In 1975, Heart opened the first of two shows for Rod Stewart in front of a sold-out crowd, which unbeknownst to Ann and Nancy Wilson, had rabidly been anticipating their arrival onstage, thanks to early airplay of their ‘Dreamboat Annie’ album that had been released in Canada earlier that year (prior to being released in the U.S. the following year). Only four days before that, they had been fired from a dispiriting club engagement and left wondering what their next move would be.
Think your schedule is packed to the gills? Then you haven't seen Ann and Nancy Wilson's datebook for the rest of 2012.
On June 5, Heart are releasing their first box set, 'Strange Euphoria.' The three-CD collection, which was personally curated by Ann and Nancy Wilson, spans the band's entire career—from their first recorded song, released under the moniker Ann Wilson & The Daybreaks, to songs from their latest album, 2010's 'Red Velvet Car.'
