    I never make it to the Live LP. The GH portion is just amazingly beautiful: great compositions; no punches pulled in the performances; amazing engineering and mixing.

    You hear Barracuda or Heartless or Magic Man on the radio for the billionth time and it’s maybe nothing in that context anymore.

    But, on their own, back to back, this band produced some seriously memorable stuff. Top of the line in the 1970s.

    I wish they had just put out a double live LP from the Dog and Butterfly tour or earlier dates for some songs if they preferred. Powerful live band with Roger Fisher. At least there are some nice radio broadcasts from that time.

    I love listening to Dreamboat Annie, the whole album. Wonderful hit songs, but even better in the context of real 70s melodic songwriting.

    'dog and butterfly' is so good and so overlooked in their catalog.

    It’s a shame it’s never been remastered as a 2-CD set.
     
  6. This.

    I actually don't listen to the 1st half of GH/Live ... :) I just care about the live stuff, because I would just listen to the individual studio albums for those songs.

    but ann wilson really does justice to 'tell it like it is".

  8. Agreed. And that's on the live "half". :)

    Is there a good CD release of this? Have a lot of the original albums on vinyl.

    The CD was a hatchet job and left stuff off...

    I saw Heart open for ELO at Pontiac Silverdome in 1978. Heart killed it!
