Heart celebrate 35th Anniversary of Little Queen on In The Studio

Heart’s 1977 album, “Little Queen,” marks its 35th Anniversary on US radio show In The Studio.

After scoring a Top 10 album with their indie debut “Dreamboat Annie,” Heart launched their follow up with “Little Queen.”

The album demonstrated the band’s musical diversity, from hard rockers “Barracuda,” “Little Queen” and “Kick It Out” to acoustic numbers like “Love Alive” and “Dream of the Archer.”

“You can’t keep those folky roots away,” Ann tells In The Studio host Redbeard. “Nancy and I are such folkies, It’s really amazing. I say that in a good way.”

“I think if there is anything we brought to Rock’n’Roll,”
adds Nancy, “it is the blending of acoustic stylings with heavy rock.”

“Little Queen” became the band's second top ten album, eventually going on to be certified at 3x platinum for 3 million US records sold.

The Wilson sisters also preview some of the personal stories from their
forthcoming memoir, “Dreaming and Kicking: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock & Roll,” which is due September 18 (read more about it here) plus share some new music from their upcoming album “Fanatic,” which will be available October 2.
