Join Heart, the revolutionary rock band fronted by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, as they bring passion and energy to an explosive 23-song set that touches on every era of their awe-inspiring career - from Dreamboat Annie's 'Magic Man' and 'Crazy on You' to the '80s hits Hearts most recent studio album, Jupiter's Darling, plus rare covers of Led Zeppelin's 'Misty Mountain Hop' and Elton John's 'Love Song'...

Heart: Live captures sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson’s complete uncut performance on the acclaimed PBS concert series Soundstage. Smash hits like 'Barracuda' and 'Even It Up' share equal billing with the ‘80s ballad-tinged 'These Dreams' along with songs off their latest album, 'Jupiter’s Darling'.

While I'll admit I'm not a huge Heart fan, I did buy a couple of their albums at the height of their fame. One song is very noticeably absent from this set: 'All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You', which I'd argue is a lot more well known than a lot of tracks on this DVD.

Also, the sisters aren't fantastic live either. While there are a few flat notes, their performance is seriously toned down when compared to the voice-belting studio recordings, and the other guitarists aren't overly impressive either. Some of the guitar solos are pretty flat when you compare them to the those on the studio based albums.

The 23 tracks, for those who are interested are:

Kick It Out
Straight On
Oldest Story In The World
Perfect Goodbye
These Dreams
The Battle Of Evermore
Love Song
Lost Angel
Magic Man
Crazy On You
Bebe Le Strange
Fallen Ones
Make Me
Even It Up
Dog & Butterfly
Love Alive
Black Dog
Misty Mountain Hop

Extras include an 8 min, 47 sec interview with the sisters.

This is really only going to appeal to those that have followed the band from its early beginnings up until the present day. Those that only know a couple of their songs may well be disappointed by this release.
