First, let me say that I'm a HUGE Ann/ Nancy/Heart Fan. I have ALL their recordings as Heart, Love Mongers, & both Ann & Nancy Wilson's solo albums. With that said, you know basically ANY recording the sisters come out with, I'm going to buy. I'm a FAN! period. There's NO argument that these ladies are 1st class artists all the way. Now, that said, You know I wanted to LOVE this CD. Ann Wilson's voice & performance always appears to be top notch and sounds like she's giving it her all, I'm probably being generous by giving it 3 stars, another artist would have probably gotten 2 stars. The reason being has been stated in other reviews. The bummer, the first track, Buffalo Springfield's "For what It's worth" IS a terrible arrangement Disappointing. When you see how Ann has tackled the Led Zeppelin songs in the past, you know what she's capable of. This song is just annoying, almost Calypso style that just doesn't fit. The other two songs are okay. The final song is just downright irritating and has to be positively the WORST recorded song of the Wilson/Heart catalog. Again, Ann's performance is there but my gosh this sounds like a frickn' pirated/bootleg song recorded out of somebody's basement Or when you go into a club and the singer has the mike up too close to their face. Now, as much as I'm a fan, why Ann would allow this recording release is beyond me, she owes more to her fans than this. It's not like she should need the money. And for the "record" (No pun intended) those that criticize that it's only 4 songs, well it states it's an EP, which maybe the younger fans don't know, stands for "Extended Play", which is what the old records where called back in the LP days when the artists had more than a single to release, but not enough for a full album. So complaining about this should be a mute point. What scares me is that this is called #1 (EP), which indicates to me that Ann may be intending to release more recordings like this. For goodness sake, Please Ann, Nancy, Heart, DON"T DO THIS TO YOUR FANS!!!

Even completists may have trouble accepting this four-song tease as anything other than a throwaway. Heart’s lead singer cruises through three blues-flavored covers and one original. We all know how powerfully Wilson handles a blues, given the proper material (e.g., her raw improvisations opening “Crazy on You” from Heart’s live The Road Home). Unfortunately, such magic doesn’t happen here. The opener, a take on Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth,” is given a novel percussive clatter that initially catches your ear, but never develops into anything else new. “Fool No More” is all Wilson’s, but the song itself is somewhat nondescript. Wilson covers Aretha Franklin next, but I would have preferred her take on a powerhouse like “Respect,” or “Pink Cadillac.” Instead, “Ain’t No Way,” a 6/8-time yawner, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Finally, Ray Charles’ “Danger Zone” is presented with Wilson’s vocal run through a distortion filter, presumably to suggest emotional drive; nope, it only suggests her mic needs repairs. Apparently, so does Wilson’s management; this castoff does little to add to Wilson’s cachet or Heart’s throb. **

Like Thing!2, this is OK musically, not great, not awful, just OK. Also like Thing!2, there are only 4 cuts on the CD, so it is quite pricey for what you get.
I love Ann Wilson but the last track sounded bad. Sounded like feedback or distortion. The other songs...fantastic!
I'm an Ann Wilson fan, but this effort is poor! Save your money! Product was satisfactory but music was not!!!
