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.
