"Dreamboat Annie" (Vinyl)

The debut album from Canadian sister & co. Heart was released in the U.S. in 1976 and was carried on the success of the singles "How Deep it Goes" and "Magic Man."

The album showed off a unique recipe of hard rock, guitar riff-driving and folk influence that hadn't really been heard before.

The most noticeable thing about Heart is Ann Wilson's deep-throated vocals.  They're often in the same register as many of her heavy rock male counterparts, but the timbre is completely different.

I'm enjoying this album much more than I expected to.  The album cover is a little ABBA, so I'm excited to hear so much Zeppelin.
