Heart Band

The band Heart did not start out with Ann and Nancy Wilson.  The band first formed in Washington state in the late 1960's as The Army, and consisted of no female members until the early 1970's.  The group changed their name to White Heart in the late 60's, then to Heart, then Hocus Pocus, then back to Heart.  The sisters joined the band in the mid 70's.  

In the mid 70's, the band had relocated to Canada, hooked up with a label, and released their first album (Steamboat Annie) in 1976.  This album featured too hit songs:  "Crazy on You" and "Magic Man".  After a legal battle with their original label, Heart continued producing throughout the 70's.  Other 70's songs you may remember include "Barracuda", "Heartless", and "Straight On".

By the early 80's, Heart was still rolling along with the release of Bebe Le Strange in 1980.  Another hit song, "Tell It Like Is", was released on a greatest hits release from 1980.  You may remember the song "Even It Up" from this release.  Other 80's Heart songs you will remember include "City's Burning" from Private Audition (1982), "How Can I Refuse" from Passionworks (1983), "What About Love", "Never", "These Dreams", "Nothin' at All" from Heart (1985), "Alone", "Who Will You Run To", and "There's the Girl" from Bad Animals (1987).  That finished off the 80's as far as hits go, but in the1990, the album Brigade featured a number of hits songs, including "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You", "Wild Child", "Stranded", and "I Didn't Want to Need You".

Post 1990, Heart continued to produce, although they were never able to recapture their former glory.  There were moment's of hiatus, but they have continued in some form or fashion (there has also been some solo efforts).  It is worth mentioning, however, that their 2010 release, Red Velvet Car, did peak at number 10 on the Billboard 200 (not bad, ladies).  As late as 2011 Heart was on tour with Def Leppard.  The Heart Discography is as follows:
