Heart – Little Queen (1977) – Lp

by Record Facts

Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide. Over the group’s four-decade history, it has had three primary lineups, with the constant center of the group since 1973 being sisters Ann Wilson (lead singer) and Nancy Wilson (guitarist). Heart rose to fame in the mid-1970s with music influenced by hard rock and heavy metal, as well as folk music.












Artist:  Heart
Title:  Little Queen
Year:  1977
Format:  LP
Label:  Portrait Records
Catalog#  PRT 82075

Little Queen is the third studio album released by the American rock band Heart. It was released in May 1977 on Portrait Records.

The group intended Magazine to be the official follow-up album to the debut Dreamboat Annie. However, a contract dispute with their label, Mushroom Records, resulted in the group signing with the newly formed Portrait Records, a division of CBS Records (now Sony/BMG).

After acquiring a substantial following with Dreamboat Annie, Heart solidified its niche in the hard rock and arena rock worlds with the equally impressive Little Queen. Once again, loud-and-proud, Led Zeppelin-influenced hard rock was the thing that brought Heart the most attention. But while “Barracuda” and “Kick It Out” are the type of sweaty rockers one thought of first when Heart‘s name was mentioned, hard rock by no means dominates this album. In fact, much of Little Queen consists of such folk-influenced, acoustic-oriented fare as “Treat Me Well” and “Cry to Me.” Anyone doubting just how much Heart‘s ballads have changed over the years.
