On April 17, 2007, the iconic rock group Heart took the stage at The Orpheum Theatre in front of a live audience to perform their spectacular debut album Dreamboat Annie in its entirety for the first time, for a DIRECTV special. The performance aired Mother’s Day 2007, and will be re-aired in conjunction with Shout! Factory’s release of a live DVD and CD of that concert in October 2007.
Dreamboat Annie is the first release in Shout! Factory’s new DVD/CD series “Legendary Albums Live™,” which will feature unforgettable bands performing their quintessential albums live, in sequence, and in their entirety. The artists will also perform songs by the musicians they were listening to at the time for inspiration, and give exclusive interviews. “Legendary Albums Live™” is a partnership between Shout! Factory and DIRECTV, and the recordings are produced by Shout! Factory-owned Blaze TV. DIRECTV will air these memorable performances, and they will subsequently be made available for purchase on DVD and CD through Shout! Factory.
Dreamboat Annie, released in 1976, was the foundation of Heart’s legacy and went on to sell over 3 million copies. Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, the creative spark behind Heart, wrote all of the songs on the album, including the hits “Crazy on You” and “Magic Man.” As part of the “Legendary Albums Live™” program, fans of the band will also be treated to rousing renditions of songs by The Who and Led Zeppelin, and an interview with the band in which they will put the album in historical context.
The Wilson sisters have continued making great albums and thrilling live audiences in the 31 years since Dreamboat Annie’s release. Lead singer, Ann Wilson, recently released her first-ever solo album, Hope & Glory, on Zoe/Rounder Records, on September 11.
