This is a much improved greatest hits package of Heart over the 1980 Greatest/Live.
Brian O'Marra
A great album is waiting for you to pick up a copy for yourselves, if you do not have one already.
Chad DeFeo
I think anyone who wants a good array of music should add this to their collection.

This is a much improved greatest hits package of Heart over the 1980 Greatest/Live. Instead of stopping with the 1980 cover of Aaron Neville: Tell It Like It Is, it covers the early eighties albums Private Audition and Passionworks.
This boasts superb sound, excellent sequencing (chronologically), and fine liner notes.
However, one curious choice seems to go unnoticied by a number of reviewers...Dreamboat Annie is NOT the familiar version. Instead of choosing the two minute title track, which is the popular version and which launched their career, they opt for the reprise!
Not too bad a version, slower, heavier, but an odd choice. Had they chose the title track, there may have been room for another cut (Mistral Wind or Allies, perhaps).
True, at the time the title song to their first lp was on the Capitol These Dreams best-of, so that meant less overlapping, but this has now been deleted. The replacment will be due in late May and will drop all of the seventies tracks (it will be Greatest Hits 1985-1995).
Maybe Epic will fix this error and put the original version of Dreamboat Annie on this.
Still, it's great to have fine cuts from Little Queen like Kick It Out, and Love Alive that were not on the previous best-of.
A terrific greatest hits of the prime era of Heart.

I have all their albums but still decided to buy "The Greatest Hits", I just couldn't resist. Ann Wilson has been a major influence to me. I remember reading my sister's rock mags and seeing her voted top female rock artist in all of them for several years, mags such as Creem, RIP etc. I've always credited the Wilson sisters as being the first "true" female "rockers" in music. Pioneers paving the way for groups like "The Runaways" and "Hole." Ann's voice is to this day the best and she definitely could have given Robert Plant a run for his money during the 70's. Nancy just showed all the guys that it wasn't a boys club anymore.
I love their songs, especially the early ones, and will forever love the vocals. Wow, what power, expression and range...my boyfriend even learned 3 of their songs on guitar due to my "Heart" obsession. Sure, they're alot of cool bands around, Creed, Live, Fuel etc., but "Heart" always touches my soul.
I love this compilation of songs...what more can I say...they're incredibly talented woman.

A few months ago, I wrote an album review for Heart's
Definitive Collection. Well, I purchased this album
and Definitive Collection, because each album contained
tracks the other album didn't have.
Strong, Strong, Wind, Magic Man, Crazy on You,
Dreamboat Annie, Heartless, Bebe Le Strange, Rock
and Roll [Live] are the tracks that available on this
album, but not available on Definitive Collection.
Definitive Collection contains the following tracks
that aren't available on Greatest Hits: Dream of The
Archer, Cry To Me, Lighter Touch, Nada One, Sweet
Darlin, Perfect Stranger, Allies and Johnny Moon.
In my opinion, what Sony should have done is
taken the tracks exclusive to both collections
and include the common tracks, and release it
as a 2 disc set instead of two separate albums.
This is much better than buying two seperate Heart
compilation albums, which contain common tracks.
The album starts off with a power ballad,
Strong, Strong, Wind, followed by the somewhat
mystical Magic Man. The guitar wails on this track,
and sounds a bit rock and a bit on the blues side.
Crazy on You is just pure hard rock, perhaps even
with a heavy metal edge to it that just rocks the
house down. Dreamboat Annie slows it down a bit,
and isn't so high energy as Crazy on You, but then
again, it's hard to replicate that effort on every
track. I feel we get to the meat of the album from
tracks 6-15. I feel this is Heart at their best.
Dreamboat Annie and other tracks from
their debut album that was missing from Definitive
Collection are made available here.

Though this is good, as is the later hits collection, there is a MUCH better one out there. It's Greatest Hits 1997 which I believe is out of print but can't imagine why because it is far superior to the other two packages and even the new "Essential" collection thats out. You may have to find it used, but Hits 97 is 17 tracks from their entire career with not one weak song. I found it very worth looking for.

This is a decent enough attempt at a "Greatest Hits" package but, like all such efforts, it doesn't represent the artist completely.
"Crazy On You" and "Barracuda" are great Rock singles and there are a half dozen other classic rock-radio tunes here. But the exclusion of some of Heart's quirkier stuff, including the live version of the epic "Mistral Wind," make them seem too much like a female version of Journey. It was the mysterious, fantasy-land stuff that set Heart apart from a lot of the 70s/80s hair bands who really couldn't carry their guitar cases. "Bebe Le Strange" only hints at what I'm talking about.
I'm also dissapointed to find the slower, duller version of "Dreamboat Annie" included on this disc...and who really wanted to hear Heart's version of "Rock and Roll," which should never have gotten further than sound check?
By the way, for the few critics who have taken the opportunity to ridicule "Barracuda" as something less than worthy of airplay...if you were a 16-year old guy when the record was released in 1977, you would understand. Ann Wilson was an awakening.
