Continuing our Record of the Week with a Love Month addition, another single from Heart.
Shortly after Heart became a huge success with Dreamboat Annie, they signed a contract with Portrait Records. The folks at Mushroom Records didn't take too kindly to this and the lawsuits ensued.
Mushroom also responded by issuing a very incomplete album, Magazine, with this as the leadoff single.
Though must of the Magazine album is filler, this track is a keeper, and Ann and Nancy still play it today.
Heartless on the Mushroom Records label.
Heart performs Heartless in 1976, two years before it would be released.
Here's an interesting addition to the story. Not long after Heart left Mushroom, one of the label's founders, Shelly Siegel, died. Despite all of the pending lawsuits, Ann and Nancy, the rest of Heart, and some of the other people associated with Mushroom Records placed this nice tribute to him in Billboard.
'til we post another Heart single (soon)
