “Magic Man” and “Crazy On You,” along with the ballad “Dreamboat Annie,” helped to make this album the great album it became.

    I saw Heart just once in the mid 80’s. Autograph opened for them too. Great show it was. Wish to see Heart live again one day. This album is 100% memorable!

    Um… yes, I always stared at the “Bebe le Strange” album cover when I was a young lad. 🙂

  4. Hello, you used to write great, but the last several articles have been kind of boring… I miss your tremendous writings. Past several posts are just a little out of track! come on!


  5. It is little doubt that this is the best singer in the world! What makes a singer isn’t their vibe, it’s their voice! I don’t like when people judge singers on things that just aren’t that important. Remember, they are entertainers, not congressmen! Let them do their stuff and enjoy the melodies!
