  1. A great pick Chuck.

    I saw Heart in Kamloops back in the early 70’s. They were the warm up band for B.T.O.

    It was a real twofer for me that night. Took a week before my ears stopped ringing.

  2. Nancy sings on this instead of Ann, for a change. And it was co- written by Bernie Taupin, who was taking a break from collaborating with Elton John.
