Buyer's Guide: Heart

The groundbreaking US band who went from bluesy hard rock to chart-busting AOR anthems via some stone-cold classic cuts.

The funny thing about Heart is that the group began without the two people that would make the band so great and so significant: singer Ann Wilson and her guitar-playing kid sister Nancy. In fact, Heart were born out of a regulation all-male band, The Army, which formed in Seattle in the mid-60s. In 1971 they took on the name Heart. But it was only after Ann joined the band in 1972, followed by her younger sister Nancy in 1974, that Heart would find a signature sound and global fame.
