Heart's classic 1977 album "Little Queen" finally gets the remastering it deserves. The sound quality is excellent and is much better than the old version on Epic Records. The album was slightly harder than Heart's debut released a year earlier called "Dreamboat Annie". Fm radio stations jumped on the Led Zeppelin influenced rocker "Barracuda" (it's still a favorite on many classic rock stations today) which in my opinion is the best song on the album, followed closely by "Kick It Out" and the funky "Little Queen". But the album contains some acoustic gems as well such as "Love Alive", "Treat Me Well" and "Cry To Me". There are several bonus tracks, "Too Long A Time" which is an early demo version of "Love Alive" and a "live" cover version of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" which is excellent (Heart lead guitarist Roger Fisher does a fine job copying Zep's Jimmy Page's guitar licks on this classic song). Unfortunately, the liner notes are minimal, but there are some colorful pics of the band. A classic Heart cd worth adding to any rock lover's collection. Also, out now and newly remastered are Heart's "Bebe Le Strange" and "Dog And Butterfly".

I used to play "Love Alive" every morning on my way to work, so I have strong memories of hearing that music play as the sun was coming up through the trees along the highway. What Heart created here, with their whole Renaissance thing, has been so strong, and it has lived on and on. For example, I've heard Outgrabe talk about the influence of Heart on them, and you can really hear it in their song "Witching Hour," which reminds me of "Dream of the Archer."

I never get tired of listening to this CD and Dreamboat Annie. I guess it's the combination of wistfulness and power. Something about this music speaks right to the core of who I am.

I had this album on vinyl, 8Trac and casset. I wore every one out.

I remember seeing Heart just before this album was released. Like every other young man in the room I fell in love when Ann Wilson sang "Love Alive." I bought it the week it came out and have loved it ever since. Like Dreamboat, and now Jupiter.

So here's the deal...
This is an album that every Rock fan should own. The remastered values are good and the added tracks fit in whith the theme of the album well. Long live the Queens of Rock!

Like other Heart fans, I awaited this release to be re-mastered, and was happy it finally had been. But oh no...a very tin-eared engineer has poorly performed such an enjoyable task! The other glowing reviews about sound (on this page and elsewhere) are way off. Apparently, they are unfamiliar with the original sound of the vinyl...the depth, detail, and richness that the LP had. So, it's a great release that sounds awful...stick with the LP for now!

If this entire album had sounded like "Barracuda," this might have been called Big Queen. What this song did establish with that galloping, snarling guitar was that women could rock. Although they did reach rock peaks with the Bebe Le Strange and Heart albums, this set the standard, something that would be duplicated in the song "Back In Black II" from Desire Walks On.
The next three songs have a kind of nature theme sound to them. Must be that album cover with the gypsy-like caravan. The mellow "Love Alive" features some exotic instruments, such as a flute, tabla and an autoharp. The tempo then picks up with drums and electric guitar, mirroring that "sunbeam arch thrilled me to my weary heart/It was the prettiest thing I ever seen" line sung a few verses earlier. In some ways, this reminds me of a stripped down "Magic Man."
The brief instrumental "Sylvan Song" has Nancy Wilson and Roger Fisher on mandolins. That and the moog bass by Howard Leese gives it an alternately folky and new age sound to it.
This segues into "Dream Of The Archer", which gives an medieval lyrical image, with Wilson and Fisher still on mandolins. The sylphs in the forest have clearly bewitched the archer here.
"Kick It Out" is the other rocker about a wild child. Her motto: "Kick out your motor and drive/while you're still alive--kick it out."
The next three songs make a sagging midsection that causes me to deduct a point. The title track is a mid-paced number with a prominent bass. Then comes Nancy's solo vocal number, the ballad "Treat Me Well", which has a touch of blues, and is helped out by piano and drums accompaniment. However, this isn't one of their better songs. The quasi-skiffle of "Say Hello" is lively with the mandolin riffs, with Ann's echoing vocals, but...

Most of the time, my reviews reflect the critics, but this is not one of those times. This is a wonderful CD. Every Song either rocks or is beautiful. "Barracuda" rocks and I think that's what led to the downfall of this album. Everyone heard "Barracuda" on the radio and thought the whole album was going to be some female heavy metal excursion. Instead they got songs like "Love Alive" which is much prettier than anything Jewel is putting out right now. "Sylvan Song/Dream of the Archer" has lovely Mandolin riffs, a tuly beautiful pair of songs. "Kick It Out" and "Little Queen" get the band rocking again and "Treat Me Well" is another beautiful song in the "Love Alive" vein. The last three tracks, while passable are not up to the level of the rest and keep this from being a 5 star album. P.S. The Wilson sisters we're definitely at their most beautiful on the cover of this album.
